After the loidoroymeno Urban Legend ' wrongfully ' 1998, Jamie Blanks decided to retry his luck in the field of juvenile slasher operator the pulse of the era favoring particular idiom. His next directorial work of trying to exploit another commercial date of the Western world, that of 14 February where Saint Valentine's. Of course it was not the first time someone horror filmmaker seeks to draw attention to exploiting the specific date, however a movie that cares to pick up even the very name of this Saint could not pass completely unnoticed.

What we have here then? Well-known slasher patterns in city environment as the mainstream chazocharoymenes beauties, amyaloys goides-female hunters, the mysterious and often masked murderer, the farce of the past which dramatically strabwse and smooths the way for future revenge … Of course the diversity and originality is not an easy task when talking about youthful slasher, but that does not ensure and advance our tolerance in a movie under certain thematic umbrella.

Horror Trivia

Originally there was a proposal to the Director of the famous sci-fi/thriller Donnie Darko, Richard Kelly to direct the "Valentine" but he answered in the negative.

Because can a movie despite the cliche of being well-made in the key structural axes in order to become sympathetic in the eyes of the beholder. So if this goal was achieved in ' Urban Legend ' in ' Valentine ' the Blanks failed miserably, giving an insipid and stupid film cheesy horror soon to forget. Flabby Director, naive screenplay, characters, tsapatsoylikoi kakogrammenoi dialogues and predictable finish are the weakest points of "Valentine" and of course it doesn't say and few! ini

Although some of the young actors were already at that time in movies or series (eg. the David Boreanaz in ' Angel ') their participation offers no dynamic, no substance in "Valentine". He is not the untold detective who one depicts the serious, the other ligoyreyetai the thighs of one of the protagonists, should run for the worst character of the year 2001.

Seriously now, "Valentine" over some inventive scenes of gore and suspense, can not be considered a serious horror movie. See all jazz if you want to do with your friends devouring popcorn, potato chips, peanuts and soft drinks. And if you want at least one decent slasher to celebrate Saint Valentine, clearly prefer the most genuine "My Bloody Valentine" of 1981. Other times …

Conclusion

Tried to exploit the resurgence of slasher who had brought some years earlier in the "Scream" but failed. The "Valentine" isn't the worst modern slasher but lags significantly in many levels the viewer xenerwnontas.
