Santa Sangre

 (1989)

Santa Sangre Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

A young man is confined in a mental hospital. Through a flashback we see that he was traumatized as a child, when he and his family were circus performers: he saw his father cut off the arms of his mother, a religious fanatic and leader of the heretical church of Santa Sangre ("Holy Blood"), and then commit suicide. Back in the present, he escapes and rejoins his surviving and armless mother. Against his will, he "becomes her arms" and the two undertake a grisly campaign of murder and revenge.

For more about Santa Sangre and the Santa Sangre Blu-ray release, see Santa Sangre Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Starring: Axel Jodorowsky, Blanca Guerra, Sabrina Dennison, Adan Jodorowsky, Guy Stockwell, Faviola Tapia

Santa Sangre Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

For its first time on home video in the U.S., Santa Sangre makes a satisfying showing, with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that excels in detail and color reproduction. You'll notice straight away that careful attention has been paid to presenting a natural image. The film's 35mm grain structure is wholly intact, there's no evidence of DNR whatsoever, and although there are occasional traces of mild edge enhancement that can be noticed on certain hard outlines, you'd really have to go out of your way to look for it. I was also impressed by how clean the print is—I'm not sure what kind of restoration was undertaken on the film, if any, but there are practically no instances of visible dirt or debris here. Clarity is fully in keeping with the film's budget and time period—the picture may not always be tack sharp, but it looks true-to-source and has a rich, organic presence—and color is more than sufficiently dense, especially reds and other circus-y hues. Likewise, skin tones are accurate, black levels are plenty deep, and contrast is spot-on. There are a few times when highlights appear slightly blown out, but this is likely an exposure issue that's inherent in the film's negative. No biggie. There are really no distractions here at all—no excess compression noise, banding, blocking, aliasing, etc. This release has me excited to see what Holy Mountain would look like on Blu-ray.


Santa Sangre Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Rather than try to finagle a 5.1 mix out of the original stereo elements, Severin/MPI has wisely decided to present the film with a DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track. For the most part, it sounds wonderful. Dialogue is effortlessly clear and the balance is consistent—once you set a good listening level, you shouldn't have to touch your remote again. Simon Boswell's score carries plenty of dynamic heft and clarity, but some of the incidental pieces—like the various Mexican folk numbers—are a little shrill, with strings and horns that pierce a bit too harshly. No real complaints though. This is a listenable mix, with no hisses, dropouts, buzzes, or muffling. Do note that the disc only includes one subtitle option, and English SDH track that appears in large, easy- to-read white lettering.
