Reviews [click links to read more]:

” …none of the characters are remotely interesting or charismatic. The movie was clearly shot in the U.K. […] and cast with British actors, but Jeffrey has most of them putting on horrible, inconsistent American accents, which are far more distracting than just acknowledging that the movie takes place in another country.” Crooked Marquee

…Cupid is a fun teenage horror film full of angst, attitude, and death. There is also a pinch of camp added to the mix and the acting, while not exactly stellar, works. True, it is somewhat formulaic in its telling, but it still provides the viewer with a unique perspective on a holiday that is not widely considered to be dark and menacing.” Cryptic Rock

Cupid is stuntman Bao Tieu in a very obvious rubber mask. And the CGI of him flying isn’t nearly as good as it was in the prologue. The practical effects aren’t too bad, but there’s not enough of them. Indeed, Cupid suffers from too much talking and not enough stalking. And considering how obnoxious most of the film’s characters are you want them dead fairly quickly.” Voices from the Balcony
