Slasher movie about a coalminer who axes numerous victims in a little mining town
Based on original film directed by George Mihalka , it was a real success in the American cinemas and all around the world . This horror film provides great load of screams , grisly killings and creepy atmosphere which becomes pretty sinister with the miner killer appearing . This bizarre little horror movie is set in a mining town , on Valentine an explosion of methane gas took the lives of a group of coal miners working in the Hanniger Mine . Long time after, Tom Hanniger ( Jensen Ackles ) returns to his hometown on the tenth anniversary of the Valentine's night massacre that claimed the lives of 22 people , male as well female . But Tom finds himself suspected of committing some new killings , and it seems like his old flame (Jaime King) nowadays married to county sheriff ( Kerr Smith ) is the only one will believe he isn't guilty . Later on , a blood-soaked heart arrives at the police station , accompanied by an ominous message. And several people is cruelly murdered , one of then with a signal putting : ¨Be mine forever ¨ .
The picture is a sleek production with average budget and packs genuine chills , suspense , tension , and shocks , it's a terror-thriller very exciting . Gory, gruesome , pretty repellent , ghastly and unrelenting shock-feast laced with a loving triangle . The film is paced with intelligent edition , special use of color and slick utilization of shock images that take place in the astonishing close-up crimes committed by means of a pickax . This frightening movie displays terror , shocks , hard-edged scenes , creepy images and abundant nudism in charge of an explosive Betsy Rue . While the look is suitable atmospheric and eerie , the argument stretches plausibility to the breaking point . This is a customary splatter plenty of grisly killing , thrills , gruesome shocks , nauseating chills and quite entertaining . It relies heavily on old-fashioned buckets of blood and the plot belongs the same of 'Slashers genre' in ¨ Halloween ¨, ¨ 13 Friday ¨, ¨Nightmare in Elm Street ¨ style , being recently remade . This is an usual excruciatingly splatter film in which the intrigue, tension , suspense appears threatening and lurking in every room, corridors , hospital , mine , tunnel number 5 and many other places . This unrelenting shock-feast packs good make-up and nice special effects . It's just one long relentless stabbing and acceptable budget horror movie that still packs a punch for those who like to be terrorized out their wits . The motion picture is professionally directed by Patrick Lussier , a good filmmaker and editor expert on terror genre ( ¨White noise 2¨ , ¨Dracula 2000¨ , ¨Legacy¨ and ¨Ascension¨ , ¨The prophecy 3: The ascent¨). This murder-feast that will appeal to gore and guts aficionados.
