My Bloody Valentine 3-D Remake Trailer

Throughout the 1980s there was a massive wave of slasher flicks inspired by John Carpenter’s Halloween, many of which were also holiday-themed. Among them was George Mihalka’s My Bloody Valentine, a movie about a psychotic miner who starts killing off lovers on Valentine’s Day. (In case you didn’t get the Valentine reference, the movie also takes place in a small Canadian town called Valentine Bluffs.) Anyway, from what I understand the movie has a bit of a cult following, but is hardly a classic… in other words, it’s perfect for a remake!

Well, someone must have sensed that this remake might be going in the direction of the recent Prom Night remake (which was completely trashed by critics), so it was decided that it needed a gimmick. Thus, My Bloody Valentine 3-D was born! The movie is directed by Patrick Lussier (White Noise 2: The Light, Dracula 2000), and is headlined by Jensen Ackles (Supernatural). If that’s not enough to scare you away, the trailer will. It basically shows us that the miner is simply going to be throwing his pick axe at the audience multiple times throughout the flick. Man, with crap like this coming out, 3-D is going to die a painful death way before James Cameron’s Avatar is even finished. My Bloody Valentine 3-D hits theatres on January 16th, 2009; check out the trailer below.

    The trailer doesn’t look that bad. If they don’t neuter the movie w/a PG-13 rating it may be ok. Also Jensen Ackles is awesome in Supernatural. I highly recommend catching up on the show if you have never seen it.

  • The MPAA rating is already out and it is a “R”, specifically for “graphic, brutal horror violence and grizzly images throughout, some strong sexuality, graphic nudity and language.”

    I think the trailer is outstanding and delivered right at their core demographic. Should soak up a lot of Box Office.

  • The original isn’t a half-bad piece of Canuxploitation. And the killer’s outfit is classic.

    Has anyone else seen Friday the 13th 3-D on the big screen? I’ve caught it twice now, and both screenings would count towards my all-time favourite movie theatre experiences. It was mostly due to all the pointy objects flying out at the audience, so I have to admit My Bloody Valentine 3-D has my interest.
