Hell's House Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

At the beginning of the film, you'll read this disclaimer:

"This archival edition of Hell's House was mastered in HD from an original 35mm print from Bette Davis' personal collection, donated to the Library of Congress. The first reel is considerably worn, suffering nitrate decomposition and some missing frames. The film is otherwise intact."

And that about sums it up. The film's first few minutes suffer from strong print damage, with deterioration along the edges of the frame—resulting in a sort of ghostly white, flickering vignetting—and a heavy flurry of white specks, overlayed with thick vertical and horizontal scratches. Additionally, there are a few stutters and moments of choppiness due to the dropped frames, though these are fleeting. (There are no substantial chunks missing.) After the first reel, the level of damage definitely lightens, but scratches and white flecks are still present to some degree throughout, along with other age- related issues, like brightness fluctuations and small judders. Even at its worst, in those opening scenes, the damage is not in the least distracting, especially if you're accustomed to watching films from this era. As with most Kino Classics releases, emphasis is placed on the true-to-source fidelity of the picture. While the image hasn't undergone a frame-by-frame digital restoration, neither has it been artificially smoothed over with noise reduction or other filtering methods. The film looks entirely natural, with a visible patina of grain and no signs of edge enhancement, compression artifacts, etc. Clarity is often very impressive—you'll notice the fine detail in the boys' detention center uniforms, Bette Davis' individually visible eyelashes, etc.—and the black and white contrast curve is balanced, with no overly crushed shadows or blown out highlights. A very watchable picture.


Hell's House Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Like the picture, the film's uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0 mono track is also subject to some inevitable age damage, but never to a distracting extent. A light hiss runs through much of the movie, and you'll hear semi-frequent splice pops and crackles—along with a few outright dropouts from missing frames— but these are easy enough to ignore. What's most important is that the dialogue is relatively clear and easy to understand, with no major muffling or peaking. Likewise, the film's orchestral score sounds as good as can be expected for a film from this era, dynamically limited but bright and mostly clean. My only quibble here is that Kino—per custom—has once again neglected to include any subtitle options.
