Jennifer 8

 (1992)

Jennifer 8 Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

A big city cop from LA moves to a small town police force and immediately finds himself investigating a murder. Using theories rejected by his colleagues, the cop, John Berlin, meets a young blind woman named Helena, who he is attracted to. Meanwhile, a serial killer is on the loose and only John knows it.

For more about Jennifer 8 and the Jennifer 8 Blu-ray release, see Jennifer 8 Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Starring: Andy García, Uma Thurman, Lance Henriksen, Graham Beckel, Kathy Baker, Kevin Conway
Director: Bruce Robinson

Jennifer 8 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Having recently sung the praises of cinematography legend Conrad Hall in my review of Marathon Man, I will simply add that everyone has clunkers on their résumé, and Jennifer 8 is one of Hall's. Still, Hall performed with his usual professionalism, especially when lighting the many night scenes, rainy days and dark interiors where much of Jennifer 8 plays out.

Warner's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray, from a transfer by Paramount, will almost certainly be a disappointment to those Blu-ray afficionados whose knee-jerk reaction to a certain kind of softness in the image is to assume that the transfer is faulty. Hall was a pioneer in the deliberate creation of photographic effects that had previously been deemed "mistakes", including lens flares, overexposing the film by aiming the camera directly into bright lights and sacrificing detail for the sake of mood. His style is evident throughout Jennifer 8, even if it's not enough to patch all the holes in Robinson's leaky script.

For the most part, the blacks are deeply black, although they sometimes shade to gray in a scene where Hall deliberately allows an excess of brightness from a light source. The color palette is muted and washed out, in part because the film is set in Northern California during the rainy season (a point specifically noted in dialogue) and in part because blindness is a theme, both literally and metaphorically. A notable exception occurs at a Christmas Eve celebration, where bright colors blaze forth, especially a red sequined dress worn by Uma Thurman's Helena (the screencap doesn't do justice to its sparkles). Not surprisingly for a thriller, this burst of saturated color and good feeling is the prelude to danger.

Despite the frequent softness of the image, there is abundant detail, even in shadows of the many dark interiors. The average bitrate of 25.95 Mbps is on the high side for a movie without major action sequences, but it is appropriate for a film with a visible grain structure that has been well preserved and, except for a hint of sharpening in one or two shots, undisburbed by digital tampering. Jennifer 8 doesn't look like a contemporary film, but it looks like it should.


Jennifer 8 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Jennifer 8 was released in Dolby Stereo Surround and was remixed in Dolby Digital 5.1 for its 2000 DVD release. The 5.1 mix is presented here in lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1. It's an atmospheric track with a surround presence that conveys a general sense of ambiance, particularly during scenes involving rain, wind or snowstorms. Odd sounds in the ramshackle house where John Berlin takes up residence, and the sounds of water dripping when Helena takes a bath, not realizing that an intruder is present, give off slight echoes around the listening room. The dialogue is intelligible (if not clear in its exposition), and the soundtrack by Christopher Young (Hellraiser, Drag Me to Hell) provides a sense of urgency that the plot itself cannot match.
