A quick recap of the story.A small mining community suffers a bad accident in the mine that see's several miners trapped underneath,the main person being Harry Warden. We find out he actually killed other miners so he could have more air.He is rescued and put into the hospital where they think he is in a coma.He awakens and murders many in the hospital in quite a vicious fashion and in doing so leaves human hearts behind.He returns to the mine to get revenge.He slaughters a bunch of teenagers before being shot down.The Lone surivors are Tom Hanniger(Jensen Ackles) who was actually to blame for the freak mining accident but disappears soon after,Axl Palmer(Kerr Smith) and Sarah(Jaime King) who at the time was Tom's sweetheart.
Fast forward 10 yrs,Axl has become the sheriff and has married Sarah,and Tom finally re-appears to sell the mine which was owned by his father who had passed away.But of course when he returns someone has decided to start pick-axing people and cutting hearts and placing them in Valentines day boxes.Is it Harry Warden back from the dead or is is Tom or even Axl?This film does a good job of staying true to the original but also adding some new twists which even caught me off guard.
Looks quite impressive and definitely the best on dvd or blu-ray that I have seen thus far.Replacing the blue/red glasses with new blue/green ones may have done the trick.(yes these come with the blu-ray and decked with advertisements).The opening scene where we see newspaper articles looks quite impressive in 3d including one part where it really feels as if you are going through a tunnel.
