While 3D is typically associated these days with the current climate of supersized blockbusters, even if the effects warrant three-dimensions or not, it’s easy to forget that in the early ’80s, the format experienced a brief revival. “Jaws 3-D” and “Friday The 13th: Part III” were just a couple of movies that tried out 3D, but arguably the movie kicked off the resurgence was Ferdinando Baldi‘s perfectly titled “Comin’ At Ya!” Today we have a clip from newly restored picture.
The cult spaghetti western earned over the contemporary equivalent of $30 million when it was first released in 1981. Starring Tony Anthony, the movie follows a man who seeks vengeance on two brothers who kidnapped his bride during their wedding. In the scene below, the story goes to some hairy places, including a bat attack highlighting Baldi’s desire to make sure the audience had lots of things heading toward their face throughout the movie.
New restored into RealD digital format and 5.1 DD surround sound, “Comin’ At Ya!” hits Blu-ray in both 2D and 3D on January 26th. Watch below.
