The Monster Squad Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Monster Squad is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Olive Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.36:1. If I had the ability to grade in quarter points, I'd probably give this a 3.75 rather than 3.5, for it's a generally nice looking high definition presentation that is only occasionally hobbled by some fuzziness and lack of fine detail. While the elements here occasionally look just slightly faded, overall the colors are wonderfully robust and well saturated. I frankly never owned the Lionsgate release, but from a cursory comparison of the screenshots it looks like the Olive release boasts better overall clarity as well as a generally brighter ambience. Neither of the video anomalies which my colleague Dustin Somner mentioned in his review of the Lionsgate version is evident in this new transfer (though the first issue, which actually is a few seconds past where Dustin marked it as occurring on the Lionsgate version) appears to my eyes to perhaps have been nothing other than slightly mispulled deep focus).


The Monster Squad Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

The Monster Squad features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 mix which may frustrate some audiophiles, since Lionsgate's Blu-ray featured a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix. (This brings up another corollary element to these licensing deals—frequently the preexisting audio mixes are not licensable and distributors like Olive need to craft their own new ones.) Why Olive chose not to offer a surround mix since one would assume there were multichannel source elements available is anyone's guess, but as far as it goes, this stereo mix presents everything with decent enough fidelity, if an obvious narrowness that also suffers slightly from a lack of depth on the low end. Dialogue is always well prioritized and easy to hear and the film's many foley effects generally sound fairly crisp and effective.
