Notebook Reviews: I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER

Jim Gillespie – 1997.

I Know What You Did Last Summer is an enjoyable entry into the slasher movie stable. It’s no Halloween, but this has the requisite thrills and spills to entertain for an hour and a half.

An update of the type of horror movies from the late ’70s and ’80s, I Know What You Did Last Summer is part of the post-Scream slasher renaissance. The young cast – Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe and Freddie Prinze Jr. – all give good performances and they make sure that their characters meet all the genre archetypes.

You’ll know what you’re getting going in, but I Know What You Did Last Summer is solidly crafted entertainment which delivers exactly what you want from this type of movie.
