Dracula: Prince of Darkness Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Brought to Blu-ray after an advertised restoration, the AVC encoded image (2.36:1 aspect ratio) does showcase a distinct reawakening for the decades-old picture. Colors are the most predominant visual element, delivering bright, deep hues that emerge from intricate lighting and considerable bloodshed, which flows with a pleasing redness -- a ghoulish mood that extends to Dracula's demonic eyes. Costuming also looks true, while skintones register naturally. There is noticeable filtering employed to control the heavy presence of grain, making the image look a tad artificial. Thankfully, fine detail isn't completely diluted, with a textured look at fabrics and make-up, allowing viewers to study Lee's vampiric transformation and gore zone visits. Blacks are largely consistent, enduring a few instances of crush that solidify evening activity.


Dracula: Prince of Darkness Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Dolby Digital 2.0 sound mix carries itself with a decent amount of stability, creating the intended mood of suspense without distortion. Scoring takes the lead here, offering adequate instrumentation and sharp swells of intensity, providing a welcome backdrop for the visual elements while taking charge of the moment when called on to do so. Dialogue is crisp and clean, and while verbal interactions aren't a priority for the production, expositional moments engage as intended, with dramatic purpose defined. Castle and exterior atmospherics aren't powerful, but there's enough energy and definition to articulate disparate environments.
