Dark Night of the Scarecrow Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Dark Night of the Scarecrow creeps onto Blu-ray with a VC-1 encoded 1080p transfer in 1.33:1 (remember, this was a 1981 television broadcast). Though this is a 30 year old television commodity, the results are often staggering on this Blu-ray, which boasts impressive sharpness and clarity, as well as extremely well saturated color and more than abundant fine detail. The close-up of the burlap sack hiding hapless Bubba is a good indication of the level of fine detail available throughout this high definition offering, and the overall look of this presentation is extremely filmic, with natural grain and a very well delineated texture. Flesh tones are occasionally just a tad on the ruddy side, but overall color is accurate and very robust. There is some very moderate crush in the darkest nighttime sequences, but it's of trifling concern given the overall stupendous look of this Blu-ray.


Dark Night of the Scarecrow Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Dark Night of the Scarecrow is presented with two lossless audio options, its original mono soundtrack delivered via an LPCM 2.0 mix, and a rather artful if minimalist surround repurposing courtesy of an uncompressed LPCM 5.1 track. The mono track is damage free, and offers wonderful clarity with regard to Glenn Paxson's marvelously creepy score, certainly one of the best from any 1980s television movie. The surround track also reproduces Paxson's score with just a bit more depth and nuance, and it also places occasional foley effects with discrete channelization, though the bulk of the track is still anchored rather firmly in the front three channels. Fidelity in both of these tracks is excellent, with clear and clean dialogue, and well prioritized effects and underscore. Abundant low end also helps to create a suitably foreboding mood throughout the film.
