Frankenstein Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Frankenstein's restoration may not be as subjectively striking as Dracula's, but it's no less commendable and impressive. Everything from contrast inconsistencies to grain spikes, print flicker and fluctuations, scratches and specks (which rarely make an appearance), and other inherited issues have been managed with care, and without undermining the detail of the original photography, thwarting the filmmakers' intentions, or robbing the image of its filmic qualities. There isn't any evidence of quick-fix manipulation or debilitating noise reduction, and the relative softness and darkness of Arthur Edeson's photography are the only things that might give the untrained eye pause, particularly if direct comparisons are being made to other films in the Essentials Collection. Black levels are deep and ominous (even if gray tones are a tad heavy on occasion), edges are clean and satisfying (just not razor sharp), and textures, where apparent, have been preserved. The encode itself is proficient as well, without any serious macroblocking, banding, smearing or errant oddities that might inspire videophiles to arm themselves with torches and pitchforks.


Frankenstein Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Frankenstein lumbers out of the lab with a somewhat problematic two-channel DTS-HD Master Audio Mono mix; one that isn't as rewarding or revelatory as the lossless track afforded Dracula. Whether all of the difficulties trace back to lesser audio elements is unclear. What is clear is the noise floor and air hiss that haunt much of the film, the brash (but bearable) distortion that curses more chaotic sequences, and the at-times muffled or tinny voices of the actors. Admittedly, dialogue is clear and intelligible on the whole, and the film isn't weakened by any of the track's shortcomings. Strides have been made in drawing out subtleties once thought lost, and the soundscape is often clean and neatly prioritized. Not enough to warrant high praise or, given the liklihood that this is the best Frankenstein can sound with the audio elements available, too much excitement. But enough to make Universal's DTS-HD MA track more than serviceable. Considering the age of the film, I'd even go so far as to call it a valiant effort.
