An ambitious and stylish action-horror hybrid featuring Japanese pop stars Gackt Camui and Hideto Takarai (aka Hyde) embarking in vampiric John Woo-style gunplay, Takahisa Zeze's Moon Child makes its stateside DVD debut courtesy of TLA Releasing. The picture is shown in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen, but the visual presentation leaves much to be desired. Though free of edge-enhancement, the disc is marred by constant artifacting -- with distracting, dancing pixels evident throughout (especially in the wildly unstable blacks). The already intentionally gritty cinematography is increasingly muddied as well, offering a washed-out image despite generally accurate skin tones and the occasional vibrant blast of color. The Dolby Digital Stereo audio track offers a bold mix with no discernible hiss or distortion. English subtitles are presented in easy-to-read white font with bold black outlines. As for extras, viewers can access a handful of stills from the feature in addition to four trailers (presented in non-anamorphic widescreen) for other TLA Releasing titles.
