anaglyph 

Stereogram consisting of two superimposed and laterally displaced drawings or photographs of the same scene but taken from two directions and in complementary colours (usually red and green). If the anaglyphs are viewed through filters of the same colour, one to each eye, and induce retinal disparity (of a fixed amount) they give rise to the perception of depth or stereopsis. A set of cards, or targets on the same card, to induce various amounts of retinal disparity can be used to detect and train fusion and stereopsis (e.g. Tranaglyphs). See complementary colour; retinal disparity; sensory fusion; depth perception; random-dot stereogram; stereopsis.

The scene then merges into a blurry cyan/red image that recalls anaglyph 3-D as the viewer can subtly detect they are engaged in a sexual act.
Zone notes, "One could be grateful to Robert Rodriguez for rescuing the polychromatic anaglyph motion picture from the shadowy precincts of the sex and horror genres" (250).
