This 2017 Academy Award Nominee for Best Foreign Language Film offers scenic cinematography entirely filmed on a remote South Pacific island with an active volcano. Indie distributor Lightyear Entertainment does a solid job with this disc, cleanly presenting the movie as it was filmed. The movie itself is fictional but has been made by filmmakers with a background in documentaries, adding a touch of realism.
This isn’t picture-perfect digital video all the time. A few limitations of shooting on a remote island creep into the video on occasion. Its definition and clarity are both acceptable, a step below such nature videography as Planet Earth.

Bloodrunners is a low-budget, b-movie production about vampires in the Prohibition era. The digitally-shot video features consistent sharpness and appreciable detail. Its unfiltered transfer exhibits fine depth and fairly rich saturation.
The Blu-ray looks better than my low expectations going in, some care was taken to ensure Bloodrunners had competent video quality.
