Harry and the Hendersons

 (1987)

Harry and the Hendersons Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

While vacationing in the Pacific Northwest, the Henderson clan accidentally run over a strange animal with their car, and when they get out to see what it is, they find the seemingly dead body of a hairy Bigfoot-type monster. Believing that the creature is a grizzly bear, the Hendersons take it home, planning to stuff the beast and put it on display in their living room. Predictably, the hirsute monster revives and is adopted by the family as a pet.

For more about Harry and the Hendersons and the Harry and the Hendersons Blu-ray release, see Harry and the Hendersons Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Harry and the Hendersons Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Harry and the Hendersons features a rather impressive 1080p/AVC-encoded video presentation that doesn't succumb to the issues that plague so many second and third-tier Universal catalog titles. Noise reduction has been employed to a limited degree, but its judicious use doesn't lead to any significant smearing or detail loss. Slight edge halos are also apparent at times, but they too are kept to a minimum. Otherwise, all is as it should be. Edge definition is crisp, fine textures are well-resolved, grain is intact and delineation is excellent. (There is a bit of softness to be found, but, from what I can tell, it's almost entirely optical.) Colors and skintones are nicely saturated too (barring a few problematic shots), and contrast is dialed in capably and consistently, with satisfying blacks and pleasing primaries. I don't have any real complaints, although a more thorough remastering would most likely produce more refined, perfectly faithful results. That said, I suspect any differences would be minor, making this one easy to recommend.


Harry and the Hendersons Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Universal's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track is quite good as well, even though it's a tad front-heavy as remixes of '80s family comedies tend to be. Dialogue is clean, clear and competently prioritized, with very little in the way of tininess, wayward voices or unsupported lines. LFE output is hearty and healthy, even boasting a particular bit of heft when it comes to Harry's roars, and rear speaker activity is reasonably engaging. The soundfield isn't all that immersive per se -- directionality is merely decent, and erratic at that -- but this is 1987 we're talking about here, and not a big budget 1987 action extravaganza. Could Harry and the Hendersons sound much better? It's doubtful. As catalog lossless tracks go, there isn't much disappointment to endure, if any.
