A fifth girl, plump and insecure, agrees, but they end up making out under the bleachers. When a group of school bullies catches them, the girl claims that Jeremy attacked her. This causes them to strip off his clothes and beat him up in front of the entire school. Flash forward to 2001. We meet the five girls who were in that school gym: Kate, Paige, Shelly, Lily and the formerly plump Dorothy. They are all in their 20’s now and trying to sort out their love lives, which is appropriate, since Valentine’s Day is coming up. After a disastrous date with a loser, one of the girls, a pre-med student, is murdered by a Cherub-mask wearing killer who sent her a death threat in the form of a Valentine card prior to the attack. After the four remaining girls are reunited at her funeral, they all start receiving threatening cards and messages. At first they don’t know who would want to hurt them, but eventually they figure that maybe Jeremy is responsible. Police records show that Jeremy has completely disappeared, so no one knows what he looks like. Could the formerly nerdish Jeremy have had plastic surgery and turned into one of the girls’ handsome boyfriends? Who ever it is, the lone survivor has to put a stop to this spurned individual’s murder spree before she, too, becomes a valentine to die for.
Plot: Five friends are stalked and murdered by a masked assailant while preparing for Valentine’s Day.

This film did not click with me. The holiday theme, the characters – God, especially the characters – all piled on top of typical slasher gimmicks. The movie also gives a quick lesson on the importance of lighting and how that one single shot of the Cherubim in good lighting can wipe out any intimidation factor that mask might have had. It looks like the mascot to some high school football team, and ever after that’s all it is.
The music was perhaps the best aspect, though a significant step down from Davis’ other works including Matrix (which I did not like), JPIII, Anti-Trust, and his best score, House on Haunted Hill (99). How does it fair against slasher classic scores such as Herrmann’s Psycho and Carpenter’s Halloween? Simple. It doesn’t. Likewise, how does the film stand up to classics? It doesn’t.
Enter your typical slasher jumps in logic – retarded actions people do that get themselves killed like the opening scene in the morgue. What viewer does not see what’s coming before it hits? Jumps in logic that only happen – only would be considered – in a movie because the writers thought it would be cool. Exaggerate reality for the sake of effect? Yeah, sure, go for it. But when a character’s life is stake, make them do utterly retarded acts of virtual suicide (even by slasher standards)? No.
Let all the characters die – none of them arose above F13 standards. Their relationships to one another were as artificial as they come. But hey, it goes along with the plot that feels itself necessary to spell out all major plots and relationships. Why not freeze frame and superimpose text saying, `She’s mad at her friends’? There’s no need to ask questions about Valentine, because the film assumes, you the viewer, are mentally defiant and feels the need to ask all the questions for you. Absolutely no subtlety, which is what kills what could’ve been an effective, controversial, and thought provoking ending. Instead we get an over-explained misfire that’s so jumbled and clumsy it defeats itself.
The premise . . . eh, might have had potential. Some sequences did have lots of potential and a few came through. The characters should have been scrapped in the first draft. Average slasher at best. If not obsessed with the genre, I’d pass this one up for a better slasher on the shelf.
Many people complain about this movie, but what is expected from a horror/slasher type film. If you don’t like this film then you do not like slasher films. For a slasher film this is very good. The story is good, it keeps you guessing; the actors behave believably, and the plot twists rap up into a nice package when the film goes full circle. Action and slasher films have very little to offer in new ideas, but the mechanics of this film is an a model for other films to follow. What interests me about this film is the concepts, this dorkey little kid who was picked on at school. Did the events which sent him off to reform school cause his madness or did every one stay away from him because he was already crazy. This film uses one of the oldest story plots from the days of the Greeks which is revenge, and the scary part is how the mind is efected by such evils.
