Five comely and well-to-do female friends receive dire threats inside anonymous valentines. When two of them meet violent ends, the remaining trio suspect that the killer may be a nebbishy former classmate whom they spurned years before at a school dance. Their solution: Throw a lavish Valentine's Day party, all the better to distract them from the hulking, cherub-masked killer...

As the above suggests, Valentine is the absolute nadir of the post-Scream slasher film. Australian director Jamie Blanks (whose previous effort was the equally dismal Urban Legend, 1998) obviously had lofty goals for his film, given his bald-faced homages to John Carpenter and Dario Argento. But he hasn't a clue as to how to generate suspense, and his frequent reliance on well-worn shock effects (hands dropping on shoulders, etc.) suggests more contempt for the genre than affection. No less than four writers (including two writer-producers for Roswell, which explains the appearance of series star Katherine Heigl) contributed to the screenplay, which fails to generate the twentysomething drama and hip, cutting dialogue required for this brand of horror. As the five friends, actresses Marley Shelton, Denise Richards, Jessica Capshaw, Jessica Caufield, and Heigl have little to do other than alternately look attractive or afraid; Richards, in particular, looks weary of playing the man-eater. As Shelton's dipsomaniac boyfriend, David Boreanaz (Angel) lumbers through each scene with an embarrassed scowl.

Warner Bros.' DVD includes commentary by Blanks, as well as cast and crew interviews and a video for Orgy's contribution to the noisy, new-metal soundtrack. --Paul Gaita

If you're one of the people who're going to spend all their time bashing this movie, at least read the book. It's better, trust me. I didn't catch this movie in theaters, mainly because of the blink-and-you'll-miss-it theatrical run, and because it opened a week before Hannibal. Instead I caught the DVD, and was rather disappointed, to say the least, since I am a fan of Tom Savage's novel and director Jamie Blanks' first film, Urban Legend.
The movie begins with a nerdy, bespectacled boy named Jeremy Melton (standing in for Victor Dimorta from the novel) asking some of the prettiest girls to dance at a Valentine's Day social in 1988. He's rejected by all but one, Dorothy. Jeremy and Dorothy are later caught making out under the bleachers, and Dorothy, out of shame, claims Jeremy attacked her. Jeremy is "Carrie"-d with a bowl of fruit punch dumped on his head, stripped and savagely beaten by his male classmates.
Fast forward 13 years and Shelley Fisher (Katherine Heigl), all grown up, is the first of the girls to be slaughtered a few days before February 14 by a cherub-masked Cupid killer as she carves up corpses at med school. Her former friends, Paige Prescott (Denise Richards), Kate Davies (Marley Shelton), Dorothy Wheeler (Jessica Capshaw) and Lily Voight (Jessica Cauffiel), are all somewhat-successful career women in vaguely-defined jobs who are scouring the San Francisco dating scene, 21st-century style, when they hear of Shelley's demise. Before long, Dorothy and Lily also receive threatening Valentines and Kate finds a Cupid mask in the elevator after someone breaks into her apartment. A local detective (Fulvio Cecere) inquires of the Valentines, which are all signed simply "JM.

Director Jamie Blanks of his clever slasher film, URBAN LEGEND has done it again with a new thriller with new hot stars and thrills and chills like LEGEND. At a middle school Valentine's Day dance, Jeremy Melton (a nerdy boy with glasses and buck teeth) asks the five most prettiest girls to dance with. Of course three of the girls say " Yew!" or "I rather be buried alive!" while two say "Maybe later!" and one says "Yes!". Then the relation of CARRIE hops over while the nerd and one of the girls start making out, three older boys spot them under the bleachers and start making fun, so the girl says "He was attacking me, get away!" So they believe her and humiliate the poor boy in front of all the teenagers. Thirteen years pass after the humilation of Jeremy Melton and his five sweethearts are put to death one by one in San Francisco. Shelley( Katherine Heigl, BRIDE OF CHUCKY) is a Med student who finds herself in danger and then is murdered in a morgue. So after Shelley is bumped off, her four other pals recieve threatening valentines and maggot-filled candy chocolates and drop like flies at a Valentine's Day party. So watch Adam (David Boreanaz, TV's Angel), Kate (Marley Shelton, SUGAR & SPICE), Paige (Denise Richards, WILD THINGS), Lily (Jessica Cauffiel, LEGALLY BLONDE) and Dorthy (Jessica Capshaw) as they scream or may one of them be the masked cherub killer! Read Tom Savage's detailed thrilling novel that is just as frightening as the movie! The outrageous and hilarious dialogue spices up the horror of VALENTINE! Also there are plenty of jumping parts where our characters are scared by their friends and reply "You scared me!Read more ›

Valentine is a average slasher flick. It's not half as good as Scream, but it's a hell of a lot better than Urban Legends Final Cut. The acting is actually somewhat decent, and the film does get the viewer interested with the characters. The main problem with Valentine is that it is just another run of the mill slasher. There isn't anything that spectacular about it. There's some gore, but nowhere near as much as the gore found in Scream. Also, it's low on suspense. There is only one interesting suspenseful scene, and that is the begining murder scene in the mourge. Otherwise, it's just another rehash of people getting offed by a masked killer. Still, it's enough to keep the viewer entertained, and maybe not feel ripped off by paying the price to see the film.
Valentine opens with a scene at a 6th grade dance. Here, we see a nerdy kid named Jeremy asking a handful of girls to dance with him. After a few just blow him off completely, he asks the film's protagonist, Katie. She replies "Sorry, not right now, maybe later". He then asks a chubby girl named Dorothy who sitting on the bleachers. The next scene shows them kissing under the bleachers, when they are then found by the big bad older kids. Dorothy screams rape, and we are followed by a carrie rip off, and then to Jeremy being sent away.
The film then shifts to about decade later, one of the girls who blew off Jeremy at the dance is working late at a mourge. Guess what happens next? The girls at the dance are now being stalked by a cupid masked killer who offs them one by one.
The death scenes are interesting enough to keep the viewer entertained (pay attention ULFC!). In one of them, the killer actually uses a bow and arrow and offs a victim Robin Hood style.
