Our rating:

It's 1988 and time for the high school dance, where the class nerd is ritually humiliated by the girls he asks to dance. And when he eventually gets lucky, the girl (Dorothy Wheeler), to save face, accuses him of attacking her. Given a savage beating and then institutionalised, the others forget about him... Thirteen years later and the girls, now young women, start receiving Valentine cards that, rather than promising undying love, promise simply death. The boy they rejected is free and has had plastic surgery; now he could be any friend, any stranger...

Blanks, who made the superior Urban Legend , scores again with this edge-of-seat slasher movie. Among the cast are Denise Richards, of James Bond, Wild Things and Starship Troopers fame, David Boreanaz from Angel as the boyfriend of Marley Shelton (Grand Theft Parsons), the one girl who let the nerd down nicely, and Jessica Capshaw from Minority Report. There are red herrings galore and, as the body count rises, so the identity of the killer, who wears a Cupid mask and clutches a large knife, becomes obvious... or does it?
