In the wake of films like Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer, horror fans were delivered countless slashers featuring burgeoning young stars in hopes of replicating their predecessors' success. 2001's Valentine, which starred David Boreanaz and Denise Richards, was one such slasher and it will be landing on Blu-ray from Scream Factory on February 12th with an impressive number of special features.
Revenge is sweet, just like Valentine's Day chocolates. At least, that is what a vengeful, Cupid-masked killer thinks. Be my Valentine ... or else. Broken hearts and other mortal wounds await a cast of contemporary young stars when they play dating-scene veterans dying for love in this humor-laced, twist-filled thriller cleverly directed by Jamie Blanks (Urban Legend) and starring David Boreanaz (Angel, Bones), Denise Richards (Starship Troopers), Marley Shelton (Scream 4, Planet Terror), Katherine Heigl (Grey's Anatomy) and more. Cards, candy, and flowers are nice. But for fans of stalker-shocker terror, there's nothing like a Valentine.
