The Thompsons Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Thompsons was shot digitally with the Red system; the cinematography credit is shared between two young cinematographers, David Rom, who shot the initial U.S. sequences, and Matthew Cooke, who took over in the U.K., when Rom became unavailable. The image on ARC Entertainment's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray is generally consistent with Blu-rays from other Red-originated projects, in that it's sharp and detailed, has good depth of field and deep blacks, and reflects the generally bland color palette that is typical of Red productions except where someone has made a conscious choice to intensify and saturate colors in post-production. Obviously, no such choice was made here, where the gentle earth tones of the English countryside were intentionally a major element of the production design.

The single greatest flaw in the image is aliasing. This only occurs in a handful of shots, but it's substantial and noticeable when it appears, always on a horizontal surface reflecting light back to the camera. Whether this is an artifact from the initial capture, introduced at the digital intermediate stage or in connection with Blu-ray mastering is impossible to say, but it's surprising to see this kind of issue at this stage in the development of digital technology.


The Thompsons Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Despite being nominally a horror film, The Thompsons has a fairly restrained soundtrack, presented here in lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1. Though filled with gore effects, the film is largely dialogue-driven, and there's little of the elaborate sound-mixing that, say, Robert Rodriguez might bring to the party. The occasional voice or sound effect is placed off-screen in the surrounds, and the guttural, bestial roars of the vampires in their rampage mode are rendered with depth and intensity. The serviceable score is credited to Kevin Kerrigan, who is part of the team that worked on Michael Mann's Collateral. More memorable are some of the atmospheric rock tunes, especially those by a band called The Break Mission.
