Movie Info

Ten years ago, an inexperienced coal miner named Tom Hanniger (Jensen Ackles) caused an accident that killed five men and put a sixth, Harry Warden, into a coma. A year later, on Valentine's Day, Harry woke up and murdered 22 people with a pickaxe before dying. Now Tom has returned home, still haunted by the past. And something else is back in Harmony: a pickaxe-wielding killer in a miner's mask, who may be the ghost of Harry, come to claim Tom and his friends.

Audience Reviews for My Bloody Valentine

    PSA: DO NOT WATCH THE THEATRICAL VERSION WHICH IS WHAT YOU'LL FIND ON STREAMING. GET THE UNCUT VERSION ON BLURAY. After waiting most of my life to finally watch Black Christmas, which I loved, I figured I should check out My Bloody Valentine. This was pure B-movie cheese which was seriously enhanced by some great kill scenes. I watched this originally on streaming and was unimpressed. The Blu Ray uncut version? Very fun. The scenes in the mine were the most interesting and should've been at least 50% of the movie (ala The Descent). An extra star for the cool mine uniform which was the creepiest thing in the whole movie.

    The atmosphere and premise that made the original so great were gone, this is a very loose remake of the Canadian slasher about a serial killer dressed in miner suit terrorising a small town. In the remake, the killer kills randomly and there were piles of gratuitous gore for no reason other than to fill the dreadful running time. The only person worth watching in the film was Jaime King who did a brilliant job. Other than a very high body count, the film fell in the same categories as the crappy remake hype byproduct.

    Just another typical slasher film but they think adding 3D would make it better, I watched the 2D version so cant tell you if it makes a big difference to this boring film, A few good kills and a nice twist at the end still can't save it from being very poor.

    It's a slasher film with a reverse gimmick. I'm not talking about the 3D effects either, which are typical. The reverse gimmick is sneaky, but I'll tell anyway: most films of this splatter play towards the surprise (but its not anymore, cause everyone does it in all of these films) that the killer isn't who you've been led to think it is, its somebody completely different). The spin here, so wicked its nearly original, is that the killer IS who you think it is. SURPRISE. ;) Oops, spoiler alert. Have fun anyway.
