Zombie Lake

 (1981)

Zombie Lake Blu-ray offers solid video and decent audio, but overall it's a mediocre Blu-ray release

In a small village, somewhere in France, German soldiers, killed and thrown into the lake by the Resistance during WW II, come back.

For more about Zombie Lake and the Zombie Lake Blu-ray release, see Zombie Lake Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.5 out of 5.

Zombie Lake Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Like most of the Kino/Redemption titles released thus far, Zombie Lake is essentially presented "as-is," with a 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer of an archival negative that hasn't been digitally cleaned up or significantly doctored in any way beyond—presumably—some light color correction. This means you'll notice some semi-frequent specks, light scratches, and small bits of debris, but considering the film's age, budget, and reputation, the damage here is quite minimal. I've previously seen Zombie Lake on VHS and DVD—some might say that's two times too many—and now seeing it resurrected on Blu-ray is a revelation in clarity. The 35mm photography resolves nicely in high definition, allowing for sharper lines and more detailed textures, most noticeably in the atrocious zombie makeup. Color seems accurate too, with good image density and contrast. Of course, the upside of an "as-is" transfer for a film like this is twofold: 1.) the picture is untouched by digital noise reduction and edge enhancement, and 2.) you feel like you're sitting in some dingy grindhouse theater, watching a naturally battered 35mm print. I don't know if I'd want a spotless version of Zombie Lake.


Zombie Lake Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Kino/Redemption have given us two audio options for Zombie Lake, the original French track and an English dub, both presented in uncompressed Linear PCM 2.0. Now, I'm typically an advocate for listening to a film in its original language, but I can't say that it matters much here; the film was shot silently, and all sound was dubbed in later, so both tracks have a boxy, artificial quality, and even the French lip-syncing is slightly off at times. So pick whichever you'd like. There are some small differences in the two tracks, though. Flipping back and forth between them, I noticed a few instances where a line would be spoken in French, but there would be silence in the English track, despite the subtitles still showing up. There are also some tonal discrepancies, with the music in the French track sounding a bit more muffled and lowered than in the English mix, where it's brighter and cleaner. In both, high-end sounds can get somewhat peaky and harsh, but that's not exactly unexpected for a film of this caliber. At the very least, both of these tracks are functional, and free of any significant hisses, heavy clicks, or dropouts. The disc includes optional English subtitles in easy-to-read white lettering.
