Product Description

Product Description

Celebrating the end of high school, teenagers Julie, Helen, Ray and Barry get drunk and drive off in Barry's car. They quickly sober up when they collide with the body of a man in the road. Not wishing to be questioned by the police, they agree to dump the body in the sea. However, the man is still alive, so the foursome finish the job they have started and beat him to death. The friends agree not to mention what has occurred, and go their separate ways. However, a year later they are all being stalked and receiving messages from someone who knows what they did last summer, and wants revenge...

From Amazon.co.uk

Just what the world needs, another riff on that post-Psycho horror cliché: the slasher movie. In this version, which considerably dumbs down the Lois Duncan book, the bad guy chases naughty teenagers with a hook, all the while dressed as a dark version of the Gorton's fisherman. They seem to have killed someone in a car accident while out partying, and a price must be paid. Nothing new is added to the genre by I Know What You Did Last Summer, though it would be unfair not to note that this does have some scary moments. That is about all it has, because as much as this wanted to be another Scream, it hasn't the heart or the script. It does, however, have the requisite cast of small-screen stars (including Party of Five's Jennifer Love Hewitt and Buffy herself, Sarah Michelle Gellar) to have snagged box-office success, spawning a sequel. --Rochelle O'Gorman

Four friends lives are ruined when they hit a pedestrian on a lonely coastal road and cover it up by throwing the body into the sea. One year later they start to receive threatening letters from someone who knows what they did last summer and is not happy about it!

Based very loosely on a 1973 proto-young-adult-fiction classic by Lois Duncan, 1997's I Know What You Did Last Summer is now rapidly heading towards the 20 year mark and is about to get a remake. The general consensus amongst grumpy old school horror fans is that the 90s sucked and the main reason they sucked was films like this. But from the moment Type O Negative's monstrous cover of Summer Breeze starts cranking out of the speakers I Know What You Did Last Summer seems pretty awesome to me. There's not much gore but the tension is nicely handled. The coastal setting is very atmospheric and there's plenty of goofy cheese on offer. The scene where Sarah Michelle Geller travels down a main street that seems to be populated by menacing old men who brought their sou'westers from the same place as the killer even manages to be gloriously goofy, atmospheric and surprisingly tense at the same time. Ryan Philippe is ok as Barry, the arrogant rich kid who's drinking causes the accident that sets things in motion. Freddie Prinze Jnr, Ray, frowns and pouts as the troubled nice guy. Geller does a good job of turning local beauty queen, Helen, into a fairly rounded character. And Jennifer Love Hewett seems to spend the entire movie squeezed into a succession of of tops that are at least two sizes to small, as Julie the female lead. Cute girls, a good soundtrack and a hook wielding killer, what's not to like?

The reality is that teen horror never gets respect. Not even from fans of teen horror.

I Know what you did last summer is a really clever slasher film. You might think it's going to be cheesy but its not, it actually quite original and nothing like Scream apart from the fact that people die. The villan who is a fisherman, i thought was not going to be very scary or as creepy as other horror villains, but was suprisingly haunting. The acting wasn't the best but you couldn't really expect much more from the cast of actors. But I do give them credit as they did in some scenes seem genuinely terrified and they do make you want them to stay alive, which is all you really need them to do. The pnly thing rong with the film which doesn't really matter is the fact that it doesn't matter if the victim is sprinting away from the villain and the villain is just strolling he always seems just two steps behind. Overall great film and some jump scenes.

Format: DVD
As far as teenage horror films go, 'I Know What You Did Last Summer' tops the lot in my opinion. This 1997 classic spawned a good squeal, and less successful third, but, as is so often the case, the first is the best in the trilogy.

On a Summer's night in 96, four high school mates enjoy a drive to celebrate the end of education, only to have their worlds turned upside down when they run over and kill a man. Shock and sheer panic overcomes them, and they decide to dump the man's body into the canal instead of going to the police, that becomes their second big mistake.

Whilst it looks like they have got away with the murder, one year later, Julie (Jennifer Love Hewitt) receives a mysterious note which says ''I Know What You Did Last Summer''. Unnerved by this, she tracks down her former three friends to inform them about it. What follows is a bloodbath, with a mysterious fisherman figure wielding a hook killing people off. The plot thickens, as the two girls (Hewitt and Sarah Michelle Gellar) involved in the hit and run begin investigating what really took place during that fateful Summer night.

From the start and finish, I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, and have watched it many times since. The plot is original, and was based on a book by Lois Duncan of the same name. On screen, it's an excellent suspense thriller, with a good mix of characters, a well thought out plot and a great soundtrack. If you want to know what happened last Summer, pick it up.

Note: My copy of the DVD is very basic, with literally no special features, and although a film of this kind serves a lavish DVD treatment, it's the movie that counts, and this one rates a solid five stars.

can't believe that this film is 18 years old but I enjoyed it just as much after all these years as what I did when I first saw it

If you're expecting originality you'll be disappointed. If you're expecting a faithful adaptation of the superb book this is based on you'll be let down. If you just want to sit down to enjoy a entertaining movie, that is well-acted (the supporting cast (Bridgette Wilson in particular) do as good a job as Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Philippe & Freddie Prince Jr.) you've come to the right page.

Four friends run over a man & dump his dead (?) body into the ocean after their drunken 4th July celebrations. One year later almost to the day, one of the friends receives a letter & the game is on. As it draws to 4th July the letters escalate to hair cutting, disappearing bodies & hit and runs.

I must mention that the main `stalk n slash' scene is gripping, edge-of-your-seat stuff. I wouldn't really call I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER a slasher though; it's more of a suspense thriller. The film focuses revenge.

The film relies on tension & building suspense instead of blood and gore, like classics such as HALLOWEEN. I'm not saying that I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER is on that level, but it is well done. The film is better then it's chief comparison SCREAM because it seems more realistic.

One observation; I'm quite sure that the film had an 18 certificate in cinemas, while the DVD is certified as a 15. This makes me wonder over missing footage. I don't want to give anything away, but the killer has collected newspaper articles that detail something that seemingly has very little to do with the given plot. Just little things like that are winding me up. It doesn't spoil the plot or anything like that, so it isn't really important I guess.

Also, Anne Hecht has a seemingly pointless supporting role. So where has any left out footage gone? It's not included as an extra. Are they going to bring out 50 DVD editions of this or something?
