Vampire Circus Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Vampire Circus -- Synapse Films' first Blu-ray release -- sports a good but occasionally underwhelming 1080p, 1.66:1-framed transfer that places small vertical black bars on either side of the 1.78:1 display. Though it's not as crisp or eye-catching as newer films boasting perfect Blu-ray transfers, Vampire Circus yields a charming, somewhat classic look that might be faded here and rough there, but that nevertheless seems rather faithful to the source. Blacks tend to be murky and problematic when in competition with foreground details, but general fine object detail -- the texture of the period clothing, the town's dirt terrain, or various woodland vegetation outside of town -- can be quite good. Colors are slightly faded but sturdy. A bit of grain is retained over the image, accompanied by some unwelcome but not particularly bothersome pops and scratches on the print, along with a slim white bar that's occasionally visible alongside the lefthand border of the 1.66 frame. Vampire Circus will never look like a 2010 new release, but Synapse's transfer is solid all around and should satisfy fans upgrading from lesser-quality media.


Vampire Circus Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Vampire Circus arrives on Blu-ray with a DTS-HD MA 2.0 lossless soundtrack; also available is a lossless 2.0 music and effects only track. The primary presentation is satisfactory but without much vigor or heft. Despite the 2.0 presentation, the track never feels particularly cramped, but it does lack the greater clarity and seamless spacing of better 5.1 mixes. Atmospherics are handled by the front, but various environmental ambience is nevertheless modestly but sufficiently implemented, helping to create a few viable but not-quite-immersive sonic segments. Music enjoys fair clarity and is without much in the way of heft, but again, the presentation is honest and fair considering the source. Dialogue, like most of the track, remains focused up the middle and never wants for greater clarity. All said this is an adequate track that's a suitable companion for the film.
