Blood Relic DVD Review

Hop To

by AVForums Jun 29, 2006

    SRP: £15.99

    Picture

    Presented in fullscreen 1.33:1 format, this low budgeter looks like it's blown up 35mm, and the result is pretty ropey although acceptable for the format. Picture is soft, although colours are even and well presented. Although there's grain, there's not the abundance of digital artefacts I was expecting, which is a pleasant surprise. The best transfer in the world couldn't stop this form looking so cheap and nasty though.

    Sound

    Sound is offered through a Dolby Digital 2.0 track which is clear and well mixed, although the films indie roots mean there's not a great deal to work with here. Like the picture, it does what it can with a shoestring representation, and the result is decidedly average.

    Extras

    There's a couple of trailers for some other low budget tat, but that's it

    Verdict

    A majorly low budget piece of banal indie horror, this by-the-numbers slasher is probably only watchable for real connoisseurs of the genre who will be more forgiving of its amateurish approach that your average movie fan. Not recommended unless you fit that criteria and have a severely low quality control threshold.
