Default The Mad Magician 3D

I'm looking through the Playstation Store on my PS3 to see what 3D content they have and found The Mad Magician starring Vincent Price. You can't rent it; the only option is to buy for $29.99. Thought I would share.

Yep, I'm tempted --
But it doesn't look William Castle-ish enough to get it (if Castle DID do a 3D for Columbia, this would be it, but it isn't), and if I'd spend $29.99 on anything at PS Store, it'd be the Stooges short. And not for $29.99.

A taste of YouTube, though, in the meantime:

Interesting. This sounds like an online 3D exclusive for now. I don't see it anywhere else so far. Nice to see an older film converted to 3D.

29.99 is steep for online only. Especially an older classic film. The 3D looks good though...

I wish this would come to Blu-Ray. The Mad Magician is not a conversion - it was filmed in 3D back in the day, following the success of Price's House Of Wax.

That Stooges short has been on the PS3 for a year or so. The other Stooges 3D short which was supposed to be spooky was for some reason removed from the PS3 Store. I rented TMM and it had good depth and has the fast pop outs that don't register that well. It also had a lot of ghosting on my then Samsung C8000 PDP.

William Castle did make a 3D movie for Columbia, but it was a 1953 western called "Fort Ti". One of the Stooges' 3D shorts played on the same bill in theaters.

Default Not one of Price's better films

The Mad Magician is ok for what it is, Columbia's attempt to re-create Warner Brothers' success with House of Wax with the same star (Vincent Price) and the same gimmick (3-D).Its plot is a bit dull (another Price revenge vehicle, which he did so much better in Theatre of Blood and the two Dr. Phibes films, and this one lacks the color of House of Wax. In fact, the whole film comes across as rather cheap. Still if it were released in Blu Ray 3D, I would probably pick it up for old time's sake.
