I Know What You Did Last Summer Reviews

March 28, 2019
Wastes more opportunities than it does teenagers.
March 28, 2019
A dreadful mad slasher film that works neither as a thriller nor as a comic commentary on the genre.
March 28, 2019
All the scary, screaming, sniggering fun continues here, aided by swell performances from Hewitt and Gellar in particular... an appearance from the always groovy Anne Heche, and the crisp, crackerjack direction of Jim Gillespie.
March 28, 2019
A poorly conceived 1997 thriller with plenty of empty references.

I Know What You Did Last Summer is gory enough for the devotees and has story enough for everyone else.

It doesn't live up to the hype it's received, but I Know What You Did Last Summer is still the best Halloween scare out there right now.

The story has more holes than the bodies do, but the shocks are efficient, and Party of Five's Jennifer Love Hewitt knows how to scream with soul.

Just clever enough to rise above the usual fodder, its appealing cast and technical confidence go a long way toward paving over narrative and character lapses.

There are shoals of red herrings, lots of dumb 'Behind you!'-type scares, and not a scrap of imagination.

...competent but uninspired...
January 22, 2002
A smart, sharply drawn genre film with a moral center and a solid cast.
February 14, 2001
...fun, energetic and fairly scary.

Like Williamson, Jim Gillespie, the director, respects the conventions of the genre.

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

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.

The characters aren't interesting enough for us to be scared for them.

The best shot in this film is the first one. Not a good sign.

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