The Taint

 (2010)

The Taint Blu-ray offers solid video and mediocre audio, but overall it's a disappointing Blu-ray release

The water is tainted. THE TAINT poisons the minds of men. It turns them into raging misogynists: monsters who want nothing more than to KILL WOMEN. When society is transformed into a land of sadistic violence and horrible brutality, it is up to Phil OʼGinny and his female friend, Misandra, to combat the horrible evil that is "THE TAINT".

For more about The Taint and the The Taint Blu-ray release, see the The Taint Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 1.5 out of 5.

Starring: Drew Bolduc, Colleen Walsh, Cody Crenshaw
Directors: Drew Bolduc, Dan Nelson

The Taint Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Is it part of The Taint and Troma's supposedly intentional irony that this film is released in 720p? With an AVC encode and a 1.78:1 aspect ratio, The Taint looks about like what you would expect a low budget outing like this to. Detail is fair to middling, with only extreme close-ups (of which there are quite a few) offering excellent fine object detail. Colors are nicely robust, and the guts, gore and blood look nicely saturated. There are some persistent contrast issues throughout this presentation, though my hunch is Bolduc and Nelson intentionally (or mistakenly) pushed contrast in a lot of the outdoor scenes, leading to a kind of effulgent glow around objects and a fairly aggressive obliteration of fine detail. Still, there are moments when this presentation looks well above average in terms of sharpness and clarity, which, depending on your point of view, will either be a very good or very bad thing.


The Taint Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

The Taint features a standard lossy Dolby Digital 2.0 track that suffices most of the time, but which is hobbled by what appears to have been on the fly recording as the film was actually being shot. That means levels vary hugely. While most of the characters are fairly easy to hear, often people in the background or on the far sides of the frame are virtually inaudible. Also, Bolduc's rather good synth-driven score is mixed way too loudly at times, drowning out dialogue. Fidelity is okay, nothing more or less, and dynamic range, while delivered in a lossy environment, is rather wide.
