The Entity Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

The Entity haunts Blu-ray with a serviceable but forgettable and often disappointing high definition transfer. Nighttime and dark scenes suffer through some evident crush. Parts of the image appear a good deal soft, though others appear nearly razor-sharp. Some scenes look as if they've been somewhat scrubbed down, but others see light grain fluttering about the frame. Fine detail rarely impresses. The transfer yields detailing that's near the bottom of the acceptable level for a Blu-ray release, even for an aging catalogue title. The image is mostly flat and lifeless, never exploding off the screen and certainly never offering up sharp, well-defined details. Colors appear dim and slightly washed out. There's little vibrancy to the image. Granted, much of it takes place in lower-light levels, and those few times where it does go bright, it offers up a wider, more balanced color palette, the book store where Carla meets the paranormal academics being perhaps the best example, with that scene's brighter lighting and the multicolored book spines seen throughout the frame. The image does see a fairly steady stream of spots and pops, but they do not appear with so much frequency as to distract from the picture. It's clear that little effort was made for this Blu-ray release. That's a shame; the movie deserves better.


The Entity Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

The Entity spooks up a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless soundtrack that's effectively rattly but not all that sonically impressive. Music offers up a fair low end presence, but the midrange and highs lack precision clarity. The music is absolutely defined by the frightening, heavy, repetitive, shrieking, metallic, haunting, demonic refrain that accompanies the entity appearances and jolts the audience as much as the accompanying visuals. There's a definite lack of clarity to the refrain -- it's a bit mushy and rattly -- but in this case, the scraping, somewhat sloppy sound actually seems to enhance the element rather than detract from it. Light ambience and smaller sound effects are infrequent, but adequate, the best example being a ticking clock heard in otherwise quiet rooms. Louder effects -- most coming near the end of the film in the form of shattering glass and mechanical whirls and grinds -- are also absent crisp definition. Dialogue plays with reasonable definition and intelligibility, though it, too, succumbs to bouts of sonic sloppiness. Overall, a below-average track, bolstered by that sharp, scary refrain, yielding but a forgettable listen.
