I know the 3rd film has a lot of detractors, but I saw it in the theater when it was first released, and it was amazing in 3D, esp when the windows blow out and the shards of glass start flying at your face. Of course, I was only 9 years old at the time and haven't seen it since, so who knows if it'll live up to the hype. But I'm contemplating getting myself a 3D TV now :)
it's pretty good. I would say it's a average horror film , not a great one. The best movie is the second one. But it's in 3d! and looks pretty good , there are other great movies on 3d out there , which is another reason to get a 3d tv. 'house of wax' is out from 1953. it looks great, however both of these movies were shot on old style film so don't expect a modern 3d experience. the depth is there but the picture is not like a modern 3d film that looks really sharp. that angers some people. but that's what old film is like! you may see sometimes a doubling or lines of color , made because blu rays are digital and not film. but it's still got the depth. creature from the black lagoon" is also out on 3d blu ray. and many other titles from recent movies. they say passive glasses have less problems with the occasional lines and ghosting. that is in many 3d films on blu ray. ghosting is when a image seems to have a second image like a ghost coming from it. this happens in some films on blu ray. so a tv that uses passive glasses is one to get. active glasses are powered glasses and almost as good. I would say that most 3d films that are shot in 3d look very good , older ones though do have some ghosting due to that old style of film. but it depends , creature has one scene of ghosting. house of wax has many scenes. that is also due to the way they restored the film , it was in bad shape and they had other problems. but it's not bad. usually the ghost is in a background object! 'dial m for murder' is the opposite. the front objects ghost a lot. but on a passive glasses tv that is far less.
