Shanks Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Shanks is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Olive Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.78:1. This is another really nice looking offering from Olive, one that probably benefits from the fact that the film was a colossal dud on its release and never even showed up on television very often, leaving the source elements utilized for this high definition transfer in remarkably good condition. That said, it's obvious that Castle wasn't working with a huge budget here, and some of the cinematography is kind of bargain basement looking, especially some of the outdoor locations shots which suffer from a certain fuzzy ragged quality. That is offset by the studio sequences which pop quite nicely, at least relatively speaking. As with some other sixties and seventies offerings from Olive, colors may have faded just slightly, and the image never approaches the crystalline clarity of more contemporary outings, but close-ups offer quite good fine detail (to the point that prosthetics in Marceau's make-up are clearly visible). Once again there appears to have been no digital tweaking of any kind applied to the source elements.


Shanks Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Believe it or not, Shanks actually was an Oscar nominee the year it was released, for Alex North's haunting (if minimalist) score, one that comes through rather well on this Blu-ray's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio Mono track. North, certainly one of the more protean talents of his era, doesn't ply traditional horror score tropes here and instead offers a moody, introspective set of cues that are arguably one of Shanks' best features. What little dialogue is in the film comes through clearly and cleanly, and the occasional foley effects are also rendered very well. Fidelity is excellent, but dynamic range is negligible.
