A man tells his harrowing story of one evening at midnight being alerted by a telephone call from his Aunt Tilly in distress at the old deserted Smith mansion. The man drove the two hours to the isolated mansion to find that it was haunted by various creatures after him. As the movie viewers are wearing metroscopic glasses watching it in 3D, the man, as he relives the story, and thus the viewers by association, are bombarded by weapons coming right at them wielded by these various creatures. The question becomes how the man escapes and saves his aunt... if he does indeed. Written by
"Third Dimensional Murder" (aka "Murder in 3-D") is one of the shorts that Hollywood used to make to precede movies back in the day. This one is about a man who gets summoned to a castle which turns out to be the domain of all manner of scary things. I just saw it on TV and didn't have anaglyph glasses, so it looked a little odd, but that doesn't matter. It's a fun short, and the perfect movie to watch in October. I suspect that the witch with the spider looked pretty freaky in 3D, and the log must have made people jump.
The only movie that I saw in 3D in the theater was Steven Spielberg's "Adventures of Tintin". I wonder if any commercial movie will do it again.
