This episode of Aughtsterion may not have Sam, but it does have guest host Kalyn Corrigan and plenty of discussion about Denise Richards. And that's not just because she's an icon; it's because she's an icon in the 2001 slasher Valentine. Riding ride up against the bifurcated zone in Millennium Horror that was split apart by the events of 9/11, Valentine is a last remnant of the Tank Top Terror era's softer fare — a final bubblegum ensemble piece born of Kevin Williamson's supreme reign over the genre. Though not heralded with the classics like Scream or I Know What You Did Last Summer, Valentine is a gem, a murder movie that's both super entertaining (with a super-charged in her swagger Denise Richards) and an amazing little window into how pop culture would change in the wake of a massive attack within its borders. Horror is life and life is horror.
