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 it.When posting pictures, use the UBB/Forum thumbnail code generated by any of these APPROVED image hosts:
