Death Ship Blu-ray delivers great video and mediocre audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Death Ship Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The AVC encoded image (1.78:1 aspect ratio) presentation is perhaps the best "Death Ship" is ever going to look on home video, with the forgotten picture handed a pleasing upgrade to Blu-ray with minimal hiccups. There's a fair amount of debris and scratches to contend with, but nothing that causes concern. Fine detail is acceptable for neglected ship interiors, horror make-up, and facial reactions, capturing a sense of panic and sweat, while costuming reveals fuzzy textures. Colors are adequate, remaining balanced and purposeful throughout, though early scenes with Ashland and Marshall on the cruise ship appear slightly unnatural, with hot skintones. German ship encounters offers darker hues in mud and steel, with blood red a particular standout, making a critical shower sequence pop with horror. Shadow detail tends to solidify in low-lit environments, but remains largely controlled and readable.


Death Ship Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

The 2.0 DTS-HD MA sound mix works uphill to retain its original sense of tension. The front stage is a little out of whack, with the center channel showing minimal presence, often burying the dialogue when scoring and soundtrack selection surge in power, requiring a boost of volume to hear voices. Further volume riding is necessary for sound effects, which are intended to unnerve but remain persistently shrill, hurting ears during a few shock sequences. It's an uneven track that appears to be doing the best it can with iffy source elements, leaving the listening experience aggressive, tinny, and limited in scope.
