Carrie Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

MGM presents Carrie on Blu-ray with an underwhelming 1080p, MPEG-2 encoded transfer and framed inside a 1.85:1 window. Blu-ray fans uninterested in transfers that feature heavy grain fields and excessive noise will want to avoid this film completely. Grain is ever-present, clearly noticeable in every scene, and serves as the transfer's most noticeable characteristic. Some scenes do clear up a bit, the outdoor shot of Carrie walking home after her dismissal from school early in the film serving as one example. The transfer also appears generally dim and dull, with faded colors, minimal detail, and little in the way of absolute clarity. Blacks are also less-than-stellar, generally ranging between acceptably dark and stable to a medium shade of gray. The film also sees a tremendous amount of overblown whites and a glow about much of the transfer, but these characteristics, like the grain, seem inherent to the source. The prom scenes feature a rather harsh red-tinted lighting scheme that dominates the sequence and compliments very well what is to come for Carrie as the night wears on. Carrie does enjoy mostly stable-looking flesh tones. No doubt Carrie's transfer will be a source of contention amongst Blu-ray fans as they try to balance source material and director intent with the film's Blu-ray presentation. It's likely that the film will never look much better than it does here.


Carrie Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

Carrie fails to ignite Blu-ray despite the inclusion of a DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless mix, presented in conjunction with the film's monaural audio track. This presentation is front heavy, sometimes sounding detached from the picture. Music plays with a bit of a harsh edge, as do the many screams heard in the film. The track barely sees an improvement over the mono offering; it certainly doesn't spread far from the center channel and offers minimal improvement in clarity. Some rock music played at the prom offers slightly more clarity and realism than does the music heard previous; it delivers some nice lows and spreads out a bit further from the center than do the track's other elements. Only near the end of the film does the track manage to place discrete effects all around the soundstage. It picks up in intensity over the last 20 minutes, sounding fuller and more aggressive than it did before. Of course, this segment offers the only true "action" moments in the film that call for more aggressive use of sound. Dialogue is adequately delivered with no distortions or difficulties with discernment and is the highlight of the track. Carrie isn't meant to sound like the latest and greatest Action movie, and like the video, it's likely presented here about as well as it ever will be.
