The digital 3-D presentation is a must for horror fans. The picture is crystal clear and it gives the film so much depth you really feel like you are part of the story. If buckets of blood, body parts and one mean pickaxe flying at you sounds like a good time, then go see this one before it leaves theaters. Now the regular 2-D version might be a different story.
Just to let some of you know, the DVD and Blu-ray version won't be digital 3-D like in theaters (can't wait until they perfect that), so you will get four multi-colored glasses for regular 3-D. You will also have the option of just watching it in 2-D.
As for 3-D at home, not amazing, but did have it's moments. It seemed to fluctuate between clear with great 3-D to downright blurry for some scenes. There were a couple of times that I was jumping out of the way of a pick-axe or flying body parts and others were I was straining to figure out what exactly was on the screen. Being this DVD is double sided, it doesn't hurt to give it a try just for fun, but it's good to have the regular 2-D version for normal viewing at home.
We both love Jensen Ackles, which was why we watched this movie. We find him to be pure entertainment and really funny(supernatural is one the shows we never miss)...he did not disappointed. For once I actually had predicted a completely different killer, and that is surprising being 95%of the time I can tell you the ending within the first 20 minutes.
Unfortunately, no good special features on this one. But otherwise, the movie was gory, inventive kill scenes, amusing and suspenseful. Definitely worth a watch!
The first one I bought was scratched so badly that it affected playback. I returned it. The second one was better but still very badly scratched. Since the clerk said all the discs were this way I just decided to keep the disc and have it buffed/repaired at a video store. What's funny is the clerk at the video store took one look at the title and said "all ours are also the same way." My brother who is a manager of a Movie/Music retail store says they've been taking a lot of returns on this DVD for the same problem.
Whoever at Lionsgate designed this case by throwing in the glasses to scratch up the disc should be fired. They didn't even take the time to put the glasses in an envelope and put it under the insert tabs. They just thew the glasses in without care! The next time you go to a store, shake the case and you can here the glasses shaking around. Awful
Don't even think about getting the 2 Disc version as that edition is also uses a double sided disc with the same problem.
Buyer beware....if you decide to purchase than get ready to get a very badly scratched disc.
The difference being the anaglyph versions of this film come with small 3D glasses,and the film will look red and blue while watching.
That's what I call "old school" 3D so to speak.
My review is for the Bluray 3D version that requires a 3D TV.
With all the technical jargon out of the way here we go.
This remake starts out strong giving us quiet a bit of gore straight from the get go. unfortunately, My Bloody Valentine 3D only seems to decline the further you get into it,which is a crying shame considering the first half is so vicious. The best analogy that comes to mind is a heavy weight boxer with mediocre cardio. He'll hit you hard the first few rounds but after that the fight in him slows down dramatically. By the end, it almost feels like a Scooby Doo whodunit with a mix of Scream for good measure.
It's not as "trippy" as the original in it's presentation and though it's more visceral than Urban Legend or I know What You Did Last Summer, it still,by the ending,feels like it's riding on the coat tails of those franchises rather than adding something refreshing to the genre. At times it has that old spirit of the classic 80's slashers but the glimpses are only fleeting.
The 3D in this film for me helps make the sell. It's simply great,and you can find this movie for damn near pennies. I found it at a local used movie shop for 5.99,and yes that was for the 3D Bluray. It has everything you would want from a horror movie in 3D. The occasional pop out effect,with enough depth to keep it from feeling simply like a gimmick.
If you're new to 3D movies and TV's,with a budget that isn't very large you can't go wrong by picking this movie up. The 3D certainly adds to the experience and for that reason alone I would recommend this movie for any 3D library.

I love this movie. It's one of those movies that you hate to love and love to hate. It's super cheesy and full of holes, but I absolutely LOVE it. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Dannielle Hardenstine
