I Still Know What You Did Last Summer

"Weak"

I Still Know What You Did Last Summer Review


Ever since Scream came out in 1996, the teen horror movies have been revived. We've seen some good ones like Scream, I Know What You Did Last Summer, and Scream 2. But like most genres, there are some bad ones. Disturbing Behavior, and Urban Legend both were terrible. I Still Know What You Did Last Summer is kind of in the middle.

The movie stars Jennifer Love Hewitt as Julie James, the teenager who was stalked last summer by the person who she and her friends ran over the summer before that. Shouldn't the movie be called I Still Know What You Did 2 Summers Ago? Anyway, Julie and her roommate Karla (Brandy) win a trip to the Bahamas, even though Julie is still haunted by what happened last summer..

Once there, the murders start occurring. The Gordon's fisherman Ben Willis survived his hand amputation and is back to kill Julie and Ray (Freddie Prinze Jr.) the other survivor last summer. What doesn't make sense is when Willis starts killing people who have nothing to do with the car accident.

This is a really stupid movie and that's really disappointing since I really did enjoy the first one. I'm sure if a storm was occurring on a small island in the Bahamas, Julie would be walking around with her shirt unbuttoned. I'm sure the ending (I don't want to give it away) could really happen. And another thing, why is this movie set in the Bahamas? I think if Kevin Williamson wrote this, it would have been a lot better. Williamson did a great job with the original, which was also scarier. Don't give up on the teen horror genre yet. There is hope with this year's release of The Faculty and next year's Killing Mrs. Tingle. [Alas.... -Ed.]

Well, not so horrible...
