Video: How Does The Disc Look?

These 1080p transfers really aren’t all that bad. The newest installment – Curse of Chucky – looks absolutely perfect in high-def, but even the low-rent early sequels to Child’s Play appear on Blu-ray with assured video quality. The first film manifests a few hiccups in terms of dirt and grime on its transfer print (Child’s Play 2 and 3 are also afflicted, but not as much), but compression artifacting is kept to a minimum. Detail quality isn’t perhaps pitch-perfect, but textures appear sharply and distinctly, and color accuracy is vividly maintained throughout. Bride and Seed of Chucky definitely come across with unnecessary aliasing and banding, though. These presentations are far from perfect, but they’re significantly more accomplished than I was expecting.  

Audio: How Does the Disc Sound?

Every film here gets a lossless mix, which is great, but unsurprisingly, the original and the later sequels are the films that sound best. Child’s Play 2 and 3 get DTS-HD 2.0 Master Audio sound presentations (they’re good, not great), but everything else gets a 5.1 boost. The newest Chucky flick utilizes its soundscape wonderfully, but the other movies here aren’t quite as adventurous. This doesn’t mean these tracks don’t do their jobs well, but horror fans might find themselves hoping for more in this department.
