The Horror Show

 (1989)

The Horror Show Blu-ray offers decent video and great audio, but overall it's a poor Blu-ray release

Detective Lucas McCarthy finally apprehends "Meat Cleaver Max" and watches the electric chair execution from the audience. But killing Max Jenke only elevated him to another level of reality. Now Lucas' family is under attack, his sanity in question, and his house haunted. Aided by a disreputable college professor, can Lucas reclaim his mind, house, and family?

For more about The Horror Show and the The Horror Show Blu-ray release, see the The Horror Show Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.0 out of 5.

Starring: Lance Henriksen, Brion James, Dedee Pfeiffer, Aron Eisenberg, Lawrence Tierney, Terry Alexander
Director: James Isaac

The Horror Show Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

The Horror Show is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Scream Factory, an imprint of Shout! Factory, with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.85:1. This is a rare misfire by Shout!, which has done generally stellar work with any number of cult items over the past couple of years. Undoubtedly some of what troubles this transfer is inherent in the elements— things like scratches and other damage—but there are also compression artifacts as well as what I would term an overly processed looking image. Contrast and black levels are spotty at best (see screenshot 2), and fine detail rarely rises much above minimally acceptable levels, though occasionally in extreme close-ups finally registers relatively well (again, see screenshot 2). The general softness here is attributable to the source elements, but while this high definition presentation isn't horrible, it's also not very good.


The Horror Show Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Horror Show's lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 mix is a much better experience than the generally lackluster looking video element. Dialogue is cleanly presented and the film's score also sounds fine. The mix isn't quite as bombastic as some horror films tend to be, and that ironically may help this relatively narrow affair to sound better.
