The Theatre Bizarre

 (2011)

The Theatre Bizarre Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Down a seedy city street in her neighborhood, young Enola Penny is obsessed with what appears to be a long abandoned theatre. One night, she sees that the front door is slightly ajar and impulsively decides to sneak inside. But there in the dark, decrepit auditorium, a show unlike any other unfolds before her eyes. Its host is an eerie human puppet named Peg Poett who will introduce Penny to six tales of the bizarre ...

The Theatre Bizarre Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Four cinematographers are credited for the various segments of The Theatre Bizarre, but they all used Red One cameras, which, despite a wide variety of styles, palettes and production designs, have yielded a consistently superior result for Image Entertainment's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray. After post-production on a digital intermediate, the Blu-ray is equally adept at providing the unrelentingly dark corners and deep shadows of "Vision Stains" and the overlit, candy-colored surfaces of "Sweets" (much of which is garishly lit to look like a commercial). The image easily shifts between the naturalistic French countryside in "The Mother of Toads" to its nightmare world of fog and enchantment (and other things) conjured up by the mystic reptiles. Throughout, the image is clear, sharp and finely detailed, except where it has been deliberately softened or obscured for effect (e.g., to help "sell" certain makeup illusions). As is typically the case with projects finished on a DI, the Blu-ray appears to have been sourced from digital files.

With no extras, despite jacket copy claiming otherwise (see below), the 114-minute film fits onto a BD-25, but just barely. The average bitrate of 19.99 Mbps would seem anemic, but it's acceptable given the letterbox bars on the 2.39:1 image and the fact that Red footage is easily compressible.


The Theatre Bizarre Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The film's original 5.1 soundtrack is presented as DTS-HD MA 5.1, and it's quite good considering the film's limited budget. The toads in "The Mother of Toads" are intimidating as they surround their victims. Nightmare screams in "Wet Dreams" and other sounds that I can't characterize without spoilers have a piercing impact. In "The Accident", the sounds of the mother and daughter's bedtime conversations mix subtly with the child's memory of sounds from their roadside encounter. The writer's recovered memories in "Vision Stains" are accompanied by memorable rushes and cacophonies of overlapping sounds. All of this is delivered with clarity and a wide dynamic range that also serves the scores by composers Simon Boswell (Tin Man), Susan DiBona, Pierre Marchand (a frequent collaborator with Sarah McLachlan) and Mark Raskin (Plague Town).
