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 #73 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I like the movie reviews, and I like the equipment tests. I enjoy the interviews with manufacturers. I also feel that you are a good source for what is coming out next, trends etc. I think you dig a little deeper in your tests of equipment. Sometimes I have to read between the lines, and I know why you don't slam some company's gear. You have more interesting reading.
