Massage Parlor Murders Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The AVC encoded image (1.85:1 aspect ratio) has been assembled from 35mm elements, with the masters at Vinegar Syndrome doing their very best to polish the picture despite working with footage that's clearly in rough shape. Print damage is present, along with some shake and harsh reel changes, yet the overall quality of the image is impressive for an obscure title like this. Instead of ruinous, "Massage Parlor Murders" looks amazingly fresh, with tasteful coloring that brings out the brown costumes and red blood, while street visits also carry natural hues, supporting the funky highlights of the locations. Skintones are also quite inviting, keeping flesh pink and presentable. Grain is managed satisfactorily, with shots varying in intensity. Fine detail is limited to the ragtag cinematography, but textures are available for inspection, preserving thespian concern and sidewalk grime. Shadow detail isn't in tip-top shape, often solidifying screen information, making a few low-light encounters difficult to discern. Overall visual quality is inconsistent, but this is likely the best the enterprise has ever looked.


Massage Parlor Murders Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

The 2.0 Dolby Digital track is expectedly thin, matching the visual materials in terms of innate craftsmanship limitations. The picture is largely dubbed, though dialogue exchanges remain murky, with a few lines lost during the listening experience. It's not a crisp presentation, but it's acceptable for what the movie is, finding soundtrack selections blended unsteadily with verbal activity, though music remains discernible, rarely overcrowding the track. Highs are crackly, and hiss and pops are present throughout. Again, the source material is sketchy at best, making the BD acceptable for what the producers were up against. Still, keep that volume control handy to catch everything the film has to offer.
