Humanoids from the Deep Blu-ray delivers great video and mediocre audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Something horrendous is happening in the sleepy fishing village of Noyo. An aquaculture experiment has gone very wrong and the results-fish-like humanoids- are rising from the sea to spawn their vengeance.

For more about Humanoids from the Deep and the Humanoids from the Deep Blu-ray release, see Humanoids from the Deep Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Humanoids from the Deep Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Humanoids from the Deep's 1080p transfer is the best yet to come from Shout! Factory's Roger Corman Blu-ray releases. Like the other Corman titles, this one's littered with some excess noise, crushed blacks, random lines, dirt and debris, blooming, a few soft elements, and a bit of banding, but none of it, save for the noise, appears with any kind of excess. Given the picture's age, cheap production, and the like, it's a bit easier to dismiss the problems found about the transfer, particularly considering that some of them actually enhance the film's drive-in appeal while the image as a whole still benefits from the Blu-ray boost. Indeed, colors and details are surprisingly strong in many places; the opening minutes on a fishing boat feature nicely-rendered rusty and weathered surfaces while also capturing the nuances of the wooden deck and the trinkets scattered about the ship. Several exterior scenes come alive with nicely-detailed sand and dirt terrains and foliage. Colors are surprisingly steady and vibrant in many scenes, too, even if they do fade a bit in a few places, notably around some of the softer shots in the film. Humanoids From the Deep certainly doesn't stand toe-to-toe with some of the best of the new releases-turned-Blu-ray, but all things considered, this is a top-notch transfer from Shout! Factory.


Humanoids from the Deep Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

Like Piranha, Humanoids from the Deep features a messy but adequate PCM 2.0 soundtrack. There's not much to this one; it's center-focused and rarely features any distinctive elements off to the sides. It's an ear-piercing track that's too loud at normal listening levels, and even though it's never lacking in volume, it wants for the crispness and spaciousness of better tracks, even those of the 2.0 variety. There are a few pops scattered about the track, while screams, music, and some dialogue sound shrill and indistinct. Several sound effects -- a ringing telephone, a few gunshots -- are also absent clarity and play instead like canned tape-recorded effects. Still, the track more often than not chugs along well enough; there are some jarring elements that will have listeners lamenting the absence of a more refined presentation, but things never get so bad as to ruin the experience.
