Video: How Does the Disc Look?
Vampire Hunter's 2.40:1 1080p transfer seems faithful to its source material, but in terms of visual style, the movie is all over the place. Black levels are consistent and very inky, and the film's color palette feels accurately represented (although some blues and reds are overly-accented almost to the point of bleed), though detail quality isn't 100% as sharp as it should be - there's just a hint of smear in many of the film's sequences. Compression artifacting and haloing aren't major issues, though, which definitely helps. Again, it's probably an authentic presentation of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, but it won't blow your mind as a high-def spectacle.
Audio: How Does the Disc Sound?
The DTS-HD 7.1 Master Audio sound mix here, though, is top-shelf. Using every trick in the book in terms of dynamic presentation and surround exploitation, Vampire Hunter is a sensationally immersive experience in terms of its lossless sound track. Fidelity is widespread - high- and low-ends come across cleanly - and music and atmospherics swirl with striking prowess. It's loud, rowdy, and harrowing - in all the right ways.
French, Spanish, and English Descriptive 5.1 sound mixes are also included, as are English SDH and Spanish subtitles.
