Invasion of the Body Snatchers Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Invasion of the Body Snatchers is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Olive Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.00:1. This somewhat unusual aspect ratio is the result of the film being repurposed prior to release in "Superscope", a short-lived widescreen process that producer Walter Wanger was vehemently opposed to since he felt it deprived the image of clarity and fine detail. Interestingly, Superscope was a post-production process which converted nonanamorphic source elements to an anamorphic format. The result is that there is a certain softness to some aspects of the film and this transfer, specifically with regard to midrange and far shots. That said, this high definition presentation is remarkably crisp most of the time, with very pleasing fine detail in the many close-ups, and decent if occasionally problematic contrast and some very deep and convincing black levels. The elements here are in remarkably good condition, though eagle eyed videophiles will notice some very occasional damage, including some odd cloudly black mars that crop up on the far right side of the frame a time or two (look closely in the sequence when Miles is talking with "Uncle Ira" early in the film for a good example). Olive continues its tradition of releasing product that does not appear to have been even slightly digitally tweaked, so this retains a very natural filmic appearance. This is certainly heads and shoulders above the previous DVD releases, and despite some niggling problems should please the film's ardent fans.


Invasion of the Body Snatchers Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Invasion of the Body Snatchers features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio Mono track that sounds surprisingly full, considering its age and its built in narrowness. Dialogue is very cleanly and clearly presented and the track reproduces the wonderfully effective score of Carmen Dragon beautifully. (Trivia alert number two: Dragon's son Daryl is The Captain of pop group The Captain and Tennille.) Fidelity is excellent throughout the track and there isn't even any really noticeable hiss or other age related issues.
