Dracula Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Controversy surrounds this BD release, with woes dating back to its laserdisc debut. Intending to match a gothic, classic cinema mood, Badham elected to drain most of the color out of Gilbert Taylor's cinematography in the 1990s, building a vision for "Dracula" that he was originally blocked from achieving. The AVC encoded image (2.35:1 aspect ratio) presentation doesn't restore the original color timing. Instead, the tinkering remains, rendering the extremely dark viewing experience flat and confusing to those seeing the picture for the first time, with only pockets of red remaining are the rest of the palette is dialed down, but never reduced to pure black and white, which would make the most sense. Some filtering is present, smoothing textures and smothering filmic qualities, but detail does manage to breathe on occasion, showing life with sets and certain close-ups, though, to be fair, it's a smoky, softly lit production not entirely built to display sharpness. Blacks show solidification, having trouble with delineation on capes and creatures of the night. Minor scratches and chemical burns are detected.


Dracula Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The 2.0 DTS-HD MA sound mix carries a certain charm, offering emphasis on atmospherics to goose the horror mood, surveying howling wolves and bitter winds. Dialogue exchanges are easy to follow and sustain their intended qualities of seduction and panic, with more monstrous encounters adequately contained and communicative. Scoring is consistent, adding appropriate tone to the track without overwhelming the performances, retaining instrumentation. More violent events add some heft.
