Storyline

In the mining town of Harmony, a drilling accident is caused by the son of the owner, Tom Hanniger. The mine collapses, burying six miners alive.

Harry is killed by the deputy, but the only survivors are Tom Hanniger, his girlfriend Sarah, their friend Axel Palmer and his girlfriend Irene. Ten years later, Tom returns to Harmony after the death of his father. Tom has decided to sell the Hanniger Mine, and finds that Sarah has married Axel, who is now the local sheriff, and they have a son named Noah.

Trivia

In 2009, the Australian Classification Board released its report, which shows the most complained about titles of the year. My Bloody Valentine (2009) was in the top five with a dozen complaints. Most of the complaints were about the film's gory violence. Although the film carried the highest rating available to a non-pornographic film (R18+) in Australia, many people who wrote in wanted the film completely banned. See more »

Goofs

After Sarah hits the alarm button, you see the outside of the grocery store and you can hear the alarm going off. Seconds later the sheriff arrives. When he and Sarah go the the alley where they find Megan dead, there is now no alarm sounding. Usually only somebody from the alarm company can turn off an alarm that has been pressed. See more »

My Bloody Valentine 3-D (2009) ***
19 January 2009 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Remake of the 1981 slasher film about a maniac in a coal miner's outfit slaughtering everyone, and a worthy retread of the original. These days there has been a return of sorts to the unrestrained gory days of early '80s slasher films, and this one delivers in all those typical categories you'd expect -- the over-the-top mutilations and gore sequences, the gratuitous sex (including full frontal female nudity) and people getting theirs in a variety of inventive ways. At least it's a step up in that the main cast and victims are not just silly teenagers, but rather silly 20-somethings and older this time out. And it is a very nice bonus getting a return from old timer Tom Atkins as a retired policeman in the mix, too.

This film is also released in standard flat 2-D, but I would only have awarded it **1/2, if not for the added gimmick of third dimension, which is really what the fun is all about here. The 3-D effects are well done, seeing things fly off the screen and into your face. One wonders whether they might have taken this even farther with more deliberate situations designed to fully utilize the effect, but what's there is still cool. The "mystery" of the film kept me going back and forth in my guesstimates, up to the final second, so that was an added bonus to the usual trappings that worked for me. *** out of ****
