Halloween H20: Twenty Years Later

 (1998)

Halloween H20: Twenty Years Later Blu-ray features bad video and poor audio in this disappointing Blu-ray release

After faking her death and changing her name to evade the murderous Michael Myers, Laurie Strode, now a teacher at a Southern California private school, is again targeted by her nemesis. Most of the school goes away on a trip, but her son John stays behind along with his girlfriend and a couple of other kids. John is now the age that Laurie was when Michael first attacked her friends, and she is scared and seemingly over- protective. But her fears are proved right when Michael returns to town, stalking first the teens and then Lauie herself.

Halloween H20: Twenty Years Later Blu-ray, Video Quality

  1.5 of 5

Well, there is indeed a picture, and it is indeed Halloween H20. That's a start, and the end, really, for this major disappointment of a transfer. Echo Bridge's 1080p Blu-ray transfer is a mess on every level. For starters, the disc presents the film in a 1.78:1 aspect ratio rather than the picture's 2.39:1 theatrical aspect ratio. Though a Super 35 film and not necessarily "cropped" to the point of losing information, the transfer fails to present the film in its director-intended theatrical aspect ratio and is enough reason alone to avoid the title on Blu-ray, but the image quality is just this side of atrocious on top of that. For those who thought From Dusk Till Dawn looked bad, Halloween H20 is substantially worse. This is a very dim, very lifeless image that sports dull, uninspired colors and features a fair bit of black crush. Detail is at its absolute best adequate; the opening title sequence doesn't look awful, but the rest of the film does. Quite a bit of blocking, poor color gradations, and banding are ever-present. Facial textures are nonexistent, instead appearing unnaturally smooth and pasty, pointing towards heavy noise reduction. Moderate edge enhancement is also a regular companion. Fortunately, there's not too much in the way of perceptible print damage, but there is certainly the stray scratch and errant speckle that pop in from time to time. Halloween H20 passes for "respectable" once or twice, but on the whole this is a disaster of a Blu-ray transfer, in some way earning a failing score in every general category.


Halloween H20: Twenty Years Later Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.0 of 5

Halloween H20 features a DTS-HD MA 2.0 lossless soundtrack, not the "Dolby Digital" "stere" track advertised on the packaging. It fares just a smidgen better than the video transfer, but that's not saying much. This two-channel track is cramped and crunchy, never really extending beyond the center channel, and when it does so, it's when dialogue unnaturally bleeds off to the sides for no apparent reason. Music is listless; even the famed Halloween main theme fails to play with suitable clarity and robustness. On the plus side of the ledger, as small as it may be, there is a decent push at the low end, and a rumbling old truck engine spurts a little bit of perceptible life and energy into the proceedings. Otherwise, this is a very inconsequential, substandard track. Tinny, mushy, cramped; apply whatever negative adjective that could apply, and it will perfectly define the disappointing Halloween H20 listening experience.
