Product Description

Amazon.ca

Just what the world needs, another riff on that post-Psycho horror cliché: the slasher movie. In this version, which considerably dumbs down the Lois Duncan book, the bad guy chases naughty teenagers with a hook, all the while dressed as a dark version of the Gorton's fisherman. They seem to have killed someone in a car accident while out partying, and a price must be paid. Nothing new is added to the genre, though it would be unfair not to note that this does have some scary moments. That is about all it has, because as much as this wanted to be another Scream, it hasn't the heart or the script. It does, however, have the requisite cast of small-screen stars (including Party of Five's Jennifer Love Hewitt and Buffy herself, Sarah Michelle Gellar) to have snagged box-office success, spawning a sequel. --Rochelle O'Gorman

1.0 out of 5 stars Where Do I Go to Get My Two Hours Back? Aug. 23 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Writer Kevin Williamson is undeniably a talented fellow. I was a devoted fan of Dawson's Creek for its first two+ seasons (i.e., until Williamson started farming out the writing), and I enjoyed Scream 2. But there is a dark side to Williamson, and I don't mean slasher stories. It's a greed that has him create a quality work, and then seek to maximize his salability by signing seemingly countless contracts for other projects, quality be damned. This movie, which was clearly written by Williamson thinking more about a sequel deal than the original, is a prime example of such greed and its consequences.
In I Know ..., four friends seem to have accidentally killed a young stranger. Only he's still alive. So, they kill him for real. Except that he's not young, nor is he dead.
Each member of the group starts getting anonymous notes saying, "I know what you did last summer," and is terrorized by a faceless individual in a fisherman's slicker with a huge fish hook, who ultimately begins killing them off, one by one. They determine that they are being punished for the killing the previous summer. Except that they didn't kill who they think they killed. And then it turns out that the man they "killed," was already dead.
So, why would an already dead fisherman go get himself killed, and then exact vengeance for a non-existent crime? And why would he then kill people who had nothing to do with the original, non-existent crime? But trying to answer such questions will just give you migraines. The real crime is the way Williamson and director Jim Gillespie insult the viewer's intelligence.
Although I Know ... is only 100 minutes long, I saw it on TV, which is why it cost me two hours of my life. I am writing this review, to save others from suffering my fate.

1.0 out of 5 stars best acting duo since lemmon and mathau Aug. 25 2003
By timmy
Format:DVD
There is actually a very entertaining performance given by Jennifer Love Hewitt's cleavage in this film, which steals the show totally away from Sarah Michelle Gellar's thighs, Ryan Phillippe's sensitivity, and Freddie Prinze Jr.'s hunkiness. The at times comically over-the-top pair of actors do a massive work-out throughout the film, being that they have to keep the audience from ever realizing how dull and unoriginal the movie is. The cleavage twosome do their job very well at times, although I think they've done better in lighter films like Heartbreakers. Still, their performance is proof that if you can distract the audience, they will walk away believing they actually saw a great movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars MY ALL TIME FAVOURITE! July 8 2005
Format:DVD
I LOVE THIS MOVIE! IT WAS FANTASTIC! the acting was excellent the plot was good the kills were creepy and with not too much gore. I also love that Sarah Michelle Gellar was in it she is the best and my favourite actress! When four frinds, Julie, Ray, Barry and Helen are out for a night of partying getting ready for colledge after the summer the accidentally hit a man and decide to dump his body in the waterto cover it up. One year later Julie gets a letter: I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER. That's when someone starts killing them off with a large sharp hook! With one of the best Chase scenes ever in a movie between Helen in the Fisherman (the killer). I highly recomend it, it was really creepy and full of good scares (not the cheap ones where people just pop up everywhere) the scares build on each other to create one of the most memorable and creepy movies ever! Excellent movie!!
Also see 'Scream' if you like this. Or if you liked 'Scream' watch this!

When a group of four graduates, who are getting ready to part company for summer, go for a late night drive, the driver is drunk. He hits a man. They think he is dead so they dump his body in the ocean to let it get eaten by sharks. They then go on with their lives. WRONG ASSUMPTION.
The next summer, Julie (Jennifer Love Hewitt) starts getting pictures and notes sent to her with the cryptic message "I know" written on them. She reunites with her friends Helen (Sarah Michelle Gellar), Barry (Ryan Phillipe) and Ray (Freddy Prinze Jr) to find out what is going on. It turns out that all of them except Ray has been getting the strange notes too.
Soon, one by one they are picked off one by one by a man with a hook for a hand. Finally, Julie comes face to face with the man they thought they had killed for a chilling finale.
Watch it alone and with the lights out!

5.0 out of 5 stars this is the only horror movie i like June 18 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I saw way back in 1998 and I loved it. Yeah that's right it's not really scary but more of a thriller. All actors plays thier parts very good. The death scenes are okay I guess,no gore or blood here folks so people who likes that stay away. The ending is kinda lame but don't rent or buy the second movie,it's so damm bad. Hevitt is the female actress in any horror movie I have seen in my life. She's really cute and I hopes she will do a third and final movie even if the 2nd sucked really bad. Buy this if you like thrillers or just wanna have a good time. Oh by the way for all the ladies out there. Ryan is almost naked in a long scene in the middle of the movie,he is very hot. Thank you and have a nice day.
