Jamie Blanks' Valentine has aged rather well. A movie I didn't care for at the time of its release, I now see a lot more of merit in this slasher than I did back in 2001.

What struck me about Valentine was just how smart the film is, and how it taps into these intriguing female characters and relationships as well, especially at the turn of a new century when there were only the inklings of where our society was headed.

Valentine is far from perfect, but not a bad film.
February 15, 2012
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.

Poorly made and just stupid.
April 29, 2009
A bland whodunit slasher film starring a bunch of nineties relics...

Yet another one of those films that Scream was supposed to have buried but instead resurrected.
February 28, 2007
The contradictory sexual politics in this lightweight slasher suggest that at some point it was meant to satirize the traditional mores of the self-satisfied female characters.

It doesn't have those scare-the-sh*t out of you moments, and if it doesn't have any of those, what's the point?
August 1, 2003
Scary horror flicks went out with the emergence of the self-referential horror movie.

In the new teen slasher flick Valentine, a public-school nerd, now grown up, seeks to systematically murder all the girls who wouldn't dance with him at the Grade 6 Valentine's dance. Or maybe that's not what happens. It s hard to tell.

The essential daftness isn't helped by the stars, who play it straight when they should have gone for laughs.
December 8, 2002
Porno actresses are smarter than this crew!

I'm not a big fan of horror films, but as they go this isn't a bad one.
June 19, 2002
A cheesy horror flick that doesn't take itself too seriously.
June 5, 2002
The horror-thriller Valentine makes mistakes where its successful predecessors like Scream didn't, essentially revealing its antagonist in its casting.
February 14, 2002
As run-of-the-mill slasher movies go, one of the best to hit screens since the post-Scream boom.
