Child's Play Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in 1080p utilizing the AVC codec (at a bitrate that hovers around a healthy 35Mbps), Child's Play doesn't represent a dramatic visual improvement in the transition to Blu-ray, but still looks decent for a film of this age. First and foremost, the level of fine-object detail on display isn't what I'd call impressive, though the image still retains a smooth film-like texture. Those of you who are looking for confirmation that this is an accurate reflection of the source material will be happy to hear that there's a fine level of film grain noticeable throughout the picture, meaning the haziness that permeates the picture from time to time is not a result of excessive DNR. From a color standpoint, the palette is largely natural and vibrant, though I noticed several scenes where skin tones took on a yellowish hue (particularly noticeable in an early scene around the jewelry counter at the mall). Continuing with the positive attributes of the transfer, black levels offer a nice level of depth and contrast exhibits appropriate differentiation throughout the full runtime of the film. I never noticed the presence of digital artifacts or edge enhancement, resulting in an overall impression that this is a proficient (but not spectacular) visual offering from MGM that offers a satisfying experience for long-time Chucky fans.


Child's Play Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

While the visual upgrade doesn't deliver in spades, the audio experience is a true revelation. I never expect to be blown away by lossless tracks of films that exceed twenty years in age, but that's exactly what happened as I watched the opening chase sequence of the film. The primary cause for excitement is the use of every speaker in the soundstage to deliver some truly rousing sequences. You'll notice Chucky's footsteps behind you as they pass from the right to the left side of the room, and gunshots ricochet in perfect response to the onscreen action. In addition, your subwoofer is afforded an LFE track that contains some wonderful booming explosions, which is typically a rarity in the sound design on horror films of this age. Continuing with the positives, the balance of various elements in the sound mix is exceptional (without a single aspect overpowering the others), and the clarity of the dialogue is exceptional. From an audio standpoint, Child's Play is a true revelation on this release, showing just how good an aging horror film can sound.
