Goofs

When Sarah and Megan are being attacked in the grocery store, they barricade themselves in the manager's office. Sarah then spends time keeping the desk in front of the door. Megan spends time unlocking the grate on the back window. Sarah whose parents owned the store and she grew up working in it should have known that there was an alarm button right next to the door. In fact there is a warning in big letters written on the wall above the alarm buttons saying DO NOT TOUCH. Only after Megan is killed does Sarah hit the alarm button. See more »

Yes, Yes, Yes! The Live-Action Digital 3-D Revolution Begins...
15 January 2009 | by See all my reviews

My Bloody Valentine 3-D pulled out all the stops and is every bit worth the ticket price.

I admit that my expectations were pretty low at first, but as a horror fan and a 3-D fan, I went to the theater anyway not trying to get my hopes up too much.

From the very beginning, the story, action, and the visuals hooked me into it with lots of twists, turns, and shocks. Digital 3-D movies over the past few years have only offered family films or animation in 3-D.

Finally, Live-Action Digital 3-D that WORKS!! A MUST see movie if you like blood, gore, and full nudity; all in 3-D! A few story problems in the third act but everything else makes up for it. The movie is meant to be fun anyway, and it was!

Bravo to the filmmakers for making this movie entertaining and visually stunning. We are off to a great start in 3-D movies!
