Onibaba

 (1964)

Onibaba Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Deep within the windswept marshes of war-torn medieval Japan, an impoverished mother and her daughter-in-law eke out a desperate existence. Forced to murder lost samurai and sell their belongings for grain, they dump the corpses and live off of their meager spoils. When a bedraggled neighbor enters the scene, lust, jealousy, and rage threaten to destroy the trio’s tenuous existence, before an ominous, ill-gotten demon mask seals their fate. With stunning images, both lyrical and macabre, Kaneto Shindo’s chilling folktale ONIBABA is a singular cinematic experience.

For more about Onibaba and the Onibaba Blu-ray release, see Onibaba Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Nobuko Otowa, Jitsuko Yoshimura
Director: Kaneto Shindō

Onibaba Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.39:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Kaneto Shindo's Onibaba arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Eureka Entertainment.

I like the high-definition transfer a lot. In fact, I would argue that it is one of the very best used by Eureka Entertainment for an Asian film from their catalog. Something else worth mentioning is that its basic characteristics seem very similar to those of the high-definition transfer Criterion used for their Blu-ray release of Shindo's Kuroneko.
Detail and depth are often outstanding, especially during many of the daylight close-ups (see screencapture #17). Clarity is also very good, even where light is restricted. Contrast is stable. Despite the fact that there are a few scenes where the blacks become a bit too strong (see screencapture #14), there is good overall balance balance between the blacks, grays and whites. There are no traces of excessive degraning corrections. Problematic sharpening corrections have not been applied either. Excluding a few shaky frame transition, there are no serious stability issues. Lastly, there are a few specks popping up early into the film, but there are no large cuts, debris, or damage marks. To sum it all up, this is a very solid organic presentation of Onibaba that is guaranteed to please its fans. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Onibaba Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray disc: Japanese LPCM 2.0. For the record, Eureka Entertainment have provided optional English subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they appear inside the image frame.

Excluding some very light background hiss that occasionally makes its presence felt, depth and fluidity are excellent. Hikaru Hayashi's atmospheric score also benefits from the lossless treatment, though one should not expect a wide range of nuanced dynamics. The sound is simply fuller, better rounded, and with stable high-frequencies. The dialog is clear and easy to follow. The English translation is excellent.
