Diary of the Dead

 (2007)

Diary of the Dead Blu-ray delivers great video and decent audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Jason Creed and a small crew of college filmmakers are in the Pennsylvania woods making a no-budget horror film when they hear the terrifying news that the dead have started returning to life. Led by Jason's girlfriend, Debra, the frightened young filmmakers set off in a friend's old Winnebago to try to get back to the only safety and security they know: their homes. But there is no escape from the crisis, nor any real home for them anymore. Everything they depend upon, all that they hold dear, is fractured as the plague of the living dead begins to spread. Jason documents the true-life horrors in a tense, first-person style that heightens the reality of each encounter. Even as his friends die, even as they are attacked by ravenous walking corpses at every stop along the way, Jason keeps filming, an obsessive, unflinching eye in the midst of chaos. The government first denies, then promises to quell the crisis, but can’t. Technology fails. Communication with the rest of the world becomes impossible. Jason and what remains of his crew end up on their own, a handful of lucky survivors, reliant on no one but themselves to stay alive. They take final refuge in a fortress of a mansion, but their sanctuary turns out to be a trap from which there is no escape. Throughout it all, the cameras keep rolling, recording every detail for future generations--if any survive.

Diary of the Dead Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Diary of the Dead comes to Blu-ray with a 1080p transfer framed in a 1.78:1 window. As explained at the beginning of the film, the majority of footage was captured with a pair of high definition video cameras, and therefore the strength of this transfer is only as good as the equipment allows. Generally, the results are fine when taking into account the nature of the picture. Still, the video is occasionally all over the map, beginning with a hard green tint that is reminiscent of The Matrix and going on to feature a rather standard-looking HD video appearance while intercut with cell phone footage and stock imagery that looks like it was shot off a television, featuring scan lines and all. The film doesn't present excessive noise, save for some of the darker shots where it becomes very noticeable. These darker shots often reveal fairly nice and deep blacks that only occasionally stray towards a shade of gray. The video is dim in general, with mostly dull colors and average levels of detail. There is really little to the experience; a few brightly lit daytime scenes fare the best, as expected, with the highest levels of clarity and texture, but generally, this is a drab-looking film, and the Blu-ray captures the intended look nicely.


Diary of the Dead Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Weinstein delivers Diary of the Dead to Blu-ray with a generally lackluster Dolby TrueHD 5.1 soundtrack. In this case, the sound design works, for it never feels too powerful compared to the (intended) shoddy visuals seen throughout the movie. Therefore, it never allows for a video/audio disconnect, providing a clear soundtrack that doesn't completely overshadow the film's visual style. Dialogue is presented with a slightly less-than-adequate volume at reference level, but it's generally clear and precise and delivered well enough via the center channel. Sound effects are minimal but pan across the soundstage when called upon to do so; a speeding car moves from the center channel and straight through to the right both efficiently and effortlessly. Still, most effects, particularly gunshots, offer little in the way of a major sonic impact. The track is generally front-heavy and sufficient, and it's certainly not an eardrum-busting experience.
