Four teens get involved in a fatal hit-and-run accident and think they've managed to keep it a secret. Good girl Julie (Hewitt), beauty queen Helen (Gellar), arrogant jock Barry (Philippe), and regular guy Ray (Prinze) make a pact to take the secret to their graves, which may be sooner than they thought. One year later, the quartet receive letters which give the movie its title and set them against each other. After a few youngsters are made into bait on rather large fishing hooks, they band together to stop the bloodthirsty killer. Hint: It's not Mrs. Paul. Another quality slasher throwback written by Kevin Williamson, the man who made you "Scream."

I Know What You Did Last Summer
Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 3.0 4.0

I Know What You Did Last Summer is another one of those movies that is scary but okay for me to watch since I get scared easily. It makes you jump more than it is scary. A group of teens accidentally kill someone and don't want to get in trouble so they keep it a secret and swear not to tell anyone. A year later they all get notes from a mystery person that says, "I know what you did last summer." They all get freaked out, some more than others. The mystery person who wrote the notes shows up at random times and tries to kill each one, and uses a giant fish hook. At one point in the movie, they are on a fishing boat, and the killer is on it, also. There are a lot of gross parts in this movie but I still used to watch it a lot. There are certain "gross things" that I can handle up to a certain point. This one is not that bad.
