More Info:
  • Hazel-Dawn Dumpert

    There's no doubting that Williamson is a man who knows and loves his genre, and all the scary, screaming, sniggering fun continues here.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Derek Elley

    A polished genre piece with superior fright elements.

    Variety Full Review
  • Richard Harrington

    Another Kevin Williamson triumph, a smart, sharply drawn genre film with a moral center and a solid cast of young actors to hold it.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Despite an inordinately complicated third-act resolution, it's head-and-shoulders above most so-called suspense films.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    The story has more holes than the bodies do, but the shocks are efficient, and Party of Five's Jennifer Love Hewitt knows how to scream with soul.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Darren Bignell

    Proves that nouveau horror is alive and kicking hard.

    Empire Full Review
  • Joe Garden

    The characters are never really more than stereotypes (the brain, the beauty, the dreamer, the jock), but as the body count begins to mount, you feel their terror build.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • David Sterritt

    The screenplay by Kevin Williamson ("Scream") keeps the lighting low and the tension high, though a bit more wit would have helped.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Competent but uninspired thriller.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    It has an interesting subtext. I'm referring to the way the lives and friendships of these four individuals crumble in the wake of their accident.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Lawrence Van Gelder

    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.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • B.J. Sigesmund

    The main problem is the script, which has a few scares but little smarts.

    Newsweek Full Review
  • Maitland McDonagh

    The youngsters all turn in game performances, but the standout is Anne Heche, whose weird Missy Egan is pure Mimsy Farmer at maximum twitch.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Lisa Alspector

    Writer Kevin Williamson, who's also responsible for the overrated "Scream," sets cleverness above emotional impact in a poorly conceived 1997 thriller with plenty of empty references.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

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

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Jami Bernard

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