The Mummy Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

It would be a mistake to accuse The Mummy's restoration and 1080p/AVC-encoded video transfer of foul play, especially if the accusation revolves around over-processing the original elements. The softness that graces the image is inherited and the restraint exhibited by the film's grain field isn't indicative of any invasive cleanup techniques or methodology, at least none that might be cause for alarm. Yes, the grain here is faint and largely unobtrusive, and yes, print damage and blemishes are almost non-existent. But fine detail flourishes (as in the creases and wrinkles in Karloff's monster makeup), edges are pleasing and almost always clean (with only a handful of halos to point to), and contrast and delineation are dead on. Black levels? Beautifully dark. Midtones? Lovely. The experience? Near perfect. There is some residual print flickering, but only a hint. I spotted a few instances of soupy surges of grain as well, but like every imperfection I encountered, it appears to be derived from the source elements. (And minimized most effectively, again without endangering filmmaker's intention.) I can't imagine The Mummy looking any better than it does here.


The Mummy Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Mummy's two-channel DTS-HD Master Audio Mono track is better than Frankenstein's problematic mix but not as sophisticated as Dracula's lossless audio. Dialogue is intelligible but often a touch muffled, voices aren't as clear as I had hoped, and a number of sound effects and music cues lack the clarity we've grown accustomed to from the best catalog classics on the market. Even so, none of it disappoints. If anything, it underwhelms, although even that strikes me as too misleading. The Mummy has a softer, lower noise floor than Dracula or Frankenstein, air hiss isn't an issue so much as it is an infrequent interruption, and the effects that seem subdued are more likely prioritized faithfully to a fault. Had Universal included a movie-specific restoration featurette with each Classic Monsters entry, fans would be able to understand the challenges the Mummy preservationists faced and more readily appreciate what they were able to accomplish.
