Rant: Appalling My Bloody Valentine 3-D Poster!
This is why I hate 3-D movies! Lionsgate has unveiled an atrocious new poster for My Bloody Valentine 3-D. Why is this post so bad? It glorifies everything about the gimmick of 3-D, playing more off of the idea that "things" will pop out of the screen and scare you than actual high quality movie making. As much as I disliked Journey to the Center of the Earth last summer, this has just shot to the VERY top of my short list of films I am completely opposed to. Did Lionsgate eventually realize that My Bloody Valentine 3-D was going to flop bad anyway and decide to then salvage whatever they could by selling the 3-D elements of it to audiences? Whatever the case, I'm very unhappy with this poster and this movie.
My Bloody Valentine 3-D is directed by Patrick Lussier, a long-time horror editor and director of Dracula 2000 and White Noise 2: The Light. The screenplay was written by Todd Farmer (Jason X, The Messengers) and first-timer Zane Smith and is a remake of the 1981 classic horror flick of the same name. Lionsgate is debuting My Bloody Valentine 3-D in theaters everywhere on January 16th, 2009.
