Baron Blood Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.74:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Mario Bava's Baron Blood arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Arrow Video.

Please note that the screencaptures included with our review appear in the following order:

1. Screencaptures #1-9 are from the longer Export Version.
2. Screencaptures #10-19 are from the shorter AIP Version.

The basics here are intact. Despite the fact that there is some wear and occasionally contrast fluctuates a bit, image depth and clarity are pleasing. Detail and especially shadow definition also fluctuate, but the film has a stable organic look. To be perfectly clear, there are absolutely no problematic post-production degraining or sharpening corrections. Color reproduction is also pleasing, though during select transitions some extremely minor color instability is present. Large debris, cuts, damage marks, and stains have been removed as best as possible. Ultimately, while it is obvious that the film has not undergone an extensive and expensive complete makeover, the final result here is indeed very good. Naturally, I am convinced that anyone looking for a good organic presentation of Baron Blood will be pleased with the high-definition transfer.

The quality of the AIP Version is very similar to that of the Export Version. There are no traces of excessive degraining or sharpening corrections. Color saturation is also virtually identical. There are no large debris, buts, damage marks, or stains.

(Note: This is a Region-B"locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Baron Blood Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are three audio tracks on this Blu-ray release. The Export Version and the AIP Version come with English LPCM 2.0 tracks, while the Italian-language version, Gli orrori del castello di Norimberga, comes with an Italian LPCM 2.0 track. The Export Version and the AIP Version also come with optional English SDH subtitles, while the Italian version comes with optional English subtitles.

The English LPCM 2.0 tracks are fairly similar. Overall dynamic intensity is limited, but this should not be surprising considering how and under what conditions Baron Blood was shot. Obviously, the use of different soundtracks for the two versions -- the AIP version replaces Stelvio Cipriani's soundtrack with a new one courtesy of Les Baxter -- introduces some minor discrepancies in terms of balance, but the clarity and depth are indeed very similar. The dialog is stable, but some sporadic thinning, without annoying distortions, is occasionally present. Some light background hiss can also be felt but it never becomes distracting.
