Night of the Comet Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Night of the Comet is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Scream Factory, an imprint of Shout! Factory, with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.85:1. Night of the Comet was filmed on a mere pittance, and it often looks like it, though Eberhardt actually masks some of the low rent elements surprisingly well. Much of the film features a red tint, especially in exteriors, which only exacerbates an already generally quite soft looking presentation. That said, close-ups and even midrange shots can offer better than average amounts of fine detail—take a look at the ribbing on Maroney's red socks in the second screenshot or the tiny threads sticking up from her shoulder on her blue outfit in screenshot 13). Colors are well saturated and accurate looking. The elements utilized for this transfer have more than the usual amount of speckling and dirt, though there's no major damage to report. There doesn't appear to have been any overt digital tweaking of this image (as evidenced by those selfsame specks and dirt), leaving a very healthy layer of grain (which is of course magnified in some of the optical effects shots).


Night of the Comet Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Night of the Comet features both a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 mix recreating the film's original sound design, as well as a still fairly front heavy DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 remix. The 5.1 mix does have some good surround activity, especially with regard to the ubiquitous wind foley effect, but immersion is not consistent or overwhelming enough to really make a cogent case for why this "upgrade" was considered. Both tracks offer excellent fidelity, cleanly delivering the well prioritized dialogue. Neither of the tracks has any damage to report.
