My Bloody Valentine 3D
Any remake of the 1981 horror classic My Bloody Valentine has a big
challenge: have loads of gore. The makers of this 2009 version met that
challenge and topped it, with plenty of very realistic gore and mayhem,
and a 3-D version for good measure. For the rental companies, they also
released a 2-D version, and the caps are from the Blu-ray 2-D version, but
the 3-D effects are pretty obvious and pretty effective even in 2-D.
Tom, the son of the owner of the local coalmine, makes a simple but
deadly mistake, and 6 men are trapped in the mine. Eventually, they are
found, but only one is alive, and he is in a coma. Later, it is discovered
that the five did not die from being trapped but rather from axe blows to
the head, and the survivor is the only suspect.
A year later, the local youth are having a Valentine's party at the mine,
when the survivor suddenly awakes, goes on a killing rampage, first at the
hospital where he has been comatose for a year, then at the party, leaving
22 people dead.
Ten years later, Tom returns to sell his dead father's mine, but he is
not welcomed with open arms, and when an axe murderer again starts to
haunt the town, Tom finds himself the prime suspect.
Keeping the classic horror ingredients, with the advantages of modern
technology and the addition of a long and very cool nude scene by Betsy
Rue, this is a must-see for gore hounds and horror freaks. I really liked
Scoop's notes: I suppose this is a darned good
genre flick. Dann likes this sort of film, and it met his requirements. I
don't like this sort of film, but I also found it entertaining. It also has 3-D
and a great nude scene. Yup, not bad at all.
