I had a fun time in New Minas Tuesday night watching "Texas Chainsaw 3D".. i believe my first 3D movie as a kid was watching "Jaws 3D" with my father at the old Casino Theatre in Halifax. Good ol 3D sure disappeared for a long time and then made a big ol resurgence.. sad i was too young to see "Friday The 13th Part III in 3D" back in 1982.. eyeballs, firepokers and even popcorn was sailing off the screen in that one... the newest edition of the DVD is in 3D but there is alot of ghosting and double images...
How was Texas Chainsaw 3D? Surprisingly i liked it alot.. the 3D was top notch.. as good as watching Piranha 3D a few yrs ago at the Empire in New Minas. I also LOVED the fact that TCM 3-D picked up right after the events of the original 1974 Texas Chainsaw Massacre.. i do believe there were re-shoots on this new movie as there was no way that the Sawyer gal would just be in her mid 20s.. i think the movie was supposed to be taking place in the 90s.. but re-shoots adding a scene w/ a smart phone threw everything kind of off.. but the movie itself was fun and that was something that the 2003 remake and 2006 prequel were not.
So what i have added for your oh so ever viewing pleasure today is two trailers from back in the day... Youtube users have been converting movies into 3D on YouTube and they look fantastic.. so get a pair of the good ol red and blue 3-D shades out and check out some old school trailers on YouTube- one for 1982's Friday The 13th Part 3 in 3-D
