Genre:
horror-suspense
Synopsis:
A scientist creates a camera that produces three-dimensional versions of the items photographed. The scientist's neighbor Adam Hale sees the potential in the camera and steals it, killing the scientist in the process. Hale uses the camera, realizing that what he plucks from the pictures is actually taken from the subjects of the photos and that he has drawn the attention of the police. To hide from the authorities, he photographs himself, to hide in the film until a local boy releases him later. But the scientist's cat knocks over the camera and the film is exposed and ruined.
