"Neither of these movies were shot in 3-D. None of the attempts to 'remaster' or 'convert' them into 3-D have been anything but annoying eye-strains.
Save your money, and avoid this DVD like the plague. It's another snake-oil-salesman attempt at cheating you out of your money.
Both of these movies are classic black & white horror and well worth watching, without the extra eye strain. Buy them in their normal DVD versions.
House On Haunted Hill can be found on DVD (ASIN: B0009X75DI), and it was also recently remade in 1999. You can even get both the classic old House On Haunted Hill (with Vincent Price) and it's new remake on a single double-sided DVD for the same price (ASIN: B000FOPPBU).
Night Of The Living Dead has also been remade (more than once) ... Most recently in 2006 and actually shot in real 3-D (not the fake '3-D' on this eye straining DVD). The original version of the movie is a classic, and you can find it on DVD (ASIN: B00005Y6Y2, and many others) in a clean new digital re-mastering, with extras. Or, you can buy it in a double feature DVD, along with Carnival Of Souls, another classic black & white horror movie, for double the enjoyment (ASIN: B00005Y6Y2).
The remake version of Night Of The Living Dead that was actually shot in 3-D (2006) isn't available yet on DVD, as I'm writing this review. So you may have to wait to watch it. Maybe they are waiting to release it on HD-DVD in anaglyph 3-D (red/cyan 3-D glasses), which is how it was seen it's official theatrical release. (Though, it did have it's premiere showing using nicer polarized projection at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood -- so a field sequential 3-D DVD release of the remake could be possible).
Which ever way you want to see these classic movies -- this fake 3-D DVD is the worst!"
