‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’: Looking Back on the Slasher Classic 20 Years Later

‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’: Looking Back on the Slasher Classic 20 Years Later
With Halloween quickly approaching, horror fans everywhere are in search of the next great scary movie. While 2017 has been a phenomenal year for the genre -- with standouts like Split, Annabelle: Creation, It and Get Out -- audiences need only to look back on the late ’90s slasher era for some of horror’s best thrills.

The genre was more popular than ever thanks to the colossal success of Scream in 1996, with almost every major film studio attempting to recreate that same magic. Soon, everything from Urban Legends to a new installment of Halloween with Jamie Lee Curtis followed. Between 1996 and 2000, the horror genre was at an all-time high. So high, it almost became hard to keep track of them all.

But one slasher film in particular stands out among the rest: I Know What You Did Last Summer, which came out 20 years ago on Oct. 17, 1997.

It’s not all that surprising, given the screenplay

Scream Season 2 Episode 13 Review: Halloween Special

  • TVfanatic
So much for the Scream franchise finally leaving a killer alive. Kieran lasted all of about 30 seconds. 

We still don't know who killed him, but we did get a fun Halloween special out of the deal. 

Sure it was a little predictable, but there were some surprises, too. 

Scream Season 2 Episode 13 felt more like a TV remake of I Still Know What You Did Last Summer than an installment of the Scream franchise. 

The group was stranded on an island in a storm during the offseason, there was a fisherman, Gina arrived late just like Ray did, and shears are close enough to a hook. 

It was clearly intentional, but you have to love that Noah referenced every movie from Friday the 13th to And Then There Were None with no mention of the franchise they were spoofing. 

It's like the killer is combining these two legends into one brand new murder spree.

Box Office Democracy: Blair Witch

  • Comicmix
When I first saw The Blair Witch Project in 1999 it was the most scared I had ever been in a theater with the exception of having to leave the theater during Edward Scissorhands when I was six years old. A lot contributed to my enjoyment of that film: found footage was new and exciting to me (and most of America) at that time, the marketing campaign treated it as real footage from a real event and that was very captivating even though anyone who waited until the credits would know it was a movie, and the limited information they gave the viewer made everything that happened just a little more terrifying. Blair Witch desperately tries to recapture the magic of the original film and while the resulting film is reasonably creepy to watch it doesn’t quite get there because movie like this are much closer to the norm now.

5 Other Movie Franchises That Crashed Onto Television

  • Cinelinx
News this week came in that the final planned Divergent Series movie would be skipping the theaters and go direct to television/DVD. It’s a rare move for such a major studio franchise to make, and it got me to thinking about other movie series that fizzled and did the same. Come inside to check out a history of downward sliding franchises!

If I come off sounding a bit harsh about all this, it’s mostly due to the fact that it’s such a bizarre situation. It’s been awhile since a studio franchise had to dropped down to direct-to-television and it’s not a good thing. Sure, Lionsgate is trying to spin the information that it’s part of a planned way to jumpstart a spin-off TV series...but the reality is this isn’t how they wanted The Divergent Series to end.

It’s a failure,

"John Wick" Producers Unleash "Smoke"

"John Wick" and "Sicario" producers Thunder Road are assembling the action thriller "Smoke on the Water" which Basil Iwanyk and Kent Kubena will produce.

The script by Trey Callaway ("I Still Know What You Did Last Summer") and Rick Parks ("Ever After") deals with the worlds of offshore boat racing, high-tech open water drug trafficking and the so-called 'nautical narcotic highway' from Cuba to Key West.

The film has more of a "Fast and Furious" than "Sicario"-style tone of energetic and fun action, and will reportedly make good use of the still cinematically untapped world of Cuba as a filming location.

Thunder Road is currently developing "Gang Story" with Liam Neeson, "A Star is Born" with Bradley Cooper and "Splinter Cell" with Tom Hardy.

Here's ABC Family's '13 Nights of Halloween' Lineup

ABC Family has announced the full lineup for its annual "13 Nights of Halloween" celebration, and its offerings of both kid- and adult-friendly fare signify that it's already beginning its transition into its upcoming rebranded network, Freeform.

The schedule includes perennial favorites like "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows -- Part 1," "Hocus Pocus," and "The Addams Family," which appeal to tweens and teens alike, along with flicks to attract a younger crowd, including "Frankenweenie," "Monsters University," and "Toy Story Of Terror!"

But the more-adult movies -- aimed at that so-called "becomer" demographic of viewers in their late 20s and early 30s -- begin late at night, and wouldn't have been caught dead on ABC Family's schedule before. These new flicks -- including Johnny Depp's "Sleepy Hollow," "I Know What You Did Last Summer," and the original "Poltergeist" -- clearly signify the shift to Freeform, and should hopefully attract the audience that the network craves.

PS4 exclusive ‘Until Dawn’ is coming August this year

PS4 exclusive scare ‘em up, Until Dawn, will be released on Tuesday August 25th in the Us, with the European release following a few days later on the 28th. Little has been revealed regarding Supermassive Games’ PS4 exclusive lately, but PlayStation Blog has today dropped the release dates, as well as a few more juicy pieces of information.

Most exciting (for me, anyway) is the news that Peter Stormare has officially joined the cast for the game. You might remember Mr. Stormare from his roles in Jurassic Park: The Lost World (he was a bad guy), Fargo (he was a bad guy), Arrow (he was a bad guy), and The Big Lebowski (he was a nihilist, and they don’t care about anything). One of the great character actors of our time, Peter Stormare will surely be an interesting addition to the cast. And probably a bad guy. Featuring

Why 1998 Was the Best Year In Film History

Why 1998 Was the Best Year In Film History
All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century. Check here for a complete list of our essays. Just one glance at the Oscar nominees for 1998 might make it seem less a questionable choice for “best year in film” — and more an insane one. Instead of a 1974 – The Godfather II, The Conversation, Chinatown, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, etc – or even a 1994, where Shawshank, Quiz Show, and Pulp Fiction lost to Gump – you choose a year where the Oscars would allow Roberto Benigni to climb atop both the figurative and literal chairs of the Shrine? Fine, step away from the Oscars. Would you still celebrate a year that saw not one, but two movies about asteroids threatening the Earth? A year that saw such scars carved across cinematic history as Patch Adams, My Giant, Stepmom, and Krippendorf’s Tribe? It bears repeating: Krippendorf’S Tribe?

11 stars of classic '90s teen movies: Where are they now?

11 stars of classic '90s teen movies: Where are they now?
Charlie Lyne's documentary Beyond Clueless harks back to the classic teen movies that shaped the '90s.

Featuring narration from The Craft's Fairuza Balk (and with clips of Robin Tunney, Devon Sawa and co), it made us feel a sudden pang of nostalgia and sent us on our own trip down memory lane to find out where they - and the rest of the '90s teen movie crew - are now.

So, here are 11 stars from some of our favourite '90s teen movies, and what they've gone on to do since:

1. Devon Sawa - Idle Hands (1999)

Dreamy Devon Sawa starred as lazy stoner Anton Tobias - who turns mass murderer after his hand becomes possessed - in the horror comedy Idle Hands.

He went on to play teenage prophet of doom Alex Browning in Final Destination (2000), and appeared as similarly unstable Stan in Eminem's controversial music

Ready to feel old? 'I Know What You Did Last Summer' is getting a remake
(Cbr) After nearly 17 years, Sony Pictures still knows what you did last summer. According to Deadline, the studio reaching back into the ’90s with a reboot of the 1997 slasher film "I Know What You Did Last Summer." Written by Scream’s Kevin Williamson and based on Lois Duncan’s 1973 novel of the same name, the original followed a group of friends — Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe and Freddie Prinze Jr. — who accidentally strike, and apparently kill, a fisherman while driving home from a party. They dispose of the body, only to be picked off afterward by a mysterious murderer. A theatrical sequel "I Still Know What You Did Last Summer" was released the next year, followed in 2006 by the direct-to-video "I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer." For the new film, "Oculus" writers Mike Flanagan and Jeff Howard will reportedly go back to the source material.

Let's Cast the 'I Know What You Did Last Summer' Reboot!

Let's Cast the 'I Know What You Did Last Summer' Reboot!
Who is the new Jennifer Love Hewitt? Who is her Freddie Prinze Jr.?

We'll always know what you did last summer*. Because Sony won’t let us forget.

Deadline recently reported that the studio is rebooting I Know What You Did Last Summer, the 1997 slasher film about a group of college kids (Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Freddie Prinze Jr. and Ryan Phillippe) who cover up their hit-and-run, only to be stalked and slayed by the very person they thought they killed.

Now our ultimate dream cast for this reboot is present day J.Love, Smg, Freddie Prinze, and Ryan P. playing the same roles they did two decades ago (most are available), but since that definitely won’t happen, we brainstormed a few suggestions:

What Every '90s Kid Needs to See in the 'I Know What You Did Last Summer' Reboot

Those of us who look back on the nostalgic '90s with fondness did one giant eye-roll in reaction to the news that a reboot of the '97 horror quasi-classic "I Know What You Did Last Summer" is in the works.

Yes, it's too soon. No, we shouldn't be surprised.

Since we have no control over what Hollywood does (or doesn't do), we thought it best to put what needs to be in the reboot out for all the Internet to see. (That way, it's a matter of public record.)

So listen up, Hollywood. Here's what the children of the '90s need to see in an "I Still Know What You Did Last Summer" reboot. Otherwise, we're coming for you.

Paper Notes

One of the biggest problems with modern horror is its (usually clunky) inclusion of texts, emails, Facebook, Twitter, and IMs, all of which instantly date the movie.

Sony Pictures Are Rebooting ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’

They were one of the most successful horror series of films from the tail end of the 1990s, and now Sony Pictures are looking to revive the I Know What You Did Last Summer movies for modern audiences.

The films, which started in 1997 with I Know What You Did Last Summer, before spawning sequels I Still Know What You Did Last Summer and the direct-to-dvd hit I’LL Always Know What You Did Last Summer as recently as 2006, were hugely successful and starred the likes of Sarah Michelle Gellar, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Ryan Phillippe and Freddie Prinze, Jr.

The story, adapted from a 1970s novel by Scream writer Kevin Williamson, revolved around a group of high school students who are involved in a hit and run accident late one summer’s evening. Believing that the man they run over died, the students go about everyday life, only to discover that

They’re Remaking I Know What You Did Last Summer Because They Hate Us

I remember sitting in our town’s cheap theater watching I Know What You Did Last Summer; I was scared out of my mind. It didn’t help that my friend and I got in to the R-rated flick with the help of his irresponsible uncle. That was back in 1997, just shy of twenty years ago. Teen slashers were all the rage as you will recall after Wes Craven’s Scream in 1996; so many imitators came after and I Know What You Did Last Summer is no exception.

I was a fan of the series, hell I even have the trilogy on DVD that includes I Still Know What You Did Last Summer and the abysmal I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer, but even I’m throwing a flag on the field for this one. Per Deadline Sony Pictures has already hired Oculus writer/director Mike Flanagan
