Every slasher fan worth their weight in heart-shaped candy knows exactly who has the legendary uncut scenes for My Bloody Valentine (hint: not a company). Yup. So, pretty hard for Lion’s Gate to bone this up. Mmm hmm.
“ShockTillYouDrop.com has received early word that Lionsgate is prepping a special edition DVD of George Mihalka’s 1981 slasher film My Bloody Valentine. Artwork is in, but details on the bonus material at this time is slim. We’re told deleted scenes may possibly be included – that’s a far cry from the bare bones release from Paramount a few years back.
The arrival of this special edition, of course, is to coincide with the January 16th bow of My Bloody Valentine 3D, so look for the DVD in stores on January 13th.”
Update (Oct 29th) from Fangoria’s Michael Gingold:
“It’ll include never-before-seen lost footage, which fans can only hope means the additional gore that was trimmed to appease the MPAA back in ’81. There will also be a retrospective featurette on the movie and an Ultimate Slasher interactive guide that covers the history of the subgenre.”
Update: Well what do you know, crying works… the uncut scenes are being edited back in!!
