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.

My Bloody Valentine, R1 special edition DVD. 1981.
The picture quality's great, 16:9 no black bars, the unrated
footage which you can watch as part of the film?, that's not
so great, but it's still perfectly watchable. Manic miner starts
offing the townsfolk just in time for the big valentines day/night dance.
Naturally after a few drinks you're going to want a crafty after
hours tour of the mine!. Way above average horror high jinx,
excellent & bloody fx that make some horror films look tame.
A massive thank you for the reviewer(s) for this next bit of info-
get the Lionsgate special edition, it's the one with the miner
holding the heart shaped chocolate/candy box, the other version,
the one with the red thin hand drawn heart on the cover is apparently
cut. Run time 90min (not sure if that's with the extra footage).
Extras:Bloodlust-My Bloody Valentine & the rise of the slasher film-
-Bloodlines, an interactive horror film history- deleted footage
with introductions.

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...

This, 1981 version of My Bloody Valentine has all the ingredients of a good horror story & in my humble opinion, is well worth watching.

It is very 80's in the filming, scripting & acting but has stood the test of time pretty well and is better than some of the modern horror tales.

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.
