Spider Baby

 (1968)

Spider Baby Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

In a dilapidated rural mansion, the last generation of the degenerate, inbred Merrye family lives with the inherited curse of a disease that causes them to mentally regress from the age of 10 or so on as they physically develop. The family chauffeur looks out for them and covers up their indiscretions. Trouble comes when greedy distant relatives and their lawyer arrive to dispossess the family of its home...

Spider Baby Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 1.67:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Jack Hill's Spider Baby arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Arrow Video.

The high-definition transfer used for this upcoming release of Jack Hill's Spider Baby is one of the best I've seen in Arrow Video's catalog. Excluding some minor specks that pop up a few times, the film looks as healthy and vibrant as one would expect it to look on Blu-ray. During indoor and outdoor shots image depth and fluidity are excellent. Close-ups with a decent amount of light, in particular, look quite beautiful (see screencapture #8). The darker and nighttime footage also boasts rather impressive clarity (see screencaptures #9 and 10). There are absolutely no traces of problematic degraining or sharpening corrections. There are no signs of color or contrast boosting either. Needless to say, the film has a wonderfully vibrant and very stable organic look. Finally, there are no serious stability issues to report in this review. All in all, I am convinced that fans of Spider Baby will be utterly delighted with the film's quite impressive transition to Blu-ray. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Spider Baby Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There is only one standard audio track on this Blu-ray release: English LPCM 2.0. For the record, Arrow Video have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

Ronald Stein's atmospheric orchestral score gets a very serious boost from the lossless treatment. The strings, in particular, add quite a bit of flavor to the film. Overall dynamic intensity, however, is limited. In fact, there are some minor dynamic fluctuations during select sequences, but the lossless track should not be blamed for it. The dialog is stable, clean, and easy to follow. Also, there are no audio dropouts, pops, or distortions to report in this review.
