Evil Dead II: Dead by Dawn Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Sam Raimi's Evil Dead II arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of StudioCanal.

I don't have any earlier DVD or Blu-ray releases of this film in my library and therefore cannot offer any specific comments on the type of upgrade it represents. The high-definition transfer used for this release, however, is quite healthy, and I think that most people familiar with the film's various image limitations will be pleased with it.
Detail and especially clarity fluctuate quite a lot. These fluctuations, however, have a lot to do with the manner in which the film was shot - light is consistently restricted and camera movement is often erratic. Many close-ups, however, still boast pleasing depth (see the facial hair in screencapture #3). Some of the larger panoramic shots also look surprisingly good (see screencapture #5), despite the fact that shadow definition is occasionally somewhat problematic. There are traces of careful noise corrections, but some are likely to have been introduced during the post-production process to accomplish a more balanced look. Depth is certainly not compromised. Grain, at times mixed with light noise, is also easy to spot. Color reproduction is satisfying, but I feel that this is an area where additional corrections almost certainly have been performed to maintain some balance as well. Finally, there are no serious stability issues to report in this review. Large debris, cuts, damage marks, and scratches have also been removed as best as possible. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Evil Dead II: Dead by Dawn Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are two standard audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. For the record, StudioCanal have not provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

I prefer the DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track over the 5.1 track. I am aware that the film has appeared on DVD and Blu-ray with all sorts of different 5.1 tracks, but I believe that the 2.0 track is far more appropriate as it is far better balanced. On the 5.1 track there are sudden spikes in dynamic activity that seem either seriously exaggerated or simply misplaced. On the 2.0 track the sound does not feel as forced or uneven. Generally speaking, the dialog is clean and easy to follow on both tracks. My advice to you is to experiment with both, but my first choice is definitely the 2.0 track.
