Puppet Master Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.0 of 5

Puppetmaster makes its high-definition -- and correctly-framed -- debut with a problematic but watchable 1080p transfer framed at 1.78:1. According to the disc's introduction featuring series Creator Charles Band, the film was originally shot in 35mm, and this disc has been remastered from original elements while maintaining its director-intended aspect ratio. Unfortunately, the end result isn't a stellar presentation. While there's no doubt that this is the best Puppet Master has ever looked, there's more bad here than good. The good news is that the film definitely looks like high definition material. Fine details aren't as crisp and satisfying as those seen on the better releases of films hailing from the same era, but there's no doubt that the increased resolution has only helped the presentation. Unfortunately, the image appears to be the victim of digital smoothing; human flesh looks particularly waxy and devoid of intricate details. Additionally, the image suffers from dull colors, banding, and poor color gradations, the latter two giving the film a chunky, disheartening appearance. Flesh tones lean towards an orange shade, but blacks, while mostly stable, sometimes appear a bit pale. The transfer also features wobbly opening tile credits and several scenes are littered with heavy scratching and debris. Puppet Master, despite the remaster, just doesn't look all that good next to even the average Blu-ray release. Still, fans will want to upgrade for the boost in overall resolution and to own a copy of the film presented in its proper framing.


Puppet Master Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.0 of 5

Puppetmaster arrives on Blu-ray with a messy but adequate Dolby Digital 2.0 soundtrack. This one sounds awfully mushy at times and, frankly, fares little-to-no better than a track recycled from a very old LaserDisc or...yikes...VHS release. Music plays with an obvious lack of clarity, failing to even match some of the really mundane track out there, like those accompanying Super Bowl and Stanley Cup highlight videos. Sound effects lack any sort of power; a gunshot early in the film is absent any sort of heft, and the various sounds the puppets make yield no audible impact that adds to the film's story or tension. Most everything is crammed up the middle, and while dialogue is usually clear enough, this track simply does nothing more than deliver the most basic sound presentation it can get away with. Note that according to the packaging, this release was to offer a Dolby Digital 5.1 track, though it's nowhere to be found on the disc.
