The Lost Boy's (87) and Fright Night (85) on 4k!
Watched both of these over the weekend. If you're a horror movie fan you should definitely check these out. I'm guessing a lot of people on here have seen these (way back in the day). They are true 80's classic horror movies. They both got the 4k treatment and they both look and sound great! These are hands down the best versions to own. So, if you still have the VHS copies, it might be time to retire them and snag these on 4k!
Don't go into these movies looking for "demo" worthy material. PQ wise, everything just looked cleaned up. For being from the 80's, the grain level was pretty low, in my opinion. Skin tones in closeup shots were very good. They used some CGI effects in The Lost Boys which definitely is dated, but the makeup and practical effects were done well. Same with Fright Night. I don't recall really any CGI used and everything was practical.
SQ-The Lost Boys was just a 5.1 mix with moderate level bass. Fright Night though had an ATMOS mix and there was some serious bass for a couple of scenes. One scene in particular, Charley (main character) is hanging out in his room and Jerry (vampire) is heard jumping on charley's rooftop. When he did that my sub shook the house. It was so loud. The ATMOS effects during that scene were really good as well. I was quite surprised at how many overhead effects I was hearing throughout the movie.
Overall, if you're a fan of these types of movies, you'll really like the new 4k editions. Great picture, great sound, great 80's horror!
