Zombie Flesh Eaters Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Lucio Fulci's Zombie Flesh Eaters arrives on Bluray courtesy of British distributors Arrow Video.

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

"Zombie Flesh Eaters has been exclusively by Arrow for this release, with all work personally overseen by Restoration Supervisor James White at Deluxe Soho, London.

The film was sourced from the original Techniscope 2-perf 35mm negative made available by Variety Communications, Italy. The pictures was scanned at 2K resolution and fully graded on a Nicoda Film Master at Deluxe Soho, London. Restoration work was completed in 1080Psf HD resolution using a combination of software tools and techniques. Thousands of instances of dirt, scratches and debris were carefully removed frame by frame. Damaged or missing frames were repaired, and density and stability issues were significantly improved. Throughout the process, care was taken to ensure that the film's original details and grain structure remained unaffected by digital processing. Although every effort has been made to present Zombie Flesh Eaters at the highest quality possible, some minor picture issues remain, in keeping with the condition of the original materials.

Both the original English and Italian mono soundtracks were restored, with audio issues such as bumps, clicks or dropouts removed or repaired. Audio sync to picture remains noticeably loose at times, in keeping with the nature of the film's production.

Lastly, working from the original 2-perf negative has allowed for access to the entire exposed image area of the film, so we have chosen to retain as much of the original frame are possible for this restoration."

Restoration supervisor: James White.
Audio mastering: Gary Sanders/Deluxe 142."

The new restoration of Lucio Fulci's legendary film is easily the best presentation of a classic European horror film that I have seen on Blu-ray to date. Depth and detail here really are quite impressive, with many close-ups from the daylight sequences looking particularly strong (see screencapture #3). The footage from the zombie attack during the final third of the film also boasts very pleasing clarity, with contrast in particular remaining notably stable. Color reproduction also does not disappoint. There are some minor fluctuations depending on where and how parts of the film were shot (color tonality during the underwater sequence, for example, is slightly different), but color stability and density are very good. The best news, however, is that there are no traces of post production degraining. Naturally, a light layer of grain is retained throughout the entire film, ensuring plenty of depth and strong detail (compare screencapture #19 to screencapture #17 from the U.S. review of the film). There are no traces of sharpening corrections either. Lastly, large damage marks, debris, cuts, and specks have been removed as best as possible. All in all, excluding some extremely minor inherited limitations, such as those observed during the underwater sequence, this is clearly the most satisfying presentation of Zombie Flesh Eaters accomplished to date. (Note: This is a Region-B "locked" Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you must have a native Region-B or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).


Zombie Flesh Eaters Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There are two audio tracks on this Blu-ray disc: English LPCM 2.0 and Italian LPCM 2.0. For the record, Arrow Video have provided optional English SDH (for the English track) and English (for the Italian track) subtitles.

The English track is very good. It has pleasing depth, a good range of dynamics, and absolutely no background hiss. Fabio Frizzi and Giorgio Tucci's fantastic soundtrack, in particular, benefits a great deal, with the keyboard theme now sounding very lush and well rounded. The dialog is stable and clean. Obviously, because some overdubbing was done after the film was completed, some minor sync issues are noticeable at times, but it is important to remember that they are part of the film's final cut. For the record, there are no audio dropouts or distortions to report in this review.
