Halloween III: Season of the Witch Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Halloween III: Season of the Witch features a wishy-washy debut Blu-ray transfer. The image is defined, particularly early on, but a pasty, flat appearance. It looks too smooth -- faces in particular are practically devoid of detail beyond basic shapes -- and largely unnatural, certainly not filmic. Even rougher surfaces like brick walls outside the hospital come up lacking. The image tightens up a bit once the action shifts to Santa Mira. Grain makes a few appearances, textures seem more naturally complex, and faces find a bit of life. Fortunately, the image remains fairly sharp throughout, though there are some sporadic edge halos that practically make objects glow, such as a cop inside the hospital early in the film or a shot of the Santa Mira church steeple later on. Colors are fairly bland; early darker scenes are noticeably so, but again, as the film progresses, vibrance and accuracy increase a bit. Black levels are solid, and flesh tones never seem to veer too far away from a natural appearance. There are only a few scattered speckles that shouldn't interfere with one's enjoyment of the film. Overall, this isn't a dazzler by any stretch of the imagination, but it's a passable transfer.


Halloween III: Season of the Witch Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Halloween III: Season of the Witch scares up a DTS-HD MA 2.0 lossless soundtrack for its Blu-ray debut. There's little range and not much energy to this one. Listeners will feel indifferent at best, not particularly engaged or enthused, but that doesn't mean a poor track, just one that's not naturally of the all-in, completely-immersive sort. The synth notes and digital elements heard over the opening titles are adequately presented. There's nothing dynamic, big, or memorable about this portion of the track, but the antiquated effect actually seems to benefit from a somewhat less intrusive sound presentation. The notes and beats and sounds are perhaps a tad mushy but are handled well enough, flowing practically from the direct center of the stage with not much in the way of added spacing. Thunder and drenching rain heard minutes later fail to immerse the listener in the moment; the effects are fairly straightforward and puny, but they convey the sound's basic needs well enough. Light natural outdoor ambience hovers around the middle of the stage, perhaps stretching a bit further than most other elements. A car explosion in chapter three sounds dull and lazy. The famous "Silver Shamrock" jingle musters all the fun it can in the track's limited confines. There's a slightly scratchy feel to it, but the console TV speakers-era authenticity is welcome. Dialogue is even and clear, playing nicely from the center. This is a pretty straightforward track. There are no surprises and really no disappointments. This wasn't going to be the next great sound demo disc, so what's here is fine, all things considered.
