DVD Review: MY BLOODY VALENTINE 3D Is Perfect For The Less Romantic

If your idea of Valentine's Day involves the less romantic and more outrageous of pursuits, then taking home a copy of the pretty good slasher horror flick, MY BLOODY VALENTINE 3D, might just be for you. As far as slasher horror films go, this film is a little better than most although the script is a little flawed. But the 3D version is especially entertaining as pickaxes get tossed at the camera and other 3D gimmicks.

Instead of some hockey-masked murderous wacko, MY BLOODY VALENTINE follows the insane path of destruction caused by traumatized coal miner Harry Warden who wakes up from a long coma after a Valentine's Day cave-in accident and goes on a murderous rampage. He disappears for 10 years, but a killer like him reemerges on Valentine's Day once again, just as destructive as ever. This is where the story gets a little flaky here, with a confusing turn on who is the latest coal miner killer. But the 3D effects pretty well make up for this unfortunate script turn.

Overall, this is a pretty good film to enjoy if you like your Valentine's Day a little more Gothic than most folks. Rating ++1/2(Two and a half stars, or nearly good).
