I am a hopeless romantic and love when Valentine’s season comes around every dreary February. I’m also born Canadian. Mix those facts up with horror, and you get My Bloody Valentine.
The movie’s straight-forward slasher narrative and playful take on a Valentine horror make it one of my favourite horror flicks. The slasher’s community revenge plot is part Freddy Krueger, part Jason Vorhees, and the kills are satisfyingly grotesque.
A good video introduction to the movie:
