Room 237 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Assembled from a wide variety of materials, both standard and high definition, Room 237's 1080p/AVC-encoded presentation is a total picture quality hodgepodge. The principal source is The Shining, of course, and thankfully, the footage from the film here doesn't look any different from Warner Bros. Blu-ray edition, albeit perhaps with a bit more compression. The color balance and the general level of clarity seem the same. Outside of The Shining, though, anything goes. Clips from 2001: A Space Odyssey and Eyes Wide Shut look fine, while excerpts from Paths of Glory are a muddled, macroblocking-ridden mess. And so it goes. A lot of the archival footage—vintage news reels, Nazi marches, old cartoons—look as though they were ripped straight from a 360p YouTube stream, while other bits and bobs are sharp and well-defined. The most I can really say here is that IFC's Blu-ray is probably true to the source materials—it adds no undue compression or other artifacts—and that there's enough high definition footage here to make a Blu-ray purchase preferable to DVD.


Room 237 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

IFC gives us two audio options here, a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track and an uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0 stereo mixdown. I actually found I preferred the stereo mix, as the score in the multichannel offering seems a bit too loud in the rear speakers at times, potentially distracting from the commentary. But damn—what a score. Musicians/composers Jonathan Snipes and William Hutson have created a pitch-perfect imitation of a late 1970s, early 1980s-style horror score, drawing heavily on the influence of Goblin and Tangerine Dream, John Carpenter and Wendy Carlos. (Expect lots of synthesizer lines.) The music sounds great, but many of the audio interviews sound as though they were recorded via Skype or at home using an in-computer microphone. Still, everything is generally easy to understand. The disc includes optional English SDH and Spanish subtitles.
