Vampyres Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Blue Underground and Vampyres fans will want to sink their fangs into this good-looking 1080p, 1.85:1-framed transfer. Though it's a bit rough around the edges and not without its faults, Blue Underground has nevertheless delivered another high quality and, more importantly, film-like transfer of an aging low budget movie. Despite some washed-out blacks, slight artifacting, errant speckles, a touch of softness, and an oftentimes painfully flat appearance, Vampyres looks awfully good for what it is. The transfer retains a fairly heavy layer of film grain which seems to vanish only in several shots. Not exactly a vibrant image, what colors there are -- green vegetation mostly -- appear rather dull, though seemingly as part of what appears to be less-than-stellar film stock used to shoot this low-budget motion picture. The level of fine detail often fluctuates but as a general rule strikes the viewer as more impressive than not; the dull color palette and generally dreary tone don't help matters, but there's a fair amount of clarity and visible detailing on clothing, furnishings, and the like, but outdoor vegetation often suffers from a clumpy look that's not unsightly but isn't as sharp and detailed as other objects found throughout the movie. Additionally, flesh tones remain consistently neutral throughout, here extending from head to toe and not limited to faces. Overall, Vamyres will probably never look at that much better than it does here; Blue Underground's transfer seems faithful to the source and should satisfy fans of low budget exploitative cinema.


Vampyres Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  2.5 of 5

Vampyres arrives on Blu-ray with a serviceable trio of soundtracks, a 7.1-channel DTS lossless mix, a Dolby Digital 5.1 EX lossy presentation, and a Dolby Digital 1.0 track. The DTS mix proves far richer and fuller than the original 1.0 mono track; it enjoys a more spacious and robust feel over the film's opening title sequence, which proves to be just about the most sonically-engaging part of the film. The DTS track spreads things out to each channel, but most of the rest of the movie is presented with minimal sound effects and is certainly a front-heavy presentation. There's a good, haunting support structure to be heard in some of the interior castle scenes; a constant low humming that seems evenly spread about the room and plays as somewhat convincing adds a nice amount of atmosphere to several scenes. However, outdoor ambience is limited and not particularly engulfing or convincing, though several rolls of thunder and light falling rain occasionally make for a halfway pleasurable and realistic environment. Dialogue reproduction is steady throughout. Vampyres may not make for a stellar track, but Blue Underground's presentation acquits itself well enough given the film's age and low budget.
