The Blood Trilogy Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

I was genuinely surprised by how great the "Blood" trilogy looks in its transition to high definition. Let's make one thing clear, though; there hasn't been much—if any—visible restoration work done to the prints, manually or digitally. Flurries of scratches and white specks, side-to-side jittering, hairs stuck in the gate, brightness flicking, color fluctuations, staining and streaks—all make frequent appearances here. Nonetheless, by the simple merit of being transferred into 1080p, the films look remarkably improved over DVD releases, let alone old VHS copies. I'm not going to say the films are ever sharp, but general clarity is enhanced and color looks fantastic, especially the sometimes literally eye-popping blood reds. It appears that there may be some softening due to light DNR—additional emphasis on light—but grain is still visible and there's no apparent edge enhancement or compression/encode issues. Minor color correction/balancing looks to be the only real digital work done here, and I think that was a smart move on the part of Something Weird Video. If we're being honest, the print damage adds to the low-budget griminess. I'm not sure I'd ever want to see a truly pristine Herschell Gordon Lewis film.


The Blood Trilogy Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

That said, I really wouldn't mind if someone took the time to clean up the soundtracks to these films. Even just a little bit. Because, honestly, they're pretty bad. Between the frequent muffling and crackles, pops and hisses, and sudden increases and decreases in volume, these uncompressed LPCM 2.0 mono mixes can get grating fast. To some extent it is what it is, but I'm sure something could've been done to even out the levels and remove some of the crinkles and tape hiss. Dialogue vacillates between sounding too far away and too bright and harsh—with occasional stretches where it's moderately acceptable—and needless to say, dynamics are flat and shifted toward the tinny end of the spectrum. On the plus side, the music sounds decent, especially the creepy organ score in Blood Feast—which Lewis composed himself—and the hillbilly banjo plinking and guitar strumming of Two-Thousand Maniacs. Unfortunately, there are no subtitle options whatsoever on the disc.
