Re-Animator Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The source material for Image Entertainment's 1080p, VC-1-encoded Blu-ray is in remarkably good condition, considering the age and low budget of the production. Except for occasional, minor speckling and a few random print blotches, the material is clean. (I know this sentiment isn't universally shared, but I actually enjoy the occasional print flaw; it's how I've seen film for most of my life.) The overall image is soft, which has led some internet posters to claim that the Blu-ray is a DVD "upconvert". It isn't, and any claim to the contrary bespeaks an over-reliance on screenshots. There's too much detail in faces, hair, clothing, sets and make-up for the Blu-ray to be an upconvert from a 480p image, and it's the kind of detail that isn't necessarily obvious from a still frame. (People too often forget that Blu-ray is a lossy video format and "persistence of vision" plays its part in video compression.) This isn't to say that a new scan at some future date might not reveal additional layers from the negative of Re-Animator, because the technology for translating film to the digital realm is constantly improving. But the current Blu-ray is no slouch and offers a worthy presentation of this tricky material.

Black levels are generally excellent, which is essential for the many scenes that use darkness strategically. Colors, notably blood red and the peculiar green of Herbert West's re-animating "agent", are vibrant and well-saturated; this quality is also noticeable in the famous title sequence designed by Robert Dawson (Ed Wood, Point Break, The Fifth Element and many others). The film's grain structure appears natural and unfiltered, and there is no evidence of artificial sharpening. To accommodate the film and extensive extras, Image uncharacteristically stretched for a BD-50.

I do not have the Elite "Millennium Edition" for direct comparison, but I have looked at a few of the screen captures that show cropping on the Blu-ray as compared to that edition. The Elite DVD has black borders on all four sides, a practice that was sometimes adopted by DVD producers when CRT sets with major overscan were still the prevailing display device. Now that overscan is much less of an issue, I suspect that Blu-ray producers are more comfortable filling the disc's entire frame. In any case, the compositions on the Re-Animator Blu-ray did not look cramped or compromised.


Re-Animator Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The film's original mono track was remixed at some point for 5.1 and is presented here as DTS-HD MA 5.1. There's nothing particularly surround-worthy about the mix, but the format does give Richard Band's lively score room to breathe, and it sounds great. Dialogue is so clear that you can immediately detect almost every bit of looping, which only adds to the film's low-budget character.
