DVD Review: My Bloody Valentine 3-D

Coming packed with a pair of classic red and green 3-D specs, My Bloody Valentine 3-D brings the extra dimension home from the cinema screens. Remaking the classic slasher film, My Bloody Valentine updates the 1981 original. After a mine collapses, and Harry Warden goes on a killing spree one valentines day in the small town of Harmony, 10 years on it appears the killer is back, and those involved start to fear for their lives once more.

Running at breakneck pace, My Bloody Valentine 3-D is a tense, gore-ridden modern slasher, silly and prone to clichés at times, but still maintaining a remarkably fun experience throughout.

Sadly though the 3-D technology doesn’t work so well on the small screen. On TVs the red/green technology is semi-effective, but on a laptop screen, as many potential viewers will see the film, the colours are completely off and the extra dimension ineffective unless you sit in complete darkness.
