The Boston Strangler

 (1968)

The Boston Strangler Blu-ray offers solid video and superb audio in this overall recommended Blu-ray release

In 1962, elderly women are being strangled to death in their homes in the metropolitan Boston area. Panic starts to ensue not only in the general population, but also within the police forces in the Boston area, they who start to apprehend and question every known sexual criminal. Based on the true story, the film follows the investigators path through several leads before introducing the Strangler as a character. It is seen almost exclusively from the point of view of the investigators who have very few clues to build a case upon...

The Boston Strangler Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Richard Fleischer's The Boston Strangler arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of French label Carlotta Films.

The high-definition transfer is pleasing, but it is somewhat inconsistent. Where there is plenty of light, detail and clarity are typically very good (see screencapture #5). However, there are small portions of the film where depth isn't overly impressive. Shadow definition, in particular, lacks the type of sharpness one would expect to see from a strong high-definition transfer (see screencapture #13). On the other hand, the film does have stable organic look. There are no traces of excessive degraining. Also, heavy noise does not overwhelm the grain. Edge-enhancement is also not a serious issue of concern. Generally speaking, colors are stable and natural, but saturation could be more convincing. Lastly, there are no serious stability issues to report in this review. Also, there are a few minor flecks that pop up here and there, but large debris, cuts, or damage marks are nowhere to be seen. All in all, the Blu-ray release clearly represents a good upgrade in quality over the old R1 DVD release Twentieth Century Fox produced some years ago. However, I feel that there is still room for some minor improvements. (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).


The Boston Strangler Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There are two standard audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 and French DTS-HD Master Audio 1.0. For the record, Carlotta Films have provided optional French subtitles for the main feature. When turned on, they split the image frame and the black bar below it.

The lossless English track represents a major step up in quality. The sound is unquestionably clearer and sharper. This is very easy to hear if one compares the footage with the split screens. Here the sound effects are better isolated. The dialog is also crisper. There are no problematic distortions or audio dropouts.
