Remember when Scream came out and everyone was all over Kevin Williamson as a screenwriter? He wrote the Scream series, I Know What You Did Last Summer, and The Faculty, starring everyone’s favourite fat man Harry Knowles.
He’s still churning out the same old stuff. Williamson’s newest movie, Sick, is the same trope, so much so I couldn’t finish it.
It has been twenty-six years since I Know What You Did Last Summer came out. Twenty-five since the the sequel I Still Know What You Did Last Summer. There was a direct-to-video threequel in 2006, I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer, but nobody talks about that.
Now it looks like it’s making a comeback in movie form. The original was based on a 1973 novel by Lois Duncan and this new instalment in the franchise will see Freddie Prinze Jr and Jennifer Love-Hewitt reprising their roles as Ray Bronson and Julie James. It is set to be directed by Jennifer Kaytin Robinson, who is known for Do Revenge, which is another movie I couldn’t even finish. According to Deadline:
“The studio also saw it important to not reboot the franchise but do a sort of “passing of the torch” type of sequel where original cast members are brought back while a new generation cast members are added to the ensemble, similar to films like Creed or another 90s horror classic Scream.”
This means that some franchises will just never die, they will keep making them and “passing the torch” to the newer generation, you know, kids that like to watch lip syncing on TikTok. They will never stop making them.
Love-Hewitt was the only good thing to come out of I Know What You Did Last Summer. The bad thing to come out of it was a fresh set of sequels no one wants.
