The Prowler Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

The Prowler stalks Blu-ray with a 1080p, 1.85:1-framed transfer that's, for the most part, nicely realized. Though Blue Underground's transfer is clearly rough around its edges -- this is no The International or Chloe in terms of brilliant and faultless modern day photography translated seamlessly to Blu-ray -- it's hard to ask for much more, all things considered, of a low-budget Horror movie that's pushing 30 years of age. The image is certainly grainy with some accompanying noise in tow, and there's some random speckles, pops, debris, and other assorted maladies that creep into frame from time to time, though they're rarely to the detriment of the viewing experience. The image is certainly not vibrant but it's nevertheless easy on the eyes, despite a somewhat bland and toned down color palette and plenty of dark locales. Black levels sometimes look a bit too bright and sometimes a bit too dark, but never does the transfer fall towards one extreme or the other. Details are adequate at best; faces look flat and absent much definition, and the same may be said of just about any object in any frame throughout the movie. There's definitely a boost in clarity and resolution here over standard definition material, but again, The Prowler is only going to look so good. Aside from some minor banding and blooming, there's not much more room for complaint. Blue Underground's transfer isn't a revelation, but it's a quality offering in its own right.


The Prowler Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

The Prowler slashes onto Blu-ray with a DTS-HD MA 7.1 lossless soundtrack as the primary sonic weapon of choice. Despite the "7.1" presentation, there's little to the track that extends beyond the primary front three channels. Music is usually spaced well across the front; what it lacks in absolute clarity and definition it makes up for in effort, and the music accompanying the final minutes of the film somehow seems a bit more aggressive and potent than anything that comes before it. Dialogue is usually strong and crisp, with only a few instances of it coming across as muffled. Ambience is limited to the front; there's not much here that's convincing or audibly enthralling, but the track creates the sort of atmosphere that sets a mood and defines a place but doesn't do so with absolute realism and attention to detail in mind. Sound effects, too, are lacking in space, power, and precision, but several play as particularly messy and indistinct, notably those accompanying a pool attack scene in chapter 13. The low end is rarely put to use outside of a couple of musical selections that are pretty much the only element in the track that provide even a hint that the .1 channel is indeed a part of this presentation. The Prowler isn't a feast for the ears, but never does it drop below the point that its soundtrack becomes an ear sore.
