House

 (1977)

House Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

A schoolgirl travels with six classmates to her ailing aunt’s creaky country home and comes face-to-face with evil spirits, a demonic house cat, a bloodthirsty piano, and other ghoulish visions, all realized by Obayashi via a series of mattes, animation, and collage effects.

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

Director: Nobuhiko Ohbayashi

House Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.33:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Nobuhiko Obayashi's House arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"This new high-definition digital transfer was created on a Spirit Datacine from a 35mm low-contrast print struck from the original camera negative. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, jitter, and flicker were manually removed using MTI's DRS system and Pixel Farm's PFClean system, while Digital Vision's DVNR system was used for small dirt, grain, and noise reduction.

Telecine supervisor: Lee Kline.
Telecine colorist: Joe Gawler/Technicolor, New York."

This is a strong high-definition transfer. Fine object detail is very, clarity pleasing, and contrast levels consistent throughout the entire film. The color-scheme is beautiful; wonderful soft reds, blues, greens, yellows, browns, and blacks give House a terrific psychedelic look. Edge enhancement is not a serious issue of concern; neither is macroblocking. There are no traces of heavy noise reduction either; the film's grain structure is very much intact. There are no serious stability issues to report in this review either. When blown through a digital projector, the image conveys pleasing depth and natural tightness. Lastly, I did not see any serious compressions artifacts, or large scratches, debris, marks, stains, etc. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


House Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: Japanese LPCM 1.0. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"The monaural soundtrack was remastered at 24-bit from an optical track print. Clicks, thumps, hiss, and hum were manually removed using Pro Tools HD. Crackle was attenuated using AudioCube's integrated audio workstation."

The Japanese LPCM 1.0 track is solid. Though its dynamic amplitude is limited, the sound has pleasing depth and clarity. The dialog is clean, stable, and very easy to follow. There are no serious balance issues with Asei Kobayashi and Micky Yoshino's haunting music score either. Lastly, the English translation is indeed very good.
