 Plot: four young lives are threatened by a paranoid. Their case seems to relate to an accident that caused the previous summer by hitting a passer with their car. Then they made the mistake of throwing his body overboard wanting so to divulge information regarding the incident. But someone seems to knows what you did last summer …

The revival of the slasher may be due mostly to the ' Scream ', however there were 2-3 more similar teen horror films early in the second half of the 90s entitled reference, enhancing boost that gave Craven's film. "I Know What You Did Last Summer ' of 1997 is one of them. You don't need to stay at burying of critics for the film in question. Anyway this little would employ its contributors, given its yperepitychimenis performance at the box office with $ 125 million worldwide.

So focusing our attention in case we find more of the same, i.e. the well-known company young people threatened by the murderous intent of a manic. Motivation of his actions seem to be revenge for the accident that caused the 4 young, hitting him with their car one evening as they returned from a party. In fact thrown overboard trying to obliterate his tracks and agreed not to speak to anyone about the tragic event. A year later, the day of celebration of American 4 July at which time the accident occurred, the 4 friends who met again in the city of ' crime ' will initially accept dire warnings from someone who "knows what they did last summer" and then become beneficiaries of the murderous fury of premeditation. His weapon … the hook!

Horror Trivia

The film was shot in 50 days and is loosely based on the homonymous novel of 1973 by American author Lois Duncan.

The screenplay is written by Kevin Williamson who edited the script of ' Scream '. In fact it was written before ' Scream ' but failed to sell it except when Columbia Pictures by seeing the huge success of the film Craven decided to promote it. It is not as well-written as the Scream but a nice Subversion to the final climax of suspense shows inspiration of Williamson even at the last minute. The suspense is certainly not missing from the project. Many clichés of slashers appear in films such as horror story around the campfire, the sudden appearances of people, exaggerated strength of evil etc. They do not bother as the timid in several spots directed by Jim Gillepsie (D-Tox, Venom). The choice of hook as lethal instrument prepares for big slaughter but unfortunately the portrayal of killer is discreet – probably and producers to put their hand here. Some non-plausible scenes such as the disappearance in time dt of a cadaver periloysmenoy with crabs from a trunk in broad daylight cause little resentment but in general the severity overrides atopimatwn.

Fortunately the young actors proved sufficient for the requirements of the film and it is no coincidence that some of them continued their career in a similar style films. A positive feature is the rapid pace of the film, eventually seen enjoyably, exhibits at least with good company and the necessary feast (for how many movies we have said this huh?). His impact was not negligible. The sequels and films parody trying to implicitly declare diakwmwdisoyn the intense interest of horror together (especially of young ages) for the project.
