Fright friend Eric over at Bloody Good Horror.com recently had the chance to sit down with director Patrick Lussier for HORROR HOUND magazine and uncovered a few updates on his latest feature MY BLOODY VALENTINE 3-D. (The remake of the 1981 cult "slasher" pic.)
Current status according to the director? "Ya, we’re about to have a bit of a screening for our delicious friends at the MPAA (laughs)… We’re just hoping we don’t follow in the footsteps of the original film. The original film went back 9 or 10 times and is notorious for having (over 10) minutes or something taken out of it. But with any R rated film it’s a thing right? You’re wanting to make sure that you’re leaning over the edge but not falling into it."
He also hints at when we might get our first look at the movie via a trailer: "I suspect there will be one on SAW V. The studio will have to answer that for you. I’ve been hunkered down in my editorial bunker. (laughs)"

"Based on the 1981 cult horror, My Bloody Valentine 3D, directed by Patrick Lussier, tells a tale of Tom Hanniger (Jensen Ackles), a man who caused an accident in a coal mine in the town of Harmony, killing five men and putting one into a coma. That man, Harry Warden, wakes from his coma one year on with his mind set on revenge. Somewhat overzealous in his definition of revenge, he brutally murders 22 people before being killed himself.
Ten years on, Hanniger returns to Harmony hoping to make up for his past. His ex-girlfriend, Sarah (Jaime King), has married his former best friend (Kerr Smith). But that’s really the least of his worries, since a killer wearing a miner’s mask and armed with a pick axe has started, well, picking off the townsfolk. Is it Harry Warden back for revenge? We don’t know! We just don’t know! Run!
MY BLOODY VALENTINE 3D was directed by Patrick Lussier (DRACULA 2000) from a script by Todd Farmer (JASON X) & Zane Smith and stars SUPERNATURAL’s Jensen Ackles, Jaime King (THE TRIPPER), Kerr Smith (FINAL DESTINATION), Edi Gathegi, Kevin Tighe & Megan Boone.
