Wiki

My Bloody Valentine is a 1981 Canadian slasher film released in the wake of the popularity of the slasher genre that had overtaken the 1970s. Considered an example of the low-budget cult films reminiscent of popular slasher films such as Halloween (1978) and Friday the 13th (1980), the movie was filmed on location in Sydney Mines, Nova Scotia Canada.

The movie is infamous for having had 9 minutes cut by the MPAA due to the amount of violence and gore. Though co-producer Dunning confirmed that the excised footage still existed, attempts to release it proved difficult as Paramount Pictures refused to offer an uncut version. Lionsgate subsequently secured DVD rights to the film (as well as several other Paramount features) and released the uncut version on January 13, 2009.

Falling In Love All Over Again
I must be going through some kind of lovesick phase lately but it's a really good feeling when you think about it. It's kind of like re-living an old forgotten love affair only even better. Much better. Well, let's hope for the best here....I've been following the blogs online for the re-release of MY BLOODY VALENTINE on DVD for awhile now & it would seem that hardcore fans like myself are finally getting what we really wanted all along. Hey, what's the world coming to if you can't get what …
