The anamorphically enhanced black and white picture exhibits excellent gray scale quality, with a nice gradation between deep blacks and bright whites. Viewed in component video, images are sharp and detailed with nicely rendered background definition. Contrast and shadow delineation are effectively engaging as well. Minor artifacts are apparent, and, occasionally, film grain is revealed, but this classic horror flick will surely please due to its overall solid quality. The DVD measures 1.78:1, anamorphic and letterbox.
The DVD soundtrack is Dolby
Reason #44 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read WSR for several reasons. While sometimes I find it somewhat over-technical, the features I enjoy are always read. One Installerís Opinion and the DVD reviews are my favorites. The wrap-around glossy cover featuring the hottest movies; this mag is always a winner. I recently re-subscribed. Thanks.
