My Bloody Valentine (Special Edition) (Lionsgate) is out this week on DVD. The 1981 slasher classic about a crazed miner running around cutting out hearts with his pickax on Valentine’s Day is given the deluxe treatment on this special edition, and we have the 3D remake of the same name to thank for it. Directed by George Mihalka, and shot in Canada, this was heavily cut by the MPAA at the time, and now all the gore scenes have been put back and for the first time you can see what you missed. And trust me, there’s a lot that was scissored at the time. The notorious laundromat scene (with a body in the dryer) is particularly extended and fabulous. Included on the disc is a documentary Bloodlust: My Bloody Valentine And The Rise Of The Slasher Film with interviews with the movie’s director and some of the original cast. Can’t tell you how much fun it was revisiting my slasher “roots”.
