Halloween Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Brighter, clearer, more detailed and with vastly improved resolution over previous NTSC versions, Halloween on Blu-ray looks like it could have been filmed last year, rather than 30 years ago. The depth is startlingly lifelike, aside from lens issues that cause foreground blurriness in a few scenes. These problems are in the original film and not related to the digitization process that yielded 1080p content. Overall, the grain and blur are not intrusive and the average viewer will not notice it. Contrast, black level, color saturation and skin tones are spot on.

I especially enjoyed the daytime scenes in the suburban Illinois neighborhood as Strode walks to and from school. With quiet streets, autumn trees, green lawns and houses of various colors, the picture is alive with vibrant detail and lush color. And that just brings the horror of the film home even harder.



Halloween Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Blu-ray disc's one weak spot is its audio performance. Back in 1978, audio engineering seemed to be at a low point. Here, the voices, sound effects and music sound boxy, slightly muffled and tonally odd. The voices fare best while the music sounds absolutely terrible, weak and distorted. The PCM content helps some, but Starz may not have had all that much to work with in the original master recording. A remaster can only be as good as the original recording. Still, the voices had decent presence and the screaming and music had enough impact to stand one's hair on end.

Audio can elicit a more primal emotional response than video, and Carpenter uses it to great effect here. Take, for example, the scene where Loomis is casing the inside of the old Myers residence and a large object comes through the window, creating a loud sound. It is difficult to see what happened, but the audio alone creates the drama. Compare that to the scene shortly thereafter, when Loomis, standing outside and waiting to see if Myers will return, is suddenly grabbed on the shoulder by the sheriff. With no loud noise, the scene doesn't have as much impact. Often, Carpenter uses the music to punctuate the action and provide the emotional cues to prepare us or surprise us.
