My Bloody Valentine

The 3D remake of the '80s slasherfest opens in theatres nationwide. Patrick Lussier directed from a screenplay by Todd Farmer and Zane Smith, based on the 1981 script by John Beaird, from a story by Stephen Miller. Jensen Ackles, Jaime King, Kerr Smith, Betsy Rue, Edi Gathegi, Tom Atkins, and Kevin Tighe fill out the cast. Release date: January 16. The film is quite good on its own terms; even if you are not a slasher fan, you may enjoy it, although you will need a strong stomach to handle the gore.
