My Bloody Valentine - Saturday Frights

Saturday Frights Vidcast: My Bloody Valentine (1981)

Friends, with it being February the 14th, it seemed the perfect time to discuss My Bloody Valentine. Now granted the Projectionist and I haven’t resurrected the Saturday Frights Podcast. But we did in fact decided to put together a special – a vidcast of sorts. Concerning the 1981 Canadian slasher film, the classic My Bloody Valentine!

In the vidcast, which runs about fifteen minutes. I share not just some of the elements I love most about the movie. Additionally I must admit that this is in fact probably my favorite film in the slasher genre. But furthermore the Projectionist and I also give a few fun facts about the film itself. As well as the 2009 remake by Lionsgate – My Blood Valentine 3D.

With this in mind, I do feel I should admit this isn’t going to be like the podcast. At no point do I go into the synopsis of the film itself. On the other hand we do bring up the soundtrack, in particular the memorable Ballad of Harry Warden. Which if you count yourself as fan, the soundtrack is available at Waxwork Records!

So when you get a moment of free time, check out the vidcast. Perhaps the Projectionist and I will convince you that a horror movie is the perfect thing to watch today?

From the Projectionist and myself – we wish you all a very Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day, 1930’s style

I’ve bought a fair number of Valentine cards over the past 20 years and they’ve always had a certain theme. I guess you could call it ‘romantic’. That makes sense, if you want to woo a potential partner, or reaffirm your love for someone, then a card that promotes those feelings of romance is definitely the way to go.

Which makes me wonder why cards produced 80 years ago were so… what’s the word? Unromantic? I know that times were different and sexual equality had a long way to go but did these cards make any woman feel special?
