[Director] Gillespie is there to give fans a poor man's "Scream" and he pulls it off.

This horror movie is too intense for kids.

Antagony & Ecstasy

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 tedious, distinctly by-the-numbers slasher flick.

A reasonably well-made low-end pic that serves as a cautionary tale for callow teens. [Blu-Ray]

A depressingly routine slasher film.

Often feels more like a perfume commercial than a "horror movie".

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.

A smart, sharply drawn genre film with a moral center and a solid cast.

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.

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.

Predictably, the derivative title here is a jumping-off point for another derivative slasher-revenge pic.

Remember all those terrible slasher flicks from the '80s? This could be one of them. It certainly ain't no Scream.

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.
