Dressed to Kill Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

You never know what you're going to get, picture quality-wise, when it comes to catalog titles from the late '70s and early '80s, so I'm happy to report that Dressed to Kill comes dressed in a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that's consistently impressive. First of all, the print is in excellent shape— you'll notice very few white specks, and no scratches, hairs, or stains whatsoever—and the film's 35mm grain structure has been kept intact, showing no evidence of overzealous digital noise reduction. (Grain can get a bit heavy during some scenes, but it's never abrasive or harsh.) Edge enhancement isn't a concern either. This isn't the sharpest film you'll ever see from the era, but clarity is greatly improved from prior standard definition releases, and you'll spot fine detail in all the areas where you normally look for it—facial features, clothing textures, etc. Color is nicely reproduced too, with balanced skin tones, rich neutrals, and occasional splashes of vividness, like the bright Crayola-red blood. Black levels sometimes encroach on shadow detail, but rarely oppressively so, and contrast seems to be exactly where it should be. Aside from some slight splotchiness in certain color gradients in the background, I didn't notice any major compression artifacts. Really, I have no complaints.


Dressed to Kill Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

I would've settled for a lossless version of the film's original mono mix—I'm usually wary anytime a studio tinkers with mono audio sources in an attempt to reconfigure them for multi-channel output—but MGM has actually delivered a re-engineered DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track that surprisingly effective. The rear channels are called upon often to add immersion; you'll hear water pounding and dripping in the shower, New York City traffic sounds, wind and rain during a heavy storm, the screech and groan of subway cars clanking along at full speed, and numerous other ambient effects. There are even some believable pans and crosses. One of my favorite audio moments is when Peter is listening in on a cop's conversation with Dr. Elliot using a bug and an earpiece; the voices—heard through the wall and carried into a tiny earbud—sounds appropriately tinny out of the front speakers, but we also hear full ambient police office noise all around us. It works really well. Pino Donaggio's score sound great too, with rich orchestral sounds that have crisp highs and bass-heavy, clear-timbered lows. Dialogue throughout is clear and easy to understand. The disc comes with a French Dolby Digital mono dub, as well as optional English SDH, French, and Spanish subtitles.
