Retro Review: My Bloody Valentine (1981)

Given that My Bloody Valentine is a cheap Halloween cash-in, this Canadian slasher movie hasn't aged too badly in its 31 years. Yes, it's poorly written and the acting borderlines on camp, but the kills are decent enough and the film is technically superior. Interestingly enough, the film had nine minutes cut upon initial release by the MPAA because of violence and gore. I'd be like to see that cut, because the theatrical release is no better or worse than the average slasher flick of the era. Not bad, but it was ripe to be remade. And My Bloody Valentine 3D (2009) is a lot more fun. Still, I'm glad I saw it. A Bad for me.
