I remember the first time I saw My Bloody Valentine; it captured my heart-literally, tore it right outta my chest…

I watched MBV this weekend. The movie still holds up very well. I’ll be honest – I think it’s a better movie, and better directed, than the original Friday the 13th.

Even though the film is only 90 minutes long, it takes time to give the major characters distinct personalities. With just enough plot and dialogue, you know who these people are – mostly 20-somethings working in a mine, at jobs they will probably be stuck with for the rest of their lives. Even T.J. couldn’t make it outside of town. It’s a refreshing change from the “generic teenager” formula (which, to be fair, didn’t quite exist when MBV was made).

I agree with SmallDarkCloud. I enjoy that this movie is a slasher movie with exclusively adult characters. Not teens, not college kids. Yes, they’re young adults, but they’re still dealing with adult problems. It really is refreshing, and I wish we had more slasher movies about people over 25 (am I saying this because as a person over 25 myself, I want to see more people like me within a genre I love? Yes! Grown ups like slashers too! Honestly, possibly more than contemporary teens do at the moment.) Anyway, this movie really does hold up. It leans into what other slashers usually shy away from and I appreciate it for that.
