Les Vampires Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Authorized by Gaumont Studios—now the oldest continuously operating film production company—Kino's new 1080p/AVC-encoded Blu-ray is sourced from a 1996 restoration overseen by the Cinémathèque Française and Louis Feuillade's grandson, Jacques Champreux. As with most silent Kino releases, the seven-hour film is essentially presented as-is, with no attempt to digitally remove specks, scratches, or other age-related issues. The print damage is consistent throughout—white spots, brightness flickering, contrast changes, vertical lines, even visible sprocket holes at times—but for a film approaching one hundred years old, Les Vampires is in surprisingly decent shape, with no major warping and few distracting stains. The high definition remaster presents an immediately appreciable upgrade in clarity compared to Image Entertainment's DVD set, and if you're familiar with the films, you'll definitely notice newfound detail and refined textures. Tonally, this new release is better too, with more natural-looking color casts during the tinted sequences and a black and white gradient that's generally punchy without looking overblown. Finally, the picture looks untouched by DNR or edge enhancement, and there are no apparent compression issues. A pleasure to watch.


Les Vampires Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Kino has commissioned the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra to compile and perform a new score, and the results—presented by way of an uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0 stereo track—are wonderful. The music is always complementary to the onscreen action, without overpowering it, and it sounds clear and clean, with good presence and more than sufficient dynamic breadth. Some might be disappointed to learn that that Robert Israel score from Image Entertainment's DVD set isn't also included as an option here, but personally, I think the Mont Alto compositions suit the film fine. I should also note here that instead of keeping—and subtitling—the original French intertitles, Kino has built new intertitles from scratch, using period-appropriate typefaces and design. I've thoroughly suppressed my inner purist, and I'm actually quite happy with the new title cards.
