David Decoteau on

My Bloody Valentine

Released 1981
Distributor Paramount Pictures

With a title so good it was adopted as the namesake of a long-running Irish band, this brutal Canadian slasher movie received some cuts itself (totaling nine minutes) for its excessive violence. Hungarian-born director George Mihalka went on to a sturdy career including the Harry Palmer opus Bullet to Beijing starring Michael Caine.
