Death Valley Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Death Valley arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Shout! Factory's Scream Factory label with an imperfect but highly effective and film-like high definition transfer. The image retains a rather moderate grain structure but also features a fair bit of noise, notably in darker corners of the image. Generally, the transfer yields pleasing details; faces, clothes, and the rough Western terrain all come together very well to create a convincing, cinematic appearance. Colors appear accurate along the film's dusty, sun-baked Arizona exteriors. The picture also handles the warm wooden interiors of various Old West locales and more bland modern-day settings both with equal proficiency. Black levels are never very far off, though flesh tones sometimes drift towards a slightly reddish shade. The image is a little flat and a hair soft in places. Additionally, very minor wear and tear is evident at times, but not approaching any detrimental state. All told, and despite a few minor drawbacks, this is very sturdy and enjoyable catalogue image from Scream Factory.


Death Valley Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Death Valley features a rather high quality DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless soundtrack. While it won't be mistaken for a rip-roaring new release sound presentation, Scream Factory's audio presentation doesn't leave much to be desired for an aging, halfway obscure catalogue release. Music plays mostly around the front-center to begin, and big city sound effects don't enjoy precision balance, notably during the scene in which Billy and his father say their goodbyes. As the action shifts to Arizona, the track seems to gain a little steam. Some of the sharper musical cues during high energy chase scenes prove largely effective if not a bit scratchy and unkempt at the very top. Gunshots and other action-oriented effects enjoy a fair presence, playing with suitable energy and sonic accuracy. The surrounds don't chime in extensively and the Arizona ambience is never fully realized, but the track does well to get the basics across with little effort. Rounded into form by largely accurate dialogue, Death Valley's lossless soundtrack pleases, generally, throughout.
