Review I feel like I've just taken a time trip back to the '80s. Remember when slasher films were all the rage, and each year brought forth the dreaded specter of another Friday the 13th, Halloween, and/or A Nightmare on Elm Street (not to mention such other, notable titles as Prom Night and Silent Night, Deadly Night)? Well, they're back again, and stronger than ever. Scream started this recent wave, and its $100+ million box office gross has ensured a host of sequels and inferior copycats. The Wishmaster was arguably the first. I Know What You Did Last Summer, brought to the screen by neophyte director Jim Gillespie, is the second, and there are many more to come...There is one minor aspect of the plot that elevates I Know What You Did Last Summer above the level of a typical '80s slasher flick -- it has an interesting subtext. I'm referring to the way the lives and friendships of these four individuals crumble in the wake of their accident. Guilt, confusion, and doubt build in them until they can no longer stand to be with each other or look at themselves in the mirror. Sadly, this potentially-fascinating element of the movie is dismissed quickly to facilitate a higher body count. And, as I said before, a few extra deaths can only make a slasher movie better, right?

Review The best shot in this film is the first one. Not a good sign. ``I Know What You Did Last Summer'' begins dramatically, with the camera swooping high above a dark and stormy sea, and then circling until it reveals a lonely figure sitting on a cliff overlooking the surf. The shot leads us to anticipate dread, horror and atmospheric gloominess, but, alas, it is not to be...The ads make much of the fact that ``I Know What You Did Last Summer'' is from ``the creators of "Scream." '' That means both scripts are by Kevin Williamson. My bet is that he hauled this one out of the bottom drawer after ``Scream'' passed the $100 million mark. The neat thing about ``Scream'' was that the characters had seen a lot of horror films, were familiar with all the conventions, and knew they were in a horror-type situation. In ``I Know,'' there's one moment like that (as the two women approached an ominous house, they observe ominously, ``Jodie Foster tried this ... ''). But for the rest of the movie they're blissfully unaware of the dangers of running upstairs when pursued, walking around at night alone, trying to investigate the situation themselves, going onto seemingly empty fishing boats, etc...After the screening was over and the lights went up, I observed a couple of my colleagues in deep and earnest conversation, trying to resolve twists in the plot. They were applying more thought to the movie than the makers did. A critic's mind is a terrible thing to waste.
