This is the most complete horror film to hit theaters in several years.

I went into this with low expectations. I've made no secret of how much I loathe the horror remake trend in Hollywood over the last few years. I was sure I could pencil it in for somewhere around 2 stars sight unseen. Boy was I in for a surprise. Lets look at how it did on my horror scale:

Funny- Y This is the weakest of the four categories for Valentine but it still delivers enough to barely get a passing score, thanks largely in part to the midget hotel clerk.

Scary- Y I found the 3-D effect with the miner light shining down into the audience to be a tremendous effect. Additionally there were several occasions with something flying into the camera that gave a jolt.

Bloody- Y There is some fantastic gore. The highlight is definitely the shovel that pits the girls face in two.

Boobs- Y Holy shit. Early in the film, when I saw how excellent the 3-D effects were, I thought how great some nudity would look. I never thought they would do it, though. And boy howdy did they. First we get a brief boob shot and I thought that would be it. I couldn't believe we would get an extended nude scene which included full frontal girl running IN 3-D! As Lester Burnham would say, "spectacular."
