Mortuary

 (2005)

Mortuary Blu-ray features mediocre video and decent audio, but overall it's a poor Blu-ray release

The Doyle family moves to rural California to start a new life; perhaps a strange choice because their new life takes on the form of running the long abandoned Fowler Brothers Funeral Home. The locals fear the place, and there are whispers around town that the land the home lies on is haunted. The Doyle family will soon discover that something lurks beneath the soil — something that raises rotten corpses from their long forgotten graves and feeds on death itself.

For more about Mortuary and the Mortuary Blu-ray release, see Mortuary Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.0 out of 5.

Starring: Dan Byrd, Price Carson, Denise Crosby, Greg Travis (I)
Director: Tobe Hooper

Mortuary Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

Presented in 1080p utilizing the MPEG-2 codec (at an average bitrate of 19Mbps), Mortuary is fairly underwhelming as a high-definition product. Typical of a low-bitrate MPEG-2 transfer, the level of fine-object detail is marginal at best, with a noticeable softening of textures (most prevalent in facial close-ups). Further hampering the visual quality is a generally drab color spectrum that appears heavily filtered in an effort to generate an overcast look. As a result, there's a bluish tint that dominates the daytime sequences and adds to the dreary feel of the production. Unfortunately, the situation doesn't improve significantly with black levels, which rarely sink to inky depths during low-light scenes, leaving contrast appearing less differentiated than I'd like. On a positive note, I never noticed the presence of digital artifacting, edge haloes, or other transfer related defects, but there's a significant amount of grain littering the backgrounds of almost every scene.


Mortuary Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Containing a surprising number of audio tracks (all in the native language of English), Mortuary delivers a decent audio experience for a low-budget production, though I'm still disappointed by the lack of a lossless surround track to round out the selection. Having sampled each track throughout the course of the film, I finally arrived at the conclusion that the best surround mix is the DTS option. It's certainly not light-years beyond the proficiency of the Dolby Digital 5.1 mix, but sounded slightly fuller to my ears. One of the driving forces behind the chills and thrills of a horror film is the establishment of a strong audio presence to set the mood. In that regard, I'd say Mortuary is a success, with spine-tingling music that slowly builds to a crescendo when the action kicks into gear. Sound effects are well-placed throughout the surround field to establish floor-board creaks and footsteps that creep in from all directions as if your standing within the scene. Dialogue is the only area of weakness in the overall balance of the track, since it's occasionally drowned out by the music or overly loud effects. Taken as a whole, I doubt many viewers will find much to complain about in the DTS audio track, though a lossless track would have been a welcomed addition in place of the other three inferior tracks.
