I wanted to do something special for all my friends who give a hoot and actually check this thing out from time to time. I handed out a few "party favors" to a few folks that I could afford after my massive holiday cash hemorrhage Did you wonder what those anaglyphic, red and cyan branded 3D glasses were for? First of all, I thought everyone could use a new pair. Second, I wanted to create a novelty that spoke to what this blog is all about. It's pretty much a retro active itinerary for the horror movies and things you've missed throughout the years. Nothing other than VHS gives that same feeling as a nice pair of 3D glasses. If you have your own pair of cyan and red or blue and red glasses (blue over the right eye) then this will work for you, but not like the one of a kind Dr. Terror 3D Halloween glasses (yeah right).
The images you are about to see were converted into the third dimension myself except where noted. It's not always easy and everyone sees 3D differently. Also it's an older technology that has its own drawbacks. This is my first shot at turning movies into 3D images, but I'm fairly certain it won't be my last. These are movies that were not in 3D (or maybe they were in certain circumstances) but seemed like they might have been fun to see in 3D. I did not screen capture these myself but might do that in the future. Just thank your lucky stars I didn't try to create smell-o-vision cards ala Polyester. You might not make it out of this alive.
Some tips for viewing before you peruse this gallery:
1. Viewing distance is best from just around two feet from your computer screen.
2. The room you are in should be dark.
3. Double click the image to enlarge it. This might take you out of the browser or into a new tab, but, for the most part, the larger the image the better the 3D effect will work.
4. If you are getting some doubling effects try to adjust your eyes. It's also possible that we have different size heads and different facial measurements. Everyone's a unique snowflake.
5. Have fun. Show your friends. Get grossed out. Vomit frequently to avoid fainting.
ON WITH THE SHOW!!!

Some folks have taken some of the 3D horror films of old and posted scenes on YouTube which I've included here. Please enjoy. (some of these will require you to sit farther back if you enlarge them) I assure you that I do not currently have the capability to create 3D video and when I do all Hell will most certainly break loose.

Some folks view 3D as a gimmick to sell tickets at a higher price and it can most certainly be that. It also has its place in horror history and, when done well, can give us that extra jolt we've been looking for. I think that you'll be seeing more of these 3D blogs going forward for special occasions and hopefully we'll make some more fun things to give away to people like the 3D glasses created for this blog. I just think its something fun to hang on to. I know I like strange gimmicky marketing material/promo stuff/gifts.
Hope to have this in REAL 3D so you can steal the glasses from your local movie theater rather than recycling because we all know that recycling is the tool of the devil Consume!
