Jennifer Love Hewitt (from TV's "Party of Five") and Sarah Michelle Gellar (Scream 2) star with Freddie Prinze, Jr., Ryan Phillippe and Johnny Galecki in this terrifying tale of a body that just won't stay dead. After an accident on a winding road, four teens make the fatal mistake of dumping theirvictim's body into the sea. But exactly one year later, the dead man returns from his watery grave,and he's looking for more than an apology. From the writer of SCREAM.
As they celebrate their high school graduation, four friends are involved in a hit-and-run accident when their car hits--and apparently kills--a pedestrian on an isolated roadway. They dispose of the body and vow to keep the incident a secret, but a year later somebody starts sending them letters bearing the warning "I Know What You Did Last Summer." At that point the panicked foursome becomes the target of an elusive serial killer whose disguise consists of a fisherman's slicker and a lethal ice hook. Part mystery and part slasher flick, this thriller was heavily hyped as a follow-up to Scream by screenwriter Kevin Williamson (who later created the TV series Dawson's Creek), and like Scream it's a showcase for a teenage cast including Jennifer Love Hewitt and Sarah Michelle Gellar. And while this shocker isn't as inspired as Scream, it's guaranteed to give its target audience a few good thrills as it dives toward a routine climax of mayhem and murder. Based (rather loosely) on the popular novel by Lois Duncan. --Jeff Shannon

What makes this movie so entertaining is the way it's filmed. It's a nice-looking movie, but not in the "glossy" sense. The style is in the same vein as "Halloween 4;" vibrant blues and shadowy backgrounds. So the cinematography gets a perfect 10 from me. The acting isn't too bad. Hewitt is definitely a better screamer than Neve Campbell and Gellar is good as her ditzy buddy. Ryan Phillippe plays the macho-type well for such a whimpy looking guy. But, Freddie Prinze Jr. brings nothing to the table. Doe-eyed in every scene, he looks more confused than frightened. And his dialogue is simply forced.
The idea for the killer must have looked great on paper: shifty psycho who wears raincoat and has a hook for a hand. What could have become a classic horror character turns out to be a real bumbler. The killer also comes equipped with a teleportation device. One minute he's there; you turn your head for a split second and he's suddenly gone. Talk about cliche.
Regardless, it's entertaining in that stupid kind of way. You may feel a bit dumber after seeing it, but you can always take comfort in the fact that it's a pretty decent-looking film.
So, not exactly the kind of story you could make a deep, provocative movie with. Perhaps wisely, the screenwriters chose to make this a horror movie. But I honestly believe they could have done better.
IKWYDLS is your typical teens-make-mistake-that-bites-them-in-the-arse slash-em-up horror flick. Hardly original, but you know, Hollywood is driven by money, and it's not like this film did all that terrible considering what it probably cost to make.
Which isn't to say that they deserve any slack for making a bad movie, because that's more or less what this is: a bad movie. It's only worth sitting through if you're curious, and even then, you might be sorry. Aside from a completely unoriginal story and script, the acting, to say the least, leaves something to be desired. Jennifer Love Hewitt is unquestionably babely, and may be a sweetheart, but she's not a great actress, so the fact that she played the main character of Julie only makes it more difficult to connect to this movie. Sarah Michelle Gellar, on the other hand, is an AMAZING actress, but is unfortunately confined to a rather stereotypical supporting role (and, if you've seen enough horror movies, I don't think I have to tell you how her story arc goes).Read more ›
