Twenty years ago, a tragic accident in a mine on St. Valentine's Day took the lives of five miners. The disaster occurred while supervisors left their posts to attend the town's annual Valentine's Day dance. The only survivor, Harry Warden, was confined to a mental institution after the ordeal. On the disaster's first anniversary, he returned to the town for bloody revenge. That was nineteen years ago, and memories have dimmed. Young lovers T.J. (Paul Kelman) and Sarah (Lori Hallier) and friend Axel (Neil Affleck) are among the townspeople attending another Valentine's party. Then, a box of Valentine candy arrives, containing an ominous message and a blood soaked heart. Before the night is over, terror will strike again and again and again...

I finally got to see the new cut of My Bloody Valentine as 3 mins of gore have been re-instated in the movie in the Lionsgate re-released DVD of this classic. If you are wondering where the rest of the 6 missing minutes are as there was 9 minutes of gore removed. Sadly it turns out the film was ruined and those scenes are unfortunately detorerated beyond repair so that the reason why they haven't included them on the new DVD but most of the gore is back and makes the forgotten classic a more remembered one. Don't go thinking that the remake follows the story of this one as the remake is based very loosely and different in many ways. However if you just want to see this for the classic it is then read on...

The inhabitants of Valentine Bluffs are planning their annual Valentine's Day dance but this year they are warned not to otherwise people will die. Naturally the young adults don't listen and the bodies start to pile up one after another in various gruesome and gory ways. I loved this film as it shows some innovativeness with the way the forewarned adults are killed, some deaths that had never been used and shown during the horrors of the 80's movies are shown and done well right here on the screen as the mystery of the miner slowly unfolds. This has the right to become a cult horror classic as this was one of the great horror movies to come out of Paramount studios at that time First Friday the 13th then My Bloody Valentine and since then the friday the 13th sequels and now Friday the 13th remake. The acting in this is good and makes you wonder whatever happened to the principal stars of this film as they seem to have disappeared into thin air. Shame I'd like to see Neil Affleck and Paul Kelman again in another movie.

REVIEWED VERSION: 2009 Lionsgate Special Edition US Blu-Ray (Extended version)

Director: George Mihalka

Cast: Paul Kelman, Lori Hallier, Neil Affleck, Keith Knight, Alf Humphreys, Cynthia Dale, Helene Udy, Peter Cowper

SYNOPSIS

In a small Canadian mining community, a miner returns every Valentine's Day to kill those who celebrate on that day with a pickax. He cuts their hearts out and puts them in chocolate boxes.
The miner, Harry Warden, is the only survivor of a mining accident 20 years ago, which happened because the men in charge of security were at a party. Now the town is planning to have the first Valentine's Day celebration since the incident..

THE PROS & CONS

Now this is the treatment we all are waiting for for the FRIDAY THE 13TH series: When MY BLOODY VALENTINE was first released in theaters, the MPAA *BUTCHERED* the film, and I mean BUTCHERED. Most deaths scenes now were off screen or heavily cut. This R-rated "tame" version was the only version available until Lionsgate released this special edition in 2009.
The BBFC imposed no further cuts to the R rated version and the rating was downgraded in 2003 to a more appropriate 15. The unrated version, however is definitely not for children: the gore scenes are strong, even for today's standards.
Personally, I found this movie to be better than any of the FRIDAY THE 13TH movies (in its UNCUT form that is). The killer in the miner's suit - sorry Jason, your hockey mask just don't cut it! Inventive kills (the nail gun kill is particularly nasty and the pickax punching the eyeball out of the socket makes the eye-popping scene in FRIDAY THE 13TH Part III look like children did that effect) definitely are worth it.

Slasher films from the 1980s are legion for they are many, unsurprisingly the quality varies and the advent of time has dimmed their impact somewhat. My Bloody Valentine is middle of the road, blighted by cuts to its gore scenes, it’s a film that has had to work hard to earn its cult following. It’s a good old stalk and slash revenger based around a coal mine where a tragedy happened many moons ago. The mystery element is strong enough to maintain interest, and although the formula is consistently one dimensional for the genre of the time, it operates well above average for the gore and blood hounds.

There’s some bad acting and some even worse moustaches! While expectation of a hidden slasher gem will only end in disappointment. But what it does it does well and a good time is assured for the undemanding horror peeps. 7/10

Wow, this is a really great looking BD. For those who don't know: After many years this movie can now be seen in it's original unrated Version, sure you will notice that the new integrated scenes are not of the same quality, but what the hell, now they are here and this moves My Bloody Valentine from a sleeping pill to a really good slasher movie. Important for us here in Europe: The BD is codefree, so come and get some of this great 80's feeling again.

I'm not sure that a four-star rating does this movie justice: the killer, the storyline, the ending and the inventive death scenes were all worth the full five - but the gore in this movie is very eddited. The way in which the killer murders the victims is gruesome and cleaver...but the scene of murder ends before any of the real gore starts. If the movie had not been so cut, it would have been fantastic instead of just very good; this is why I have only given it four stars.

However, dont let that put you off, this movie is creepy and suspenceful and it actually features a pretty cool killer. It is still a very good movie and does feature moderate amounts of gore - as long as you aren't expecting buckets of blood this movie will not dissappoint.

On Valentines Day 1960, the men in charge of running the mines left early to attend a valentines party, leaving the workers down in the mines without checking the levels of methane gas in the air. The gas levels rose too high causing a minor explosion and the mines partially collapsed, leaving only one survivor, Harry Warden, who then went crazy and murdered the three people who had left without checking the methane levels. He was then admitted into a mental institution.

Valentines Day went uncelebrated by the residents of the town for twenty years but "now", on Valentines Day of 1980, decorations are set up all over the town and a Valentines Day dance is planned by the local teenagers. When people start dieing the sheriff gets worried and calls of the celebrations. Rebelliously, the kids decide have a secret party in the mines benieth the town, where the killer turns up to make sure that this valentines is a night to dismember...
