1st Quarter 2009: Three Great Months for Slasher Fans

  1. Jan. 13, 2009  My Bloody Valentine Uncut.  This is the holy grail of uncut slasher films.  I still find it hard to believe that MBV is finally going to be seen in all its gory glory.  Words can’t describe my excitement for this dvd.
  2. Jan. 16, 2009 My Bloody Valentine 3D.  After The Punisher and The Spirit bombed at the box office, Lionsgate’s stock took a major hit.  The studio is in desperate need of a successful film and all their hopes are riding on MBV3D.  Quite an ironic twist considering studio head Jon Feltheimer wants Lionsgate to move away from horror films.  The trailers look promising so I’ll be in the theater on opening night.
  3. Feb. 3, 2009 His Name was Jason : 30 years of Friday the 13th.  I’m more excited about this doc. dvd about the F13th series than I am about the remake.   Tom Savini acts as host and many of the major players and directors are interviewed. 
  4. Feb. 13, 2009 Friday the 13th.  Jason’s back and he’s still pissed.  What more do you need to know?  Seriously, though, it’s great  that Jason and Harry Warden are returning to the big screen just a month apart. 
  5. March 31, 2009 Psychos in Love.  I don’t have any information about dvd extras but hopefully Carmine Capobianco and Debi Thibeaultwill be interviewed or included on a commentary track.  If you’ve ever been in love with a psychotic woman or just stalked one, then this is the romantic slasher for you.

  1. You missed a couple. What about Friday 1 finally being released uncut on blu-ray or Friday 3 finally being released in 3-D!

  2. Not too mention all the independent slashers… Sigma Die, The Sisters Four, Baghead, and Amusement just to name a few.

  3. I think you can skip Baghead. I’ve heard it’s horrible…

  4. The My Bloody Valentine Uncut DVD could have no better commercial than a theatrical 3-D remake coming out the same week. The 1981 favorite is about to make many new fans.

  5. Yeah, this is definitely a huge year for slasher fans! I just hope everything lives up to expectations. I feel like the new MBV and Friday will deliver – it’d be great if the new House on Sorority Row due in October was a winner, too.

  6. Although it is great seeing some slasher movies coming to theaters again, it’s a double edged sword. I want them to be successful because I want R rated Horror to make another boom at the box office. But, if they are, then we have to suffer at the hands of more remakes of the slashers we’ve loved for many years.

  7. I’m looking forward to MBV, F13TH and Amusement.

  8. his name was jason is going to be cool. i love to see docs about the slasher moves the Halloween 25 year of terror doc was good and so was going to pieces. I would love to see anthore doc like gtp they can tolk about cheerleader camp and child play.
