Bad but the 3d did its job.

8/10 for the 3D

4/10 for the movie


The main problem is that it isn't scary and if a horror movie isn't scary then it didn't even do the bare minimum.
It feels like they had a checklist of horror conventions on set and the director had the script girl check each one off after every shooting day.

In short,

by the numbers tosh.

I think this movie was filmed in Pittsburgh and adjacent areas. Otherwise no interest.

Yep, due to the cheap tax.

The trailer has a great tag line, though: "Nothing says date film like a 3-D ride to hell!"



That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.

"Nothing says date film like a 3-D ride to hell!"

And it does succeed as a date movie.
I just wish a little more effort was put into this remake.

Fans of the original seem to love this remake. It's been called very faithful to the original and has been called one of the best remakes since the HILLS HAVE EYES remake. Haven't seen it yet, but plan to see it Wednesday, hopefully. It will be cool to see cult icon, Tom Atkins on the big screen again.

About the only big difference from the two movies is that the original had no teens in it at all. This one seems to have them judging by the trailer. The original FINALLY got its long overdue uncut release on DVD from Lionsgate. It was cut all to hell back in the day. Even the usually reliable Japanese LD was the same butchered print. The uncut version is pretty damn brutal.

The ending is almost the same as the original except...

SPOILER

it isn't the killer's son who takes up the pick axe but the schizo "surprise" is still intact.

I too tire of horror movies centering around young folk (although there is an attempt to make the cast look ten years older after the first 10 minutes but you can still tell they're 20 something).
When will we ever see adults in horror movies again?

Loveless is one of the greatest albums ever recorded. Isn't Anything is pretty damn good too, and those EPs, yummy.



Claudia, we need you to appear in LOST COMMAND. It's gonna revolutionize the war genre..

The ending here is nothing remotely similar to the original film, but you hadn't seen the whole of the original movie yet. The ending borrows the audience trickery seen in HIGH TENSION.

Saw this today. The 3D was amazing. The movie was fine for what it was. More giallo than the typical slasher movie. Some very surprising full frontal nudity from an incredibly hot blond actress. She was very brave to play a some ten minute sequence completely in the buff.

The gore was plentiful and spectacular and made good use of the 3D effects. Nothing overly realistic, but this was a damn fun popcorn movie. It was also nice to see Tom Atkins in a horror film again after so many years. The score was good, too.

It's faithful to the original for the most part save for playing with some of the characterizations and some of the plot points. The opening reminded me so much of VAMPIRE CIRCUS (1972), wherein the first 12 minutes was like a film unto itself. The BLOODY VALENTINE remake does the same thing cramming an entire film into the opening 10 to 15 minutes before the title appears.

.




They just switched the leads.
Axel is the killer as opposed to the dude who just got back to town.
I saw the HIGH TENSION esq. ending in this one to.
I hate that "everything you saw was a lie" sort of stuff.
And here it doesn't work at all.
Tom locks himself in that cage then takes the miner outfit off?
He leaves the outift in the same cage he was locked in?
Brilliant!

That was the best sequence in the whole movie and not just for the nudity.

they didn't show him take it off inside the cage. I don't have  a problem with the "Everything you saw was a lie" motif. It's been done for years. Lots of suspense thrillers and giallos have incorporated. The giallo I saw recently IN THE FOLDS OF THE FLESH (1970) with Fernando Sancho(!) as a sex crazed convict uses the same thing. In the case of HIGH TENSION and the BLOODY VALENTINE remake, the character is obviously crazy, and sees himself and the killer as two different people, (just like a lot of the nutjobs in real life) and the audience is along for the ride. I think it's a great device to keep the audience from truly guessing just who the killer is.
