Burbank, CA – SlingShot Entertainment, the leading supplier of large format films on DVD, offers thrills and chills in another dimension this October with the release of four large format films. Originally seen in IMAX® theaters, the films include Ultimate G’s, Encounter in the Third Dimension starring Elvira - Mistress of the Dark, Alien Adventure and Haunted Castle, featuring the voice of Harry Shearer. All four carry a suggested retail price of $19.99.

Also available is the Ultimate 3D Collection featuring Encounter in the Third Dimension, Alien Adventure and Haunted Castle plus a 3D Home Theater 3D-viewing system including two pairs of shutter glasses, a video synchronization box, RCA video extension, power supply, and instruction manual. This collection has a suggested retail price of $99.99 and will be available the first week of November.

Encounter in the Third Dimension is a groundbreaking venture into the realm of 3D filmmaking where captivating computer-generated imagery mixes with live action. It features Elvira – Mistress of the Dark as well as Stuart Pankin and highlights early incarnations of 3D through the most modern creations such as James Cameron’s theme park attraction, Terminator 2:3D.

A young musician is summoned to his mother’s castle in accordance with her final wishes in Haunted Castle. Upon his arrival, the castle begins to come alive as materializing spirits lead him to Mr. D (voiced by Harry Shearer), who makes the young man a tantalizing offer, the same offer that his mother accepted over twenty years earlier: surrender your soul in exchange for fame and fortune.

Alien Adventure follows a group of aliens as they head toward planet Earth in hope of establishing a new home for their people. Little do they know they’re in for the ride of their lives when they land in the middle of "Adventure Planet," a new high tech amusement park not yet open to the public.

All three of these films feature a 2D and 3D version, a Director’s Commentary, a "Making of" featurette and behind-the-scenes footage.

Containing the most dynamic aerial stunts ever shot in large format woven into a delightful story of a young boy’s dream to fly, Ultimate G’s is a story about having a dream and pursuing it despite all odds. Bonus feature material includes a 2D and 3D version, a short history of aviation entitled Zac’s Dream, Aerobatics – American Style, scenes from the Expo 2000 Air Show in Van Nuys, CA., a "Making of" featurette and a Producer/Director Commentary.
