    The quality of these tapes were so poor, MCA/Universal did a recall. In the early 80's I found a video store that had a betamax original of CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON. Because of the recall, the store had a no-return clause on this given tape. I in turn asked to view some of the tape before I purchased. Because I was still under 18 at the time, they had to throw a sheet over the porn tapes in the back room so I could preview it on their only television. :3dglasses:

    I still have it and ICFOS. Not only is alignment bad throughout, red/cyan anaglyph is what I call a very fragile 3-D format, meaning any deterioration in the color drastically degrades the 3-D experience. And VHS and Beta degraded color considerably more than today's digital video formats. Any movie currently on DVD in red/cyan anaglyph will look miles better than what these anaglyphic 3-D videotapes look like. Not to mention (outside of the 3-D) the overall picture quality is awful.

    My two cents: Wait for Universal to release proper elements, as these tapes offer only the very slightest glimpse of the original 3-D quality.

    Universal has complete left/right elements, so a 3-D bluray is possible.

    I hope you're right. I can't imagine why they're taking so long.

    It has had an official 3D release on DVD.
    Does anybody have it or at least seen it?

    Maybe Universal wants to include it in another Monster/Sci-Fi box set.

    There have been lots of bootleg DVD's of this and CREATURE from those old anaglyph tapes.
    The 3D is passable, but of course nothing like the originals and now happily our official CREACH 3D release.

    I do so hope we'll see IT CAME and possibly REVENGE officially released in 3D at some point.

    As long as Dial M, House of Wax, Man In the Dark, Creature, etc. sell well there is a possibility other 1950's titles will be released by someone.

    That cover with it's UNIVERSAL Logos all over it completely fooled me.
    Looks as if the lowlife responsible put a bit of misguided effort into it.
    Although the back cover does look a bit amateurish.

    I never touch bootlegs so I'm unaware of that Jerk.
