Yes, "I Know What You Did Last Summer" does seem like some corny teenybopper popcorn flick; but it's not. Believe me, I went into this film with pretty low expectations, but was pleasantly surprised with the level of terror provided! And it's not cheap terror, it's genuine because of the suspense director Jim Gillespie consistently builds.
It's the fourth of July and four friends Julie James (Jennifer Love Hewitt), Ray Bronson (Freddie Prinze Junior), Helen Shivers (Sarah Michelle Gellar), and Barry William Cox (Ryan Phillippe) are celebrating their high school graduation and Helen's beauty pageant win. On their way home they hit a man walking down a curved corner in the road. They panic when they learn he's dead and in hopes of saving their futures, decide to dump the body into the ocean. The four friends make a pact to keep it a secret. It was an accident, but it was one they cannot forget.
Their friendships are ruined and they all leave for college and don't talk to each other; they are all depressed and upset. When Julie returns home for summer vacation there is a letter waiting for her. It reads, "I Know What You Did Last Summer". Frightend, Julie goes to find her old friends for help. Was someone else there that night? They think it's only a prank until a man in a slicker with a hook begins to stalk the four friends and torment them in the most vile and disgusting ways imaginable (dead bodies in their trunks, cutting off their hair in sleep, trying to run them over, etc.
Realizing that if they don't find out who's doing this and get rid of him fast, they'll be dead, they search for answers, all the while receiving even more terrifying threats. It sure is a thrilling ride and there are a remarkable number of points in this movie when you jump in fright and scream!

I Know What You Did Last Summer is a (loose) adaptation of the childrens book, by Lois Duncan. It focuses primarily on the four main characters... intelligent, level headed, heroin Julie James (Jennifer Love Hewitt), her well intentioned, typical nice guy boyfriend Ray Bronson (Freddie Prinze Jr), her best friend the rich and popular beauty queen Helen Shivers (Sarah Michelle Gellar), and Helens rich, macho, handsome football star boyfriend Barry Cox (Ryan Phillippe) The four teens have just graduated high school and are prepared to spend a summer of "immature adolescent decadance" as said by Barry. Things didnt go as planned

On July 4th Helen appeats in the Miss Croaker beauty contest and is crowned queen, much to the excitement of her friends and especially Barry. The four kids decide to celebrate by heading down to a secluded beach for a night of scary stories, drinking and sex, your typical teenage summer night. In what is to be their last decent decision of the movie, they agree Ray is to drive drunken Barrys BMW home that night. Barry stands up through the sunroof, spills alcohol and distracts Ray long enough to hit a crossing man head on. At first they disagree on what to do, call the police, or dump the body. Barry argues that if they come clean theyre dreams will be ruined. His as a football star, Helens as a famous actress, Rays as a writer, and Julie's as a lawyer. Much to Julie's dismay, they agree to dispose of the body in the ocean. They vow never to speak of the incident again.

One year later everythings changed. Julie comes home for the summer (after practically failing out of college in Boston) and recieves an anonymous note from someone claiming they know what happened the previous summer. Panicked, Julie turns to her former best friend Helen for help.

I've watched my fair share of teen horror films, this one, was simply boring. I watched from beginning to end tried my best to get into it and my viewing taste wasn't having it. I'm sure the book was better than the movie (they usually are). The acting was so-so at best, the plot was flat due to the poor execution, and the scare factor was limited. Since I did not watch this movie in 1997 and did not go see it for the star power, my appreciation for the movie won't be there like others. While I like Sarah and Ryan, this movie just missed the cut, in my opinion.

I absolutely love the I Know series, and had no choice but to buy this Blu Ray when it came out, despite already owning the standard def DVD. This is a very surprisingly great transfer and a substantial improvement over the original. Even if you're not goonie googoo over these films, as I am, you'd be well served to make this purchase.

Oh, I blame `Scream'. I mean, who wouldn't. Problem is, `Scream' is borderline genius and actually deserves to exist. Sadly, the world went crazy for people in masks killing teenagers and so we were bombarded with a slew of films dedicated to that very subject. I know we should all feel quite ashamed of ourselves for relishing in this breed of `horror', but there is something about watching pretty people get hacked up that makes us squeal with joy; right?

Or is that just me?

So, `I Know What You Did Last Summer' is actually adapted from a novel. Who knew? I certainly didn't. I just thought it was a rush attempt at capitalizing on the surprise success of that 1996 masterpiece of modern horror and so I think it can, in a way, be forgiven slightly for being less imaginative. That is really one of the biggest issues with this particular film. It really isn't all that clever. The basic premise is kind of lame, when you compare it to that in `Scream' or even the following years `Urban Legends'. `I Know What You Did Last Summer' resorts to a rather weak set up (four high school kids run over a man and ditch his body) and then escalates from there when the man (or so one would assume) comes back to exact revenge. Sadly, the payoff isn't nearly as rewarding as that in the other Slasher films, and so this becomes somewhat of a forgettable entry in the catalog of Slasher films.

The 90's was a scary place for teenagers at the movies. Thankfully, some of those films were smart about it.

The cast is pretty, that's for sure, but it's funny how these Slasher films really killed the careers of the actors involved. I mean, what has anyone in this film done of relevance lately except get divorced from Reese Witherspoon?
