New to Blu: October 25 – 31

Ash vs Evil Dead: The Complete Second Season’s 1080p transfer fares well on Blu-ray,” Blu-ray.com said.

The digitally photographed show is a little smooth and clean, but never to the detriment of colour or detail. Textural abundance is commonplace, with practical (mixed in with some digital as necessary) effects leading the way. Ripped flesh, exposed innards, sticky and lumpy creatures, there’s nothing the track doesn’t reveal in practically all its gross-out glory.

“It’s dripping with fine crimson and excellent detail,” The Digital Bits said.

The colour palette is slightly more varied than the previous season, but natural skin tones remain. Blacks are inky deep with excellent shadow detail, while brightness and contrast levels are virtually perfect. The CGI from the previous season is integrated a tad better this time around, using even less of it.

“English 7.1 Dolby TrueHD is the featured audio for the 10 episodes on this release,” DVD Talk said.

The audio mixes for each episode have a lot of fun. There is plenty of surround activity, with things springing to life on one speaker or another, as well as an abundance ambient sounds, all of which often provide for an immersive feel to the presentation. Dialogue is clear throughout.
