Night of the Living Dead Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

Night of the Living Dead is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Twilight Time with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.85:1. The issue of the filtering has been debated now ad infinitum, and my two cents on the subject is probably neither here nor there, but here goes: as far as I'm concerned the opening few minutes of the film in the cemetery look fine, as a quick comparison to the trailer (also included on this Blu-ray) proves. The filtering kicks in and is quite noticeable after the credits sequence (which is quite long with several gaps) ends and Barbara runs to the farmhouse. At that point the film grows darker, though once Barbara enters the farmhouse, things are dark anyway, somewhat mitigating the filtering. There are some anomalies even within this filtering, however, including one sequence at around 27:50 that strangely seems not to have been filtered at all (see screencap 4). If you can get past these changes (which it's obvious many people are having a hard time doing), the transfer actually boasts quite good clarity and color. Contrast is also very strong, making the nighttime sequences (the bulk of the film) pop quite well with very good shadow detail and a lack of crush. Fine object detail is also very good in close-ups, with some of the gruesome makeup work looking spectacularly gory and bloody, though midrange shots tend to look a bit soft and fuzzy quite a bit of the time.

I've docked the score a full one and a half points for the filtering; I'm sure some will complain that isn't enough. My reason for doing so is I tend to be more in the "purist" camp that Marty Liebman talks about in his French Connection review linked above, i.e., I want my Blu- rays to accurately recreate the original theatrical exhibition. But viewed at least semi-objectively (I've never claimed to be a rabid fan of either the 1968 or 1990 versions of the film), I think the transfer's positives are as obvious as its negative(s). One has to separate how one prefers a film to look from how it actually does in assessing the quality of the transfer. Those who are upset about the changes are going to focus on that element and tend to ignore the rest of the film; those who either don't care or have no baseline reference for how the film "used to look" will probably have a decidedly more favorable overall reaction to this transfer. The fact is that despite the filtering detail is still well above average and the film retains an overall level of clarity that is at the very least decent, and often a good deal more than that. There's still very natural looking grain structure and despite the filtering Night of the Living Dead retains a cinematic appearance.


Night of the Living Dead Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Night of the Living Dead features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix which offers excellent fidelity and fairly consistent surround activity, at least when the zombies are attacking. In fact a lot of the sound effects are rather widely splayed around the side and rear channels, adding to the incipient feeling of being surrounded by nasty undead folks. Dialogue is cleanly presented, and the film's rather fulsome LFE (not necessarily limited to shotgun blasts, although there are those in abundance) rings out loudly and forcefully. The mix here may be just a tad front heavy for some, but there are several standout sequences that really immerse the listener in the all encompassing mayhem.
