Powerhouse Films are looking into possible including Illusion-O Ghost Viewer
They said it will depend on the price to get them made

Note you can see or not see the ghosts with standard paper anaglyph 3D Glasses Red/Blue which can be got very cheaply if powerhouse don't include Illusion-O Ghost Viewer

VERY excited to get this! I love Castle's films and have many on dvd.
I was a hair's breadth away from ordering the Shout Blu of "The Tingler" when I saw this announced in an email from Zavvi.
Ordered!
Oh, and seeing the "Volume 1" on the slipband, is a lovely heads up as well...:happy:
