ORIGINAL MY BLOODY VALENTINE DVD RELEASE!

Some exciting news just came down the wire yesterday. The original MY BLOODY VALENTINE is finally going to be getting a decent release on DVD. ¬†This from FANGORIA’s site:

Lionsgate Home Entertainment has announced a new DVD of the 1981 cult slasher fave MY BLOODY VALENTINE, to tie in with the Gate’s theatrical release of the 3-D remake. The disc will hit January 13, and unlike the previous Paramount edition, this one will have some special features.

Most notably, it’ll include never-before-seen lost footage, which fans can only hope means the additional gore that was trimmed to appease the MPAA back in ’81. There will also be a retrospective featurette on the movie and an Ultimate Slasher interactive guide that covers the history of the subgenre. Retail price is $19.98

Check out the sweet DVD art below:

  1. The site is looking good man. Now I’m looking forward to seeing some Valentine killin’. Haven’t seen this crap in forever.

    Have you seen that new movie coming out with Tom Savini? He’s actually getting billing, and it’s actually going to theaters rather than straight the fuck to DVD. Good stuff.

  2. Thanks for the comment. I don’t know of the Savini Project you’re talking about, but if you let me know about it, I’ll report it. I’m looking forward to MY BLOODY VALENTINE (the original) as well. I am NOT looking forward to the remake even though it has Dean from Supernatural, Jensen Ackles in it. Have you had a chance to listen to my podcast? I’ll probably be uploading the newest one tonight, though it’s a bit late. Audacity issues.

    As far as the site goes, I’m thinking of changing it up and making it an actual site as opposed to a wordpress skin. That way I can index reviews alphabetically and such, though, if someone were to just search for the movie in the search bar, if I’ve reviewed it, it’ll come up. I’m actually getting google ranking too. Nice to know as I’m working towards making this a money earning site in addition to the pure fun of it. I might be facing disability in the near future as I was just diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. Means I’ll have to start getting back to updating every day again, perhaps work on some aggregation deal where I can get all of the day’s horror news from various sources showin’ up, even if it’s just in a sidebar. I’m also about to add forums. Which’ll be nifty neato.
