Nightmares Come at Night

 (1970)

Nightmares Come at Night Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

For years considered a lost Franco film (after having played at a single theater in Belgium), Nightmares Come at Night was rediscovered in 2004 and has been recognized as a key film in the evolution of Franco's cinema, which in 1970 was assuming a dreamlike logic, governed more by the director's libido than the traditional horror movie structure.

For more about Nightmares Come at Night and the Nightmares Come at Night Blu-ray release, see Nightmares Come at Night Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Nightmares Come at Night Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Included on the disc is a great little featurette that has Kino Blu-ray producer Brett Wood explaining the picture quality peculiarities inherent in Nightmares Come at Night given the film's low budget and strange lost-but-now-found history. Wood discusses how the 35mm print used here —the same one that was discovered in 2004 and used for Media Blasters' DVD—was actually a quick answer print not intended for distribution, which explains why there are some haphazard hairs and bits of debris that were permanently burned into the image during its creation. (An answer print is used by the filmmakers to do a final check on the coloring, look, and feel of the finished project before proper copies are made for theatrical exhibition.) Along with these burned-in marks, the picture also displays the usual assortment of age-related markings, from small fleeting white specks to long vertical scratches that run for several seconds at a time. Wood was able to attenuate some of this damage—he shows us a before and after sample—but the cleanup was by no means comprehensive. On the plus side, the lack of a significant digital overhaul means the 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer is also largely free from digital artifacts, over-filtering, or other effects of careless meddling. The print may be scuffed up, but it looks entirely natural and filmic, with a visible layer of grain. (Grain spikes almost ridiculously during the flashback scenes, but this, according to Wood, was all part of Franco's intent.) Clarity is drastically improved from the DVD, and it's also clear that the print has been balanced out by an attentive colorist.


Nightmares Come at Night Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Kino gives us two audio options on the disc, the original French track and a more contemporary-sounding English dub, both presented in uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0 mono. The English dub feels a little off to me—it's not nearly as good as the ones for A Virgin Among the Living Dead or The Awful Dr. Orlof—so I'd recommend staying with the French mix. Like the picture, the track has its share of age-related damage—a low-level hiss at times, some pops and crackles—but given the film's age, budget, and background, this isn't unexpected. All thing considered, the the mix is still very listenable, with clear-enough dialogue, good projection, and a high end that doesn't sound overly brittle or harsh. The highlight is Bruno Nicolai's eclectic score, which goes from discordant horror cues to funk-jazz freakouts and back again. The disc includes optional English subtitles.
