I'm not a big fan of horror films, but as they go this isn't a bad one.

As run-of-the-mill slasher movies go, one of the best to hit screens since the post-Scream boom.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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?

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 ís hard to tell.

The essential daftness isn't helped by the stars, who play it straight when they should have gone for laughs.

A cheesy horror flick that doesn't take itself too seriously.
