The Burning Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Note: It's site policy not to post overly graphic or gruesome screenshots, but I knew some would want at least one screenshot of Cropsy. I've placed a softer looking shot of him after the shot of the main menu for those who want to look.

The Burning is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Shout! Factory's imprint Scream Factory with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.85:1. The elements here are in very good shape, with only a couple of very minor blemishes and a scratch or two that turn up. This was never a fantastic looking film to begin with, and so the biggest upgrade here is in the much better saturated color, While close-ups are reasonably sharp looking, the film's many midrange and wide shots still have a pretty soft and fuzzy quality. Contrast is quite strong, however, providing the nighttime sequences with at the very least adequate shadow detail. Anyone who has seen previous home video iterations of The Burning will most likely be very pleased with this Blu-ray. Those expecting a pristine, contemporary looking outing will most likely not be. This score is based on the fact that this recreates the original look of the film quite faithfully and has not been overly manipulated, leaving film grain noticeably intact.


The Burning Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Burning features a DTS-HD Master Audio Mono track delivered via DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. Things sound really good here, albeit obviously very narrow. Dialogue (and screams) are presented with authority, and Wakeman's synth laden score comes through loud and clear. The film has fairly wide dynamic range which the DTS-HD Master Audio offering is able to support easily. Fidelity is excellent and there are no damage issues to report.
