Valentine

Trivia: Denise Richards as a kid tells the boy that she'd rather be boiled alive than dance with him. She dies precisely that way later in the movie.

Trivia: Adam's girlfriend makes a reference to him being "no Angel". David Boreanaz, who plays Adam, plays Angel/Angelus on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and its spin-off series, Angel.

Trivia: The guy playing the corpse in the scene when Shelly is killed, is actually a good friend of the director Jamie Blanks.

Continuity mistake: Shelly stabs the killer in the leg with the scalpel. But when we see the killer following her, he seems unhurt and there is no blood or anything.

More quotes from Valentine

Question: If the killer was Adam wanting revenge for the dance, why did he kill Campbell and the other woman we see him drag through the door, who I assume is Dorothy's step mum? But if Dorothy is the killer, why kill her boyfriend?

Answer: I think that the corpse the killer was dragging when Ruthie saw him was the maid.

Maybe Adam made the thing stop working because wanted Dorothy to go down and fix it herself, so he could kill her, but instead obviously without knowing the killer was there Dorothy instead asked Campbell to do it because she didn't know how, or she just simply didn't want to. The killer/Adam might have already been down there waiting for Dorothy but instead seen Campbell but still decided to kill him just because.

Answer: Adam killed Campbell to make sure he wouldn't interfere with his plans. The presence of Campbell's head at the house probably means that he had come by to guard or to snoop. As for Dorothy's stepmother, Adam most likely killed her to both empty the house and to further frame Dorothy as the killer - after all, Adam has no (apparent) reason to kill her, but Dorothy does.

Adam didn't kill her step-mom. That was the maid he was dragging up the stairs. Campbell was killed in the basement when he went to relight the pilot light. The head that Kate found was the detectives head who was coming to help them after telling them they had released the man they thought was the killer.
