Tom returns to his hometown on the tenth anniversary of the Valentine's night massacre that claimed the lives of 22 people. Instead of a homecoming, Tom finds himself suspected of committing the murders, and it seems like his old flame is the only one that believes he's innocent.
The murderous fisherman with a hook is back to once again stalk the two surviving teens, Julie and Ray, who had left him for dead, as well as cause even more murder and mayhem, this time at a posh island resort.

A decades-old folk tale surrounding a deranged murderer killing those who celebrate Valentine's Day turns out to be true to legend when a group defies the killer's order and people start turning up dead.
Valentine's Day 1988: At the school dance, geeky Jeremy Melton bravely faces one rejection after the other when asking four popular girls to dance with him. 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.

Come on Kate! You've always been the popular one, and Shelley was always the brainy one, and Lily was the fun one, and Paige was the sexy one, and I was the big, fat one! And as far as you're concerned, that's exactly the way that it is. Well, you know what? Screw all of you!

Marilyn Manson is on the soundtrack. What more do you want?
The best thing about the film is the soundtrack: Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie and a bunch more. But, the film itself wasn't that bad. The killings are original and much better than Wes Craven's SCREAM. The cast is not very well known except for Marley Shelton (one of the many stars of THE BACHELOR) and the amazingly hott Denise Richards (you must see WILD THINGS)!
VALENTINE scores some points for being able to pull of some scary moments, which many horror movies are not able to do. It does not have the steadily mounting terror that THE EXORCIST held, nor does it contain interesting characters (most of them are original and stupid people who learned nothing from Jamie Kennedy's "Rules to Survive a Horror Movie" in SCREAM). If you want a horror movie that isn't genre defying nor terrifying, see VALENTINE. It is somewhat scary and entertaining which is most important. VALENTINE gets 3/5.
