"MY BLOODY VALENTINE is the best slasher ever made about the world's most pointless holiday. But it also happens to be the best "mine shaft" horror movie ever made, which is not code for anything except THIS MOVIE RULES! Twenty years ago, the town of Valentine's Bluff was unnerved by the killing spree of miner Harry Warden, who was angry about a Valentine's Day dance. Warden vowed to return with his pick-axe if the dance ever happened again. Guess what?! Dropping somewhere between the working class grit of HARLAN COUNTY U.S.A. and the trash 'n' slash mayhem of FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 2, MY BLOODY VALENTINE is a dreamy, ultra-violent triumph of golden-age-slashering. This movie will make you feel great about hating Valentine's Day all over again. (Joseph A. Ziemba)"
