Fascination Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

For a long time, Jean Rollin's films were only available in the U.S. by way of duped VHS tapes and then decent, but far from spectacular DVDs, so to see them in high definition is something of a revelation. The Blu-ray presentation is fairly consistent across all five films being released in this first batch of titles, so I'm basically reiterating what I've written in the previous reviews. Though the visual style is much in keeping with the earlier films--intentionally drab overall but punctuated by vivid color--Fascination is the most polished-looking of the five titles. Cinematographer Georgie Fromentin had only one previous credit, a film called Hard Penetration--but he actually does some decent lensing here, helping Rollin to create some of his most memorable images. On Blu-ray, the color has been reproduced wonderfully and the image is dense, with deep blacks--sometimes they crush a bit, but this is probably unavoidable--and good contrast. As with the other titles, Kino's 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer is true-to-source, with no noise reduction, edge enhancement, or other unnecessary digital manipulations. That said, the print is also presented as-is, which means you'll sometimes notice white and black specks, occasional flickers, and some small scratches, hairs, and debris. Fascination is never exceptionally sharp, but the fine, high-definition detail apparent in the transfer makes this an instant improvement over the prior DVDs. Finally, there are no real compression issues to worry about. It bears repeating: If you've been following Kino's Blu-ray track record, you know exactly what to expect from the Cinema of Jean Rollins series--the best possible prints, presented with minimal digital intervention.


Fascination Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Nude Vampire, Shiver of the Vampires, and The Iron Rose each included both the original French audio and an English dub, but for Fascination Kino has only supplied the French language mix, presented in uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0 mono. As with the picture quality, the audio sometimes exhibits evidence of the film's low- budget origins--dynamic tinniness, light hisses, audible pops, and crackles--but nothing you wouldn't expect and nothing outright distracting. What's important is that the dialogue, while never perfectly clean--there's some slight muffling or peaking at times--is at least always understandable and balanced in the mix. I was also somewhat surprised by the sound design here, which is better and more deliberate than in some of the early Rollin films. The creepy score, by Philippe d'Aram, sets a great mood too. The disc includes optional English subtitles.
