“Another violent Valentine”

Films: My Bloody Valentine (2009)

Alias: None

Type: Natural

Location: Civilized Area/Cave

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: More than two decades ago, we covered the tale of a man who copied another man so that everyone in Valentine Bluffs would lose their heart. Now, the setting has changed, as have the characters...but the outcome will remain the same...

History: In the mining town of Harmony, Pennsylvania, an explosion in the mines resulted in all except Harry Warden dying. Driven mad by the isolation, he killed all in his path before being shot and sent running while on the verge of death. Meanwhile, Tom Hanniger, son of the man behind the mines, was blamed for the disaster. Obviously, this didn't do much good for the boy's psyche, and he took up the mantle of miner killer by taking Harry's stuff and haunting Harmony on Valentine’s Day.

Notable Kills: Rams his pickaxe up a woman's head and into a ceiling light, shoves a man into the same weapon after it's put in the ground, stuffs a girl into a scalding dryer, impales another man through the chin before ripping off the entire jaw.

Final Fate: After Tom is exposed (not Axel, this time!), one of the survivors shoots him in the side...and the bullet hits a gas tank, taking him out in an explosion. Even if he managed to survive and kill another, he's still trapped under piles of rubble.

Powers/Abilities: Like Harry, Tom's signature weapon is his trusty miner pickaxe.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 4-The original miner killer was bad enough, but Tom here takes it to new heights. Whereas the original's kills were harsh yet rare in terms of brutality, almost everyone Tom kills gets it wherever he can make it the most wince-inducing. No matter who gets the title, Harry Warden's legacy will never die.

Trivia: -This was the first horror film to be made with Real D Technology, which basically meant that it milked the 3D craze back in the day for what it was worth. It...didn't exactly pan out.

-There was a rather embarrassing fumble in the script that involved one of the actresses having to do a nude scene, but she wouldn't do it without being covered by a sheet. Many dropped sheets later, and the whole scene was just cut out altogether.

The Last Airbender movie felt like a ride to Hell, all things considered.

Quick reminder: those aren't cherries.
Getting it punctured is actually what's going down.

"Whole Foods is supposed to be a pure place!"
Out of your blood and not quite into your heart.

Even Death can't give you a proper valentine.

Totally the face of sanity in a young adult.
