Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Lisa Alspector, Chicago Reader
"I had fun anyway."
‑ Andrew O'Hehir,
"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."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Yet another one of those films that Scream was supposed to have buried but instead resurrected."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"The essential daftness isn't helped by the stars, who play it straight when they should have gone for laughs."
‑ Jo Berry, Empire Magazine
"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."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"Valentine isn't scary, but it is unsettling; not ultimately satisfying, but arresting in the moment."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"Poorly made and just stupid."
‑ Ellen MacKay, Common Sense Media
"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?"
‑ Eric Lurio, Greenwich Village Gazette
"Porno actresses are smarter than this crew!"
‑ Brad Laidman, Film Threat
"A cheesy horror flick that doesn't take itself too seriously."
‑ , Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"Looking good but lacking much in the way of personality or gray matter."
‑ Dennis Harvey, Variety
"A bland whodunit slasher film starring a bunch of nineties relics..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Scary horror flicks went out with the emergence of the self-referential horror movie."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"I'm not a big fan of horror films, but as they go this isn't a bad one."
‑ Jean Lowerison, San Diego Metropolitan
