Gate of Hell

 (1953)

Gate of Hell Blu-ray delivers stunningly beautiful video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

During feudal unrest in the 12th century, samurai warrior Moritoh manages to thwart a palace rebellion and save the life of the empress by using Lady Kesa as a decoy. When Moritoh is offered anything he should desire as reward, he requests Kesa's hand in marriage. Informed that she is already married to a fellow samurai, he refuses to withdraw his request, setting in motion a tragic chain of events.

Gate of Hell Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.37:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Teinosuke Kinugasa's Gate of Hell arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Eureka Entertainment.

Digitally restored in 2011 by The National Film Center of the National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo and Kadokawa Shoten Co., LTD. in cooperation with NHK, Gate of Hell looks simply beautiful on Blu-ray. Throughout the entire film close-ups boast fantastic depth (see screencaptures #1 and #13), while clarity is consistently pleasing. Contrast levels are also stable. Colors are rich and well saturated, looking healthy and stable. Furthermore, there are no traces of excessive degraining corrections. There are absolutely no traces of post-production sharpening either. Unsurprisingly, the film boasts a wonderful organic look. Finally, there are no serious stability issues. Also, there are no large damage marks, cuts, stains, or warps to report in this review. To sum it all up, this is indeed a very impressive restoration, arguably one of the very best done for an Asian film in Eureka Entertainment's catalog. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Gate of Hell Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: Japanese LPCM 2.0. For the record, Eureka Entertainment have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

The dialog is stable and easy to follow. Occasionally there is some light background hiss that sneaks in, primarily where the music is prominent, but it is never distracting. Rather predictably for a film from the early '50s, dynamic movement is quite limited (even during the horse race). There are no serious distortions or audio dropouts.
