Last night your Unkle Lancifer was lucky enough to catch MY BLOODY VALENTINE 3-D. To tell you the truth, I cannot remember the last time I had so much fun seeing a movie in the theater. It is an absolutely straightforward funhouse ride with likable characters, a great use of location and a highly contagious mischievous spirit. We’re talking simple, absolute fun. This movie actually has the rare wisdom to trust the validity of its predecessor and the slasher genre itself while adding its own clever spin. Frankly, I felt like a teenager again sitting in a room full of total strangers screaming, laughing and in this case, ducking from flying body parts. I think that if you go see this movie and you don’t have a good time than you should just grab a shovel, walk into your backyard, dig a hole and then just lie down and call it a life. Not being able to find joy here means that there is something so broken and twisted in your soul that you are clearly beyond any type of repair and that you should really think seriously about taking your negative energy out of the universe. If you have any love for your eyeballs at all, you will go see this movie immediately and in 3-D. (No, I do not own stock in this fine film.)
P.S.: Did I mention it stars TOM ATKINS?
You mean it didn’t tank? A remake that doesn’t make you want to rip out your eyeballs and beat yourself with them? I don’t know what to say…
I know what I’m doing tonight!
We have tickets for Saturday night. A group of us are going, and now I’m REALLY looking forward to it.
Seriously, why didn’t you just say Unkle Lancifer’s Seal of Approval? I would have been sold right there!
You know, I was on the fence about going to see this tonight… but now I am sold. I am putting my trust in you UNK!
My nephew was planning to go see this movie tonight, and I made fun of him because I thought it would be lame (since most remakes suck). Well, shows what I know. Now I kinda want to see it. Thanks Unk!
I wholeheartedly agree with your love for MBV 3-D! What a blast this movie was! Great, grisly fun from beginning to end. Can’t wait to see it again!
Agreed! Agreed! Agreed! I’m on such a slasher high right now from this film. My review proper is up at Fear Zone, while I gush like the fanboy I am over on my blog.
We went to the morning showing Friday. I agree, it was a great time. I loved it!
Now I have to go out and buy the new DVD of the original.
Awesome AWESOME time at this movie. Thank you Unk, without your word of approval I wouldn’t have gone to see this little gem.
Highly recommended, nothing but fun gore from start to finish. Excellent kills, great scares, and a decent story.
Go see it.
