My Bloody Valentine 3D

Tag line : Nothing says 'date movie' like a 3D ride to hell!

My Bloody Valentine 3DLoosely based on the 1981 film of the same name, “My Bloody Valentine” takes place in a remote American mining town, which was the setting of a bloody massacre one Valentines day years previous.

On that occaision, a psychotic miner named Harry Warden (Richard John Walters), had killed several other miners during a cave-in, before going on to massacre a group of townsfolk, until his rampage was brought to an abrupt halt by the local sheriff (Tom Atkins).

All has been quiet since then, but as the 10th anniversary of the massacre looms, a string of bodies with their hearts ripped out begin to pile up around the town, with witnesses claiming to have seen the killer wearing an old miners uniform.

It seems that the ghost of Harry Warden has either returned, or that someone is determined to keep the legend alive. Suspicion immediately falls on a young lad named Tom Hanniger, who’s father owned the mine and was one of the survivors of Harry’s original rampage. However, as the body count grows, doubts are also cast onto the new Sheriff (Kerr Smith), who was also one of the people Harry tried to kill 10 years ago, and isn’t exactly the pillar of the community people think he is either.

Now I personally enjoyed this film, if you like slasher films and the idea of seeing this in 3D appeals you’d be advised to pick this up. Please note though the film has also been released in standard 2D, so make sure which version you pick up.

Overall marks : 6/10.

  • The original version was not a huge success and original rights holder Paramount Pictures had already passed over the opportunity of making a sequel. It was only when the current trend of remakes took over the cinema that Lions Gate bought the rights to the film and looked at turning it into a 3D remake.
