Deathtrap

 (1982)

Deathtrap Blu-ray delivers great video and decent audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

If you were a famed mystery playwright with a devastating string of recent flops, what would you do for a can't-miss thriller script? Beg for it? Pay for it? Or would you kill for it? You would if you were Sidney Bruhl, the leading character in Ira Levin's dazzlingly funny, deliciously scary Broadway-smash-turned-movie-hit DEATHTRAP. Michael Caine stars as Bruhl and Christopher Reeve plays Bruhl's one-time student who's written a play so flawless "even a gifted director couldn't ruin it"... and who requests Bruhl's production help. And Dyan Cannon is Bruhl's loving wife, who doesn't want the student helped to an early grave. Sidney Lumet directs DEATHTRAP's hairpin twists with such drop-dead wit and delightful dread that you'll stop laughing only long enough to gasp in surprise.

For more about Deathtrap and the Deathtrap Blu-ray release, see Deathtrap Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Michael Caine, Christopher Reeve, Dyan Cannon, Irene Worth, Henry Jones

Deathtrap Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

According to published comments attributed to Warner's George Feltenstein, this 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray release of Deathtrap is based on a new high-definition transfer. It certainly looks it. All of the meticulous detail in Sidney Bruhl's elaborately precious country home—from the dainty living room decor, to the museum-like study, to the bedroom beneath the weighty mechanisms of an endlessly turning old windmill (gee, that's not unsettling or anything!)—can be fully appreciated, along with every tiny shift in expression and sideward glance, as Lumet and cinematographer Andrzej Bartkowiak push in close to observe the faces of Sidney, Myra and Clifford. During the opening sequence in the city, colors are often cool, even downright chilly. They warm considerably when Sidney reaches the country—all those brown woods and earth tones—but the warmth is an illusion. Myra has a greenhouse with ultraviolet grow lights, whose sickly purple glow seems to expand and contract with the evil intentions of certain players onscreen (the "pain" that Helga Ten Dorp feels next door). That light is a classic stage effect discreetly transferred to the movie screen.

The image is so clean that, for a film of this vintage, one suspects a touch of grain removal. I stress the word "suspects", because I have no way of knowing. The digital software used by such top flight post houses as MPI, which is the on-site facility that handles the digital intermediates for Warner's major productions, is now so sophisticated that visible grain can be reduced without sacrificing detail. Certainly none of the telltale signs associated with so-called "DNR" are visible on Deathtrap. What we get is a smooth, virtually noiseless, film-like image from a source that has been well-preserved. Black levels are solid, and there is no indication of compression or other mastering errors. If this is the level of quality we can expect from future WAC releases on Blu-ray, collectors will be happy indeed.


Deathtrap Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Deathtrap arrives with a lossless DTS-HD MA 2.0 track that presents the film's original mono soundtrack in the front left and right channels. It's a serviceable track with good fidelity and surprisingly broad dynamic range, especially in the thunderously stormy passages that occur near the end of both "acts". Dialogue is always clear, although the looping is occasionally obvious, and the harpsichord-dominated score by Johnny Mandel (M.A.S.H., The Verdict) achieves the appropriately arch and ironic effect.
