Poorly made and just stupid.

The horror-thriller Valentine makes mistakes where its successful predecessors like Scream didn't, essentially revealing its antagonist in its casting.

There's no tension and no mystery.

Not only is it deadly dull, but the killer actually courts the audience's sympathy.

Hopefully audiences will come to their senses and mark this one "return to sender."

The killings themselves mostly lack imagination.

Can a film being released in 2001 really expect to be taken seriously when its killer wears a mask?

...a formula stirring in upscale sex, murder, holiday mutilation and lots of junior high school revenge fantasy.

A singularly direct and unchallenging example of the latter-day slasher film, made to a template that was starting to show its age every bit of 20 years before the movie premiered.

Yet another one of those films that Scream was supposed to have buried but instead resurrected.

Valentine isn't nearly as horrible as the ads would suggest. That's not to say the movie's good, either.

A bland whodunit slasher film starring a bunch of nineties relics...

[An] awful movie.

Frankly, the killer here is doing all of us a favor: eliminate the slow and stupid before they reproduce.

Banks entirely on the low standards of typical slasher movie fans.

Rehashes the horror genre in an unoriginal and uninvolving way that simply marks its time and body count until the muddled and silly ending.
