Day of the Dead

 (1985)

Day of the Dead Blu-ray offers solid video and mediocre audio in this mediocre Blu-ray release

A small group of scientists and soldiers have taken refuge in an underground missile silo where they struggle to control the flesh-eating horror that walks the earth above. But will the final battle for the future of the human race be fought among the living or have they forever unleashed the hunger of the dead?

Day of the Dead Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Starz presents Day of the Dead in 1080p with its original 1.85:1 aspect ratio. Overall I was pleased with the transfer. There are some speckles (some stationary for several seconds) over the opening credits and the overall image is a little soft. After the first few minutes of the movie, the image cleaned up quite a bit. I noted crushed blacks, especially near the end of the film when the zombies infiltrate the bunker, and I noticed what appeared to be some edge enhancement throughout. This is a very two-dimensional image. Overall, however, this is a decent transfer. What color there is is vibrant and natural, but it won't pop of the screen. Gore fans will salivate over the detail visible in the rotting flesh and the blood and organs that spill out all over the place in several scenes. It's an upgrade from previous generation DVDs to be sure, but don't expect to be wowed by this transfer.


Day of the Dead Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

The audio here is pretty bland. Again, like Dawn of the Dead, there is a DTS logo on the disc's artwork but there is no actual DTS track to be found once you pop in the disc. What we do get is the standard from Starz: Dolby Digital 5.1, PCM uncompressed 5.1, and the original Monaural track. The multichannel tracks feature little directionality. There is a decent amount of bass present in the soundtrack, and it sounds good, but the music is loud and sometimes drowns out sound effects and dialogue. When not being covered by music, dialogue is crisp and natural. Sound effects fare well here, and the groans of zombies in the distance come into your room with great effect. However, even with advanced equipment that can decode the PCM track, for this movie I feel the original mono track is the way to go. Honestly, there isn't much lost by playing it over the multichannel options, so why not opt for the filmmaker's original intent?
