After being horrendously embarrassed by the mean girls at school, Faye, a practicing witch, summons the evil Cupid to take revenge on all those who wronged her. On Valentine’s Day Cupid does in fact rise and will stop at nothing until the walls are covered in blood. The students must figure out a way to stop Cupid and undo the spell before their hearts get broken…very literally.

Writer/Director Scott Jeffrey has created a story about most people's favorite day of the year, Valentine's Day. His Cupid comes with an arrow but Cupid isn't looking to pierce your heart with love.

Faye is a practicing with who happens to have a crush on one of teachers. When school bully, Elise finds the teacher's lost phone she along with her band of mean girls decide to play an awful trick on Faye. Mortified Faye decides to use her skill at summoning a demon who will make sure no one in her school ever gets to experience love ever again but what she doesn't know is she has summoned Cupid but instead of spreading love he is out top pierce your heart for good.

I was looking forward to check out little Indie horror film but was keeping my expectations low but to my surprise I ended up enjoying the film a lot more than I expected to. The film starts off great with a few early killings but then it settles down and the story of Faye and how she gets bullied all the time in school begins. I have to admit this part of the film drags on a bit too long. It wasn't until the 43 minute mark that things began to pick up again and it action lasts the rest of the way to the twist right at the end.

I realize this was a low budget film and they had to be careful on spending so it is only natural that they couldn't afford to have killings throughout the whole movie but it does drag a bit. Everything isn't bad her though, the whole cast did a good job playing their roles including, Georgina Jane who plays Faye, Sarah T. Cohen who plays Elise and Abi Casson Thompson who plays teacher, Heather Drake.

Another thing that I liked about the film is the killings. While there certainly could have been more there was a good amount of blood flowing which everyone should enjoy. The effects of Cupid flying could have used a little work but the practical effects and make-up work were both well done.

So over all I enjoyed the film and I do think it will strike up a love affair with horror fans when it comes to DVD and Digital February 11.
