The Horror of 3D Films

Today in 1953, the horror film House of Wax premiered, the first 3D film with stereophonic sound. From Wikipedia: “Due to growing popularity of 3D and an increase in 3D screens, an increasing amount of newly released films have been screened in 3D. However, film industry observers have noted that 2011 has shown a considerable decline in audience interest in 3D presentation…. In view of this trend, there has been box office analysis concluding the implementation of 3D presentation is apparently backfiring by discouraging people from going to movie theatres at all. As Brandon Gray of Box Office Mojo notes, ‘In each case, 3D’s more-money-from-fewer-people approach has simply led to less money from even fewer people.'”
