Overview

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 3-D. 10-years ago, the lone survivor of an accident deep in the mines awoke from a coma and slashed his way through the town in a bloody, vengeance-fueled rampage. Though shot and apparently killed, the memories of Harry Warden still haunt both the town and Tom Hanniger Jensen Ackles, the heir to the mine and one of the last people to see Harry before his disappearance. Just as Tom heads back to his hometown after a long time away, so do the killings ramp up again. While he mends his torn relationship with his ex-girlfriend Sarah Jaime King and her husband Axl Kerr Smith, citizens are knocked off one by one in spectacularly gruesome fashion all presented in 3-D. Has Harry come from beyond the grave or is there a new killer donning the suit and mask? Scream franchise editor Patrick Lussier helms from a script by Zane Smith and Jason X scribe Todd Farmer. Genre veteran Tom Atkins lends his B-movie chops to a supporting character in the Lionsgate production.

All Movie Guide - Jeremy Wheeler
It's about time that solid technology caught up to the time-honored 3-D horror craze -- and with My Bloody Valentine 3-D, the experience of being jolted in three dimensions is solidly revisited thanks to a heaping dose of nostalgic slasher-film sensibilities. Gloriously gory and presented with an eye for in-your-face audience enjoyment, Patrick Lussier's revamping of 1981's underrated classic is a return to form for the genre and a fun kick in the pants for those who like to laugh before, while, and after they are scared. With brutal kills left and right, plus a fairly decent mystery to keep things somewhat interesting, this is one remake that justifies its existence thanks to the all-new arena for which it gives new and old audiences alike the chance to have a wild interactive experience that's hard to ignore. The plot is set in the small mining town of Harmony, whose past is haunted by the memories of a murderous killing spree by Harry Warden, the lone survivor of an accident caused by the inexperienced heir to the mine, Tom Hanniger Jensen Ackles. Trapped and forced to kill his other fellow workers in order to survive, Warden was rescued, but lay comatose for over a year before awaking with a bloodlust for revenge. After slicing his way through a 22-person body count with a pickaxe, Harry was thought to have died from multiple gunshot wounds as he descended into the bowels of the mine. Ten years later, Tom returns home only to find that his sweetheart, Sarah Jaime King, has settled down with his old womanizing pal, Axel Kerr Smith, who is now the sheriff of the quaint community. As the town reels from the news that Tom might sell the mine, a string of murders forces many to think that the once-presumed-dead Harry Warden could have his own bloody Valentine to give to the citizens of Harmony. While the original's own history with violence is fraught with years of censorship rectified by the uncut DVD release upon the remake's release, its descendant revels in the gleeful gratuitousness of its onscreen bedlam. In addition, fans of the slasher mold will appreciate the skin on display just as much as the inventive methods that this murderous miner utilizes for all of his juicy kills never mind the inclusion of genre vet Tom Atkins in its cast. Its bloody bravado notwithstanding, the film does have its drawbacks -- packed with an insane opening and a steady stream of solid slayings, the picture does lose steam in its third act. While screenwriters Todd Farmer and Zane Smith deserve kudos for trying to expand the love triangle/mystery aspect, it just doesn't hold a candle to the more engaging moments of the film. By the time the killer's identity is revealed, the production is basically out of tricks to keep anyone's interest anymore. Instead of saving the coup de grĂ¢ce for the finale, Lussier and company throw all of their chips in early and don't know enough to cash out in a manner that will have them walking away with the pot and two models on each arm. Still there's a lot to enjoy in this shameless slasher. Not only is it commendable for bucking the horror trend of grimy torture-filled sludge, but the theatrical presentation really does add a delectable dimension to the proceedings that could be lost in future living-room viewings. In the end, My Bloody Valentine 3-D is unabashedly fun stuff for die-hard thrill-seekers looking for a little more action for their moviegoing buck. Sure, its tension could be tighter -- and most definitely, a flick like this should never leave its costumed killer behind after the killer's identity is revealed -- but it does its job nonetheless. 3-D schlock? Gory garbage? Most definitely, but it sure is a fun ride while it lasts.

    MY BLOODY VALENTINE

    First off, I am not a lover of remakes or reimaginings. With that said, there are a few movies that have been redone I have enjoyed and this is one of them. It is a flip on the original, gorier of course and also moody. The 3D aspect is forgetable, yet I did enjoy finding the 3D moments in the 2D version. The acting is fne, plot is fine and is not one of the best horror movies ever made, but it did revamp the original a tad. Give it a viewing or two, especially around the actaul holiday.

    Another lame remake!

    It seems all horror movies made today are sequels or remakes. When you run a franchise into the ground, it's time to redo the whole thing. Terrible mistake. The new Halloween & Friday the 13th both sucked! I only saw this film because it was in 3D. MBV should be shown to condemmed prisoners in Guantonomo Bay.

    Bloody Good Cheer

    Years ago the original My Bloody Valentine created quite a stir with its unabashed violence and haunting setting. With the release of the remake, gore is expected and twist on the original is nothing new. But, this remake does what others don't. It takes itself away from what you expect and just creates a damn good horror movie. The 3D effects are pretty decent, although it could have used more. The fact that veteran horror movie actor Tom Atkins is present gives it a boost. The only things i felt would have made this spectacular in the realm of remakes is it it would have kept the pivitol mine scene in the end and along with the credits they played the original's folksy song.

    Better than most.

    This sure isn't Shakespeare, but for a horror film, it's not too bad. Solid performances, a dash of humour, and the obligatory nudity that goes with the genre.

    MY BLOODY VALENTINE 3D is AWESOME!!!!

    I heard they're not making a sequel and that's too bad. The movie was amazing. It had suspense, mystery and a twist at the end of the movie. Plus it's 3D which was an amazing experience. I saw it twice in the movie theater and now that I own the DVD, I'm going to wear the DVD disc out! Jensen Ackles performance was amazing in this. I definitely recommend you watch it with your friends and family or by yourself if you dare!

    The biggest waste of money in a long time.

    Yeah, I got suckered in to thinking it would be worth it to pay $13 for a ticket to see this hunk o' junk on the big-screen in 3D.

    There are few things I regret in my life, but this is definitely one of them.

    A terrible, terrible film.
