I didn't even know this was out. I was in Best Buy today trying to spend a gift card somebody gave me, and saw this 3D BD sitting on the shelf. Had no clue it had even been released. Oh well, I had a gift card, so I bit.

My Bloody Valentine 3D is a B-film horror flick. In 3D.

Some guy in a miner's mask with a pickax. Gory deaths. With a thin-at-best plot. There's really not much to say about this movie; it's been done a thousand times. Of course, I'll admit that there is some entertainment value in watching a totally nude chick get disemboweled. Too bad there's not more of that...this film focuses way too much on it's stupid plot, and not enough on it's entertaining death scenes...some of which are pretty cool in 3D.

Picture quality...I'm gonna have to go hard on this film for PQ. The problem is that the transfer is way too dim for 3D. Every other 3D content I've viewed (movies, TV, and video games) has been bright enough to overcome the fact that you are wearing glasses. Everything I've viewed except this.

If DirecTV can put out cheapo 40 minute TV shows-with night scenes-that look fine in Cinema mode, then why can't a movie studio put out a transfer that also looks reasonable with accurate picture settings?

I'm guessing it's because this is (presumably) a low-budget film.

Audio is excellent. Not "reference" but still very good.

For such a B-grade slasher flick, the 3D is surprisingly good. I do have a nitpick, however. There are lots of scenes with lens glare...and the lens glare itself is in 3D, and it looks pretty annoying. It should have been edited in some way. There is also some very minor ghosting/crosstalk, but I'm talking extremely minor...nothing to complain about really.

As usual I didn't watch the special features.

Movie: 5/10
VQ: 4/10
AQ: 8.5/10
3DQ: 2.5/3
Supplements: Didn't watch.
Final word: Pass unless you are really very starved for content.
