Forbidden World

 (1982)

Forbidden World Blu-ray offers solid video and poor audio in this mediocre Blu-ray release

On the remote planet of Xarbia, a scientific experiment has gone horrifically wrong. An experimental life-form known as Subject 20,” created by an elite group of scientists to prevent a major galactic food crisis, has instead mutated into a man-eating organism. It’s getting bigger, it has the ability to change its genetic structure at will and, worst of all, it’s hungry. Very, very hungry!

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

Starring: Jesse Vint, Dawn Dunlap, June Chadwick, Linden Chiles
Director: Allan Holzman

Forbidden World Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Forbidden World blasts onto Blu-ray with a 1080p transfer that, all things considered, isn't too bad. Some scenes are awash in speckles, scratches, and other forms of print damage, but most of the elements are in decent enough shape. Colors are mostly drab, but acceptable. Fine details don't impress, but the transfer remains suitably sharp but somewhat flat. The 1080p resolution does reveal some of the haphazardly-constructed set pieces; paint is clearly thin and chipped here and there, scratches and dents visible in places, and costumes look rather cheap. Fortunately, the gore effects look great; there's some nasty stuff here, and the Blu-ray captures every last ounce of rotting flesh, gelatinous goo, and sinew very well. A fairly thick layer of grain is retained over the image, but there's also some distracting banding and pixelation in low-light scenes. Blacks vary between stable and overpowering, but flesh tones retain an honest hue. There's not much here to get excited about, but for a low-budget Sci-Fi/Horror title from the early 80s, Forbidden World looks about as good as one should reasonably expect.


Forbidden World Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.0 of 5

Forbidden World arrives on Blu-ray with a paltry and problematic DTS-HD MA 2.0 lossless soundtrack. The picture's budget is the biggest obstacle facing this track; there's virtually nothing that extends beyond the center channel, and what's here often sounds like it was recorded on a Fisher Price tape recorder. Dialogue is plenty harsh, coming across as unbalanced but never lacking to the point that words become unintelligible. Sound effects are loud but absent clarity; for instance, explosions and laser blasts sound jumbled but not wholly indistinct. There's plenty of screaming in the movie, and honestly, it sounds like one scream was recorded and played back every time it was needed. The picture's annoying electronic score, like the sound effects, plays as clunky and unrefined. There's also an audible hiss accompanying parts of the track. Basically, Forbidden World sounds just good enough so that it's possible to make out what's going on, but as for a more engaging, yea even pleasant, experience, forget it.
