The Pete Walker Collection Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

I would do separate video write-ups for each film in The Pete Walker Collection, but I'd end up repeating myself a lot. With small variations in picture quality, these four movies look quite similar on their dual-layer 50 GB Blu-ray discs, each given a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer, newly remastered from original 35mm negatives. Die Screaming and House of Whipcord are approximately in 1.66:1, The Comeback is in 1.85:1, and Schizo is in 1.78:1. Like most other Kino/Redemption releases, these films are essentially presented as is—that is, there's been no significant digital cleanup of the source materials—so you will notice intermittent flurries of white and black specks, slight color and brightness fluctuations, small scratches, and rare frame jittering, although none of these age-related issues are ever particularly distracting. (The first three films in the set are about equal when it comes to the amount of debris, while The Comeback is comparatively clean.) Thankfully, a layer of film grain is always visible—though it does spike quite harshly in Schizo, especially early in the film—and there are no signs of adverse noise reduction, edge enhancement, or compression problems. Clarity is variable—more because of poor focusing than anything else—but seeing these movies in high definition for the first time is a pleasure, with tighter texture reproduction and more detail all-around. Color is nicely rendered too; minus the occasional flickering, tones are stable and dense, and although black levels occasionally crush shadow detail in Whipcord, this is probably unavoidable. Basically, watching the films on a large enough screen is a nice approximation of seeing some loveably worn-out prints projected in person. Could they be tidied up? Sure, but the "defects" are all part of the period, low-budget charm.


The Pete Walker Collection Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Each film in the set has been given an uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0 stereo track. Like the picture quality, there are definitely some age/source-related quirks to contend with—slight hisses, light crackles, some occasional muffling—although none that compromise the viewing experience. I suspect the films sound as good here as they probably can or ever will, and considering their age and low-budget nature, they're relatively clean and dynamically full. Dialogue is just about always easy to understand, the musical scores zag and stab and soar with sufficient force, and the goofy incidental pop tunes in The Comeback are period perfect. The one shortcoming here—and this crops up in many Kino/Redemption releases—is that there are no subtitle options for those who might need or want them. Not even English.
