My Blood Valentine: The Remake In 3-D gets kind of a fun, cheesy poster!!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. Now, I don't think this movie's going to be any good. I don't have any faith in horror remakes these days. That doesn't mean it won't surprise me... I mean, it has Tom "Thrill Me" Atkins in it! There must be something good about this movie if he's in it... at least something I can enjoy. And I love the idea of 3-D gimmick horror. JAWS 3 is damn near unwatchable, but you know what? Seeing it in 3-D makes it a good film experience. I'm hoping we at least get that. MY BLOODY VALENTINE isn't a movie I feel screams out for a remake, but I have to say I'm a little interested in seeing just how good the Real D 3-D looks on a live action R-rated-for-gore-and-graphic-nudity movie. And the poster is promising some jab-you-in-the-eye full-on hardcore gimmick 3-D, which I think is appropriate. Fuck it, I'm looking forward to this movie now. We'll do it live! Fuck it! UGO got the exclusive on the poster below. Be sure to click on it for a bigger version. I've also added in some '80s 3-D posters below that this really reminded me of. Enjoy!

    I love me a good 3d pic. But a lot the theaters around where i live are just designed or capable of screening them. Do you think Blu-Ray has the potential to represent 3d movies successfully??? If so...pull some strings, get those suckers released.

    NOT designed or capable of screening them. Damn...drinking a glass of red as write, ha ha.

    That poster is HORRIBLE! But you're right...it does bring back memories of gimmickery.. but man! It's still AWFUL! It's like the box of a kids toy where you see the kid having WAY too much fun with something that's in no way that enjoyable.

    I was just about to

    by macheesmo3

    bitch about this and then the idea of 3-d made me change my mind. I just wish they could've changed a few things and called it something different instead of making another remake. Most of these thinga are only remakes in title anyway. The poster is ASS though. ( it looks like it should be in front of a ride at Universal Studios Orlando !!)

    Totally, but maybe it really goes for the throat and abuses that poke-you-in-the-eye gimmick. I could stand one of those flicks... Even if the poster looks like those Trapper Keeper images I used to have in my high school years...

    Ahhh, good old illustrated posters..

    by mr.brownstone

    There isn't a 3-D horror movie coming out for Halloween this year. What a missed opportunity. I'm definitely gonna see this though. I love 3-D and have been waiting for something like this.

    MY BLOODY VALENTINE: LOVELESS Is One Of The Top 10 Best Albums

    by LaserPants

    Oh we weren't talking about one of the best albums of all time? My bad.

  • Oct. 23, 2008, 5:45 a.m. CST

    Nice

    by Gungan Slayer

    It's kinda of retarded, but I like it. Looks like a poster for a ride at universal studios though. lol

  • Oct. 23, 2008, 5:50 a.m. CST

    Loveless is a fucking classic

    by Montag666

    One of my favorite bands of all time. I saw them live 2 weeks ago and I must say that I truly felt the physical manifestation of sound at their concert. Loudest concert ever. Too bad it's not the concert we get to watch in 3D. they had a pretty good light show as well.

  • Oct. 23, 2008, 6 a.m. CST

    I saw 'Date Movie'...

    by Droid

    and a shiver went up my spine. I thought this was going to be a horror spoof. That being said, i won't be seeing this. The 80's posters are great in a cheesy way, this ones just terrible. I'm waiting until the first, truely awesome 3D experience comes out next christmas.

  • Oct. 23, 2008, 6:38 a.m. CST

    glass?

    Quint and Trapper Keepers

    by cornponious

    Wow, you conjured that up out of nowhere. :)<p> I always wanted Trappers, and Trapper Keepers, but my parents said they were too expensive. So, i ended up just sticking all my papers in my books.<p> What were we talking about?

    Friday the 13th Part 3 in 3D

    by Jerri Blank

    I saw all of the 3D movies back in the 80's and the best of the lot was FT13th. Great 3D effects and the audience was really into it.

    Epic Win

    by Purgatori

    I'm excited about this. I haven't seen a decent 3D horror film in years. And by decent I mean cheese filled goodness that makes me laugh.

  • Oct. 23, 2008, 8:46 a.m. CST

    LOL @ the trapper keeper and toy comparisons

    by T 1000 xp professional

    I personally think it looks like a ride at universal..that kid in the closest to the camera in the poster is priceless

    friday 13th - 3D...

    by SpanksterOfLove

    is indeed the greatest and best 3D movie EVER MADE. OK, maybe not, but it is a great "bad movie". Shelly is among the greatest forgotten movie rolls of our time: The fat loser virgin Jewish boy with a nice fro and penchant for tasteless gags involving death and dismemberment. AND he introduced Jason Vorhees to his hockey mask...so...there you go.

  • Oct. 23, 2008, 9:35 a.m. CST

    Just open a cinema where the audience gets their dicks sucked.

    by Knuckleduster

    Now that's a gimmick I'd spend some good money on. Might even start watching Lindsay Lohan movies.

    by colinjbooth

    Funny how 3D comes around every 20 years or so. Will we have The Matrix (re-imagined) 3D in 2030?. They're all lame. What is this, Animal Kingdom?

  • Oct. 23, 2008, 9:54 a.m. CST

    Fuck the haters!

    by geekzapoppin

    Decent, gimmicky 3D can make the worst movie enjoyable under the right circumstances (usually involving use of chemical substances). NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS 3D, whilst not having the greatest 3D effects due to it being "dimensionalized" is quite fun. The same thing goes for BEOWULF. Not a great film, but fun as hell to watch in 3D. I've been itching for some good old-fashioned exploitative 3D. Let's hope they do it balls-out and don't market it toward teens. By the way, the original MY BLOODY VALENTINE was one of the best of the slasher flicks that followed in the wake of HALLOWEEN and FRIDAY THE 13th. It holds up really well.

  • Oct. 23, 2008, 11:05 a.m. CST

    I was not all that impressed by the Real D

    by skimn

    used for Journey To Center Of Earth. The 3d effects were fun, it just seemed that in live action, the color gets desaturated and the image a little blurry, unlike Beowolf or the Disney 3d flicks, where its sharp as can be.

  • Oct. 23, 2008, 11:10 a.m. CST

    Anyone confusing My Bloody Valentine

    by skimn

    with a "classic", has a wide net. Valentine was a decent movie an a sea of weak Friday The 13th imitators.

    where's the st-patrick's day slasher movie?

    by Bouncy X

    you could have a killer who murders anyone who dresses remotely irish, so anyone with even the slightest hint of green dies. and then the movie has a finale that takes place at a green bay packers game and all hell breaks loose.

  • Oct. 23, 2008, 1:21 p.m. CST

    Or a Jesus Christ slasher.

    by Gilkuliehe

    You know, set on a Holy Friday. A killer dresses like Jesus and puts thorns on their heads, nails on their hands, crucifixes them, etc. They finally kill him but -wait for it- he resurrects on the third day. Mel Gibson to direct. On cinemas everywhere Easter 2009.

  • Oct. 23, 2008, 1:29 p.m. CST

    jesus would make sense

    by Bouncy X

    they already had a movie where he was a vampire hunter, so having him be the slasher would be a nice "other end of spectrum" thing.

  • Oct. 23, 2008, 1:36 p.m. CST

    Yeah, but he wouldn't be the actual Jesus, you know.

    by Gilkuliehe

    It's some nutjob who THINKS he's Jesus, but pretty much looks exactly like Jesus (as seen in movies) and so people trust him, and invite him over dinner and shit. He also uses stuff from the bible as puns once he's killing. Dude, this thing writes itself.

  • Oct. 23, 2008, 2:03 p.m. CST

    (Jesus slasher title)

    Good one, skimm.

    by Gilkuliehe

    Much better than THE PASSION OF THE KNIFE. Or THE SLASHER OF THE CHRIST. Working titles, sorry.

    Just keep the theme song :)

    by holysin

    Sweet, I loved this movie as a kid, and really *really* liked the canadian folky song that played over the end credits (I think I made a wav of it from a vhs tape...) Great now I need to find that file...
