The Howling

 (1981)

The Howling Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Severely shaken after a near-fatal encounter with a serial killer, TV newscaster Karen White takes some much- needed time off. Hoping to conquer her inner demons, she heads for "the Colony," a secluded retreat where her new neighbors are just a tad too eager to make her feel at home. Also, there seems to be a bizarre link between her would-be attacker and this supposedly safe haven. And when, after nights of being tormented by savage shrieks and unearthly cries, Karen ventures into the forest to find answers, she makes a terrifying discovery. Now she must fight not only for her life... but for her very soul!

For more about The Howling and the The Howling Blu-ray release, see the The Howling Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

The Howling Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Joe Dante's The Howling arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of French distributors Studio Canal.

The high-definition transfer for The Howling appears to have been struck from a dated source, but despite some minor sharpening that is occasionally easy to spot on it, it actually looks quite good. Fine object detail, for example, is mostly pleasing. Clarity varies, particularly during the nighttime footage, but contrast levels are stable. Though mixed with noise, film grain is present. Some extremely mild edge-enhancement is easy to spot during a few outdoor scenes. However, I did not see any traces of heavy banding, macroblocking, or aliasing. Blown through a digital projector, The Howling remains stable. Generally speaking, the film's color-scheme is subdued, with blues, greens, browns and blacks looking soft and warm. For the record, I did not detect any large cuts, marks, stains, or scratches to report in this review. All in all, despite some of the limitations mentioned above, fans of this cult horror film should consider an upgrade if the price is right. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


The Howling Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There are four audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0, German: DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0, Spanish DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0, and French DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0. For the record, Studio Canal have provided optional French, Spanish, Dutch, and German subtitles for the main feature.

I was pleasantly surprised with the English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track. It has a wonderful dynamic amplitude and it truly gives The Howling a tremendous boost. Many of the random noises that could be heard throughout the film sound better than ever (shots, grows, etc). Additionally, the dialog is exceptionally crisp, clean and very easy to follow.

I quickly tested a couple of scenes with the French DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track, and while the dubbing is predictably inferior, the dynamic amplitude of the DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track appears to be as good as that of the English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track.
