    I'll post just one more, from Blu-ray.com, but there are legions more examples of people having ghosting problems with DIAL M FOR MURDER specifically. Something went wrong somewhere with this release.

    Yes, I did have the ghosting problem, and I don't think it's my (active) tv. I very rarely have ghosting or crosstalk issues. Again, it didn't ruin my enjoyment of the movie, but I am a little apprehensive about a (hopefully)
    future release of House of Wax.

    Nothing went wrong with this release. It's your given display. See this post for details:
    http://www.hometheaterforum.com/topic/321465-a-few-words-aboutâ„¢-top-gun-3d-in-blu-ray/?p=3929177

    Or pick up the new Spears and Munsil Bluray test disc which also has 3D test patterns if you need further confirmation.

    There is no ghosting on my Mitsubishi DLP display. But that's a given. :)

    If there's no problem with this release, then WHY do so many only have ghosting with this release and not others?

    And if CREATURE looks great on my setup, how would high contrast, objects placed in Z space, etc. have any bearing on DIAL M? The ENTIRE THING looks like ghosted garbage, whereas CREATURE, which has scenes of high contrast and much deeper, more effective use of 3D throughout, looked absolutely great.

    I just watched this on Friday for the third time and saw no ghosting whatsoever. None. Nada. Zip. Zero. Not a single frame. And I apparently am hardly the only one.

    It's not just a problem with DIAL M. I don't know if you've seen it yourself, but HUGO has ghosting just as bad on my active plasma, but less frequently.

    If your TV/Projector is compatible, you might want to invest in some RF glasses rather than IR too. They are more effective at eliminating ghosting.

    That's the type of display I used for my reviewOf Dial M 3D. No issues on my end either.

    On my Sony KDL55NX810 I did notice some ghosting in certain scenes especially at the end of HUGO but, most of it is eliminated on my Panasonic AE8000U front projector.

    I noted ghosting on HUGO as well, but chalked it up to the combination of my plasma display and extreme contrast elements (bright lights on dark backgrounds, which are prevalent in scenes of Hugo's living quarters and the areas behind the clocks).

    I went to their web site and its $35.99. It's not listed under their 40% off list.
