Blumhouse Bringing the ‘My Bloody Valentine’ Franchise Back to Life [Exclusive]

Released in 1981, the original Canadian slasher classic My Bloody Valentine spawned a Hollywood remake (My Bloody Valentine 3D) in 2009, but it’s now been 15 years since we’ve heard a peep from the franchise about a sadistic and bloodthirsty miner with a pick(axe) to grind.

Directed by Patrick Lussier, the 3D remake follows a similar storyline. “Tom returns to his hometown on the tenth anniversary of the Valentine’s night massacre that claimed the lives of 22 people. Instead of a homecoming, Tom finds himself suspected of committing the murders, and it seems like his old flame is the only one that believes he’s innocent.”

“In this little town when the 14th comes ’round, there’s a silence and fear in the air…”
