Animal House

 (1978)

Animal House Blu-ray offers decent video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Unable to gain acceptance at the snootier fraternities they pledge, the Deltas, a motley crew of misfits and sociopaths bent on disrupting the well-starched status quo, engage in various illegalities that land them in hot water with both the stern college dean and the neighboring jock fraternity. Their exploits eventually cause them to be placed on "double-secret probation," until finally, they are kicked out of school and, as the dean reminds them, newly eligible for the Vietnam draft. What's a Delta to do?

Animal House Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Animal House has been cranked off the production line with more disregard for a truly filmic presentation than the recent Blu-ray release of American Graffiti. Don't be fooled by the 1080p/VC-1 encoded transfer's graininess. While the presence of grain can be indicative of a faithful remaster, it can also easily be added or retained via artificial means after unnecessary applications of edge enhancement and noise reduction have taken their respective tolls. Alas, such is the case with Animal House. Not every fine texture has been wiped away, but smearing abounds; not every crisp edge is paired with a thick, white halo, but far too many shots are hindered by unsightly ringing to earn any sort of pass from me. Both EE and DNR are apparent throughout, and border on oppressive at times. It's rather obvious an older DVD-era master has been used to produce the new Blu-ray transfer, which is a real shame considering the film stands as one of the most universally beloved gross-out genre pics. (My video score has been bobbling between a 2.5 and a 3.0 for the better part of a day.)

Animal House does look better than it ever has before, and that will undoubtedly lead some to over-praise its attributes and overlook its shortcomings. Colors have received a modest upgrade, black levels are exceptionally deep, and contrast is serviceable. Unfortunately, skintones are waxy and unnatural, primaries are overcast, crush is rampant, and delineation is unremarkable. (Nighttime scenes are also problematic, but many of their issues trace back to the film's original photography, at least in part). Moreover, detail is average on the whole and the closeups and mid-range shots that do look good only serve to make those plagued by more noticeable EE and DNR all the more disappointing. Thankfully, aside from the aforementioned crush, smearing and ringing (whew), artifacting, banding and other compression anomalies don't stir up any trouble, and the presentation is, if nothing else, reasonably proficient. Ultimately, casual viewers will be pleased with the results, while fledgling and seasoned videophiles, perceptive purists and those pining for a proper restoration will be disheartened by what they see.


Animal House Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Universal's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track isn't hobbled by any major issues and, in my estimation, retains the personality of the film's original mono mix while making smart use of the five additional channels at the new lossless track's disposal. Dialogue is clean and clear throughout (minus a few lines that get unceremoniously muffled in the Delta discord), prioritization rarely falters and other elements, despite having the distinct tininess of '70s-era sound effects, have made the transition to the 21st century without a hitch. The rear speakers aren't aggressive by any means, but they are active, spreading the Faber College campus across the soundfield without resorting to grand directional sleight-of-hand. Some may take issue with such passive support, but faithfulness should always be valued over modern immersiveness when evaluating a 5.1 remix of a thirty-three-year old single-channel source. Low-end output isn't going to crack any plaster either, but it is satisfying and lends welcome presence to a number of scenes. The highlight of the track, though, is the film's music, be it a song from Richard Berry, Sam Cooke, the Isley Brothers or one of the other artists featured in the soundtrack. It all amounts to an enjoyable experience. Front-heavy, yes. But an enjoyable experience all the same.
