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 ... Written by Tertius Saayman <tsaayman@hotmail.com>

Alternate Versions

Shelley's death was trimmed heavily. Originally, her neck actually split open and spewed blood. Now it is only implied. Ruthie's death originally contained blood flowing out into the shape of a heart. This was digitally "cleaned up" later on to decrease impact. See more »

Its NOT that bad a movie
7 February 2001 | by funkervogtSee all my reviews

This movie, despite the low rating is NOT that bad. It is better then most of the teen movies that come out these days. (I liked it more then scream and I know what you did.....). I mean, its nothing ground breaking its just good scares and fun. Don't go into this movie expecting anything special...just some typical scares and it will make you jump at times. There are also a few good death scenes. Get your friends and go see this for a good time.....I give it 6/10
