Nothing says 'date movie' like a 3D ride to
Directed by Patrick Lussier (Dracula 2000 and the upcoming Halloween III 3D) and released on January 19, 2009 by Lionsgate (Rated R). Starring Jensen Ackles (Supernatural), Kerr Smith (Dawson's Creek) and Jamie King (Gary Unmarried). In the mining town of Harmony a horrible accident kills 5 people in the mine. The one survivor awakes from a coma on Valentine's Day and kills 22 people. Amongst the dead are a bunch of teens who were having a party down at the mine (yeah, that sounds like a smart idea!). Only a few teens survive. Skip forward 10 years as everyone comes together again in the small town. People have changed, things have changed but one thing remains the same....It's Valentine's Day and people are gonna start dying!
I usually stand behind the original version of a movie as the best but here I actually find the remake to be much more fun to watch. The two do vary a bit in story and who the killer ends up being but they have the same overall story and feel to them. The remake is fun and kept me guessing who the killer was. Early on I had my suspicion but it was good at making me doubt my choice. I flopped like a fish back and forth until the end. Which is a good thing in my book. I don't want to completely see the ending coming from a mile away.
Beyond that it's pretty much your standard slasher film. Nothing to terribly original but lots of fun none the less. If you want something that won't make you think too hard and has some pretty boys to look at, then pop some popcorn and settle in with this little gem.
Take a look at the original trailer...
Some trivia about the movie...
1. The first two characters killed on screen are named Jason and Michael, an homage to characters from the Friday the 13th and Halloween series where the killers are non-speaking. A direct reference to the films is how they die - trademark features of the characters.
2. The film was made into a haunted house at Universal's "Halloween Horror Nights".
3. A flyer on a wall indicates that Valentine's Day is Saturday, February 14th. That would mean the previous day is Friday the 13th.
