TerrorVision / The Video Dead Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

TerrorVision
Score: 3.0/5


TerrorVision has never looked better on home video, but then again there's not an awful lot with which to compare it. Shout! Factory's high definition presentation isn't exactly the poster child for stunning Blu-ray catalogue material, but viewers will find a watchable and stable image. It's severely flat and rather pasty. There's no life or texture to the film, and even a light bit of grain can't seem to help improve on it. Flesh tones -- and the color palette in general -- are quite warm. Those colors are rather bland, too; there's almost no pop, brilliance, or vibrancy to any shade in the film, even the daughter's multicolored makeup, the nude art on the walls, or the flags and other assorted items in Grampa's bunker. The image does offer adequate details; the monster looks quite good, and the Blu-ray brings out many of the nasty, slimy intricacies to be seen on its body. Small details like wear on grampa's guns, the definition of little objects around the house, or the massive remote control look good enough. This is certainly not a reference quality video presentation, but at the very least it's a workable image that should please fans who have not seen the movie through other than very low grade tapes.

The Video Dead
Score: 3.5/5


The Video Dead features a fairly strong high definition transfer. The image enjoys a grain overlay; it's a little spiky but consistent and not too terribly heavy. Fine details range from satisfying to excellent. Clothing and facial details are of good, filmic quality. The image is stable, sharp, crisp, and consistent. Surrounding textures are nice, too; a beat up old truck dashboard seen in one shot, old odds and ends around the house, the dusty and dented (and melted?) television set, and leaves and grasses and other vegetations seen in exterior shots all look quite good. Colors are balanced and satisfying, not at all brilliant but not really worn down, either. Blacks are fine and flesh tones never too rosy or, on the other end of the spectrum, ghastly. The print shows a little wear and tear, some minor pops and speckles and scratches but nothing too terribly detrimental to the experience. This is a pretty solid Blu-ray picture from start to finish.


TerrorVision / The Video Dead Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

TerrorVision
Score: 3.0/5


TerrorVision features a decent DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless soundtrack. Music delivery is generally robust and with a positive low end -- including a rather nice thumping in the "pleasure room" as heard in chapter five -- but it's also mostly front heavy with negligible surround support. Still, the presentation is satisfying, particularly the film's theme song that plays over the opening titles. Various sound effects are delivered adequately, whether beams of energy, monster growls, or gunfire. Dialogue remains front-center focused and clear; there is some slight echoing in the "outdoor" soundstage scenes. Overall, this is a rather basic track, not particularly memorable but certainly adequate for the film's needs.

The Video Dead
Score: 2.0/5


The Video Dead arrives on Blu-ray with a flat and rather featureless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless soundtrack. The primary culprit here is dialogue. Shallow, muddled, detached, quiet: name it, it probably applies. It's just strong and clear enough to get listeners through the movie, but clarity is certainly not this track's strong suit. Musical delivery is largely centered and lacking in range; neither general score nor Rock tunes find much stage presence beyond the center, and all music lacks verve. There is fair woodland ambience in chapter eight, noted primarily in quiet, dialogue-free moments, but the effect largely remains property of the front speakers. A few heavier sound effects -- a whirring blender, a spinning chainsaw -- sound rather mushy and indistinct. A dynamic track this is not, but it handles the basics just well enough to get listeners through the film, nothing more and nothing less. Note: 'The Video Dead' was originally released with a monaural soundtrack; the DTS-HD MA 2.0 lossless soundtrack will offer a presentation more faithful to the original.
