House of Dark Shadows Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

House of Dark Shadows is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Warner Brothers with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. This is yet another catalog title many fans probably thought they'd never see in high definition, and the results are really quite surprisingly good, especially considering the less than blockbuster budget this film was afforded during its production. Colors are wonderfully saturated, including that "Hammer"-esque red blood that drips from various wounds and fangs throughout the film. Contrast is generally quite strong, though a lot of the darker segments (and there are many of them in the film) suffer from a lack of shadow detail and in a case or two outright crush. Fine detail is quite vivid in close-ups. The higher resolution of the Blu-ray really points out some of the pretty shoddy day for night photography, however— while things are shaded and dusky, there's very obvious bright blue sky in the background of several of these segments. On the other hand, Frid's old age makeup looks remarkably good and convincing.


House of Dark Shadows Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

House of Dark Shadows features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio Mono track that is fairly effective, though it's hobbled by an overly shallow sounding midrange and also has some synch problems from time to time that were probably inherent even in the theatrical exhibition. Fidelity is fine, though there is occasional minor distortion when things get overly noisy, as in some sequences featuring obviously looped screams.
