Oasis of the Zombies Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Like Zombie Lake and most of the other Kino/Redemption releases, Oasis of the Zombies is essentially presented "as-is," with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer of an archival negative that hasn't been significantly touched-up or restored. I may be in the minority here, but for a movie like this, I don't necessarily mind watching a battered, scratch and fleck-heavy transfer—the damage gives a sense of the film's history and seems appropriate for a low-budget grindhouse title. Along with the usual white specks and hairs and abrasions, you'll also notice some odd warping of the picture here from time to time. Is this distracting? A bit, but it is what it is. Overall, Oasis of the Zombies is in slightly poorer condition than Zombie Lake, but Kino's transfer is certainly the best the film has ever looked on home video, simply by merit of being mastered in high definition. The clarity of the 35mm production is markably improved from DVD, with sharper lines and finer textures, and color seems accurate and sufficiently dense, with no oversaturation or contrast issues. Of course, Kino's hands-off approach also means that the film's grain structure has been preserved, and that no excess filtering or sharpening has been applied. One might say Oasis of the Zombies is loveably grimy on Blu-ray.


Oasis of the Zombies Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

The disc features two audio options, the original French or an English dub, both presented in uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0. Usually, I'm no fan of dubs, but since all of the film's sound was added in post-production—it was filmed silently, like a lot of low-budget horror from the period—the difference between the two tracks is negligible. Even the French mix looks and feels badly dubbed. So, take your pick. Tonally, the mixes are much the same as well; both are bass-less and quite peaky in the high-end, with sometimes cringe-inducing harshness in gunshots and other loud effects. I'd recommend keeping your receiver at a lower than normal volume. Dialogue is, at the very least, understandable, and the film's vaguely North African- inspired score has a decent sense of clarity. The disc includes optional English subtitles in easy-to-read white lettering.
