Undoubtedly one of the most memorable teen slasher movies.

It's hard to believe 'I know what you did last summer' was made over two decades ago. This classic teenage slasher is still one of the most memorable movies in the genre.

Although a slasher, the film has substance. The very idea of what these teenagers are going through, makes one wonder: what would I have done if I were in that situation? The event leading to the revenge killings can so easily happen to anyone of us. Its believable and quite honestly a daunting thought. What would you have done?

What happens after the accident, off course is pure slasher material, but it still has substance. 'I know what you did last summer' is a creepy film with well crafted suspense. Naturally, there are a number of false scares and some credibility issues and coincidences, but in general this was thoroughly enjoyable. The performances were very good and the film itself has style and from the opening moments just felt memorable. The title alone is enough to make you want to watch it out of curiosity.

Reasonable teen slasher movie

During the 4th of July holidays, four teens Julie James (Jennifer Love Hewitt), Helen Shivers (Sarah Michelle Gellar), Barry William Cox (Ryan Phillippe) and Ray Bronson (Freddie Prinze Jr.) are driving after drinking on the beach. Barry distracts Ray as he runs over a guy on a desolate road in the middle of the night. They argue convincing Ray to dump the body. Max (Johnny Galecki) drives by but Julie lies to him. The body has a hook for a hand but he's not actually dead as he makes a final grab at Helen. The friends agree to keep it a secret after dumping him in the harbor. Then one year later, Julia comes back to town from college and she gets a note with "I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER!" Helen is working for her sister Elsa and broken up with the jerk Barry. Barry suspects Max as the one who wrote the note. Ray is now a fisherman following his father's footsteps.

The movie has some of the best young actors of Hollywood at the time. Kevin Williamson works over the script. It's a pretty simple teen slasher movie. It has some psychological aspects and mystery of the note. In the end, it's slash and splat. It works well and gets a couple of passable scares. It never really gets truly gritty or realistic. It's just an old fashion slasher flick. It's all about the old fashion 80s kills.

Botched slasher from one-hit wonder Kevin Williamson

I borrowed I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER from a friend. I had been tempted to actually buy it when I saw it in the shops but I'm so glad I waited now, as it turned out to be one of the most boring hour-and-a-half's that I have ever sat through. Maybe the film wasn't bad in terms of production, but it's certainly a below average slasher film, lacking none of the extravagance or finesse of the '80s slashers (hardly any blood is shed, the murders are all quick and cut away from the gore). The film could easily have been cut down half an hour, which would not have harmed it - in fact it might have been better.

The cast is full of American teenagers, a typical staple of the slasher film, but none of the actors and actresses are up to scratch. Jennifer Love Hewitt is more adept at showing her cleavage than emoting, while Sarah Michelle Gellar (star of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER) is an annoyingly whiny character. Ryan Phillipe is okay as the drunkard Billy, while the character of Ray remains largely undeveloped (and it's difficult to fathom his sudden role as an action hero at the finale). Anne Heche also turns up, in a thankfully small role.

The murderer is a generic villain, and not in the least bit scary. Candyman used a hook for murders years before this, so where's the originality? There is none. The music is good in the stalking sequences but too full of hip pop songs (sadly commonplace these days). A lot of the film is pretty by-the-numbers stuff, which looks nice but lacks substance. The chase scenes are the only worthwhile parts of the film, and even these aren't too exciting. I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER is an example of the modern horror film, clichéd, derivative, and unfortunately not very exciting at all. A botched attempt, which proved that Kevin Williamson really was a one shot wonder.
