What are you waiting for huh? WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?????
Bruh, you’re telling me this movie came out 21 years ago as of today? 21 YEARS AGO?! For a movie that came out when I was barely 10 years old, I think about I Know What You Did Last Summer a lot more than I should. I think the hate it gets nowadays is a bit overblown (even if some of the critique is justified, I Know What You Did Last Summer has a lot of good, but also some bad things).
Well, wow. I had no idea the film was based off of a novel. Here’s the real shocker - it's a lot different from the movie, but I think the movie is so much better.
Does anyone else enjoy watching 90s horror movies or is it just me? The Silence of the Lambs, Scream, I Know What You Did Last Summer, The Faculty, The Sixth Sense, Tremors, Halloween H20: 20 Years Later, Bride of Chucky, Interview with the Vampire, From Dusk Till Dawn. We really had some of the cheesiest best movies in the 90s. And I'm not just saying that because I'm a 90s kid.
So she closed her eyes, and when she opened them again the paper was still there in her hand with one short sentence printed on it:
I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER.
The book starts off with our young protagonist being all angsty and emo.
Now this is a story all about how
My life got flipped turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute, just sit right there
I'll tell you how I became the target of a madman.
Or something like that.
Julie, Ray, Barry and Helen did a bad thing. And they've pretty much gotten away with it.
Or did they?
Someone knows what they did last summer. And he's coming for them.
This book's biggest flaw in terms of readability is its complete lack of Ryan Phillippe. Not trying to sound like a total douche but the men in the movie... eye candy.
Also, where's Buffy?
In all seriousness though, the novelization wasn't quite as enthralling as I thought it would be. There is hardly any gore. The characters are likeable, but much of the dialogue falls flat. This story has a different villain. While perhaps not as iconic as Ghostface and Michael Myers, "The Fisherman" was a good, scary antagonist. I usually love villains but this one is....meh.
Stupid lines used in Horror movies/books
"Who is it?"
Stop asking the big stupid questions and get out.
The final confrontation was kind of lame and the ending was played very safe. Which is fine. Not everything has to be a perfect masterpiece.
We can never erase it, she thought. What we did last summer is done. We can’t undo it, ever. But we can face it. That will be something.

Read information about the authorLois Duncan (born Lois Duncan Steinmetz) was an American writer and novelist, known primarily for her books for children and young adults, in particular (and some times controversially considering her young readership) crime thrillers. Duncan's parents were the noted magazine photographers Lois Steinmetz and Joseph Janney Steinmetz. She was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, but grew up in Sarasota, Florida. Duncan started writing and submitting manuscripts to magazines at the age of ten, and when she was thirteen succeeded in selling her first story.
Duncan attended Duke University from 1952 to 1953 but dropped out, married, and started a family. During this time, she continued to write and publish magazine articles; over the course of her career, she has published more than 300 articles, in magazines such as Ladies' Home Journal, Redbook, McCall's, Good Housekeeping, and Reader's Digest. After her first marriage, which produced three children, ended in divorce, Duncan moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico, to teach journalism at the University of New Mexico, where she also earned a BA in English in 1977. In 1965 she married Don Arquette, and had two more children with him.
Duncan was best known for her novels of suspense for teenagers. Some of her works have been adapted for the screen, the most famous example being the 1997 film I Know What You Did Last Summer, adapted from her novel of the same title. Other made-for-TV movies include Stranger with My Face, Killing Mr. Griffin, Don't Look Behind You, Summer of Fear and Gallows Hill.
In 1989 the youngest of Duncan's children, Kaitlyn Arquette, was murdered in Albuquerque, New Mexico, under suspicious circumstances. Who Killed My Daughter? relates the facts and conjecture about the still unsolved case.
Duncan's second book about her daughter's murder, ONE TO THE WOLVES: ON THE TRAIL OF A KILLER, picks up where the first book leaves off and contains all the new information Kait's family has uncovered from private investigation.
The 1971 children's book Hotel for Dogs was released as a theatrical movie in 2009, starring Emma Roberts. That book has now been republished by Scholastic along with two sequels, News for Dogs (2009) and Movie for Dogs (2010).
Duncan's Gothic suspense novel, DOWN A DARK HALL, is being filmed for the Big Screen and will probably be released in 2016.
