As Scream Factory continues to mine the Universal library, they’ve offered another of
John Carpenter’s ’80s films.
As noted in an earlier review, he’s a wonderful filmmaker who can move readily between big budget, beautifully produced films, and B level fare.
This is another of the Bs.
I’m presuming for Carpenter completists, it’s a beautiful image harvest, and a quality 4k release. I’m just not understanding the 4k rationale for this one, as there’s little truly 4k about it. Everything is fine, with a track upgraded to Dolby Atmos.
Image – 5
Audio – 5 (Dolby Atmos)
Pass / Fail – Pass
Upgrade from Blu-ray – Yes
