Man in the Dark 3D Blu-ray despite stunning video and great audio falls short as an overall poor Blu-ray release

Man in the Dark 3D Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Man in the Dark is presented on Blu-ray with AVC (2D) and MVC (3D) encoded 1080p transfers in 1.33:1. This little remembered film has been sourced from pristine elements and I personally have a hunch Columbia have had the original camera negative available based on the results. (Even if that isn't the case, the film's brief length and relative lack of star power probably meant it was not broadcast very much—I certainly don't remembering ever having seen it growing up—and so even secondary elements could be in tip top condition.) Contrast is extremely strong, offering a nicely variegated array of gray scale, whites and blacks. There are a couple of oddly soft shots—some of them at the amusement park later in the film —but the bulk of this transfer looks sharp as a tack, with a completely intact layer of grain and no egregious signs of any digital tampering.

The 3D experience is similarly excellent, yet another example of the old method having made the transition into modern day efforts with surprising impact. Director Lew Landers exploits the medium throughout the film, with several "in your face" shots (see screenshot 3 for a typical example). Some viewers may experience very minor crosstalk depending on their setups in some of these shots where objects are thrust directly straight forward at the viewer, rather than being seen from an angle. Otherwise, though, the 3D experience here is remarkably nuanced, with clear foreground differentiation and a nice amount of depth into the frame.


Man in the Dark 3D Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Man in the Dark features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio Mono track which is perfectly serviceable for a film that has few real sonic ambitions. Most of the film is simply dialogue driven, though there are a couple of good sequences where the soundtrack kicks up a notch, including the early chase after Rawley is abducted, and the final sequence in the amusement park. Fidelity is fine on this track, and there's no damage to report.
