Tom returns to his hometown on the tenth anniversary of the Valentine's night massacre that claimed the lives of 22 people. Instead of a homecoming, Tom finds himself suspected of committing the murders, and it seems like his old flame is the only one that believes he's innocent.
A decades-old folk tale surrounding a deranged murderer killing those who celebrate Valentine's Day turns out to be true to legend when a group defies the killer's order and people start turning up dead.
Revolves around a character named Jake Gray and his friends that have been playing a deadly game called "The Pathway", which eventually spirals out of control and threatens a worldwide epidemic of violence.
The murderous fisherman with a hook is back to once again stalk the two surviving teens, Julie and Ray, who had left him for dead, as well as cause even more murder and mayhem, this time at a posh island resort.

In the bar scene, Sheriff Burke who's played by Tom Atkins yells, "Everybody stand down, god damn it!" Atkins would go on to play a similar character in Patrick Lussier next feature film, Drive Angry (2011) where he would say the exact same line in the same way (during the latter film's roadblock scene).

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 »

The slasher "My Bloody Valentine" is an entertaining collection of clichés that keeps tension until the last scene despite being predictable. The greatest attraction of this forgettable feature seems to be the effects of 3D in movie theaters. I have watched at home on DVD and I had lots of fun with the silly and manipulative plot. My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): "Dia dos Namorados Macabro" ("Macabre Valentine's Day")
