"My Bloody Valentine" takes place in a little mining town called Valentine Bluffs. We don't really know the location of the town, but the accents of the some of the characters hint at a Canadian setting somewhere near Quebec. Some years before a terrible mining accident resulting in the deaths of several miners caused Harry Warden to snap. Warden went on a killing spree through the town on the night of the Valentine's Day dance.Read more ›
Initial rumours peristed the gore footage would be as a bonus feature - not spliced back into the film, HOWEVER, this it has been confirmed by Lionsgate that the movie will be released with the gore restored in its correct place.
Lionsgate have done what Paramount should have done several times before. Slasher fans could do with a company like Lionsgate to get their hands on the Friday The 13th series so we can see those uncut too - but i'm dreaming of course - paramount will never sell the rights to those because it makes too much cash for them.
So at last - MY BLOODY AVLENTINE TOTALLY UNCUT, REMASTERED AND RESTORED, IN WIDESCREEN! What more could a slasher fan ask for - don't hesitate - BUY THIS NOW!
In 2002, Paramount released it on DVD. To everyone's dismay, it was still the original, heavily edited theatrical cut. As a result, fans screamed for an uncut version. But Paramount refused. Fortunately, Lionsgate bought the rights to the film, and (finally) gave us what we wanted. This is the COMPLETE, UNCUT version that the censors wouldn't approve. Most of the deleted footage has been re-inserted back into the film (including the infamous pickax-through-the-eye scene). In addition, you can choose to watch the footage separately, or as part of the film (for those who cannot handle the gore, the original theatrical cut is also included). The Special Features include:
"Bloodlust: My Bloody Valentine and the Rise of the Slasher Film": A 20 minute documentary on "My Bloody Valentine". This includes interviews with the cast and crew of the original 1981 version and the 2009 remake: "My Bloody Valentine 3D".
"Bloodlines: An Interactive Horror Film History": Chronicling various kinds of horror from the past to the present.
"Deleted Footage with Director, Cast and Special Effects Designer Introductions": All of the uncut footage, which you can view here OR as part of the film!
...And there you have it!
While inspired by earlier productions, such as "Halloween" and "Friday the 13th", the plot is not the most original.Read more ›
Start with an interesting setting. Rather than a college campus or high school, we have a bleak, blue-collar mining town. Instead of free-wheeling students or teenagers we have working class twentysomethings pushing thirty. Then add a creepy backstory: a mining accident that entombed and killed all but one of a handful of miners. That survivor, Harry Warden, had to resort to cannibalism until he was rescued, messing him up for eternity and a day. The next year, on Valentine's Day, he returned (in full miner's garb with pick-axe) and brutally murdered the two supervisors who inadverdently caused the accident. He then cut their hearts out and sent it to the dance with a warning never to have another Valentine's dance.
Flash forward to the present. The townspeople are contemplating the first dance in twenty years. Naturally, a series of murders begin, with the victim's hearts cut out. Alarmed, the police decide to cancel the dance. Undeterred, the young folk decide to have a secret party (at the mine's cafeteria). And that's when the real fun begins. Some highlights: a dude's face scalded in a huge pot of boiling water, and his cut-out heart being thrown in with the franks (yum), a girl getting her head impaled on a shower head (no repetition intended), and the local drunk becoming the victim of his own practical joke.Read more ›
