Entertaining sequel, nothing more
"I Still Know What You Did Last Summer" is a far better sequel than it
has every right to be.
It's been a year since the accidental death of Ben Willis, and Julie
James (Jennifer Love Hewitt) is still tormented with nightmares about
the ordeal. Her schoolwork is suffering as a result, and her roommate
Karla (Brandy) insists she go out and party to forget it. The
nightmares continue, and Julie is a nervous wreck. After Karla wins a
radio giveaway for a free trip to a resort island and hotel, Karla
wants Julie to go with Will Benson, (Matthew Settle) a local college
student with a crush on Julie. Julie wants her old friend Ray, (Freddie
Prinze Jr.) to go, but he doesn't want to leave the old neighborhood.
Forced to go with Will and Karla's boyfriend Tyrell, (Mekhi Phifer) on
the trip. The first night is event-free, but then the staff at the
resort starts popping up dead. Stranded on the island, Julie informs
Karla of her past with Ben Willis, which Karla dismisses as rubbish
until she witnesses the killer first-hand. Ray hears about the
situation on the island, and rushes over to save Julie and her friends
The Good News: Unlike the first movie, this one is the "body count" of
the two. We get a lot more deaths in here, many of them pretty cleverly
done. Here, we get a hook to the neck, a double spear impaling,
hedge-clippers into the stomach, and a boat oar to the side of the
head. Despite all these deaths, the film isn't as gory as you would
believe. Most of the deaths are violent, but the bloodletting is kept
off-screen. The bloodstains are found later, rather than seeing them
formed with the kill. The main thing about this film is that it is a
lot creepier than the first one. The first part is one giant suspense
scene, where we don't really know if Julie is dreaming or seeing
things, and it's all cleverly done so it can be either of them or she
could be actually stalked by the killer. Because of the way that he
dresses, the rain slicker, he is able to get a lot of scenes out of
simply standing in the background. I also really like the ending: going
out with the bang this one has is a great improvement over the similar
ending of the first one. It is a good last jump and is set up
brilliantly and logically. It is also more effective at getting the
scare than the first one, and leaves open the door for an un-filmed
The Bad News: As I mentioned earlier, this film is pretty bloodless in
certain areas. The deaths are violent, but aren't exactly gory. We get
no blood at all during the spear killing, the oar hits off-screen, and
the only killing the least bit bloody is the hedge-clipper killing. I
really hate that trend where killings are bloodless and films are
basically a retread of the earlier films. This "Scream" style of horror
films are among the lowest type of horror film because they take the
convictions of the genre and throw them back to the audience in a
marketable way. I am so glad modern horror films (House of 1,000
Corpses, Cabin Fever, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, etc.) have become famous
and have totally replaced these kinds of movies.
The Final Verdict: "I Still Know What You Did Last Summer" is basically
a horror film for fans of the first one. Besides the one main plot
twist, it introduces nothing of real importance into the series, yet it
still manages to blindly entertain. Here, I wish to use the phrase
"expendable entertainment" for this film: it's a movie that will please
those who see, though those who never do will not be left out in the
Rated R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language, and mild drug use and

It is not quite as good as the first movie (I know what you did last summer), but it is a very solid follow-up. Lower your expectations slightly and you will love it..
triller movie... this full of blood and scary.
awesome movie, really good .
nu am uitat ce ai facut asta vara.
very good movie sequel.
I thought this was an excellent film, definitely worth a watch. It stands up to the original well..
One year after the events from the original Julie(Jennifer Love Hewitt) is
still trying to put her life back together.
Her Room-mate Karla(Brandy) wins a trip for four to the Bahamas, While there
The Fisherman(Muse Watson) shows up and once again begins to kill
The Script from Trey Callaway was horrible and Danny Cannon's Directing was
Freddie Prinze Jr. once again gives a lousy performance but at least this
time his role wasn't as big.
Jack Black has a small role and just might be the most annoying character i
have ever seen.
The movie takes a really bad twist it was so over the top, and made this
flick even worse.
Mekhi Phifer and Jennifer Esposito also star.
Jennifer Esposito like Jennifer Love Hewitt very beautiful and talented but
they both seem to make such bad movies for the most part.
And once again Jennifer Love Hewitt over acts.
The scariest thing about the movie is that it's left open for yet another
I give I Still Know What You Did Last Summer 2/10.
