My Bloody Valentine (1981)

This years Valentine's day proved better than I could have expected. It's good to have someone who knows you well enough to realize how cool My Bloody Valentine as a VD gift is for me. Since I couldn't watch it yesterday, I figured it would make a great Terror Tuesday post and I get to share how much I loved my gifts {The other was Valentine (2001)} I can't think of a better gift, except my handmade perfect card that I would share here, but would like to keep some things to myself!!! So while I bitch and rant about how much I dislike the commercialism of holidays, it doesn't mean I don't enjoy the sentiment of them. Now back to this weeks TT post...

This is one my all time favorite slashers from the late 70s early 80s. I must admit that while watching it alone in the dark tonight, I did get a bit jumpy! So the story goes twenty years after a Valentine's day mining tragedy people start dropping dead. It follows some of the old school "horror rules", so you know whoever has sex, drinks to excess, does any recreational drugs, or is a smart ass....is a goner. Some of the acting in this film is to be expected for what it is, but for the most part it is a great movie. My Bloody Valentine definitely accomplishes what it should with me and makes me feel like someone is watching me. (yay for paranoia alone in the dark)

It's definitely worth a buy for me. I actually am really glad to have it again after losing my other copy earlier this year. If you haven't seen it, you should. I still haven't seen the remake and don't know that I want to, honestly. I love this version and don't need stupid 3D to make me like this one any better...
