Family Plot

 (1976)

Family Plot Blu-ray features awful video and great audio in this mediocre Blu-ray release

When a wealthy woman unwittingly hires a con man and a phoney psychic to find her missing heir, the results are diabolically funny in Alfred Hitchcock's tongue-in-cheek mystery thriller.

For more about Family Plot and the Family Plot Blu-ray release, see Family Plot Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Starring: Karen Black, Bruce Dern, William Devane, Barbara Harris, Cathleen Nesbitt, Ed Lauter
Director: Alfred Hitchcock

Family Plot Blu-ray, Video Quality

  0.5 of 5

Family Plot's god-awful 1080p/AVC-encoded presentation has to be seen to be believed, it's that incredibly bad. It's more difficult, in fact, to find something positive to say about the transfer than to simply point to everything, one scene at a time, and ask questions along the lines of "what happened? What is that? Is this a DVD? A shoddy YouTube upload? What am I looking at? What did Universal use to remaster the film?" Colors are all over the place, contrast is erratic, detail is soupy and indistinct on the whole, edges are framed by severe halos, egregious noise reduction wipes away the vast majority of fine textures, debilitating crush lurks around every dark corner, and just about every anomaly you could name pops up and pops up more than once. It's as if the studio repurposed a first-generation DVD master, and it's in shockingly poor condition. The unequivocal low point of the Alfred Hitchcock Masterpiece Collection, Family Plot is dead on arrival.


Family Plot Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Fortunately, Family Plot's two-channel DTS-HD Master Audio Mono mix doesn't suffer the same fate. Dialogue is intelligible and neatly prioritized, effects are crisp and clear, John Williams' score is unexpectedly full and lively (especially considering its born of a front-only presentation), and there aren't any major mishaps to speak of. Universal's audio tracks are the highlight of the Masterpiece Collection, just as Family Plot's lossless mix is the highlight of its Blu-ray release.
