Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie isn't appropriate for kids. The graphic violence is bloody and intense, as are the stuttering, strobe-flash digital editing tricks. There's also lots of profanity and drinking. To stay in the loop on more movies like this, you can sign up for weekly Family Movie Night emails.
Is It Any Good?
The best laugh (and practically the only laugh) in this crummy sequel is the name of the production company: Original Films. The straight-to-video cash-in is pretty much a remake of the initial 1997 I Know What You Did Last Summer, with a dumb supernatural twist that succeeds at nothing but making you appreciate how good the first one was (and it wasn't even good to begin with).
While the first two movies had "whodunit" murder-mystery aspects with a feeble moral (always be honest about it if you've accidentally caused a death, or something like that), any attempt to deduce the marauder's identity here is ruined by the surprise at the climax that plunges the plot into strictly paranormal, ghost-story territory, where anything goes.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
