Angel Heart Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

As he nears his catch, the identity of the missing person is closer to him than he thinks.

Angel Heart Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Wow! Maybe my memory is playing tricks on me, but I have a distinct recollection of the VHS tape of Angel Heart being a dark and grimy affair, littered with omnipresent grain and virtually no contrast. I did get the Special Edition DVD when it came out, and watched it then, and appreciated the significant image upgrade that that version provided. But nothing really prepared me for the brilliantly clear and clean image of this 1080p/AVC encoded image. At last one can fully understand why Parker sings DP Seresin's praises so highly. Though often very dark and at times purposefully devoid of saturation and with a certain intentional softness which permeates many scenes, this is a film dripping in shades of lugubrious color, from the deep midnight blues which open the film, to the shocking gashes of red which portend the many murders the film contains. The film is purposefully blanched in several segments, but even those offer superior detail and contrast, especially when compared to previous releases of the film. About midway through the film, in a brief interior scene with Rourke, I had to wonder if a different film stock was utilized, as that brief moment was noticeably softer and with more apparent grain than the rest of the film. Otherwise, though, this is a really remarkable upgrade. Scenes of New Orleans streets bristle with detail and you can see for what seems like miles, far into the background of several scenes. Black levels are consistent and contrast is remarkably good, especially considering how purposefully dark a lot of this film is. A lot of the interior scenes have such abundant grain that it may bother some viewers, but I personally found it completely natural looking and in keeping with Parker's vision for the film.


Angel Heart Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The DTS HD-MA 5.1 mix offers some excellent low frequencies throughout the film which help maintain an aura of menace and dread. The repeated whispers of "Harry" and "Johnny" emanate from the side channels with the sort of subconscious terror that haunts a recurrent nightmare. The bulk of the film is simply dialogue, and that is presented cleanly and crisply through the front channels. Surround channels kick in in a couple of great sequences, notably the "voodoo" ritual, where the chanting and drum beats surround the listener with a cacophony of sounds, the "raining blood" sex scene which made the film so infamous before its release, and in a couple of car chase scenes. Otherwise, this is a remarkably subtle sound mix for a horror film, one which makes something seemingly banal like the sudden burst of chickens cackling a portent of terror. Pine's saxophone offers a reedy, almost vocal underpinning to Trevor Jones' underscore, and it is mixed well throughout the film.
