YMMV: My Bloody Valentine 3 D
  • Adaptation Distillation: Does a good job adapting the original storyline, streamlining the cast and dropping the annoying friend characters who exist mainly to die in the final act of the film. It also tosses in the bit of fan service of having the main character be called Axel, who many fans of the original film liked prior to the reveal that he was the killer better than the Designated Hero TJ.
    • Hilarious in Hindsight: They switched the names of the characters for the remake in terms of Axel the good guy and TJ, now called Tom, the bad guy.
  • Complete Monster: Harry Warden. In the original, his actions made sense, as he only killed the two men he blamed for the cave-in. In the remake however, he is shown to be a cruel bully who taunts Tom right before the explosion, then murders his fellow trapped miners simply for the selfish notion that by killing them, HE won't have to worry about them using up the oxygen in the caved in tunnel. Oh, and murdering and dismembering an entire hospital full of people after he wakes up.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: The killer murders a little person by impaling them to the ceiling with what was essentially a golf swing.
  • Narm: Ben's death actually was pretty frightening, up until the blurted out "Shit!"
    • The killer getting whacked with a piece of frozen meat, even though it was probably supposed to be comedic.
  • Squick: The cut out hearts, and mutilated bodies.
