My Bloody Valentine


My Bloody Valentine

Cast:Jesen Ackles, Jamie King, Kerr Smith, Betsy Rue
Release Date:2009
Genre:Horror

By Robert Ignizio | Posted 2/4/2009

Praise the horror movie gods! My Bloody Valentine 3D makes murder and mayhem fun again, proving not all remakes have to suck. The script is a reasonably engaging "whodunit" that actually spends a little time on character development. Bloody also boasts a solid cast, including genre veteran Tom Atkins in a nice supporting role. It is unapologetically violent and includes a completely gratuitous nude scene, but unlike Saw and other recent so-called torture-porn horror, you won't feel like you need to take a shower after you leave the theater. Horror fans should eat this one up like a box of chocolates.
