Dementia 13 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

Anyone who has ever seen any of the many PD releases of Dementia 13 over the years knows already that this was far from a sharp looking film to begin with, and that same fuzzy, inchoate softness is not helped much if at all with this new high definition upgrade, via an AVC encode in 1080p and 1.78:1. This release, sourced from a 35mm print, has been significantly cleaned of scratches and other damage, but there's also been an attendant noise reduction which will no doubt drive grain lovers slightly insane. The worst thing about this release, which truthfully has hobbled every print and previous home video release of Dementia 13 I've personally seen, is the overblown contrast and appallingly soft look in midrange and short range shots. Midrange shots which are ostensibly of faces devolve into white blobs, with no facial features apparent at all. Even close-ups lack sharp, differentiated contrast, and whites frequently bloom badly. A couple of passing scenes offer reasonably rich blacks, which ups the contrast quotient considerably. There's also intermittent telecine wobble throughout the film, though it's never too troubling. This is certainly better looking than a lot of previous home video releases, at least if you don't mind DNR, but anyone looking for a topflight restoration will probably be disappointed with the results here.


Dementia 13 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

Was Dementia 13 actually not filmed in Ireland, but at Italy's vaunted Cinecittà Studios? I ask this fanciful question because the film seems to have been completely, or at least mostly, post-dubbed, as was the practice in Italian film for decades. This new Blu-ray offers two standard Dolby tracks, one in 5.1 and the other 2.0, which do nothing to improve the film's boxy sounding soundtrack. Occasional synchronization issues crop up from time to time, and while there's no egregious damage per se, this is one of the narrowest sounding tracks, with unappealing (and really pretty nonexistent) highs and lows, and a really processed sounding middle frequency range. Strangely, Ronald Stein's score comes off best in this enterprise, managing to escape the boxiness so apparent in the dialogue. In terms of surround activity on the repurposed 5.1 track, it's intermittent, to say the least, and sounds as artificial as the entire track. It would have been better to have been given a lossless version of the original soundtrack than a faux surround mix which never really provides much immersion anyway.
