Frankenstein's Army

 (2013)

Frankenstein's Army Blu-ray offers solid video and superb audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Toward the end of World War II, Russian soldiers pushing into eastern Germany stumble across a secret Nazi lab, one that has unearthed and begun experimenting with the journal of one Dr. Victor Frankenstein. The scientists have used the legendary Frankenstein's work to assemble an army of super-soldiers stitched together from the body parts of their fallen comrades -- a desperate Hitler's last ghastly ploy to escape defeat.

For more about Frankenstein's Army and the Frankenstein's Army Blu-ray release, see Frankenstein's Army Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Karel Roden, Joshua Sasse, Robert Gwilym, Alexander Mercury, Luke Newberry, Hon Ping Tang

Frankenstein's Army Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Frankenstein's Army is one of those home video releases where—in a few instances—it's hard to tell what is an intentional part of the image and what may be a shortcoming in the Blu-ray encode. The central conceit, of course, is that this footage was shot at the tail end of WWII on color stock, using a 16mm camera with sync sound. (Forget, for a moment, that color film was rarely used during the war, and that 16mm sync sound wasn't invented until the 1960s.) Because the film was actually shot digitally—with Arri Alexa cameras—grain, frame jitters, light leaks, color fluctuations, and other vintage analog characteristics were liberally applied in post-production to achieve the intended distressed look. Most of this is obvious, but the picture often also seems quite noisy in a way that may suggest a high compression ratio, with thickly spackled noise artifacts visible in darker areas of the image. Because I can't say with any certainty where along the production line this noise was introduced, I'm just going to give the benefit of the doubt and assume it's supposed to be there. Regardless, it's really only noticeable when viewing screenshots or standing close to the screen. From a normal viewing distance, the faux-16mm graininess is reasonably convincing, although the desaturated and sometimes oddly toned color grading is less believable. Appropriately—if 16mm was indeed the intended reference point—sharpness is not the picture's strong suit, but there's certainly enough to high definition clarity here to warrant watching the film on Blu-ray instead of DVD.


Frankenstein's Army Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Not only does Dimitri's 16mm camera have sync sound, it can apparently capture multi-channel audio as well. Dark Sky Films has given us two audio options here, the default lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround mix and an uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0 stereo mix-down. Like the image, the sound design features some post-production distressing to give a vintage feeling—intentional muffling at times, splice pops and crackles, the clicking whir of film running through the camera—but otherwise the audio is quite modern, with a thumping low-end, immersive ambience in just about every scene, directionally accurate effects, and and an assortment of cross-channel movements. It's all very well done, amping up the film's uneasiness with electrical surges, flashing sparks, and other loud industrial noises. Dialogue is easily understood throughout, and the disc includes English SDH and Spanish subtitles—in bright yellow lettering—for those who need or want them.
