Default We need more 3D HORROR!

Where are all the 3D horror releases this year? This sucks. last year we had some good ones, especially Texas Chainsaw 3D. IMO horror is a prime genre for 3D and I'm saddened by the fact that there don't seem to be many/ any 3D horror releases on the horizon. What's going on? I've got a handful of low budget 3D horrors so it's not as if film makers can't afford to put out a 3D horror movie. Especially one's that have studio money behind them.
"Still in all, every night we does the tell, so that we 'member who we was and where we came from... but most of all we 'members the man that finded us, him that came the salvage. And we lights the city, not just for him, but for all of them that are still out there. 'Cause we knows there come a night, when they sees the distant light, and they'll be comin' home."

This year I think there's only been Nurse, Argento's Dracula, Hellbenders, the 10 minute black and white sequence of the 2d Flesh and Blood Show and I Frankenstein.

The cinematography and 3D were great, the film wasn't unfortunately. I've now sold my copy on.

I'm still waiting for a Freddy's Dead single release in 3d as well... even if it is only for the last 10-15 minutes of the film. Hell Freddy's Dead and Friday the 13th Part 3 would make a great Bare bones Double Feature. (I'd prefer solo releases, but a 3D double feature of these 2 films at a budget $20 price might make more sense to Warner).
For Sale: Nothing at the moment.

I fear that the lack of horror films we are getting is another sign that this wave of 3D has passed its peak and I'm saying that as someone who likes 3D and who especially likes 3D horror. Both Nurse 3D and Argento's Dracula were shot a couple of years ago when 3D was at its height and they have been sitting on the shelf since then. I, Frankenstein is really more of another comic book film, so that leaves next to no proper 3D horror produced recently. There also don't seem to be any releases of vintage 3D films coming up from major studios, just a few niche titles from smaller outfits and quality 3D conversions of classics like The Wizard of Oz and Jurassic Park have also dried up.

I wish the upcoming 2014 The Evil Within had 3D in it. That movie was apparently based on a true story, and stars the guy who played the first Hulk movie with Jennifer Connelly. Forget his name at the moment. Bana is his last name I think.

I'd like to see the Exorcist in strong 3D maybe, though it's probably not a good idea to tamper with such a scary classic, though it would make it feel more real perhaps, and possibly scarier.

I think there may be smaller studio horror films that might have more horror 3D out there, but haven't had time to do any research on it. 3D costs twice as much time to produce, with twice as many assets and twice the amount of assembly, so it's a considerable investment to complete and arrange compared to a single movie file.

<One possible reason we're not seeing a lot of 3D horror, since horror movies generally generate fewer box office sales in main stream theaters.

I'm pretty sure there's going to be another Resident Evil as well as Texas CM and the Poltergeist remake is going stereoscopic I heard. The 50s Mad Magician may come out on Twilight Time. I'd really like to see a John Carpenter title as well as the Blob in 3d and a Columbia movie where the Torch Lady is zombified (love the Grudge 2, Zotz! and Strait Jacket torch lady versions).

Yes, Resident Evil 6 to conclude the series under Paul WS Anderson's control and starring Milla. After that, I'd guess they'll reboot the series.

Also - Parasite (another 80's 3D horror film with great 3D).

But if this is the case how come the majority of 3D horror movies i have are very low budget ones? How can they afford to shoot in 3D if it's so expensive? Julia X for example.

It's not massively more expensive to shoot a film in 3D, especially when shot digitally.

Have you actually seen the movie? There ARE FX shots and the movie actually doesn't look that cheap, it's really nicely shot.

Thanks for your answer Todd.

Amityville (which is a sequel to the 1979 original like Texas Chainsaw, not a remake) is definitely not in 3D unless they announce a conversion really soon. Shame though.

A serious rig, all the extra equipment, the team of technicians, and the post production costs to use 3D it is still pricy. Not to mention expected revenue streams for 3D productions that is only accessible to high concept larger budget studio movies. Theatrical, global 3D Blu-Ray distribution and the limited 3D TV network broadcast rights available, all things that are untouchable by independent producers mostly as far as it stands now.
Thanks for additional info tigermoth and for elaborating a bit more.
