About I Know What You Did Last Summer

I Know What You Did Last Summer was an absolute smash hit horror film back in the late 90s. It had Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Freddie Prinze Jr, and Ryan Phillipe. Hell, it even had RnB singer Brandy. So, it was always going to be a hit with the teens of the 90s.

The premise of I Know What You Did Last Summer was a bunch of privileged teens, at the height of having just graduated, run over a fisherman who is on the road and then dump the body. Then, a year later, they start receiving ominous threats of “I Know What You Did Last Summer.” One by one they start being picked off by an unseen fisherman dressed in a rain coat and brandishing a deadly hook.

Amidst all the horror lies an endlessly quotable teen flick which is littered with bad 90s puns and sayings which scream adolescence – and that’s why we love it so much!
