The Red Menace

 (1949)

The Red Menace Blu-ray despite solid video and audio falls short as a Blu-ray release

The Red Menace Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Red Menace is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Olive Films with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.37:1. This was an ultra low budget film and it looks it. The elements here are in variable shape. The opening sequence, with Bill and Nina in the car, suffers from some damage running down the right side of the frame (you can just barely make it out in the first screenshot accompanying this review), but after that things improve markedly, with only occasional dots, specks and minor blemishes showing up from time to time. Contrast is weirdly variable, however. One scene between Molly and her mother has a master with blown out contrast, but every time coverage changes to a close-up of one of the characters, things once again improve markedly. Overall, this is an above average looking presentation that offers sufficient fine detail in close-ups, as well as a decent amount of clarity and sharpness. That said, things never really ever pop brilliantly in this presentation, most of which can probably be tied directly to the source elements.


The Red Menace Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Red Menace features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio Mono mix that ably supports this film's very modest sonic ambitions. The narration and dialogue are all cleanly presented, though there are a couple of very minor pops that show up on occasion. The film's amusing score (which starts out with a Volga Boatman sounding male chorus and ends with a rousing "My Country 'Tis of Thee", replete with stock footage of the Statue of Liberty) also sounds decently clear. There's an expected boxy sound to a lot of this track, with some clipping on the high end, but overall things are rather spry, considering the low budget and age of this feature.
