Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"As far as slashers go, My Bloody Valentine is fairly standard stuff. And yet, the film contains a pleasing atmosphere, turning a day dedicated to love into a day to be feared."
‑ Dustin Putman, DustinPutman.com
"It's different than Halloween! This one is Valentine's Day!"

‑ Staci Layne Wilson, Horror.com
"Quickly devolves into a piece of hackwork."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"sick, twisted, and guaranteed to leave you numb, or nauseous, or both"
‑ Bill Gibron, Filmcritic.com
"Standard slasher fare with attempts at being a whodunit."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
