Dead Alive

 (1992)

Dead Alive Blu-ray offers decent video and solid audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Lionel, an innocent young man, is forced to care for domineering mother and finds the task a whole lot more demanding after she's bitten by the cursed Sumatran rat monkey. Passing the point of death, Lionel's mother sucks friends and family into her gruesome existence among the living dead and Lionel is sent spiraling into a ghoulish nightmare.

Dead Alive Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Dead Alive oozes onto Blu-ray with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. This was obviously about as far from the mega-budgets of Lord of the Rings as might be possible, and it shows. The print here is very grainy, soft and offers fairly substandard color a lot of the time, with an overall milky quality that deprives the image of suitably strong contrast. Some of the close-ups reveal some excellent fine detail, but it's usually within the context of a wider, all inclusive softness that never really lets up for the bulk of the film. The worst element here is mosquito noise, which dots several sequences, especially the fantastic "ass kicking" segment in the graveyard at night. I never owned the DVD release of Dead Alive, and so can't offer an authoritative opinion about how this Blu-ray compares to that release, but my hunch is there is a decent if not overwhelming uptick in saturation (no pun intended, considering this film's proclivities) but a perhaps less than overwhelming uptick in sharpness and clarity.


Dead Alive Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

No towering Howard Shore score on this Blu-ray, which features audio in a decent lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 mix. Instead there's a kind of cheesy (one assumes intentionally so) piano and synth score by Peter Dasent, who was Jackson's frequent collaborator in his early films. Otherwise the film consists of lots of gooey sound effects mixed in with various other more aggressive sounds (like that lawnmower mentioned above) that add up to a fairly raucous sonic experience, despite the obvious narrowness of the track. Fidelity is excellent here, though the film basically has only two approaches, fairly quiet and then completely boisterously over the top loudness. Effects and dialogue are decently prioritized, but this film could have really popped (again, no pun intended, considering what goes on in several sequences) with a surround repurposing.
