Phantom of the Paradise Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Phantom of the Paradise is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Scream Factory (an imprint of Shout! Factory) with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.85:1. This film has seen several European Blu-ray releases, including British and French, though for the purposes of this review, probably only the British release need be addressed for comparative purposes, as that was reportedly sourced from the same new(ish) high definition master Fox did on this title which evidently also served as the basis for this release. A cursory comparison of screenshots (I've tried to provide at least a few which come close to those in Svet's review of the Arrow release) shows that color timing has been tweaked on this new Shout release (as Shout's own Cliff MacMillan has indicated on our Forum). The overall look here is considerably brighter a lot of the time (compare the screenshots of Graham in the shower), but there's also a noticeably cooler color space a lot of the time which (to my eyes, anyway) seems more natural and less contrast boosted looking than the Arrow release. This might therefore be seen as a nice middle ground between the British and French releases, at least in terms of color timing. The transfer boasts richly saturated colors one way or the other, and also has a natural looking grain field which expectedly spikes during opticals (the film has a lot of split screen elements). Blacks are especially lush and deep throughout this presentation. The increased resolution of this presentation only points out a few inherent problems which were caused when the name of Swan's record label needed to be changed in post-production. These include some wavering matte lines and the like, but nothing is ultimately that distracting.


Phantom of the Paradise Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Phantom of the Paradise features DTS-HD Master Audio tracks in both 2.0 and 5.1 Amplitude on the 2.0 track seems anemic when compared to the 5.1 track, and there's simply no comparison when it comes to the music, which is much more vibrant, spacious and full of low end in the surround iteration. There are occasional moments of a kind of boxy phased quality in the 5.1 mix (listen to Rod Serling's opening narration for an example), but overall fidelity is superb, offering both the score and the dialogue with clarity and precision. Neither track has any problems to cause concern.
