My Bloody Valentine 3D Review

I have never had more fun watching a movie in my entire life. From now on I won’t see any movie unless it’s in 3-D. Just kidding!... but seriously. lol I was excited to hear they were doing this movie in 3-D. A horror flick in 3-D?!
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!
How can I pass this up?!

A 1981 remake, My Blood Valentine 3-D is an extremely gory yet fun film that probably wouldn’t have been a big deal if it wasn’t for unusual circumstances. However, My Bloody Valentine 3-D has some special ingredients in its slash-tastic recipe. These ingredients include brains, guts, jaws, blood and various pointy objects popping out of the screen via some very advanced 3-D technology - pickaxes flying at the screen, bullets racing straight at you, flames and falling trees coming right for you. Needless to say it was an exhilarating gore-ride!

Ten years ago, a tragedy changed the town of Harmony forever. Tom Hanniger, an inexperienced coal miner, caused an accident in the tunnels that trapped and killed five men and sent the only survivor, Harry Warden, into a permanent coma. But Harry Warden wanted revenge. Exactly one year later, on Valentine's Day, he woke up...and brutally murdered 22 people with a pickaxe before “supposedly” being killed. After being gone for 10 years, Tom Hanniger returns to Harmony on Valentine's Day, still haunted by the deaths he caused. He finds himself struggling to make amends with his past and he fights with unresolved feelings for his ex-girlfriend, Sarah, who is now married to his best friend, Axel, the town sheriff. But tonight, after years of peace, something from Harmony's dark past has returned. Duh-Duh-Duh-Dun Wearing a miner's mask and armed with a pickaxe, an unstoppable killer is on the loose…. again. And as his footsteps come even closer, Tom, Sarah and Axel realize in terror that it just might be Harry Warden who's come back to claim their lives… or is it? Mmm…

This film does a decent job keeping the killers true identity hidden until the very end, which was super fun. Of course you have your “who-done-it” guesses - constantly going back and forth, “he did it, no wait, he did it.” It was smart and edgy for being a simple slasher flick. I could have done without a certain scene and/or made it better, but whatever. I thoroughly enjoyed this 3-D spectacular, slash-fest and from what I observed I feel everyone in the audience did as well. 3-D movies rule!!
RATING: C+

I'm not sure I can forgive you for saying "slash-tastic," but you've certainly piqued my interest in the concept of 3-D slasher films. What a fab idea! I wonder if it will start a trend?

I'm surprised you are still watching horror movies- I would have thought our little kidnapping Birthday surprise mishap cured you of that interest! lol
