MV5BMTY2MTQ1OTcxOF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMjc2ODUxMg@@__V1_UX182_CR0,0,182,268_AL_Review (Spoils): Remake time has it my site yet again, man we really need to get through the million horror remakes. This time we have the remake of the Canadian classic My Bloody Valentine but this time with some American style. We have the mining town of Harmony when a drilling accident causes the mine to collapse and slowly some of the miners are being killed with a pick axe. On Valentine’s Day they have a party in the mine and crazed man goes nuts with a pick axe and kills 22 people.  The survivor of the mining accident was the murderer and he gets killed by the police.

We fast forward 10 years later a young Tom Hanniger (Jensen Ackles) returns back to Harmony (he was the reason the mine collapsed) and he starts to get blamed as the murders start to happen again. Is it the original madman Harry back from the dead or is it Tom or someone else?  That is pretty much the crazy storyline.

We have pick axes, mining masks, some good gore and poor acting. If it was not for the bloody scenes this film would fall flat period. Don’t get me wrong it’s not a horrible film and its stands to the first one but the ways the killer uses the pick axe he should write a book on the many useful ways of a pick axe. Oh and there is some nudity!

Rating: I have seen worse remakes so this is not bad. The kind of knew the script would be lacking as it was in the first film too. I was surprised by the gore in this one did dish out as it is way gorier then the first. I have seen some reviews from others on this film saying it is just graphic killing just to be graphic… and you’re complaining about what here?

Review (Spoils):  Alex (Devon Sawa) board’s a plane and gets a weird graphic vision about a plane crash and all are involved in it. He freaks out and he and some of his colleagues get exhorted from the flight and lord behold it crashes. Death is not happy and he is coming back and knocking each one off one by one with freak accidents in the order of the plane crash vision.

This is a great storyline and it was unique. The graphic intro vision of the plane is over the top and it keeps you on the edge of the seat. Yes this movie screams teenage type film but we are outside of the cheesy lines and love stories and more into “how are we going to escape death”? The acting is average but the whole point of the film is graphic over the top accidents which makes this film a classic for its time.   We have hangings, brick smashing, bus smashing and a nasty shard of metal flying. The series is known for its nasty kills.

Rating:  This is the first of a unique and great series. The opening sequence is one of the best accident scenes out there and the storyline of death is coming back to take what was stolen from him is a great idea.
