The Town That Dreaded Sundown Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Town That Dreaded Sundown is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of Shout! Factory with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.40:1. This film basically disappeared for years, and the good news is that the elements utilized for this transfer are in mostly excellent shape, with only occasional white specks and a few flecks of dirt cropping up from time to time. The basic image is decently sharp, though viewers will need to understand the low budget filming conditions coming into this enterprise and not be expecting the pristine digital look of a contemporary film. While there doesn't appear to have been any egregious digital tweaking to the elements, which retain substantial amounts of grain, there are a couple of minor instances of ringing on display. Colors are accurate looking and nicely saturated. Contrast is generally good, though some of the actual nighttime footage (as opposed to filtered day for night sequences) suffer from minor crush.


The Town That Dreaded Sundown Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Town That Dreaded Sundown features a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio Mono mix delivered via a 2.0 mix. Fidelity is quite good, though the track is obviously narrow and shallow sounding. Dialogue is always easy to hear and both environmental sound effects and the rather good (and at times twangy) score also are also rendered faithfully.
