What is it about movie theaters that is apparently making them sites for violence recently? Fox is reporting that after a screening of My Bloody Valentine this weekend in Valley Stream, NY, security guard Ricardo Singh tried to get people to exit the theater, but a 16-year old wanted to stay inside to wait for his ride. Singh apparently didn’t want any of that, and after an argument ensued between the two, Singh stabbed the teenager in the stomach. It sounds like the kid is fine, although he required six stitches. Singh has been arrested and charged with assault.
Despite its gimmicky use of 3D, My Bloody Valentine has actually gotten fairly positive reviews, with critics such as Devin Faraci from CHUD claiming that the film “takes what’s worked before, mixes them together well, applies some 3D and brings the results to you in a well-made, well-paced, well-done way.” I spoke with a /Filmcast listener last night who told me that there’s a 3D sex scene in the movie, that a midget gets used as a human shield and impaled, and that “if that sounds interesting to you, you should go see this movie!” But if any of you decide to go, please stay safe, as always.
Discuss: Did anybody see My Bloody Valentine? If so, what did you think? And what was the audience’s reaction?
The /Filmcast: After Dark is a recording of what happens right after The /Filmcast is over, when the kids have gone to bed and the guys feel free to speak whatever is on their minds. In other words, it’s the leftover and disorganized ramblings, mindfarts, and brain diarrhea from The /Filmcast, all in one convenient audio file. In this episode, Dave, Peter, Devindra, and Adam reflect on 3D’s place in the film industry, discuss the differences between an “auteur” and a “hack,” and recount some of their favorite theater-going experiences. Special guest Dan Trachtenberg joins us from the Totally Rad Show.

Who do you cast in a remake of Quentin Tarantino’s favorite slasher movie? Judging by the upcoming remakes of lovely ’80s knife-wielding shlock like Prom Night (April 11th) and April Fool’s Day (straight to DVD/ugh), I’d say, “I dunno, that girl today at Pinkberry?” But, noooo! The lead actress in the 2009 remake of the above-par 1981 slasher My Bloody Valentine is in fact Jaime King, who starred in Sin City and is thus less than one degree of separation of Tarantino.
Directed by Patrick Lussier, who was an editor on all three Scream films and directed the sequel to that movie where Michael Keaton fights White Noise, the new MBV will also be in 3D (I hate hyphens). King will play Sarah Palmer, a girl who makes the oft-mistake of marrying her high school sweetheart’s arch rival and having a baby with him. When her old flame returns, those little heart candies start reading, “You’re all gonna die.”
King, who is pretty hot, will play one of the vixens in Frank Miller’s hotly anticipated The Spirit. She also played the fully grown, long estranged daughter of Johnny Depp’s coke playboy at the end of Blow. I wonder how sweet the deal was for her to star in this horror remake and I hope it’s part of a trend. Maybe this movie will inspire another good band, too.
Discuss: If a slasher movie is in 3D, are you more likely to go see it? If Jaime King is in 3D, do you want to see that in a movie theater or on a monitor?
