Baron Blood Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Don't be entirely put off by Baron Blood's exceptionally grimy title sequence, which is covered in heavy specks and what appears to be two separate layers of grain—from the background image and the foreground titles—interposed harshly on top of one another. I promise, it gets better. At least, somewhat better. The film's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer—taken from an original 35mm negative—is certainly an improvement over prior DVD editions, but this is, has been, and always will be a soft, grubby-looking b-movie from Italy's low-budget horror king. Even in tight closeups, the image is never tightly resolved, with fuzzy textures and distinct lack of truly fine detail. This isn't Kino-Lorber's fault; it's just the inherent quality of the lenses, film stock, and lighting used by Bava and his crew. For the most part, the encode itself seems entirely true to source. There's no grain-erasing noise reduction here, no blatant edge enhancement, and—beyond some fleeting banding during the scene where Eva runs through the fog—no overt compression issues. There's been no restorative digital clean-up either, so you'll definitely spot small scratches and flecks of debris throughout, but this does give the semi-satisfying illusion that you're watching an authentically beat-up print projected live. Color is reproduced well, with no major fluctuations or thinness, and contrast seems accurate, neither too punched up nor noticeably flat.


Baron Blood Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Like the picture quality, Baron Blood's uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0 track has its share of age and budget-related issues, but nothing unexpected from this kind of gothic b-horror 1970s fare. There's a low but perceptible background hiss that runs through most of the film, a few pops and crackles, and dialogue that—while always comprehensible—can occasionally sound thick and slightly muffled. Also, like most Italian-made movies from the period, the dubbing is fairly obvious much of the time. All that aside, there are no real issues here—no channels cutting out, no weird volume fluctuations, no abrasive peaking. The music by Stelvio Ciprani—who had previously scored Bava's Twitch of the Death Nerve—is unsurprisingly a bit thin, dynamically, but never brittle or harsh. Overall, a listenable, faithful-to-source mix. Do note that while the film is in English, there are no subtitle options on the disc whatsoever for those who might need or want them.
