“Ok. Iu0026#39;ll say it right now – Iu0026#39;m NOT a fan of 1990u0026#39;s horror. Scream, I Know What You Did, etc… they can do without me. Iu0026#39;m a fan of 80u0026#39;s slashers, though – and the Italian horror films of Fulci and Argento.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eWhile Valentine does share much with itu0026#39;s 1990u0026#39;s brothren (hot young cast, pulsating soundtrack), it also has much to share with 80u0026#39;s slasher flicks, and the films of Argento (please, fans of the maestro do not crucify me yet).u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eFirst an explanation of the 80u0026#39;s comparison, it should be a fairly obvious comparison. A young boy is tormented and rejected by his schoolmates, and comes back later to seek revenge. If that wasnu0026#39;t typical enough of the 80u0026#39;s, he also dispatches of victims in a way that reminds me of Prom Night. Itu0026#39;s a very nice – you know who it is, but you donu0026#39;t – type of feel. As for comparing Valentine with Dario Argentou0026#39;s films – just look at the style of the killer, and then view u0026quot;Tenebre.u0026quot; The black gloves, the relentless stalking, and even the death scenes (at times) could be seen as u0026quot;style over substance.u0026quot;u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eAll in all, Valentine is a fun, but sometimes slow moving, horror flick that is just a cut above the average horror films of late. It might not be such a big improvement, but itu0026#39;s definitely an effort.”
