My Bloody Valentine (2009)

We watched this movie last night. It is a remake of the '81 film with the same name. I thought it was an OK movie, but Tina liked it more than I did. The funny thing is, it seemed to have that typical 80's feel to it which I really don't care for. The 80's did bring us some good horror... Hellraiser for one, but it also brought us a load of campy crap. I was hoping for a little more updated feel. Kind of like the Rob Zombie Halloween. I don't remember seeing the original, but from everything I've read it follows the original to a tee. The movie has some of the goriest scenes with a pic axe and shovel that I have seen in some time. The story revolves around a mining town where on Valentine's Day one of the miners goes nuts and starts killing teens who were having a party at the mine that night. There's a fair amount of tension and fear in this film. The Ackles character (Tom) is the son of the mine owner and witness' the massacre and only survives because the sheriff got there in time. Tom leaves town for 10 years and only comes back to sell the mine after his father's death. That's when the killings begin all over again. There's a few interesting twist to the story and it does have entertainment value. It is an 80's gore fest! Check out the trailer below and I think you will enjoy it as well.

Haunted by the mining-related massacre that took place there on Valentine's Day a decade ago, Tom (Jensen Ackles) returns to his hometown to find some closure. But no sooner does he arrive than a pickax-wielding madman begins a new bloody killing spree. Now, many suspect that the murderous miner has returned to claim his final victims -- including Tom. Patrick Lussier directs this remake of the 1981 horror classic.

R For graphic brutal horror violence and grisly images throughout, some strong sexuality, graphic nudity and language
