Santa Sangre

 (1989)

Santa Sangre Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this excellent 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 4.0 out of 5.

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

Santa Sangre Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Alejandro Jodorowsky's Santa Sangre arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Mr. Bongo Films.

The high-definition transfer appears to have been sourced from the new master French distributors Wild Side Films prepared for Santa Sangre. It looks very similar to the one Severin Films used for their release of the film in the U.S., but there are obvious differences. On the U.S. release brightness levels appear to have been elevated quite a lot, at times making the film look pale. Here the brightness levels are better balanced, and the variety of blacks, blues, grays, and reds looking a lot healthier and better saturated. There are no traces of excessive sharpening. Grain is visible, but some of it is also mixed with light noise. Occasionally, some light compression artifacts also pop up, especially where natural light is in abundance. There are no serious stability issues. Large debris, damage marks, stains, and big scratches are nowhere to be seen. All in all, though slightly uneven, this is a very good presentation of Alejandro Jodorowsky's cult film. I also prefer the overall look of this release over the U.S. release mentioned above. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location. For the record, there is no problematic PAL or 1080/50i content preceding the disc's main menu).


Santa Sangre Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS 2.0. For the record, Mr. Bongo Films have not provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

It would have been nice to have the DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track from the U.S. release on this release, but I ran some direct comparisons and the gap in quality between the two is actually fairly small. Depth is slightly better on the lossless track, but dynamic intensity is virtually the same. I also cannot say that fluidity suffers. The dialog is equally stable and easy to follow.
