I Know What You Did Last Summer | Rotten Tomatoes (1) Rosalind Bentley Minneapolis Star Tribune Even though the murders are gruesome, the film is not scary, nor is it clever. We've seen this many times before, but with different titles and different stars. Rated: 1.5/5 Jan 26, 2022 Full Review I Know What You Did Last Summer | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Chris Stuckmann ChrisStuckmann.com A cheesy and sometimes melodramatic slasher film that is certainly not one of the best, but... It's directed better than a lot of the slasher films in recent years. Rated: B- Oct 16, 2020 Full Review I Know What You Did Last Summer | Rotten Tomatoes (3) John Petrakis Chicago Tribune Wastes more opportunities than it does teenagers. Rated: 2/4 Mar 28, 2019 Full Review I Know What You Did Last Summer | Rotten Tomatoes (4) Patrick Cavanaugh The Wolfman Cometh The core cast are undeniable talents and the genuinely surprising story helps keep you engaged in relatively redundant slasher tropes. Rated: 4/5 Sep 24, 2023 Full Review I Know What You Did Last Summer | Rotten Tomatoes (5) Brian Rowe InSession Film I Know What You Did Last Summer is a welcome hit of nostalgia that still works better than it should, the amazing cast particularly elevating the material enough to still make it a worthwhile rewatch, especially in the weeks of October. May 3, 2023 Full Review I Know What You Did Last Summer | Rotten Tomatoes (6) Dan DiNicola The Daily Gazette (Schenectady, NY) This is a fun, energetic and scary movie by Jim Gillespie.

Kalin D The stupidity leading up to the conclusion really made this hard to take seriously. A sober ending with a clear resolution would have been a lot more respectful to the audience. Rated 3/5 Stars • Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/01/24 Full Review James B This film doesn't follow the book and it can be predictable but it has few scares and it does have it's suspenseful moments. Rated 3.5/5 Stars • Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 06/15/24 Full Review Randi C I don't hate it, seen it quite a few times. It is a fun movie even though it's terrible. Ive always just felt like this movie was put together with little to no effort and just thrown in our faces as some kind of lesser rival to Scream.For some reason, the powers that be always have to have 2 of everything so they can compete. Whether it be with movies, singers, bands, TV shows, etc... There's always 2 of whatever. I feel like that is the entire point of this movies existence. Rated 2/5 Stars • Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/18/24 Full Review Flick F I Know What You Did Las Summer is such a classic horror mystery for a reason, there is great gory kills, some good jump scares, and intense well made chase scenes. Also the movie had a really good killer reveal. I Know What You Did Last Summer is an amazing classic which had me stumped the first time I watched it. Rated 4.5/5 Stars • Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 12/15/23 Full Review Nicolly A não teve o molho. não me envolvi com os personagens, não me importei com eles. não gostei do assassino, sem carisma nenhum. Rated 2/5 Stars • Rated 2 out of 5 stars 12/11/23 Full Review Flick F I Know What You Did Last Summer is nothing special. It is very similar to the movie Scream and not only does the movie go through the same beats over and over, but the reveal is terrible. The gore in this movie makes it stand out having some pretty good kills. Rated 3/5 Stars • Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/13/24 Full Review Read all reviews
