Personal Quotes (1)

[in 1997] A movie loosely based upon my novel, "I Know What You Did Last Summer", opened in theaters around the country [I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997)]. I was ecstatic until I settled into a theater seat with my box of popcorn and discovered that Hollywood had turned my teenage suspense story into a slasher film. The setting had been changed from the mountains of New Mexico to a fishing village on the East Coast, so an insane fisherman, who wasn't in my book, could decapitate my characters with an ice hook. The first thing I did after leaving the theater was phone our daughter Kerry and warn her not to let the grandchildren see it.
