Harry Warden’s early Eighties killing spree turned the heads of lots of fans back in the day, and as a result My Bloody Valentine has become known as a bit of a slasher classic. As you well know, anything popular ends up getting the remake treatment so we sat down with writer Todd Farmer to get the early word on what to expect.
“We went into this thing with the best of intentions,” says Farmer. “We never wanted to treat this as just a remake and that we were all just cashing checks. Everybody involved in it really treated it with respect, which was pretty different from what I’m used to, especially with the horror genre.”
Hm. Color me interested.
“Valentine will be about as violent as we could go and get away with,” Farmer continues. “Patrick [Lussier, the film's director] would always be calling me up asking ‘Hey! What if we do this as a murder? As a kill?’ He loves this stuff. It’s wickedly bloody! We’re gonna be just sliding under the radar of the MPAA, I hope!”
We hope so, too. According to Farmer, we should be seeing the film in theatres mid-January. Look for the full interview podcast and more on My Bloody Valentine 3D as it comes.
