The ABCs of Death Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

The ABCs of Death's 1080p/AVC-encoded Blu-ray presentation is as hit-or-miss as the individual entries. It looks like all of the shorts were shot digitally, but the cameras used vary greatly in picture quality, from shaky head-mounted GoPro action cams to prosumer HDSLRs to the Red Epic shooting in glorious 120fps slow motion. So, no, this isn't your latest demo disc. Still, the level of detail that's generally inherent in the image leaves a clear imperative to see the anthology in high definition instead of on DVD. The shorts shot on higher-end cameras definitely look it, with crisp lines and textures, better color grading, and more balanced and consistent contrast, but even at their fuzziest and most shoddily graded—Ti West's M is for Miscarriage seems weirdly soft—none of the lower-quality shorts look harsh or overly mushy. Noise is quite heavy in some of the pieces, and on a larger screen you will notice semi-frequent compression/sensor artifacts—banding, pixelation, aliasing, etc.—but nothing terribly distracting. This is one of those "it is what it is" releases, and for the most part, it looks fine.


The ABCs of Death Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Likewise, the quality of the movie's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track varies depending on the sound design and mastering of each short. Most were clearly recorded with quality gear, while a few others seem lo-fi, bordering on amateurish. By and large, though, the audio is functional and easy on the ears, if never especially noteworthy. Dialogue is always nicely balanced—you'll be hearing English, Spanish, Japanese, Thai, French, and probably a few others I'm forgetting—and when the shorts use music, it's usually rich and spread throughout the soundfield. Otherwise, the surround speakers don't seem to get a whole lot of use, with only occasional cross-channel effects and quiet ambience. What you will hear frequently is the low rumble of your subwoofer, which pulses and roars to emphasize the more horrifying scenes. The disc includes optional English SDH and Spanish subtitles, and defaults to English subs for the sections in other languages, although you can turn these off too if you'd like.
