Cape Fear

 (1962)

Cape Fear Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Small-town lawyer Sam Bowden's life becomes torturous when Max Cady re-enters his life. Cady went to jail for 8 years after Bowden testified that Cady attacked a young woman. Now that Cady has been released, he begins to terrorize Bowden and his family, particularly targeting Bowden's daughter, Nancy. Initially, Cady uses his newfound knowledge of the law (learned in prison) to annoy the Bowdens, then poisons the family dog... Who's next ?

Cape Fear Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Cape Fear is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Universal Films with a VC-1 encoded 1080p transfer in 1.85:1. Universal seems to be at least trying to moderate its much maligned use of DNR on its catalog titles, but this film's VC-1 codec may indicate an older high definition transfer that is only now seeing the light of day. While this is nowhere near the most egregious example of Universal's tendency to remove grain, those who dislike even moderate DNR will probably be less than completely pleased with the look of this Blu-ray. There is fine grain obviously apparent in virtually all of the film, and in fact some of the second unit footage boasts rather large amounts of grain, but there's still a slightly scrubbed look here that indicates Universal's penchant for DNR. That said, the overall image here is nicely crisp, with good to very good fine detail and really well modulated gray scale. Blacks are consistent and quite deep and whites bristle nicely without ever blooming. This is probably one of those "glass half full, glass half empty" situations where each individual viewer's sensitivity to even relatively moderate DNR will play a large part in how they respond to this presentation.


Cape Fear Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Cape Fear features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio Mono mix pumped through two channels which offers good reproduction of all dialogue and especially of Bernard Herrmann's brooding score. J. Lee Thompson thought of Cape Fear as a kind of homage to Hitchcock, so along with then-recent Psycho alum Martin Balsam in the cast, Thompson also hired Hitchcock's frequent collaborator Herrmann, who provided a neatly minimalist score that is largely based on a four note brass motive that Herrmann tweaks in inventive ways throughout the film. Fidelity is quite good, though obviously very narrow, with good midrange and just slightly clipped sounding high range at times.
