Black Sunday Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Black Sunday is resurrected on Blu-ray with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that does justice to Mario Bava's mesmerizing visuals. First off, as you've comes to expect from Kino releases, there's no digital manipulation here at all—no detail-smearing noise reduction, no halo-inducing edge enhancement, no excessive contrast boosting, or any other unnecessary filtering. No compression/encode issues either. On the flip-side, there's been no frame-by-frame restoration, but we've lucked out here; the source print is in very good condition. You'll notice intermittent white and black specks and the occasional small scratch, but no major damage whatsoever. In one scene near the end of the film, a vertical white line does appear at the far left edge of the frame for a few seconds, but this is the only real anomaly. The 35mm picture often commands an impressive amount of depth, and Bava's chiaroscuro lighting is reproduced wonderfully, with deep blacks and crisp but never overblown whites. In between is a rich array of grays. Clarity is much improved from previous home video releases, and there's plenty of newfound detail, especially in close-ups, like the gnarly views of Asa's hole-riddled face. Bava fans should be pleased with this significant picture quality upgrade.


Black Sunday Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Kino brings Black Sunday to life with an uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0 mono track that sounds as good, I suspect, as this film will ever sound. Like many Italian movies from this era, the dubbing is incredibly obvious—not even Barbara Steele's real voice was used—but the dialogue is at least cleanly recorded and always comprehensible. Bava makes great use of occasional sound effects—a low wailing coming from the mausoleum, a spooky wind that clangingly blows over suits of armor—and these are all as potent as can be expected. Binding everything together is a superbly creepy old-time horror movie score, with snaking bassoon lines and quivering strings. The high-end can be a bit fuzzy and muddled at times, but this is probably the best Kino had to work with. Unfortunately, there are no subtitle options on the disc for those who might need or want them.
