    Wish i would have seen it in 82 on the big screen in 3-D, but didnt see it until many years later on video. It had some decent gore to it.. It had saint from frightmare and that runaways chick who later said in a recent interview that this was the biggest mistake she ever made? and a out of place dummy moore.. But is there any decent dvds of this one??

    I have the Cult Video version on DVD. It's a full frame video transfer, not too bad looking. I didn't hesitate to buy it mainly because of the Charles Band commentary noted on the back cover, but it's no where to be found on the dvd. I spoke with a Full Moon rep at a horror convention & he thought I was nuts when I said the commentary was noted on the case. I wished I brought the DVD along with me to prove it.

    Cheri Curie from the Runaways is in this too, correct? Anyway, I remember it as being pretty awful.

    Yeah, she's been through Hell and it shows. Her Neon Angel memoir was both riveting and depressing at times.

    Picked up the widescreen Anchor Bay dvd when Hollywood was closing a couple summers ago. Fun flick but nothing great.

    paff, read this review yesterday. good review.. there were a ton of 3-D movies between 1981 to 1983. after 83 3-d wouldnt hit theaters again until late 85's starchasher legend of orin. after that 3-D layed low until sept 13th 1991 with the little 3-D at the end of freddy's dead. which was that bad 3-D with the blue and red lenses. oh and there was i think one movie in 1984 that was in 3-D some horror movie that played in selected theaters.. forget the name of it now.. its in that slasher book... any help here.. about an escaped mental patient.
    some 3-d FLICKS. FROM 81 TO 83.
    treasures of the 4 crowns. metalstorm, spacehunter, the man who wasnt there.
    friday 3 , amityville 3, coming at ya. house of wax re-release. frankenstein, dial M for murder re-release.. and if iam missing any. let me know.. jaws 3-D

    The ones I remember seeing (in 3-D) from that era were Parasite, Friday the 13th Part 3, House of Wax, and Andy Warhol's Frankenstein.

    I saw Frankenstein in 3-D again back in 1999, when a local theater managed to find (what they said was) the last remaining 3-D print. Of course, after losing the use of my left eye last year, I'm done with 3-D movies permanently.

    :(

    Sorry to hear that Paff.

    I watched this for the first time back in June and enjoyed it. It's nothing great and could have used more creature action but I still had fun with it. Demi Moore was cute and Jeff Goldblum's doppelganger did a pretty decent job.

    A lot of 80s 3D movies had more depth than many modern ones, especially the ones that were converted from 2D to 3D without proper planning or effort. However, they were also more prone to parallax and alignment errors.

    I have the Anchor Bay release of this. I remember having a good time with it. Decent gore as well if I remember correctly.

    I remember this being THE movie to see amongst many 7th graders who looked at the newspaper ad with awe (myself included). We had a teacher that used to start Friday morning class by reading movie reviews to us from the newspaper. This was the most requested review the day it was released.
    I didn't see it until the VHS Wizard big box release and I was underwhelmed since the picture quality was so horrid.
    My friends got to see it paired with "Dead & Buried" at the discount theaters a few weeks after it was first released.

    I remember the commercials for this one on TV when I was 12 or 13. I was curious to see it but even at the time I thought it looked kind of bad, like the 3D was the only selling point. Still have never seen it, though I picked up the Anchor Bay disc for about $5 a few months back.
