This film was horribly cut to the pieces my the MPAA back in '81 and now in 2019 Amazon chooses to upload that same censored garbage on to Prime Video??? Please Amazon, do everyone a favor and upload the true, uncut version

I'm glad I was able to enjoy this classic 80s slasher film that isn't the edited version. If you want to check out My Bloody Valentine make sure you get the Special Edition with the red tinted cover as it has all the death scenes.

The plot is very simple a town that's haunted from a mining accident that left one of the miners to go insane and kill anyone who hosted valentine's party. 20 years later the town of Valentine's Bluff is having it's first valentine's party while everyone is looking forward to it however TJ who returned to the town isn't having the best of times. His girlfriend is now going out with a friend Axel as the two are butting heads with each other as they both want Sarah.

When the sheriff gets a package of a heart along with a warning not to host the a valentine's party he and the mayor call it off after another person is killed. TJ's friends annoyed and believing the whole curse isn't true plan to host their own party at the mining station. Everything is going fine till the killer shows up and one by one begins picking them off with some of friends trapped in the mines.

I really enjoyed this movie and loved the plot twist at the end. Like I said before if you want to watch a good fun slasher like My Bloody Valentine make sure you get the Special Edition as you won't be disappointed.

The uncut version is available in this set. The 3minutes difference is what made this movie so controversial and got it banned in some countries and got the dvd release censored is in its full glory now as the director intended

Slasher with adults
Verified purchase
My Bloody Valentine (the original, not the remake), is fantastic. Very entertaining. I love that this is a slasher with adults. It's different. Also no gratuitous nudity which is rare for an 80's slasher. If you purchase this movie though be aware that the special edition is the only version that is unedited. The original version I purchased had all the death scenes cut to bits. The special edition has the original scenes in tact. It's much better with these scenes in place. I love this movie. If you like slashers I highly recommend this one. It's a cut above the rest.

Good ole 80's slasher film, like a few of them that have become iconic

This movie is not talked about as much as others but it definitely made an impression on me and has a cult following. I’ve always liked the feeling of not knowing the cast to add a level of mystery and increase the chance of not knowing who will make it to the end. I thought it was well made for a slasher movie from the time period of "Friday the 13th". I remember not being old enough to see it at the time, but seeing stills in Fangora Magazine that creeped me out. Glad to finally see it. I was surprised by the high production value and special effects/make-up, including some great camera angles to add to the creepiness. The acting was on par for that time and actually surprised by the high class background music. Just fun watch on a Fall chill quarantine Friday or Saturday evening at home. Pop some Orville Redenbacher and enjoy.

We use to watch this on VHS when it was first release in the eighties, it has gained a cult following over the years. Sound is only 2.0 mono. Wide screen edition 1.85:1 with very good special features on this two dise package. Story is good, color is great. You can't go wrong adding this to your library collection.

The unrated version is much better than the whittled down theatrical release
Verified purchase
My Bloody Valentine is one of the more underrated but brutal slasher films of the 80's. I know that the MPAA had cut the living daylights out of this film, omitting the graphic hardcore stuff but this dvd release brings it back because of the release of the remake. I kinda like the unrated cut of My Bloody Valentine better because it was more violent and gory. Awesome movie!

If you're a fan of 80's Slashers then MY BLOODY VALENTINE is a must watch! The plot is simple and true to the genre. It centers around an urban legend of a murderer killing those who celebrate Valentine's Day. When the town of Valentine Bluffs reinstates a Valentine's Day Dance, that had been suspended for two decades, people start turning up dead which brings the legend to life. THE REST IS BLOODY!!
