Black Sabbath Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Kino's 1080p/AVC-encoded presentation of Black Sabbath is sourced from the same raw transfer that Arrow Video used for their U.K. release of the film; however, Arrow went on to perform some additional digital cleanup, while Kino basically left the print "as is." (Kino also stuck with only the Italian cut, whereas Arrow's release includes both the Italian and English versions.) Thankfully, there's no significant print damage here, only the usual—occasional white specks, light scratches, and bits of hair stuck in the edges of the frame. If you've seen the film on DVD before, you'll notice an immediate and substantial improvement. Grain is present throughout—there are no noise reduction abuses here—and the image has a very natural, filmic look, untouched by edge enhancement or other types of filtering. The image is a little soft, on the whole—I suspect this goes back to the source materials and not some shortcoming in the digitization process—but clarity is far better here than it ever has been on home video. The film's distinct and evolving color palette looks great too, from the elegant tones of The Telephone to the cold blues of The Wurdalek and the flashing neon purples and greens of The Drop of Water. There are some brief color and brightness fluctuations, but otherwise the picture is very stable, with good contrast and saturation. The Arrow Video release seems a bit more vivid—perhaps punched up a bit during the restoration process—but Kino's is at least true to source.


Black Sabbath Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The film's uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0 mono track also has some slight age damage—a low, occasionally audible hiss, some random pops and crackles —but nothing particularly distracting, especially if you're used to watching low-budget 1960s horror. This is the Italian cut of the film, so it includes a brassy, moody score by Roberto Nicolosi—the U.S. version was scored by Les Baxter—and the music sounds great, particularly over the opening credits. The dubbing is surprisingly decent too, and the dialogue is always clear and balanced in the mix, with no peaking or muffling. The disc includes optional English subtitles, which appear in easy-to-read white lettering.
