My Bloody Valentine 3D
A remake of the original My Bloody Valentine and shot in 3D this film was actually quite a bit of fun despite it’s over the top gore and cheesy 3D effects. I saw this movie in 2D and will admit that it was a fun tale of mining, violence and love lost… or at least love cleaved off at the knee’s by a deranged miner!
