This list is a partner piece to my revisitation of all of the classic Universal Monster movies. It is not…
Third Dimensional Murder
A 3-D short subject in which the narrator goes to a creepy old house in search of his missing aunt. There he encounters the Frankenstein monster, a witch, a wooden Indian who comes to life, and assorted other monsters and frightening characters, all of whom manage to throw something toward the camera.

This is a pretty shitty 3-D horror-comedy short. Some of the jokes were funny in a groan-y sort of way (my favorite kind of funny, really) and the atmosphere is nice if you're into quaint Halloween-style stuff but the 3D effects in the print I saw were terrible and executed in the clumsiest, silliest ways possible.
I'm being a little loose on my definition of "classic" - this is basically a list of films I saw…
