If you've hidden from the scary killer, don't leave your hiding place after less than a minute! Why do they do that?

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

A modern-day slasher pic that is a step above most in the genre.

... Valentine insults its audience with plot mechanics that are utterly unconvincing and an ending that is silly and confusing.

What is actually scariest about Valentine is the film's tacit attitude that these girls had it coming.
Marjorie Baumgarten
Austin Chronicle
February 8, 2001
Relentless in its pursuit of suspenseless mediocrity, Valentine succeeds only in boring you to death, the most horrifying fate of all.

Valentine isn't scary, but it is unsettling; not ultimately satisfying, but arresting in the moment.

Looking good but lacking much in the way of personality or gray matter.

Succeeds on its own modest terms, and the plot doesn't fall apart under credit-roll pondering.

Yet another unimaginative retreading of any standard slasher film.

February 5, 2001
The eeriest moment was easily the movie's last, after the nonsensically contrived climax provided a classic interactive moment. 'Sequel!' the audience moaned.

When it's hard to hear the dialogue because the audience is laughing, it's clear that Valentine doesn't even succeed on its own limited terms.
| Original Score: 0.5/5

February 5, 2001
A smart, stylish horror picture that offers a fresh twist on the ever-reliable revenge theme and affords a raft of talented young actors solid roles that show them to advantage.

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

A slow-moving, predictable movie.
