Next of Kin Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The AVC encoded image (1.78:1 aspect ratio) presentation shows some difficulty with black levels, which lean toward clotted in evening and low-lit encounters, snuffing out backgrounds and costume particulars. However, for a catalog title, fine detail is satisfactory, with comfortable reads on facial reactions, weapon brandishing, and production design achievements, with the Kentucky sequences retaining their alien appearance (thanks to Irvin's addiction to smoke machines). Grain is in good shape without an overt presence, gifting the image a subtle cinematic life, and the print is largely clean. The color palette looks on the muted side, but far from smothered, with hearty primary hues popping off city street lighting and vending machine warehouse items. Skintones appear a little bloodless but workable.


Next of Kin Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

The 2.0 DTS-HD MA sound mix carries a shrillness that's uncomfortable at times, especially with pronounced soundtrack selections that lack a balancing bass element. Without dimensionality, the mix carries a heavy frontal workload, though voices, while thin, are easily followed, making accents and performance speeds easily understood. Sync is iffy at certain moments, though this could be the result of extensive ADR work, which is surprisingly sloppy. Scoring is animated without encroaching on the dialogue exchanges, and atmospherics register strongly. Unfortunately, it's a strident track requiring a little volume riding to endure.
