  1. It's killer, dude! [17 October 1997, p. 52]

    A polished genre piece with superior fright elements.

    Despite an inordinately complicated third-act resolution, it's head-and-shoulders above most so-called suspense films.
  4. Though it flies in the face of credibility and becomes downright silly by its end, I Know What You Did Last Summer knows its way around the rules of the popular horror-film genre.
  5. The screenplay by Kevin Williamson ("Scream") keeps the lighting low and the tension high, though a bit more wit would have helped.

    Predictably, the derivative title here is a jumping-off point for another derivative slasher-revenge pic. [17 October 1997, p.5D]

    The best shot in this film is the first one. Not a good sign.

    A great cast to a good movie. Although it wasn't an oscar winning movie it is a fun summer teen flic to watch. Sarah Michelle gellar gave an incredible performance, I consider it to be one of my favourite movies Expand

    A good horror movie and very original in its time.

    Creating the kind of horror movie genre satire that the Scream movies did so well, "Summer" does it so much weaker and with less fun. The movie is very blasé, and I found myself bored while watching it. Jennifer Love Hewitt does nothing to the character, and all the other performances are banal as well. Expand

    The movie is beyond weak, the actors add nothing and the scares are corny instead of scary.

    An illogical horror movie that is supposed to be terrifying but it is totally lame and hokey.
