Film: My Bloody Valentine 3 D
The 3D remake of the My Bloody Valentine, released in 2009.

Much like in the original film, the film is centered around murders committed around Valentine's Day, perpetuated by a psychopath in a miner's outfit.


This remake provides examples of the following tropes:

  • Axe Before Entering: The killer takes the supermarket's "Knock Before Entering" sign to its logical extreme.
  • Bar Brawl: The patrons don't take too kindly to Tom showing up at the local bar.
  • Exact Words: When Ben tells Tom to make peace with his father if he wants to, he shows him an urn containing his father's ashes.
  • Eye Open: Harry coming out of his coma.
  • Eye Scream: Jason, Ben and a rescue worker's deaths.
  • Famous Last Words: "You're dead, motherfucker!" and "Shit!"
  • Fight Scene: Lots, but props to Red for putting up a pretty good one.
  • Fingore: When Red takes a swing at Tom in the bar, he misses and ends up punching a mirror.
  • Flipping the Bird: Given to Irene by Frank.
  • Flashback: While in a coma, Harry dreams about the night he became trapped in the mine.
  • Frameup: Tom attempts to do it to Axel.
  • Freudian Excuse: Tom was driven insane by nearly being killed by Harry.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Axel. He cheats on his wife with his employee, but he also genuinely cares about the wellbeing of her and their child, even telling his wife to shoot and kill him just to ensure that she survives unharmed.
  • Karma Houdini: Tom receives this from the law over his role in the mining accident. While Tom claims that it was an accident on his part that caused the explosion/cave-in, he is absolved once the rescue teams get to the miners and discovered that Harry sadistically killed his friends in order to ensure his own survival via hogging all of the oxygen for himself.
    • Tom actually gets this twice; after he's revealed as the killer, he is presumably killed by Sarah and Axel in the mines, but survives and escapes.
  • Kick the Dog: Frank secretly videotaped himself and Irene, calls her a whore, flips her off, then says he's gotten tired of her. He also has a wedding ring on, so we can add adultery to the list.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Irene, played by Betsy La Rue, does not wear one stitch of clothing the entire time she is onscreen (and it's a long scene).
  • Necro Cam: Used when Tom is revealed to be the killer.
  • Sequel Hook: Tom survives being shot and the mine explosion, kills a rescuer, and escapes in his uniform.
  • Scream Discretion Shot: The death of the first hospital nurse.
  • The Sheriff: Axel, successor to the retired Jim Burke.
  • Shovel Strike: Sarah attacks Harry with one in the prologue. He takes it from her and proceeds to behead Brandy at the jawline with it. Near the end, Axel fights Tom with one.
  • Smoking Hot Sex: Planned by Irene, but the moment is ruined by Frank's assholishness.
  • The Stinger: The killer appears and takes a swing at the camera with his pickaxe.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Tom, with the reveal that he's got a split personality, who hates him and wants to kill everyone around him and force him to symbolically watch.
  • Would Hurt a Child: A reporter mentions that some of Harry's victims were children.
