Previously, during the two week long 3-D film festival at the Egyptian Theatre, I had the pleasure to watch Creature From The Black Lagoon, House Of Wax, It Came From Outer Space, The Mad Magician and Jaws 3-D. This past Saturday night, I completed my experience with the World 3-D Film Expo with a screening of Jack Arnold’s Revenge Of The Creature, the sequel to the Universal classic Creature From The Black Lagoon.
As with many of the other screenings, I got to see Revenge in the format it was intended to be seen in, dual 35 mm, in luscious 3-D. The film had some great 3-D gags, and some fantastic underwater sequences, and didn’t look much worse for wear in comparison with Joe Alves’ Jaws 3-D. In fact, after seeing them both in such a short time, I was startled by the similarity in the two movies (in the less heralded sequels, »

This past weekend, the World 3-D Film Expo wrapped up its third year at the Egyptian. As always, it was packed with golden age film luminaries, wonderful 3-D shorts, a bundle of nostalgia, all coming together with classic 3-D films made when the idea of 3-D didn’t make you shudder in terror.
What follows is an introspective on my experiences as well as a discussion of the films I saw. On this particular day, Friday the 13th, I was in store for two treasures: Jack Arnold’s It Came From Outer Space (1953) and Vincent Price in The Mad Magician (1954). It Came From Outer Space was one of four Arnold films screened for the Expo, along with Creature, Revenge Of The Creature, and The Glass Web

For the third year running, the World 3-D Film Expo has come to Hollywood, with 35 screenings of rare, classic 3-D prints spread out over two weeks at the resplendently restored and iconic Grauman’s Egyptian Theater.
This year, audiences are treated to a stellar lineup that includes House Of Wax, Creature From The Black Lagoon, Revenge Of The Creature, Jaws 3-D, Wings Of The Hawk, It Came From Outer Space, The Mad Magician, Robot Monster, Hondo, and many more.
The event began this past weekend, and I had the pleasure of being in attendance for a couple of the screenings. It was my first experience with the Expo, and it’s all been fantastic thus far. Over the next week, I’ll be discussing my experiences at the event (I’m attending four days), the movies, and the special guests in attendance (like The Julie Adams, Joe Alves, and Piper Laurie). In fact, »

Besides waiting for a favorite film to pop up on TV, what did movie buffs do before home video? That’s not a rhetorical question because I have the answer: Super-8 millimeter Films! I’m not talking about the kind our dads made of us on vacation in the 60’s and 70’s but the kind that were sold at stores and through mail-order that were condensed versions of popular feature films. Ken Films, Castle Films, and Blackhawk were just some of the distributors of these digest versions of famous movies. I remember the ads that ran in the back of “Famous Monsters of Filmland” magazine advertising mini horror films and I collected them as a kid. The 200 foot editions ran about eight minutes and the 50 footers just three and they were all silent. I have fond memories of my friends and I huddling in my basement watching Revenge Of The Creature »

Mockbusters were around way before The Asylum. The Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954) and its subsequent sequels Revenge of the Creature (1955) and finally The Creature Walks Among Us (1956) also had an illegitimate cousin.
In 1955 the crew who worked on Jack Arnold's sequel to the seminal Universal classic, entitled Revenge of the Creature, thought it would be fun to produce and shoot their own Creature spoof/knock-off at Florida's Marine Studios. The fruit of their labor was the little known and even littler seen Return of the Creature. The twenty-minute flick was shown at the wrap party for Revenge and never seen again.
Now, after 58 years of speculation as to whether or not this flick actually existed, a researcher named Tom Weaver has uncovered the long lost film, and there are plans to screen it at this year's Monster Bash in Pittsburgh, Pa.
Weaver explains to RoboJapan, "About 15 years ago, »
