No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
A smart, sharply drawn genre film with a moral center and a solid cast.
Teasing and taut, I Know What You Did Last Summer is a teen horror flick with a different kind of kick to it.
The payoff is less effective. It involves several teen-scream modules, such as the $1.98 Startle Effect; the Hand on the Shoulder; and the Is He Dead Yet? gambit.
Remember all those terrible slasher flicks from the '80s? This could be one of them. It certainly ain't no Scream.
[Director] Gillespie is there to give fans a poor man's "Scream" and he pulls it off.
It can't even lay claim to the thin joy of being a tremendously bad and trashy wallow in the gutter. It's just... useless.
A reasonably well-made low-end pic that serves as a cautionary tale for callow teens. [Blu-Ray]
O ponto forte de 'Pânico' é o calcanhar de Aquiles de 'Eu Sei o Que Vocês Fizeram no Verão Passado': em ambos os casos, o roteiro de Kevin Williamson.
while any cod in the audience will undoubtedly shiver at the sight of a murderer in fisherman's garb, it looks pretty silly to us land-lubbers.
Where Scream was meant to be a send-up of the teen slasher genre, Summer is a serious example of just how effective these movies can be if they're well-written, directed and acted.
