The characters are never really more than stereotypes... but as the body count begins to mount, you feel their terror build.

Until it gives up at the two thirds mark, this is a decent companion piece to Scream, but the final act needs to be taken to with a meathook.

Though it flies in the face of credibility and becomes downright silly by its end, I Know What You Did Last Summer knows its way around the rules of the popular horror-film genre

My bet is that (scriptwriter Kevin Williamson) hauled this one out of the bottom drawer after Scream passed the $100 million mark.
