Buffy the Vampire Slayer

 (1992)

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Blu-ray offers solid video and audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

A fully accessorized L.A. high school cheerleader is informed by a mysterious stranger that she is destined to battle vampires. Soon she's wreaking havoc on a local chapter of bloodsuckers. But when the top vampire vows revenge, it totally fouls up her social schedule. The prelude to Buffytasticness.

For more about Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Blu-ray release, see Buffy the Vampire Slayer Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Starring: Kristy Swanson, Donald Sutherland, Paul Reubens, Luke Perry, Rutger Hauer, Hilary Swank
Director: Fran Rubel Kuzui

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The cinematographer for Buffy the Vampire Slayer was James Hayman, who, shortly after completing this project, gave up cinematography to become a successful television producer. Maybe Hayman's career trajectory has something to do with the erratic quality of the film's photography, which is reflected in the Blu-ray's 1080p, AVC-encoded transfer. Scenes in brightly lit interiors or daylight outdoors are generally colorful, detailed, have good black levels and show a grain pattern that is natural, controlled and unobtrusive. Problems emerge as soon as we get into dark interiors, night scenes or "period" flashbacks. Blacks begin to crush toward grey, shadow detail washes out, and the film's grain becomes heavy and noticeable. (The good news, of course, is that the grain hasn't been filtered away, which means that the image detail has been left intact.)

I suspect that some of this was done intentionally, either to create "atmosphere" or to disguise budgetary limitations in the production design. Either way, the Blu-ray image appears to replicate the source faithfully, in that the problematic images are specific to individual scenes and betray none of the tell-tale signs of having been introduced by the transfer process (e.g., "hanging" or clumping grain, smearing, motion or compression artifacts). This is a film-like image, if not always a beautiful film-like image. Anyone curious to see the variation in the film's imagery should click on the "Screenshots" tab, where I have tried to include a selection that runs the gamut.


Buffy the Vampire Slayer Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The film's soundtrack was stereo, and the DVD's soundtrack was DD 4.0. It's surprising, then, to find a 7.1 soundtrack, encoded in DTS lossless, on the Blu-ray. The track is clean and has good fidelity, with voices clearly rendered, good bass extension and surprisingly effective musicality for Carter Burwell's score and the rather dated song selections (notably, the Divinyls' cover of "I Ain't Gonna Eat Out My Heart Anymore"). But the surround ambiance isn't notably immersive, and rear-channel effects are modest. I continue to wonder why soundtracks from the pre-discrete era get remixed for 5.1, let alone 7.1, when the sound design wasn't created for these formats. The results are rarely satisfying, and I'm beginning to suspect it's primarily a matter of marketing.
