Tom returns to his hometown on the tenth anniversary of the Valentine's night massacre that claimed the lives of 22 people. Instead of a homecoming, Tom finds himself suspected of committing the murders, and it seems like his old flame is the only one that believes he's innocent.
The murderous fisherman with a hook is back to once again stalk the two surviving teens, Julie and Ray, who had left him for dead, as well as cause even more murder and mayhem, this time at a posh island resort.
Jennifer Love Hewitt,
Freddie Prinze Jr.,

The movie had to be re-cut five times in order to achieve an R-rating. Most significant cuts include:
graphic sexual activity during the climactic orgy sequence;
The death of a character named Annette The originally scripted scene showed her having her throat slowly pushed onto a pane of glass. The scene was filmed and very brutal, done all in one graphic cut. However, she shot was later replaced with her character's head split open in the front door. That scene was still trimmed heavily. In unrated versions the top of her head erupts and a splash of blood flies across the doorjamb.
Rod's death had more blood.
Timmy's death was an on screen kill that featured gruesome spurting blood.
A character's death at the climatic orgy was nixed for time and MPAA constraints. A male character's throat was slashed open.
I went to see this movie with the idea it would be total crap. For that thought: I was not totally disappointed, but because I had that thought the movie was also enjoyable in some weird ways.
The story is about a killer who is slashing virgins from a local high school. After 'Scream', 'I Know What You Did Last Summer' and 'Urban Legend' it is not the most original idea. The movie rips all kind of ideas from those movies. The whole "slashing high school students"-concept from 'Scream', a visit to a very quiet place from 'I Know What You Did Last Summer', a scene with a certain aggressive artifact hitting a door from 'The Shining'. It didn't bother me much because it was all ridiculous anyway. All the clichés from the movies above, the same kind of characters, a revealed secret, and of course the killer you "never thought" it would be.
Like I said the whole thing was kind of ridiculous. There were scenes I really enjoyed because of the stupid events on screen. One of the scenes involves a whole group trying to lose their virginity at the same time on some kind of party. You think it is nonsense, which it is, but scenes around that event are quite funny. I had the idea it was made that "stupid" on purpose to give the movie some kind of comic release, but my guess is there were better ways to do that. The comedy in a movie like 'Scream 3' works better, although the movie wasn't that much better. In this movie sometimes it succeeds, if that was the goal of the scenes. If it wasn't, I still enjoyed that parts so it didn't matter much anyway. If you are going to watch it, just think you will see absolutely nothing at all, and you might enjoy it a little.
