An American Werewolf in London Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

An American Werewolf in London gets a decent Blu-ray treatment, but don't go in expecting a Rick Baker-worthy transformation in visual quality. The film's age is definitely apparent in the 1080p/VC-1 encoded transfer, with a look that's softer and more grainy than modern viewers have come to expect. Still, I was mostly pleased with the results. The first thing you'll notice is that the scenes out on the moors—especially those filmed around dusk—exhibit a buzzing layer of detail-diffusing grain. Lines in the landscape take on a slightly blurry, undefined look, and the sky shakes with mosquito-like swarms of noise. You'll be glad to hear, however, that the picture quality seems to drastically improve in later scenes.

When the story shifts to London proper, the image is far cleaner. Grain is still undeniably present —I wouldn't want it any other way, honestly—but texture and fine detail are much sharper and overall clarity is about average, I'd say, for a film from the early 1980s. Close-ups, in particular, look crisp and resolute. Colors aren't incredibly saturated, but David and Jack's jackets pop nicely in contrast with the muted hues of the moors, and the ample blood is a bright, vivid shade of red. Black levels are a bit more troublesome. Most of the daytime scenes have a decent enough sense of contrast, but darker interiors can occasionally look washed-out and crushed simultaneously. The best example of this is when Jack comes to the nurse's flat to warn David for the second time. Still, the image quality gets a marked bump from previous DVD releases, and fans of the film should be pleased by the look. The worst thing the producers of this disc could have done would be to DNR the image to Wales and back, but thankfully that's not the case here.


An American Werewolf in London Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

An American Werewolf howls at the moon on Blu-ray with a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track that adequately brings the film's lycanthropic horrors to life, even if the sound design is a bit dated. Surround use can be stocky and unconvincing—I could visualize the sound editor twisting the pan pots—but the rears get a decent amount of activity. Right from the start, wind whips ominously through the surround channels, later accompanied by loud claps of rippling thunder. As David and Jack find themselves encircled on the moors, the guttural growl of the wolf can be heard from all directions. In London, you'll notice occasional traffic sounds, but where you'd expect to hear big cross-channel movements—the Piccadilly Circus bang-up near the end of the film—there's hardly a squeal from the surround speakers. In terms of dynamic range, the film's moon-themed soundtrack —including three different versions of "Blue Moon"—shows off some round, substantial bass and horns that cut cleanly through the high-end. Dialogue is almost always clear and intelligible, though I did notice that a few lines have the hollowness of a muffled mid-range. No biggie, though. My only complaint—and this isn't exactly unexpected for a horror film—is that some of the sound effects are too jarring and loud compared to the rest of the track.
