My Bloody Valentine 

Praise the horror movie gods! My Bloody Valentine 3D makes murder and mayhem fun again, proving not all remakes have to suck. The script, while by no means Oscar caliber, is a reasonably engaging “whodunit” that actually spends a little time on character development. The film also boasts a solid cast, including genre veteran Tom Atkins in a nice supporting role. This is an unapologetically violent film, and it also has a completely gratuitous nude scene. But unlike Saw and the so-called torture-porn horror of recent years, you won’t feel like you need to take a shower after you leave the theater. Obviously, if you can’t understand why anyone would want to watch a movie where eyeballs come flying out of the screen on the end of a pickaxe, this isn’t for you. Horror fans should eat this one up like a box of chocolates, though. HHH
