The studio provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post.
The opinions I share are my own.


A strange twist of fate brings two young travelers, George (RAY LOVELOCK) and Edna (CHRISTINE GALBO), to a small town where an experimental agriculture machine may be bringing the dead back to life. As zombies infest the area and attack the living, a bull-headed detective (ARTHUR KENNEDY) thinks the couple are Satanists responsible for the local killings. George and Edna have to fight for their lives, and prove their innocence, as they try and stop the impending zombie apocalypse.



Not a whole of here, but there is the lenghty Mario Lanza: Singing to the Gods (58:29) featurette and the Theatrical Trailer (3:00).


VIDEO – 4½/5, AUDIO – 4¼/5

Warner Brothers releases The Great Caruso onto Blu-ray presented with a 1.37 full frame aspect ratio and given a new 1080p high-definition transfer. This is another (at least near) homerun from Warner’s Archive Collection, detail is sharp and well defined and colors are bright, vibrant and nicely balanced throughout. The transfer looks near pristine, not obvious dust marks or scratches.

The disc includes the standard, for older releases, DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 Mono track. This one is pretty impressive given the amount of music and singing there is, the depth for a singular channel isn’t half bad and dialogue does come across with fine clarity.




Check out some more 1080p screen caps by going to page 2. Please note, these do contain spoilers.
