Day of the Dead Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Day of the Dead is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Scream Factory (an imprint of Shout! Factory) with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. Fans of the film will know that Starz/Anchor Bay released a generally nice accounting of the film on Blu-ray several years ago. This Shout! release is being touted as coming from an "all new film transfer", and there are some subtle but noticeable differences between this and the Anchor Bay release. The aspect ratio here is obviously slightly different, and a minimal amount of information has been lost, which nevertheless may bother some videophiles. The palette here looks quite a bit warmer to me than on the Anchor Bay release, with flesh tones especially ruddy in comparison to the previous release. Fine detail may be marginally improved here, but it's an incremental improvement and one which doesn't appreciably improve the sharpness or clarity of the film (if I were able to, I'd probably give this a 3.75 rating to indicate a bump up from the Anchor Bay release). The opening several minutes of the film, which include the credits, is one long optical and looks quite soft in comparison to even the rest of the film, as do the other opticals (as should be expected). The rather amazing makeup and other special effects look marvelously gruesome in this offering. One thing that frankly surprised me here was the relative lack of grain, especially in the many darker scenes, something that seems to be at odds with the rather aggressively pushed contrast on display here. Make no mistake—there is definitely fine grain here, rolling quite naturally through the image, but it's very fine and tends not to spike at all in the many shrouded sequences scattered throughout the film.


Day of the Dead Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Unlike the Starz/Anchor Bay release, this new Blu-ray sports only the film's original mono mix, presented via DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. While shallow, and struggling a bit with prioritization when things get sonically busy and especially when the John Harrison score comes into play, overall things are very clear and well balanced here. Dialogue and some of the frankly goofy sound effects sound clear and precise, and the track has none of the (slight) editing that plagued the faux surround mix on the Anchor Bay outing. Fidelity is excellent, and of course dynamic range is very wide courtesy of all the grunting, groaning, and tons of gunfire.
