Consensus: Valentine is basically a formulaic throwback to conventional pre-Scream slasher flicks. Critics say it doesn't offer enough suspense or scares to justify its addition to the genre.

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.

Antagony & Ecstasy

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.

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.

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

Poorly made and just stupid.

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

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

A bland whodunit slasher film starring a bunch of nineties relics...

Trashy horror saved by the fact that it knows it is trashy and has a decent cast. I quite liked it.

Pathetically awful in every way. As a slasher, it is devoid of any gruesome, original or uncomfortable death scenes. They are just so plain and ordinary. The… More

This was pretty crappy. It really should have been straight to video. The cast was weak and really seemed to know they were making a hunk of crap.
