Crimewave Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Crimewave is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Shout! Factory with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. Considering the tumultuous history of this film, the elements here are in surprisingly good shape, with no damage of any major import to report. While colors seems to have faded a bit, for the most part the image boasts a reasonably saturated palette and above average fine object detail. There are some issues with contrast, which is variable at times and which leads to some loss of shadow detail in the many dark sequences. Things are fairly soft looking throughout this presentation, most if not all of which can be traced to the original look of the film. Grain is quite evident and no aggressive digital tweaking seems to have been done to this release.


Crimewave Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Crimewave features a DTS-HD Master Audio Mono track pumped out over two channels. Fidelity is just fine if obviously constrained. Dialogue is cleanly presented, sound effects are quite boisterous and the score (which includes some musical numbers) sounds fine.
