Scream Factory has restored an iconic slasher film from the ’80s. It’s one of the better Scream Factory, releases of the past two years, the picture on the transfer is just gorgeous, with all the original gore put back into the movie that has been censored through the years. The audio transfer is stunning on this transfer, much better than their previous release ”The House That Jack Built”. This is the definitive collector’s edition that fans want in this classic slasher film.
As far as the rest of the movie goes it’s a classic, in my opinion, the town is so iconic and acts like its own character like in A Quiet Place the score acted liked it was its own character. There’s just something about the scenery in this movie that just works, the acting is also brilliant for an ‘80s slasher in the drive-in movie kind of way.
If you don’t previously own My Bloody Valentine or only know it from the remake you should pick up this copy. It’s definitely with the buy.
