  • Summary: Five best friends are each looking for a relationship -- a valentine to die for. And this year they might just get their wish. (Warner Brothers)
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 1 out of 17
  2. Negative: 13 out of 17
  1. 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.
  2. Valentine isn't scary, but it is unsettling; not ultimately satisfying, but arresting in the moment.
  3. A nose-bleeding mass murderer wears a mask that suggests Roger Ebert is knocking off a group of lifelong female friends.
  4. Doesn't contain a single scary or imaginative moment.
  5. Reviewed by: Dennis Harvey

    Looking good but lacking much in the way of personality or gray matter -- rather like its characters -- Valentine is a straightforward slasher pic that's acceptably scary until a weak finale.

    Valentine simply mines the same tired, predictable slasher-movie vein as everything else he's (Blanks) done thus far. Send this one back unopened.
  7. 0
    Valentine succeeds only in boring you to death.
