Default 'Revenge Of The Creature' Coming In August!! BUT........

it's in anaglyph 3D and it is a German release (as of now). Not sure if it's region free or not.

Anaglyph basically means they've used old elements from the 70s, which could be either a bad 35mm negative or even one of the 16mm negatives and that no restoration work has likely been done on it. Since no proper 3D release is coming any time soon, this may be your only chance at an HD release, that is unless the Germans are upconverting a VHS copy or something, which can't be ruled out, until it is, of course.

Anaglyph are the headache causing red/blu glasses. Was that how the original was made?

No, it was filmed in real 3D and shown in polarized 3D in the 50s. In the early 70s, it was re-released to theaters in anaglyph, due to theaters being cheap. There were reportedly a lot of technical issues with the shoot, which is why some people think it won't ever get a proper 3D restoration.

I believe anaglyphic 3D can be effective in black and white films, but the biggest problem I see with it is that the two videos need to be properly re-aligned, to make anaglyph a good fit. In many cases, anaglyph ghosts a lot more, when the left and right image is aligned the same way as it is for polarized (or active) viewing. Too much viewing of anaglyphic materials will start to make you see things kind of strange, when the glasses are off. It's a temporary issue though. I use anaglyph glasses when editing 3D material myself, even when the final product is going to be SBS, as I don't have a proper ($$$$) 3D editing workstation.
