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

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 ›
