Forget donning a Jason or Michael Myers mask this Halloween. If you want a truly hair-raising holiday, try handing someone a pair of 3D glasses.
Currently, most 3D movie options fall into two categories: kiddie flicks and freak-shows. In other words, there should be enough scary movies available in the Blu-ray 3D format to make for one monster film festival.
Of course, most of these scary movies aren’t about ghouls and creatures of the night. Some don’t even care about the plot line. While there are a few frightening gems out there, most of the horror-themed 3D movies concentrate on a high kill count and special effects hurling at the screen. That said, we’re guessing that most of these will have you checking the locks, letting the phone go to voicemail, and staying away from the basement—unless that’s where the home theater is located, of course.
So before you blow through that stockpile of bite-sized Snickers, consider stocking up on some of these 3D-enhanced flicks for your own fright night. Enjoy!
