Horror Express Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.0 of 5

Horror Express falls in the public domain, so over the years it's been treated—like Night of the Living Dead—to numerous shoddy VHS and DVD editions. There was a semi-decent DVD release of the movie by Image Entertainment several years ago, but this Blu-ray disc by Severin is now the definitive home video version of the film, for better or worse. The picture here is watchable, and probably the best the film has ever looked on video, but the presentation is seriously flawed. Severin has supposedly gone back to the film's original 35mm negatives for an all-new remaster, resulting in a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that's one step forwards and two steps back. The source materials aren't perfect, and you'll notice a range of minor print damage—specks and small scratches throughout, some slight color fluctuations and occasional brightness flickering—but the film looks decent considering its age and budget. In terms of clarity, the transfer is more than adequately defined; remastering the movie in high definition has yielded never-before-seen details in facial texture, costuming, and monster make-up. Color is satisfyingly dense and balanced nicely too—from skin tones to the blue Cassock uniforms to the glowing red eyes—and black levels are as deep as they need to be while mostly preserving shadow detail. But it all goes wrong in the last stage of the transfer—the encode itself. Where this disc falters—and falters hard—is in the unholy amount of compression visible here, from buzzing noise to full-on macroblocking. If you've got a smaller screen you might not notice it as much, but on anything larger than a 40" you'll spot errant video errors galore. It's definitely distracting, and it gives the picture a strange digital glitchiness. It's a shame the film's presentation was crippled in the final step.


Horror Express Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

The disc includes the Spanish and English versions of the film, but unfortunately both are lossy, the former in Dolby Digital Stereo and the latter in Dolby Digital Mono. The English mix is the default, and it's the one you'll probably want to stick with, since it features the voices of Cushing and Lee. The tracks are listenable, and about what you'd expect for a low-budget horror movie from the early 1970s, but they could definitely sound better with a little love, attention, and digital remastering. John Cacavas' score is truly memorable—it has a whistled theme that'll probably be whistling yourself for days—but the high-end here is a bit brash, and even peaks and crackles occasionally. You'll also hear this in certain sound effects, like wind. The dubbed voices are synced quite well, but you will notice that some of the dialogue has a somewhat muffled, hollow quality. This is almost certainly due to the original recording techniques, and it never gets to the point of unintelligibility, but it is worth noting. You might also hear a quiet hiss from time to time in the background if you listen closely. There are no subtitle options available.
