    Id love a Scooby Doo, and Im 50!
    But it better have all character voices and clips or it will turn into a Jetsons. Nothing except a few Astro mumbles. Same thing thats happening to JJP pirates. Sure Jack is going to sell a few for excellent game play. However its only going to sell about as many as Hobbit, now where near the numbers as Woz like they were hoping.

    I see the first problem w/another Schwarzenegger pin. Arnold would want his head covering the entire translight.

    Reminder for new people to this thread... API is only doing unlicensed themes. So back to the topic.

    Tesla was a fantastic idea.

    Perhaps some movies that are well known but in the public domain:

    The Strange Cabinet of Dr Caligari
    Nosforatu
    Night of the Living Dead
    Little Shop of Horrors

    Or do a campy, comedy, original horror theme similar to AFM.

    Reminder for new people to this thread... API is only doing unlicensed themes.

    There's a TON of great stuff coming off copyright protection next year:

    Felix the Cat <--- potential to be a cool pin!
    Early Our Gang shorts
    Some Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin, and Harold Lloyd movies
    Shorts by Laurel and Hardy
    Bambi (the source book for Disney's movie)
    Some Agatha Christie books
    H.P. Lovecraft short stories like The Lurking Fear
    Cecil B Demille's The Ten Commandments

    Mickey Mouse of the Steamboat Willie era comes off protection in 2024. That will be BIG. Disney's going to have a coronary, unless they pay off congress to revise the copyright law for them AGAIN.

    Classic! Seems like such a no brainier for a pin years ago, hand drawn art, have lcd now, 4 zones on playfield to shoot one for each of the stalker fights, have a mech like the chair slide in the film that takes you to the game zone, chuck in some Arnie one liners and take my money!

    If, in fact they are only doing unlicensed themes, I'm afraid here is our answer for the odds of seeing a Running Man pin from AP:

    Illusion-O
    As with several of his more famous productions, Castle used a gimmick to promote the movie. For 13 Ghosts, audience members were given a choice: the "brave" ones could watch the movie and see the ghosts, while the apprehensive among them would be able to opt out of the horror and watch without the stress of having to see the ghosts. The choice came via the special viewer, supposedly "left by Dr. Zorba."

    In the theatres, most scenes were black and white, but scenes involving ghosts were shown in a "process" dubbed Illusion-O: the filmed elements of the actors and the sets — everything except the ghosts — had a blue filter applied to the footage, while the ghost elements had a red filter and were superimposed over the frame.[4] Audiences received viewers with red and blue cellophane filters. Unlike early 3D glasses where one eye is red and the other is cyan or blue, the Illusion-O viewer required people to look through a single color with both eyes. Choosing to look through the red filter intensified the images of the ghosts, while the blue filter "removed" them.[5] Despite Castle's claims to the contrary, not many heart failures or nervous breakdowns were averted by the Illusion-O process; although the blue filter did screen out the ghostly images, the ghosts were visible with the naked eye, without the red filter.

    Because the ghosts were indeed viewable by the naked eye, the movie was broadcast for years by television without a viewer needed to see the ghosts. DVD editions have varied in their preservation of the Illusion-O effect, with the first DVD release including versions with and without the ghost outlines and a set of special viewers. Later releases after the initial DVD release, such as Sony's The William Castle Film Collection and all DVD and Blu-ray releases from Mill Creek Entertainment are of the Illusion-O version, but do not include Ghost Viewers. Mill Creek has removed the "Use Viewer" and "Remove Viewer" on screen prompts from their releases of the film.

    That is what I saw when I was a kid. With the special viewer.

    Thank you Dennis !

    I saw it at the old Crest Theater in St. Louis but I do not remember the glasses. !3 Ghosts and the original House On Haunted Hill both gave me nightmares for months!

    Quoted from DennisDodel:

    I thought 13 Ghosts was funny.

    That canopy on the four poster be lowering and killing the person was great.

    Of course I was 6 years old.

    Quoted from DennisDodel:

    I do not remember the glasses.

    I might not be right. I remember them as one blue side and one red side, why I thought it was 3D.

    Unless I'm missing something, looks like game #2 was just confirmed in the Houdini thread.

    How cool is that?! Is it the style of viewer you remembered?

    #375 5 months ago
    Quoted from DennisDodel:

    Is it the style of viewer you remembered?

    Yes. I had one for a long time too. No idea what ever happened to it.

    I forgot that one part was to see ghosts and one part was to not see them. That is why I was thinking 3D. Because of the later red/blue 3D viewers.

    I found this William Castle introduction to the movie.

    Rollerball came out before Harry Potter or Hunger Games and murdering the other team was cool (and highly encouraged). Can't tell you how many times I imagined playing for James Caan's team.

    notice how they waited until I was about 3 shots of tequila in, before asking about game 2

    Im a Gin guy and the craft movement has brought us a long way now with tons of choices.
    If it was Petron Silver I completly understand, need to hit costco and re-up on that one.

    Back on point- Listing to your interview and passion, game 2 sounds like its going to be great. Fyi, its ok if there is 1 or 2 tight shots.

    For another great unlicensed theme can you guys consider a re-take on Truck stop

    A Cannonball run pinball would be very cool
