People Who Died: ‘Hollis’ from “My Bloody Valentine” (’81)

People Who Died: ‘Hollis’ from “My Bloody Valentine” (’81)
By J Astro

Horror fans are a unique sort of folk, because while many of us are the nicest & most generous, fun-loving people you’ll ever meet, we also delight in watching our fellow humans being massacred on TV and theater screens with alarming regularity. We deliriously cheer on the maniacs, monsters, and ill-mannered otherworldly visitors who make mincemeat out of our fictional peers, because that’s what we paid good money to see. And we’re usually less concerned with the so-called moral implications of such casually vicious entertainment than we are about how much soda or nacho chips we have left. I don’t wanna say we’re desensitized, necessarily… but we sure have grown to love our violent escapism. But what about those getting strangled, mangled, chopped up, beaten down, eaten, violently accosted, haunted, menaced, chased, threatened, and generally harassed at every turn? They do it all onscreen,

My Bloody Valentine

  • Fright Meter
Year: 1981Director: George MihalkaCast: Lori Hallier, Neil Affleck, Paul Kelman, Alf Humphreys, Keith Knight

In the small mining town of Valentine Bluffs things have not been the same since a freak mining accident claimed the lives of several men years before while the security was at the Annual Valentine's Day Dance. With a warning from one of the sole survivors of the accident never to hold the dance again, a group of local youngsters decide to hold the dance twenty years after the accident. Well needless to say (it is a slasher movie after all) on the eve of the Valentine's dance, people begin to be murdered by a killer disguised in a mining uniform and armed with a pick axe.

My Bloody Valentine was Canada's answer to the success of Friday the 13th and Halloween, and as the old cliche goes: Imitation is often the best form of flattery.

My Bloody Valentine (1981 - Review)

1981 - 91 mins. - Rated R

D: George Mihalka

C: Paul Kelman, Lori Hallier, Neil Affleck

Miner that went crazy after being trapped in a mine for six weeks, as the result of his boss rushing to get to a Valentine's day dance, returns to his hometown decades later to kill those celebrating Valentine's Day.

Obviously a riff on John Carpenter's Halloween with the choice holiday switched from Halloween to Valentine's Day. My Bloody Valentine has it share of corny moments complete with some corny country western music and over exaggerated performances and attitudes that are supposed to convey small town living. My Bloody Valentine even has its share of soap opera moments that deal with the inner workings of a love triangle involving two guys vying for the attention of one woman complete with a dated music score that would be fitting in a soap opera sitcom. However, when

31 Years, 31 Screams: My Bloody Valentine (1981)

My Bloody Valentine (1982) D: George Mihalka. Paul Kelman, Neil Affleck, Lori Hallier. Holidays have long been prime fodder for slasher storytellers. From Black Christmas to Halloween to the dreadful Thankskilling, nary a festive day has been spared. Perhaps it's the juxtaposition of happy tidings with death and fear. Or maybe holiday parties are just a convenient excuse to gather teens together for slaughter. Probably the latter. In order to capitalize on the success of Friday the 13th, Paramount fired off a series of slasher clones, including My Bloody Valentine – conveniently...
