What’s better than a horror movie? A horror movie in 3-D, course — or so goes the thinking behind the highly anticipated (by us) My Bloody Valentine 3-D, which opens today in theaters. We spoke over the phone to Jaime King, who, as a stereoscopically projected hologram, will be screaming thisclose to your face in the theater. We thought the movie, a follow-up to the 1981 cult classic about a deranged, pickaxe-wielding miner rampaging through a small town, was slasher-riffic — and King agrees. “I've seen it three times,” she told us. “It's one of my favorite movies ever.” She even likes the cheap, plastic polarized glasses. “They’re way better than the old red-and-blue ones. They kind of look like Ray-Bans, don’t they?" (Uh, no.) And, she acknowledges what might be the most important thing of all: the fantastic new 3-D technology’s gift to both her and her fan base of teenage boys. “My boobs were huge!” she said. “I don’t know if it was the 3-D or the costumes or what, but when I saw my first scene, I was like, ‘Whoa, what happened there?’ Then I was like, ‘All right! They look good!’”
