My Bloody Valentine (1981)

Directed by George Mihalka.  Written by Stephen A. Miller and John Beaird.  Starring Don Francks (who I personally loved as “Walter” on “Le Femme Nikita”).

Plot: a decades old story about a guy who murders people on Valentine’s Day turns out to be really, really true

my-bloody-valentine-movie-shower-1981A little town is told never to celebrate Valentine’s Day again – or else – but after 20 years the kids just don’t accept that anymore.  A party is planned and as warned, people start dying.

DJ said that there wasn’t an ounce of intelligence in this movie after the party goers split up for the 27th time.  Also, when you finally receive the motive, it feels kind of forced.  And when did not looking in the fridge when you open it become a thing to do?  We’ve seen it done in other movies as well (ie. Slumber Party Massacre), but when we open the fridge we always look inside, so we’d always see the body/head/organs and we’d know there was trouble.

I thought this was a pretty decent movie.  Nothing spectacular, but definitely worth a watch.  The end was good and the ending song was PRICELESS.  However, DJ didn’t agree with me all that much and finds it completely unwatchable a second time.

I recommend with a 57/100 while DJ only gives it a 30.


About TaraRomero

I suppose I could list my favorite movies here, but instead I'll give you a strange glimpse into what makes me TaraRomero. 1. When I'm alone I like to sing really loudly to songs I know really well and pretend I'm actually good at it. 2. I am a bonified Hiddlestoner. 3. I have kept a journal for the last 25 years and I still own every one of them. 4. I like ordering travel magazines and picking out trips I'm going to take when I'm rich. 5. I'm currently worrying about my brother. I always worry about my brother. He's younger and it's my job. 6. If I knew I was dying in one hour, I would type a very strange email and then go spend time with my family (including my fur babies). 7. The best non-horror movie I've seen recently is The Giant Mechanical Man. 8. I am obsessed with Bob's Burgers and I watch one episode every night before I go to bed. 9. If I had a son I'd name him Malachai (as in Christian Mythology). If I had a daughter I'd name her Antigone (as in Greek Mythology). 10. My favorite band is and I supposed always will be, Matchbox Twenty. However, the music has become more upbeat lately and I don't like it as much. Just being honest.
