Videodrome

 (1983)

Videodrome Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

When Max Renn goes looking for edgy new shows for his sleazy cable TV station, he stumbles across the pirate broadcast of a hyperviolent torture show called "Videodrome." As he struggles to unearth the origins of the program, he embarks on a hallucinatory journey into a shadow world of right-wing conspiracies, sadomasochistic sex games, and bodily transformation.

For more about Videodrome and the Videodrome Blu-ray release, see Videodrome Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: James Woods, Deborah Harry, Sonja Smits, Peter Dvorsky (I), Leslie Carlson, Jack Creley
Director: David Cronenberg

Videodrome Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, David Cronenberg's Videodrome arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Criterion.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"Supervised by cinematographer Mark Irwin and approved by director David Cronenberg, this high-definition digital transfer was created on a Spirit Datacine from a 35mm interpositive. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, scratches, splices, warps, jitter, and flicker were manually removed using the MTI's DRS system and Pixel Farm's PFClean system, while Digital Vision's DVNR system was used for small dirt, grain, and noise reduction."

Telecine supervisor: Maria Palazzola.
Telecine colorist: Gregg Garvin/Modern Videofilm, Los Angeles."

This is a good but slightly inconsistent high-definition transfer. Generally speaking, fine object detail is pleasing and clarity satisfying. The majority of the close-ups look very good - there is depth and good detail that is definitely missing on Criterion's SDVD release of Videodrome. Contrast levels are also improved. This being said, mild edge-enhancement and some light halo effects are occasionally easy to spot. Some small noise corrections have been applied as well. Regardless, the fine grain has been retained, and the overwhelming majority of Videodrome does have a satisfying organic look. Lastly, there are no serious stability issues. I also did not see any large damage marks, scratches, stains, or debris to report in this review. (Note: This is a Region-A "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-A or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Videodrome Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English LPCM 1.0. For the record, Criterion have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

The following text appears inside the booklet provided with this Blu-ray disc:

"The Monaural soundtrack was remastered at 24-bit from the 35mm magnetic tracks. Clicks, thumps, hiss, and hum were manually removed using Pro Tools HD. Crackle was attenuated using AudioCube's integrated audio workstation."

The English LPCM 1.0 track is solid. The dialog is crisp, clean, stable, and exceptionally easy to follow. There are no balance issues with Howard Shore's music score either. Understandably, the dynamic amplitude of the English LPCM 1.0 track is rather limited, but the sound has very pleasing depth and fluidity. For the record, I did not detect any audio distortions or dropouts to report in this review.
