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

"I Know What You Did Last Summer" centers around four high school friends who after a night of romance and drinking end up running down a man and covering up. A year later, someone is sending them creepy letters. You've got Hewitt's girl next door type, Freddie Prinze as her quiet loner boyfriend, and Ryan Phillippe as the jerk who always wants to do the stupidest and most irrational things because it fits his character. Throw in Buffy The Vampire Slayer as the teenage beauty queen with no real opinion of her own and you have a formula for success.
Williamson's dialouge is nothing but pure cheese. The moment the characters open their mouths, you immediatly want them to return to just standing there, acting pretty. The acting from the female leads is commendable but Freddie Prinze, in particular, takes lack of charisma to a new low. The story itself is so nonsensical, it's almost humorous. It plays like an anti-drinking and driving video mixed with a Hardy Boys mystery. Where "Scream" could be forgiven for being obnoxiously witty and overwritten as it was disecting the genre, this movie is just awful. Many of the character's motives don't make a lick of sense. Bridgette Wilson as the snotty older sister is pointlessly cruel without any real reason. Of course, she gets what is coming to her in predictable horror movie fashion.Read more ›
I know is about four teenage kids who having a pre- college going party a beach. The four teens get druck and on the way home they hit a man with their car.Then they made the biggest mistake known to man:They thrown his body in the river.After that they vowed each other that they would never speak of it.Just until...
A year later the four friends are reunited with each other after Julie (played by the hottest chick around Jennifer Love Hewitt)gets a threatning letter that says "I Know What You Did Last Summer". Then the four friends start getting stalked and later killed by a fisherman coat wearing serial killer who kills is victims with along sharp fish hook.
I know What You Did Last Summer is based on a novel by Mystery novelist Lois Duncan. The acting in this movie was really good and I like Hewitts and Phillippe's acting the most.But the only thing I didn't like Was that phillippe's character was a total [bad guy] .There really wasn't much gore in this one,but I liked it. I saw the sequal I wasn't that impressed with it.
I felt this was a pretty good film overall. The actors gave good performances, especially Hewitt and Gellar. I felt Prinze's character was kind of wishy washy and was just trying to be accepted by the others. The slasher was genuinely creepy and some of the scenes were truly scary. I recommend this movie to suspense and horror fans. Some of the parts will definitely scare you.
