Dark Shadows

 (2012)

Dark Shadows Blu-ray delivers stunning video and reference-quality audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

In 1752, the Collins family sails from Liverpool, England to North America. The son, Barnabas, grows up to be a wealthy playboy in Collinsport, Maine and is the master of Collinwood Manor. He breaks the heart of a witch, Angelique Bouchard, who turns him into a vampire and buries him alive. In 1972, Barnabas is accidentally freed from his coffin and returns to find his once-magnificent manor in ruin. It is occupied by dysfunctional Collins descendants and other residents, all of whom have secrets.

Dark Shadows Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Dark Shadows is true to its name, with fleshy, oppressive shadows adorning every inch of Collinsport and Collinswood Mansion. Not that Warner's 1080p/AVC-encoded video transfer shies away from the challenge. Bruno Delbonnel's palette is dreary and desolate on the whole (almost to the point of being colorless on occasion), with overcast skies, sun-starved skintones, grim grays, dulled whites and smoky blacks. Primaries slice through the drab curtain every now and then -- especially where Angelique is concerned, with her bright crimson lips and cherry red sports car -- but otherwise color is limited to blood, mansion draperies, hippie gatherings and hearthside conversations. It's all intentional, of course, and perfectly suits the film, its gothic sensibilities and photography. Detail isn't razor sharp, nor is it completely subdued. The darker the shot, the less revealing it is. No surprise there. The surprise comes when light, however faint, enters a window pane or fills a room. Suddenly once-slight textures become more refined, delineation is more forgiving, and crush, minor as it is, ceases to be an issue. Edge definition is clean and satisfying throughout, as are closeups, which impress in spite of Delbonnel's diffuse lighting. The encode, meanwhile, doesn't run aground. Artifacting, banding, aliasing and other anomalies don't make any significant appearances, and a bit of elevated noise is the only inconsistency to report. All in all, Dark Shadows looks exactly like it should. It won't drop jaws, but it won't leave fans with anything to complain about either.


Dark Shadows Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Dark Shadows' DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track isn't the kind of lossless monster that goes for the jugular. It stalks its prey, closes in oh so patiently, pounces suddenly and retreats into the night to search for its next victim. And it serves the film wonderfully. Surging seas, squawking gulls, rustling branches, creaking floorboards, groaning doors, cavernous secret passageways, the echo of a grand hall, the chorus of a windy forest, the open skies of Collinsport... the rear speakers grab hold of it all, enveloping the listener in the quaint hustle and bustle of Barnabas' mansion and seaside town. Convincing directional effects make for an active and engaging experience, ghostly pans send spirits shooting from one channel to the next, LFE output is bold when attacking and subtle when simply lending weight, and dynamics are eerie and altogether excellent. Danny Elfman's score and the '70s hits that fill out the film's soundtrack are given full run of Collinswood too, and the resulting soundfield represents a perfect union of classic songs, playful genre music and plenty of properly prioritized horror hijinks. Dialogue doesn't disappoint either, with clear, well-grounded and smartly centered voices, as well as the freedom to venture out beyond the front speakers. Warner's mix is a fully immersive one and there isn't a single scene that underwhelms.
