The Funhouse

 (1981)

The Funhouse Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

The carnival is a place for fun and laughter, but not for Amy and her friends. When their childish dare to stay all night in the spooky funhouse backfires, it leaves a trail of dismembered teenagers a mile long in Tobe Hooper’s classic video nasty era slasher.

For more about The Funhouse and the The Funhouse Blu-ray release, see the The Funhouse Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Elizabeth Berridge, Shawn Carson, Jeanne Austin, Jack McDermott, Cooper Huckabee, Largo Woodruff
Director: Tobe Hooper

The Funhouse Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Funhouse arrives on Blu-ray from Shout! Factory's new Scream! Factory label. The result is very impressive 1080p high definition transfer. Presented in its original widescreen aspect ratio, the movie looks fantastic, generally, offering very crisp, film-like details. Grain remains throughout and solidifies a pleasant, natural filmic texture. There are plenty of softer shots scattered throughout -- some blurry edges and a few smudgy details -- but it's clear that this is The Funhouse as it was intended to be seen. The image's crisp elements truly impress with natural, well-defined objects such as clothing, the Frankenstein mask, wear and tear around the carnival, and complex facial textures. Colors are largely fantastic, with oftentimes brilliant splashes to be seen all over the carnival, from bright yellows to vibrant blues. Flesh tones are accurate, and blacks are acceptable, though perhaps a little pale in places throughout what is a fairly dark movie. The image sees a few scattered white speckles and a couple of random vertical lines, but on the whole this is a very well balanced and authentic 1080p transfer of an old favorite looking better than ever on home video.


The Funhouse Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Funhouse features a wonderful DTS-HD MA 5.1 lossless soundtrack. From the great opening title music forward, this audio presentation impresses at worst and dazzles at best. That opening music plays with a big, well-spaced, and completely immersive sensation, offering precision clarity and the feel of a live performance. The carnival atmosphere proves most sonically impressive; the listener often feels completely immersed within the environment, enjoying the din of games and barkers and music scattered amongst general crowd ambience. Such scenes make use of the entire soundstage and prove enjoyable and critical both in pulling the audience into the movie and establishing the environment to enhance the terror that comes later. There are some very big, potent, and spooky sound effects -- such as booming thunder -- to be a heard during the haunted house ride. Bass is deep and aggressive but not overly so. Various mechanical sounds near the end nicely fill the soundstage and play with an evident and crucial surround element. Dialogue is clear and accurate, though microphone dialogue playing through carnival speakers comes through with an understandable, and even welcome in the name of authenticity, muffle. Overall, this is a fantastic soundtrack that serves the movie and the audience both very well.
