Editors Note
Note Bloodthirsty fans of the classic slashers of yesteryear should be sated by MY BLOODY VALENTINE (2009), a gory trip that?s not just a remake but a retro-amalgam of the greatest hits from the 1970s, '80s, and '90s. The HALLOWEEN-influenced, eerily Canadian 1981 original holds a modest place in many horror hearts despite its notoriously trimmed violence. But even those who haven?t seen it will get the feeling that this VALENTINE sports an amplified blood-and-guts factor, one that brings with it the distinctly outlandish brutality and hulking-masked-killer archetype of a FRIDAY THE 13th installment combined with the polished chase scenes of post-SCREAM teen horror. ^As if this gore-ucopia didn?t have enough spices already, its premise and structure are also indebted to such cheeky mystery-slashers as HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME and APRIL FOOL?S DAY. A decade after traumatized miner Harry Warden goes on a pickaxe massacre, guilt-stricken Tom (Jensen Ackles) returns to his quaint hometown only to find that a string of similar murders has started up. With Warden believed to be long dead, Sheriff Axel casts suspicion on Tom. It seems his old flame, Sarah, is the only one who truly believes he?s innocent. The movie?s horror-expert filmmakers imbue VALENTINE with the reliably enjoyable entertainment-trumps-logic of slasher films, especially in the way everyone in town--including the police--seems way more interested in proving or disproving Harry Warden?s involvement than actually stopping the in-progress murder spree. Similarly, beloved genre vet Tom Atkins (NIGHT OF THE CREEPS) is on hand to deliver a coolly understated retired-cop performance. But peppered in are some nifty subliminal visual flourishes and at least one off-the-wall sequence (think little people, fully naked, fleeing; and a box-spring-as-cage). The 3-D version is uncommonly well-integrated, subjecting viewers not only to hair-raising projectiles, but to an effective immersion into the mise-en-scène.

Review It seems of late that every slasher flick is going under the remake knife, Friday the 13th, Prom Night, Black Christmas etc. the list is endless, at first I was not a big fan of remakes but I have since gone on to judge them on their own merits some have been very good others not so good...A psychopathic miner terrorizes the town of Harmony in this retelling of one of the most underrated slasher films of the early '80s with My Bloody Valentine...The plot is a lose retelling that has the same basic plot but with a few twists and turns, this time round Tom played by Jensen Ackles (Supernatural) returns to his hometown on the tenth anniversary of Harry Warden's brutal and gory rampage that knocked down the town's population by 22...Director Patrick Lussier gives a nice throw back to the golden age of slashers that pretty much follows all the 80s basis's (gore, tits, sex, logical issues that you overlook.) The performances are for the most part decent and it was great fun seeing Tom Atkins (Halloween 3) in the cast. One thing that pretty much makes a slasher flick is the kills, so how does this one measure up in those stakes? I am happy to say we get a s*** load of kills and gore, we are treated to pickaxes going through the head from all sort of angles, eyes implode, jaw ripped off and even the old Day of the Dead shovel gag shows up and when we don't see the kill onscreen we get the very gory aftermath, some of the gore is hurt a little by CGI (in 3D would have not noticed so much i think) and we also get some full frontal female nudity...The cinema I checked it out in did not show it in 3D, would have loved to see it 3D as I have nothing but praise for the 3D effects and I'm sure I would have knocked by another 2 or 3 skulls if I had the pleasure on viewing it in "Real 3D". The movie isn't a total success but there are certain things horror and 3-D fans want and this film delivers them and it well worth checking out at least once.

Review I generally cringe at the idea of complementing a movie with "it works for what it is," which is a pleasant way of saying "it sucks, but I wasn't expecting much anyway, so I suppose I shouldn't complain about low expectations." And yet here is "My Bloody Valentine," hiding behind the tiny ambitions of a crummy slasher flick, wanting to thrill without having to bother with pesky things like quality. It's a lousy movie all around, but I had a great time watching it. It's stupidly entertaining and entertainingly stupid. So there you go. It works for what it is...Horror fans already know that "Valentine" is a remake of the 1981 film of the same name. That one, involving a killer dressed up as a gas-masked coal miner offing townsfolk around Valentine's Day, was one of the more interesting thrillers to emerge in the post-"Halloween"/"Friday the 13th" slasher craze, if only by default. This new movie, penned by Todd Farmer ("Jason X") and rookie Zane Smith and directed by Patrick Lussier ("Dracula 2000" and its terrible DTV sequels), retains several key elements from the original, most important of which is a sly sense of humor..."Valentine" is, essentially, a great big wink of a throwback, celebrating the tacky showmanship of Reagan-era horror flicks. The only upgrade here is the effects work, always convincing in the blood-and-guts overkill (no pun intended). Everything else is totally, intentionally retro: the nudity is gratuitous, the "mystery" (as much as it is) is secondary to the thrills, and, unlike the grimy dourness of "torture porn," the gross-out over-the-top violence is all in the name of sick, twisted fun..."Valentine" is a total mess, filled with stupid characters, boring young actors, and laughable dialogue, but it's also a hell of a fun time. The people who want to see this sort of thing will get exactly what they want out of it, and the people who don't want to see this sort of thing won't bother anyway. It's a lousy movie but a highly effective horror movie machine. It works for what it is.

Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter The 3-D effects come fast and furious, rendered with a technical skill and humor...
Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times ...blends cutting-edge technology and old-school prosthetics to produce something both familiar and alien: gore you can believe in.
Jenni Miller, Premiere ...a fun midnight movie. Horror fans, get your friends together and go see some gore and some naked chicks in three dimensions.
Joe Leydon, Variety unabashedly retro work, reveling in the cliches and conventions of the slasher horror pics that proliferated in the early 1980s.
Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle ...full-on, old-school, Fangoria-approved, gorehound heaven...
