both eyes out for 3-D horror film Scar to star Angela Bettis
both eyes out (3-D pun intended) for Angela Bettis starring
in the psychological horror film Scar. Shooting begins
Oct. 3 in Calgary under the helm of Jed Weintrob. Zack Ford
and Weintrob conceived the concept, with Ford penning the
Zack Ford's script follows Bettis' character Joan Burrows
who returns home for her niece Olympia's high school graduation
only to be confronted with her nightmarish past: at the age
of 16, Joan and her best friend were kidnapped and extensively
tortured by a serial killer named Ernie Parish. Joan managed
to escape and kill her captor, but after she returns home
for her niece's high-school graduation, it appears as though
he has somehow come back from the dead, intent on continuing
his macabre and deeply disturbing activities.
Scar will be shot with high-definition 3-D technology
as the first of a new crop of live-action, 3-D horror films
to begin production.

New 12"x18" 3-D Lenticular Posters
In commemoration of the release of the unaltered trilogy
on DVD, StarWarsShop.com has resurrected three iconic poster
images from the classic era to offer as stunning 12"x18"
lenticular prints! The lenticular process allows an image
to appear three-dimensional when tilted to the light.
Star Wars A New Hope
For A New Hope, artist Noriyoshi Ohrai's stunning
poster artwork for Japan's 1982 release has been reprinted
for the first time since its limited original run over two
decades ago. Star Wars poster aficionados recognize Ohrai's
work for his lush colors, meticulous detail and inspired use
of composition. This artwork, which showcases everyone's favorite
Corellian freighter among the heroes, villains and hardware
of Star Wars, has been given the lenticular 3-D treatment,
allowing the various elements to "float" over Ohrai's
brilliant nebulous backdrop.
The Empire Strikes Back
Ralph McQuarrie created this brilliant painting of
a pensive Yoda shortly after the release of The Empire
Strikes Back, which ultimately found its way onto the
1982 poster advertising the film's radio dramatization. Many
fans feel this artwork captures the Jedi Master most effectively,
appearing to commune with the Force which "surrounds
and penetrates" his Dagobah abode. Yoda, the creatures
around him, and the glowing hut in the distance all appear
to exist on different planes through the lenticular process,
a first for this stunning piece of artwork.
Return of the Jedi
One of the most sought-after Star Wars posters
by collectors is the painfully obscure Return of the Jedi
"Starfall" commemorative print published by Japan's
Yamakatsu company in 1983. This stunning artwork, executed
by Japan's premiere trilogy poster artist Noriyoshi Ohrai,
depicts the stalwart droids R2-D2 and C-3PO against a fiery
nebulous sky, flanked by the blaze of Jedi and Sith lightsabers.
Moreso than any other poster image, this one speaks to the
Star Wars saga as a whole, as the droids represent
the common thread throughout the six chapter story. The droids
and saber blades are brilliantly "lifted" from the
nebulous backdrop by the lenticular process, elevating the
visual appeal of Ohrai's artwork to new highs.
Limited to 1,000 pieces and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
The images pictured here are the prototypes. Each poster
is priced at $27.99. StarWarsShop.com is taking pre-orders
for the poster. The expected ship date is October 16.
These high quality 3-D lenticular posters were manufactured
by Mello Smello.

Padme Amidala 3-D Animation Lenticular Poster
Mello Smello impressed fans last year with their stunning
collection of large lenticular posters depicting dimensional
images of characters and scenes from both Revenge of the
Sith and the classic Star Wars trilogy.
Now, the Clone Wars animated series gets the same
treatment with an all new StarWarsShop-exclusive 3-D lenticular
poster that debuts a possible new series -- "snow-bunny"
Measuring a generous 12"x18" and limited to just
500 pieces, the Star Wars heroine sports one of the
most memorable costumes showcased in the series, flanked by
a lightsaber-wielding Yoda and the stalwart droid duo R2-D2
This is a StarWarsShop.com exclusive and is priced at $29.99.
There is an ordering limit of three per customer.

Shadows View-Master® reels (1969)
Dark Shadows View-Master® Reels weren't like
most View-Master® sets...as you can tell from the tag
line on the envelope, "WITH 16 PAGE FOLIO PRINTED IN
MANY SOMBER COLORS."
"Somber" is right: The reels and booklet summarize
the Dark Shadows storyline featuring Angelique as
a vampiress, Dr. Julia Hoffman, Barnabas Collins, Nicholas
Blair and the Frankenstein-and-Bride-inspired Adam and Eve.
The 3-D images are great, and the booklet also contains some
small drawings of key Dark Shadows characters. The
story (reprinted below) is fairly intense for kids, including
a lot of references to murder, Liz's obsessive fear of being
buried alive and Joe's suicide attempt. Surprisingly, also
included is the most controversial development in the Dark
Shadows storyline: Nicholas Blair's audience with Satan
in Hell. It's not exactly on par with the adventures of Strawberry
Shortcake or the Smurfs.
This GAF product first hit the market in 1969. Two variations
of the packaging exist: the one pictured here, and another
with the GAF logo much more prominently splashed across the
Following is the text from the View-Master® booklet:
Dark were the shifting shadows that waxed
and waned among the turrets and gables of the great house
of Collinwood. Darker still were the shadows that deepened
over the souls of those who dwelt within -- shadows of fear
and evil and despair...It was fear, and a desperate necessity,
that drove Barnabas Collins to leave the house in the dead
of night to make his way to a lonely dwelling by the sea.
Asleep in that house was Eve, a strange being whom he must
destroy before her evil genius could destroy Adam, her hapless
mate within whose man-made body pulsed the life-force of Barnabas
himself. He didn't know that behind this reasoning was Angelique,
who wanted Eve killed to thwart the warlock Nicholas, who
had great and terrible plans for Eve and Adam. As the curtain
lifts we see Barnabas stealthily approach Eve's bed, the lethal
hypodermic in his hand. Overcoming his revulsion, he steels
himself, flings back the covers...
1. An exclamation of dismay escaped Barnabas' lips.
The form beneath the covers was not Eve at all but an
artful dummy. He had been lured into a trap! But who...how...?
From the darkness came a low, mocking laugh and he whirled,
stared incredulously. "You!" he burst out,
his voice hoarse with sudden terror. "But I thought
you -- I thought Nicholas..."
Again came the laugh. "You though Nicholas had
destroyed me, Angelique, your old love. Well, he didn't.
At the last he let me live. And now, Barnabas...."
She moved a step toward him. He tried to recoil but
the heavy bed stopped him. "And now, this is what
The lovely lips parted in a smile and Barnabas froze
in horror. In her mouth were not ordinary teeth -- but
As the hypodermic clattered to the floor from his nerveless
fingers, Angelique lunged, clasped him in her arms and
he felt those wicked fangs pierce the flesh of his neck.
2. His strength ebbed, he staggered to a chair.
She knelt beside him, her hypnotic eyes fixing him.
"Now you are mine forever," she whispered.
"You can never escape me. Your will is now my will."
3. Every step a monumental labor, so weak had he
grown, Barnabas dragged himself back to the great house.
Awaiting him was Dr. Julia Hoffman, who had created
Adam by a series of transplants as part of Nicholas'
great experiment. With her was Prof. Stokes. All Barnabas
could tell them were the lies Angelique willed him to
voice. "I didn't do away with Eve," he panted.
"She wasn't there. Nobody was there. I searched
the house...no one."
4. But Adam was there in the house by the sea and
he had at that moment awakened to the touch of his master,
Nicholas Blair, who had sold his soul to Balberith,
a Prince of Darkness. He exclaimed as his eye caught
fresh fang marks on Adam's neck, identical with those
on Barnabas'. Also, Adam was strangely weak, just as
Barnabas was, and tormented by fear. His voice was a
whisper. "Nicholas -- something horrible has happened,
hasn't it --something to do with -- with Angelique?"
The handsome but sinister face of Nicholas was grim
as he got to his feet. "It has," he told the
frightened Adam. "But it won't happen again, I
promise you. Now go back to sleep; I'm going now to
have a word with -- with a certain woman, and take care
of the matter."
5. Confronting Angelique, Nicholas told her bluntly,
"You will have to
stop seeing Barnabas -- at once!"
"Stop seeing him!" She retorted. "But
I need him! You know that."
"Of course I know it. But I also know -- and so
will you if you try to recall -- what Eric Lang's tape
recorder message was." Her face told him that she
remembered. "Well, what he said was true. Just
now I found fang marks on Adam -- because of what you
did to Barnabas. I forbid you to hurt Adam again, so
you must find another to meet your -- your needs. When
nightfall comes again, summon Joe Haskell -- not Barnabas."
She sneered. "So you can have Joe's precious Maggie
Evens for yourself. You..." He glared her to silence.
6. That evening, Maggie found Joe at the Blue Whale
drinking despondently. They tried to talk, but the evil
shadow of Angelique was between them; and as night drew
near, Joe left the tavern and went to her against his
will. But, filled with her unholy craving for Barnabas,
she rejected Joe, taunting him with the mirrored scene
of Maggie in the arms of Nicholas. Maddened, he seized
a letter opener, plunged it into his chest and fell
lifeless to the floor.
The merciless Angelique thought only of getting rid
of the body. She needed help. "Barnabas!"
she whispered, knowing he must come in spite of himself.
7. Impelled to answer Angelique's summons,
Barnabas arrived to find her in a strange state of excitement,
and on the floor, the lifeless body of Joe Haskell,
who had been his rival for the frightening affections
of the woman in white. "Take him away!" she
Obeying, he caught sight of something that turned his
blood to ice water. There on the dead man's neck were
fresh marks like those on his own. Was it possible?
With Joe already dead, had ngelique...? His legs weak
with the horror of it, it was all he could do to stagger
out of the house with Joe in his arms.
1. As fate would have it, the next evening was the
time the mystery woman, Eve, chose to leave Adam's room
for the first time, in defiance of Nicholas' orders,
and on the terrace to encounter Jeff Clark. Recognition
dawned slowly then ecstatically. "Peter!"
she cried out, "Peter Bradford!"
Bewildered, he denied the name, but she insisted. "But
you _are_ Peter! My_ Peter Bradford -- but -- but I
saw you die! Long -- long ago --" A sob broke from
her and she ran from the terrace.
2. Bewildered, Eve fled back to Adam's room only
to find Nicholas awaiting her, demanding to know whom
she had seen that disturbed her. Her answer was confusing,
but it told him enough to know that Jeff Clark was involved.
Needing to know more, he mesmerized her to send her
back to her previous life nearly 200 years before.
"Fix your eyes on the candle," he commanded,
"and concentrate. You are moving back through the
years -- back --"
First Eve went limp, then she stiffened and cried out,
"Peter! I did it for us! For you and me I killed
Philip -- because he would have killed you! I swear
he would! Peter -- don't look at me that way -- don't
condemn me -- I tell you I had to do it! Peter -- "
3. Such was the force of Nicholas' mesmeric powers,
that, for a time, Eve lost all awareness of the present,
and returned completely to her previous existence in
colonial Collinsport, near the end of the 18th Century.
Reliving her tragic confrontation with Peter Bradford,
she cried out again and again under the merciless lash
of his anger at her slaying of Philip, who had tried
to come between them. In the end Peter had rejected
her utterly with the cruel words: "Get out of my
life and never return!"
But now Peter himself had returned! Watching her with
fascinated eyes Nicholas saw her suddenly snap out of
the trance, tears streaming from her eyes, murmuring,
"The man I saw tonight is Peter Bradford -- and
I love him!"
The working of implacable fate lay behind Eve's confrontation
with Jeff on the terrace. In the Collinsport of Colonial
days grim tragedy parted these star-crossed lovers at
the very foot of the hangman's scaffold. Jeff, whose
name in that earlier incarnation had been Peter Bradford,
saved Eve's life by confessing to a murder that she,
not he, had committed. Condemned to die on the scaffold,
Peter heroically rejected Eve's pleas to save himself
by surrendering his soul to the powers of witchcraft
which she herself had embraced long ago. Thus an innocent
man died in ignorance of the fact that Eve's powers
would work on him even in death and that the two of
them would meet again after long centuries had passed.
4. While Eve's retreat to the past was going on
at Blair House, fear permeated one of the rooms at Collinwood
like a tangible thing. Victoria Winters, trying to tell
Elizabeth Stoddard about her plans for marriage with
Jeff, found the older woman returning again and again
to the dread conviction that had been growing on her
for some time -- that her fate was to be buried alive.
Vicki's efforts to make light of this obsession met
with no success."It's no use talking," Elizabeth
insisted. "I can hear the spirits of the dead.
They say I will be among them, but -- but I will not
5. In another room of the great house, time was running
out for Joe Haskell who hadn't quite succeeded in killing
himself. Poison, however, had been poured into his medicine
by Harry Johnson, and now Barnabas, moving like a sleepwalker
at Angelique's command, was about to feed the
concoction to the helpless man. He was aware that he
was about to commit a murderous act but was unable to
At the ultimate moment chance intervened. Julia Hoffman,
seeking the Professor, burst into the room barely in
time to knock the spoon from Barnabas' hand.
6. Joe emerged at last, from his death-like sleep
just in time to hear Julia say that the medicine was
poisoned, and that Barnabas had tried to give it to
him. Enraged, Joe seized a cord, and prowled the darkness
until he found Barnabas dozing in a chair. Whipping
the cord around the defenseless neck, he jerked it tighter
-- tighter. Barnabas' eyes bulged -- the world turned
Again, fate took a hand in the form of a woman. Mrs.
Johnson appeared and, with a scream, hurled herself
on the panting Joe, and loosened his grip on the murderous
cord. Barnabas slid lifeless to the floor.
7. Roger Collins, hoping to talk Elizabeth
out of her obsessive determination to build a new, "safe"
mausoleum, went with her to the family crypt. Sounds
they heard there, interpreted by Elizabeth as spirit
voices, turned out to come from Joe, who had come there,
weak and terrified, to hide after his assault on Barnabas.
Roger, after calming his hysterical companion, carried
Joe back to the house.
1. With the setting of each day's sun Angelique
became bolder and more rebellious against her domination
by Nicholas. She would outwit him and make Barnabas
hers forever. Then he, too, would sleep in coffins by
day, and by night roam the world seeking...
Luring him to a secret cave by the sea, she bared her
fangs and grasped him in her terrible embrace, draining
his life essences almost to the last drop. When he recovered
enough to speak he panted, "You've gone too far.
I'm going to die -- I hope I die. And Nicholas -- Nicholas
will wreak a fearful vengeance on you."
I n reply she shrieked, "I defy him to do his
worst. And you -- You will not die. You will be mine
forever!" And with that she fled back to her crypt,
for day was near.
2. Though she defied him, Angelique did not deceive
Nicholas. Discovering that Adam had weakened to the
point of death, he knew that Angelique was endangering
the life of Barnabas and ruining his plans. For this
she must pay with her life -- and the only way to take
the life of a vampire was to drive a silver stake through
her breast as she lay sleeping in her crypt...
But when he arrived, armed with hammer and stake, Angelique's
coffin was empty! He trembled, aghast, for he knew why.
Balberith, his own master, had summoned her to the Netherworld,
and the outcome of that meeting could bode nothing but
ill for Nicholas because he had been outwitted by Angelique's
greed for Barnabas.
3. The evil miasma of the Netherworld curled around
the golden head of Angelique and the hooded figure spoke
in awesome tones: "My faithless servant Nicholas
has become enamored of a mortal female named Maggie,
while you, Angelique, have defied him. You shall be
rewarded -- and he
shall suffer a dreadful punishment!"
He paused while the screams of the damned swelled up
and then receded. Then he went on: "As your reward,
Angelique, I will remove the curse I put upon you --
and you shall return to human form!"
4. Only moments after the confrontation in the Netherworld,
Maggie Evans paid an unexpected call on Nicholas at
Blair House. She seemed confused, almost trance- like.
"What is it, Maggie?" he asked uneasily.
"Why did you come here?"
"I -- I don't know," she replied. "I
only know I had to come. Something made me -- some power
that --" Suddenly stark terror filled her eyes.
"Oh, Nicholas!" she gasped, "everything
is getting dark -- and I can't get my breath -- Oh,
Nicholas, help me!"
She reeled, staggered to the sofa, and collapsed. An
unearthly hum filled the room, the lights went dim...
5."Nicholas!" Every vestige of color drained
from Nicholas' face. His name had been called from the
throat of Maggie, but it was not Maggie's voice! It
was the voice of Balberith, and the room seemed to pulsate
with his unholy presence.
"Y--yes, Master," Nicholas quavered.
"Prepare to meet your judgment, Nicholas!"
Nicholas seized a chair to support his weight.
"J-judgment?" he moaned.
"Tomorrow you will appear before me. Prepare yourself."
6. With supreme effort Nicholas pulled himself together
after Maggie had gone. His fertile brain worked swiftly.
Balberith was calling him to account for letting Eve
die, and for other sins as well. With some kind of plan
perhaps he could stave off the utter destruction that
In a flash it came to him, and he dashed off to Collinwood
to find Julia Hoffman. It all depended on her. Not even
caring that Elizabeth was listening, he told her she
must repeat the experiment, infusing new life into the
dead Eve. Balberith needed Eve so that she and Adam
could start a new race of men who would be his servants.
Horrified, Julia refused, and Nicholas played his trump
card. "Very well, then I will take Adam's life."
Julia paled. "Then Barnabas too -- will die."His
answer was an evil smile.
She stared at him with revulsion, but at last she sighed
with resignation. "So be it. You may bring Eve's
body to my laboratory tonight."
7. Nicholas' hour had come. He stood
before Balberith in Limbo, pleading for one more chance.
If the experiment worked he could go on serving his
master in the human world -- and have Maggie besides.
His proposal met cosmic scorn. "I give no second
chance, Nicholas, as you did with Angelique. No -- you
will return here -- for eternity. But -- if the experiment
is successful you may bring the woman with you."
"Bring her! But that means she must die!"
"Of course! On the Black Altar!" The fiend's
laughter rose, filling the vast corridors of Limbo.
"Go, Nicholas -- go back to earth -- and prepare
your wedding plans!"
Roiling masses of fog billowed about the towers of
Collinwood as Nicholas returned, creating, even by day
-- dark shadows.

Here are a few 3-D auction results from the past month.
HAROLD LLOYD STEREO
The seller listed this as Harold Lloyd's
own 3-D stereo camera! The camera sold for $850 with
45 bids. This Stereo Realist is from the David White
company in Milwaukee Wisconsin S/N A7777. This marks
it as one of the earliest; and the seller speculated
it was a gift from the company to Mr. Lloyd, with Harold
Lloyd's name engraved on the bottom. From a Beverly
Hills camera collector.
