The Dead

 (2010)

The Dead Blu-ray offers decent video and solid audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Following at first the journey of Lt. Brian Murphy, wanting nothing more than to return home from a zombie outbreak stricken Africa, then Murphy and Sgt. Daniel Dembele, the latter trying to find his son, this is a quest film as much as horror, the journey as important as the grue.

For more about The Dead and the The Dead Blu-ray release, see the The Dead Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Starring: Rob Freeman, Prince David Oseia
Directors: Jonathan Ford, Howard J. Ford

The Dead Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

The Dead's 1080p, 1.78:1-framed Blu-ray transfer is fair but uneven. The picture strives to deliver a gritty, sun-scorched image that reflects both the environment and the sense of death and decay within it. Director of Photography Jon Ford has succeed, but the end result is a transfer that won't spring immediately to mind as one of the format's best. The image is hot, with colors primarily of the warm earthen variety. There's very little vibrancy, though objects like a worn out white vehicle hold up nicely amidst the surrounding harshness. Still, there are some soft, blurry shots mixed in. Fine detail is fair; facial textures are often complex, as is the rust, dents, scratches, and overall wear on the aforementioned vehicle. The dusty African terrain looks fairy good, too. Grain is present, but appears frozen in place in several scenes. Blacks are very deep, yielding a bit of crush, while also showcasing some heavy noise in the film's darkest scenes. Edge halos are occasionally evident, too. On the flip side, banding and blocking are largely absent. The Dead's transfer is more effective than it is stable and pretty; the gritty look helps the movie, but in this case doesn't translate extremely well to Blu-ray.


The Dead Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Dead's Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless soundtrack fares a slight bit better than its high definition video counterpart. The track offers fair ambience. Gusty winds never sound quite precise, but screaming people, distant pops of gunfire, and natural environmental atmospherics are handled rather well and play from anywhere and everywhere around the soundstage. Music is adequately spaced and plays with admirable clarity. Bass often plays as a series of deep vibrations rather than tight, looming lows. Gunfire in the middle of the action isn't to the level of perfectly engineered Action films, but the track gets the point across. The chaotic opening sequence inside the doomed plane offers a jumble of sound that drowns out dialogue, but the spoken word -- which is far from prevalent in the movie -- is generally clear. This isn't a memorable soundtrack, but it's efficient and sufficient for the sort of material it supports.
