Frankenhooker Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.78:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Frank Henenlotter's Frankenhooker arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Synapse Films.

The high-definition transfer Synapse Films have used for their Blu-ray release of Frankenhooker has similar characteristics to the one Arrow Films used for their Blu-ray release in the UK. Detail is again very pleasing, contrast levels stable, and clarity good. There are no traces of severe denoising or post production sharpening either. Unsurprisingly, there is a layer of light grain that is very easy to spot throughout the entire film. The only marginal difference between the Synapse Films and Arrow Films releases is in the area of color reproduction. Generally speaking, on the Synapse Films release some of the reds and blues appear slightly darker, while on the release they tend to be brighter (compare screenshot #11 to screenshot #3 from the Arrow Films release). The difference, however, is so small that it is practically irrelevant. To sum it all up, this is a strong and very competent Blu-ray release that should please fans of Frank Henenlotter's cult film. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location).


Frankenhooker Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are two 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, Synapse Films have not provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

I tested a couple of scenes with the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track to see what type of enhancements it offers (the Arrow Films release has only the original 2.0 track). In my opinion, the most credible ones are during the party sequence (with the explosion), the storm, and then the bar sequence and portions of the finale. There is some extra movement and small dynamic nuances in each of these sequences. Anyone expecting a dramatic audio expansion and impressive surround activity, however, will surely be underwhelmed. I personally would recommend opting for the original 2.0 track - it serves the film well.
