Cold Eyes of Fear

 (1971)

Cold Eyes of Fear Blu-ray offers solid video and audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

One man's evening with a prostitute takes a turn for the worse when a pair of hardened criminals show up at the home of the man's uncle, a judge who unfairly convicted one of the criminals years before. Tensions mount as the victims try to turn their captors against one another and save the judge's life, as well as their own.

For more about Cold Eyes of Fear and the Cold Eyes of Fear Blu-ray release, see Cold Eyes of Fear Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Starring: Giovanna Ralli, Frank Wolff, Fernando Rey, Karin Schubert, Gianni Garko, Franco Marletta
Director: Enzo G. Castellari

Cold Eyes of Fear Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

As we've come to expect from Redemption Films titles distributed by Kino-Lorber, Cold Eyes of Fear is essentially presented as-is, with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that hasn't been significantly cleaned or digitally restored. Personally, I don't mind this for films of this sort—it adds to the grimy grindhouse vibe—but be aware that the print is covered with flurrying white and black specks, vertical scratches that come and go, and the occasional shadows of hairs stuck in the film gate. In all other regards, however, this is actually a rather striking high definition presentation for a mid- rate giallo. Natural film grain is untouched by digital noise reduction, there are no signs of edge enhancement or other unnecessary embellishments, and no noticeable compression or encode issues.

Shot by Antonio L. Ballestreros—the cinematographer for Sergio Leone's official directorial debut, The Colossus of RhodesCold Eyes of Fear has an unstylized, almost documentarian look, especially in the early scenes, shot on the streets of nighttime London solely with existing light. Unlike a lot of low-budget Italian productions, the lensing is very crisp here for the most part, and the upgrade to Blu-ray—especially from Redemption's now-ancient DVD—is immediately and consistently visible, with a strong degree of fine detail in the actors' faces and clothing. Color is handled well too, particularly when you consider that the film takes place almost entirely at night and indoors. Saturation is good, black levels rarely infringe on shadow detail, and highlights never blow out harshly. Print damage aside, this is one of the better-looking Kino/Redemption releases lately.


Cold Eyes of Fear Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Kino has given us an uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0 version of the film's original English dub, and like the 35mm transfer, the audio shows its age, with quiet but near-constant crackles and light hisses and splice pops. None of this rises to the level of distraction, though, and for the most part, the mix is easy on the ears, free of high-end brashness and peaking. Dialogue is almost always clearly understand, which is good, since Kino hasn't included any subtitle options—a pet peeve of mine—and the minimal effects have all the presence they require for such a talky, low-key film. The real star of the audio show is Ennio Morricone's spastic jazz freakout of a score, with its guitar squalls and thwacked upright bass, muted trumpet blasts and funky drumming, all of which sounds as good as might be expected.
