The Monster Squad Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in 1080p utilizing the AVC codec (at an average bitrate of 35Mbps), Monster Squad offers a surprisingly proficient visual experience on Blu-ray. I've grown accustomed to the weak offerings of cable television over the years, so watching Monster Squad in high definition seemed like a revelatory experience in comparison. Fine object detail is afforded a substantial upgrade over prior versions, with a tremendous boost in clarity during all but a handful of scenes. I was initially concerned about the improvements in quality throughout the opening title sequence, but by the time Frankenstein's crate plunged into the pond, I recognized just how impressive the experience could be. Adding to the strength of the visuals, the color spectrum absolutely pops off the screen, and contrast rarely exhibits a shred of weakness. Unfortunately, one occasional flaw rears its ugly head on several occasions. The effect I'm referring to are sections or bands of blurring across the top or bottom of the picture. The first obvious example occurs at the 19:48 mark, as Sean's father stands by the open front door. His face almost appears as if two images are superimposed upon one another, but offset enough to obscure the clarity of the image. The same effect occurs again at the 29:32 mark, where a different father mistakenly misses a mummy in his son's closet. Thankfully, the problem doesn't occur frequently enough to downgrade the overall experience, but it's worth pointing out as a flaw on an otherwise impressive presentation.


The Monster Squad Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Given the age of the film I didn't expect an overly bombastic audio experience, but the lossless mix still retains the original cheesy feel of the source material, while managing to up the ante a notch or two. To clarify, you'll notice the same front-heavy directionality of prior releases, but a noticeable step up in the clarity of the various elements in the mix. Dialogue is well-defined, environmental effects are crisp, and the classic 80's soundtrack is afforded a subtle boost in dynamics. Present-day films have naturally achieved a higher standard of sound design, but there's something nostalgic about revisiting a film that never intended to take itself seriously in the first place. Out of the various elements in the lossless track, the one disappointment that stands out is the lack of muscle in the LFE segment. There's no shortage of opportunity for the bass elements to shine, but I rarely noticed a great deal of activity emanating from my subwoofer. Anyone expecting demo-worthy material from Monster Squad might find themselves slightly disappointed, but long-time fans will have little to complain about in the audio presentation on the disc.
