I STILL KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER

I Still Know What You Did Last Summer Movie Review

Having escaped the hook swinging fisherman in I Know What You Did Last Summer, Julie James (Jennifer Love Hewitt) joins friends for a vacation to a remote island--where it appears the fisherman has followed them. The first film in the series was sort of unique, and was actually a fairly decent horror film; as is often the case, however, the sequel has a difficult time recapturing whatever it was that made the original enjoyable. I believe the acting is the first thing that throws this film--Brandy, Freddie Prinze Jr., Matthew Settle, and Jennifer Esposito are all here, and each is just bad in this film. That said, no other actor in this film can touch the absolute acting ineptness of one Mekhi Phifer (Dawn of the Dead)...not even this guy...

Yes, that's Jack Black

Once you get past the bad acting and questionable script, there actually is some stuff to enjoy about the film. Jennifer Love Hewitt is good in her role as leading lady, Bill Cobbs is creepy, and we get appearances (albeit short ones) from John Hawkes and Michael Bryan French. They attempt to throw in a bit of a twist at the end, but if you're paying at least a little bit of attention to the film at this point you will see it coming. Fortunately, some of the death scenes are gruesome enough to keep you going. This movie has that classic 90's horror feel to it, and while not a bad movie, it comes off as more a direct to video film than the follow up to one of the most well known horror flicks of that decade.
