High Spirits Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

High Spirits is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Scream Factory, an imprint of Shout! Factory, with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.84:1. Aside from some expected age related wear and tear, this is a nice looking transfer that is perhaps incrementally more impressive than its double feature sibling Vampire's Kiss (I'd be prone to give this a 3.75 score if I were able to). Colors are nicely saturated and accurate looking, and contrast and black levels are both consistent. The film has a lot of optical effects, and those bring an expected uptick in grain and (at times at least) dirt. There are no issues with image instability and the overall look of this presentation is nicely organic. There is one very peculiar glitch at around 30:16, when D'Angelo and Guttenberg are battling it out in a castle hall. All of a sudden in the middle of a D'Angelo line of dialogue, there's a digital hiccup, with a peculiar flash of white lines in the black bar beneath the image frame. Just the very tip of D'Angelo's line is compromised, and there's a brief stutter of the image itself.


High Spirits Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

High Spirits' lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track boasts excellent fidelity, though there are occasional mix anomalies that may be inherent to the source stems. The opening theme music, for example, seems buried underneath the rain effect that simultaneously opens the film. These moments are the exception to the rule, however, and generally both dialogue and score are presented very cleanly and clearly on this problem free track.
