I Know What You Did Last Summer

Jim Gillespie (1997)

18 Certificate


Our Score
Aimed squarely at the teenage TV audience, this stalk-and-slash saga from director Jim Gillespie gives Scream writer Kevin Williamson the chance to revive his favourite psycho-killer clichés. Here, four high-school graduates (played by Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe and Freddie Prinze Jr) cover up a hit-and-run accident, only to have the dark tragedy rear its head a year later when a hook-wielding masked fisherman starts bumping them off. The beautiful photography and nice visual flourishes make this extremely watchable, but Gillespie's chiller nevertheless trades on outdated thrills all the way through to its creak-and-shriek showdown.


Four teenagers accidentally run over a stranger and hide the body rather than inform the authorities, only to find themselves stalked the following year by a shadowy figure who takes great delight in disposing of them in a variety of gruesome ways. Horror, starring Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe, Freddie Prinze Jr and Anne Heche.
