Season of the Witch Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Season of the Witch came under what I consider to be unwarranted criticism (among much general warranted criticism) for its look, but you'd be hard pressed to prove it by this sterling AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. Does the film eschew realism and often give us impressionistic, painterly backgrounds a la a sort of Medieval 300? Undoubtedly. Does it often wallow in horror and fantasy movie clichés of heavily filtered hues, typically either cobalt blue or sepia? Undoubtedly. And yet the film often looks lustrous in high definition, no matter what one may think of the actual content. From the first extreme close-ups of a hapless priest closing in on three ostensible witches, fine detail is abundant, with every hair seemingly individually countable. Though the film has some smudgy CGI at times, that only seems to heighten the surreal feeling, for better or worse. Light is used very creatively throughout the film, with dapples of darkness and bright hues dancing around the frame, and that is captured magnificently on this Blu-ray. The long sequence is Wormwood Forest is a luscious display of excellent color even within a highly filtered environment, though this is one of the occasional times throughout the film where crush is apparent. Contrast and black levels are solid throughout Season of the Witch, and I for one think this is one of the sharpest looking Blu-rays in recent memory. It's too bad the film itself isn't better.


Season of the Witch Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

Season of the Witch is presented with a boisterous and occasionally bombastic lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track which makes the most of the film's horror and fantasy elements, with some inventive, if at times hackneyed, immersion. The inventiveness comes in a series of well executed (no pun intended) montage sequences early in the film, where a series of battle sounds effortlessly segue into each other, with the quicksilver clashing of swords spilling into various surround channels as one battle melts into another. Also very well done are several distinct foley effects, as in the opening sequence dealing with the execution of three supposed witches, whose necks all snap at the end of ropes with appropriate aplomb. There's also a kind of funny panning effect as one witch screams across the soundfield as she meets her demise. Some of the mix, while undeniably effective, falls back on cliché-ridden tropes, as when the knights come across two people supposedly dead from the Plague, which of course means one has to jolt unexpectedly with an attendant burst of LFE. It will no doubt produce a startle response, as well as a quick rolling of the eyes afterward. Dialogue is pretty resolutely anchored in the front channels, though occasionally we get appropriate directionality. The final sequence with the biggest, baddest demon plays out with a fair amount of bombast, with various sound effects ricocheting around the soundfield and creating a very detailed amount of immersion.
