I Know What You Did Last SummerOne of the first slasher pics to emerge in the wake of Scream's popularity was this big-budget adaptation of Louis Duncan's novel about a maniacal fisherman, who enjoys disembowelling young teens with a large fish hook.

A group of teenagers accidentally run over a drunken fisherman on the way home from the School prom. In a panic, they decide to cover up what happened, and dump the dead body in the harbour. Only to suddenly realise he isn't quite dead yet, and they'd just drowned the poor bastard.

One year later and the five teens, among them the delightful Jennifer Love Hewitt and Sarah "Buffy" Michelle Geller, find themselves receiving cryptic letters saying "I Know what you did Last Summer" and being stalked by a rather unfriendly fisherman, with a rather large metal hook.

Death and violence follow, as dead bodies turn up in Miss Hewitt's car boot, then disappear again. Sarah Michelle Geller wakes up to find somebody has shaven off her lovely golden locks and more of their teenage friends turn up as fish bait, as they're hooked and gutted in loving detail.

Has the dead fisherman returned to seek his revenge, or is it someone trying to avenge his death? You'll just have to watch it and find out. Adapted by Kevin Williamson, who also scripted Scream, I really enjoyed this one, if you liked Scream you'll definitely get a kick out of it. However, if you're one of the many who detest trendy horror pics, you might want to give this one a miss.

Overall Marks : 7/10.
