Island of Lost Souls Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.33:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Erle C. Kenton's Island of Lost Souls arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Eureka Entertainment.

I did a number of comparisons between this release and Criterion's Blu-ray release and think that one would have a very difficult time finding any major discrepancies between the two. Projecting the two releases, I certainly could not see any. Yes, there are contrast and clarity fluctuations, but they are inherited, and present on both releases. Additionally, brightness levels are also practically identical, with the Criterion release possibly having black levels slightly toned down a bit during specific scenes, though the difference is marginal at best, and, in my opinion, unrecognizable during normal playback (compare screencature #9 with screencapture #2 from our review of the Criterion release). Grain is properly resolved. Additionally, I did not see any traces of problematic lab tinkering to report in this review. To sum it all up, fans of Island of Lost Souls residing outside of Region-A territories who could not take advantage of Criterion's Blu-ray release should be enormously pleased with Eureka Entertainment's Blu-ray release. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Island of Lost Souls Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. For the record, Eureka Entertainment have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The lossless audio track serves the film well. Obviously, there are some limitations, such as minor clarity fluctuations and inherited light background hiss, but dynamic stabilizations have clearly been performed and fluidity improved. In other words, the audio has been optimized as best as possible. For the record, there are no audio dropouts or serious distortions to report in this review.
