David Boreanaz stars in this horrifying thriller as a man who transforms his appearance and uses his newfound sex appeal to seduce the women who had tormented him. Adolescent indiscretions return to haunt four friends--Kate Paige, Lily, and Dorothy--who are now young adults. After a close friend's funeral, the women begin to receive strange, menacing Valentine's Day messages. When a detective links their friend's death to a boy they tormented in junior high school, each realizes she may know the vicious killer who hides behind a cherub's mask.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics 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.

Poorly made and just stupid.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that kids will be upset by this horror movie's atrocious violence, the mean-spiritedness of just about every character, the lack of parental figures, and the ineffectiveness of the police. Characters are offed in grisly ways, most involving knives, but there's also an electrocution, death by iron, an axe to the back, a decapitation (off-screen), an arrow to the guts, and shooting. Women are stalked and receive threatening letters, and a young boy is unjustifiably teased and beaten. The women on display are sexually aggressive, and some of them die for it. Mature themes include murder, cruelty toward grade-school peers, alcoholism, unkindness among friends, and mocking "fat" girls.
