Aubrey Fleming (Lindsay Lohan) was living the small town life, until the day she was abducted by a sadistic killer. After a frantic search, Aubrey turns up alive, but changed. She is missing limbs, but has gained a new personality - that of bad girl Dakota Moss. Her parents and the FBI think she's suffering from delusions, but if "Dakota" is just a trick of her mind, why do strange wounds keep appearing on her body? Desperate and alone, Aubrey must now unlock family secrets to unmask a mysterious killer with a deadly obsession.
Lindsay Lohan made a bid for stardom in a grown-up role with this overripe thriller, in which a serial killer's attack causes her personality to shift from model student to sultry stripper. The burlesque queen (named Dakota) may or may not be the subject of a writing exercise by student Aubrey, but once the latter is abducted and mutilated by a vicious killer, the former takes over, much to the consternation of Aubrey's parents (Julia Ormond and Neal McDonough). Director Chris Sivertson (who proved his knack for suspenseful material with The Lost) works hard to gild the nonsensical script with as much visual panache as possible (and he's mostly successful), but there's no getting past the dreary violence or Lohan's performance, which flounders in its attempt to deliver raw sexuality. Lohan's off-screen difficulties helped sink the picture during its brief theatrical run; undoubtedly, her stage routines (which are featured in an extended version on the disc's extras) will be the DVD's chief point of interest, as the movie itself is too flimsy to draw much attention on its own. The supplemental features also include an alternate opening and conclusion (which add nothing to the final product) and a blooper reel. -- Paul Gaita
Brainy student Aubrey Fleming (Lindsay Lohan) disappears one night after a football game. She's found days later, barely alive and horribly mutilated. She doesn't recognize her parents or her name - she insists she's a stripper named Dakota. She goes home with Aubrey's parents to recuperate but is oddly uncooperative with the police investigation, claiming she never saw her kidnapper. She starts having strange dreams, violent flashes of an attack she doesn't remember.
This film has all the earmarks of a low-budget shockfest: pointless nudity, slashing violence, and dialogue that is so corny it's laughable. The script is so convoluted and wacky that when I wasn't covering my eyes from the gore, I was rolling them at the dumb things the characters did and said (the crew from Mystery Science Theatre 3000 would have had a field day with this flick).
I'm sure none of the actors will want to put this film on their resumes. Lohan doesn't put much effort into her acting but does wear an excessive amount of eye make-up and Julia Ormond (Legends of the Fall) is wasted as her long-suffering mother. The worst part of it is that the villain's motive is never explained (don't blink or you'll miss the perp altogether). "I Know..." has sickeningly graphic torture, the dullest pole-dance ever filmed, and a ludicrous plot. For strong stomachs only.
I know who killed my Sunday night...About two thirds into the movie my boyfriend and I are trying to figure out if this was some kind of joke. EVERYTHING about the film towards the end (the 'twist', the cheesy horror music, the acting - and yes that does get worse, etc) is so thrown together and amazingly awful that any merit the first hour could have given the movie is shot. It was like the director ran out of money and just threw together something so he could technically have a movie. I don't even want to try to understand the point of this film or if there was any artistic value in it. I basically think the point was for Lohan to parade around on stage doing a number much resembling Britney Spear's Gimme More video and people would pay to watch it because she was in it. Obviously I am disappointed because it did begin with much promise. I am just amazed somebody thought this was okay to release to the public.
"I Know Who Killed Me" is a vile little horror outing that was designed as some sort of "comeback" vehicle for Lindsay Lohan back in early 2007. Needless to say, the movie did not succeed in that endeavor. Anything but.
Lohan plays Aubrey Fleming, an attractive, but relatively naive high school student who falls prey to a torture-crazed serial killer who manages to slice off a few of her limbs before she miraculously escapes his clutches. When she wakes up in the hospital, she believes herself to be a girl named Dakota Moss, some kind of fictional "alter ego" with a life straight out of a soft-porn novel - which provides us with ample opportunity to ogle the scantily-clad Lohan as she writhes around in slow-motion performing pole-dances at a sleazy strip joint. Is Aubrey, who is herself a writer of fiction, simply a victim of repression, a wild and free spirit so obsessed with being a "good little girl" that she`s allowed her true nature to remain buried in her subconscious all these years? And is the trauma she's undergone simply the vehicle through which that true nature can now come to the fore? Or is there another, less purely psychological explanation - let's say, symbiotic twins? - for this sudden shift in identity?
It doesn't really matter what the answers to those questions are, for this depressing foray into sadism, dismemberment and supernatural hocus pocus is poorly written, amateurishly acted and completely lacking in either thrills or common sense. Actually, the story itself might have had some validity had it not forced the audience to wallow in as much gratuitous unpleasantness as it does. But, as it is, whenever we begin to develop even the meagerest interest in what is happening, we're subjected to yet another round of stomach-churning bloodletting. Yuck.

If you look at this movie for what it is, a psychological thriller about a girl who may be chanelling two identites, it is just a cheesy thriller with a rather predictable ending. Watching this movie for the first time, I was a little dissapointed. The Trailer for this film, made it look a little better I agree, but it also was cut and pasted together pretty nicely. When i saw it for a second time, it made more sense, it was supposed to be a simple thriller, not some amazing hollywood movie with oscar acting.
But if you watch it not expecting too much than how can you really get dissapointed. All thrillers and horror movies are gory, gruesome, and cheesy. The good always wins and the bad always dies. Same sort of senario here.
I have to say lastly that, I give Lindsay Lohan credit for stepping outside her "typical" movie to play something different. I am not saying that she is the greatest in this film, but I do give her credit for trying. It takes a lot to break the type cast you are stuck in as an actor. I say this because I am an actor myself and I just give her props for trying.
For what the movie is, its decent, a little gory, but has a great soundtrack and if you watch it not expecting an oscar worthy film, you may like it.
