This dumb-as-nails sequel proved to be a temporary final nail in the coffin for the short-lived I KNOW franchise, thank goodness. It also happens to be one of the worst slasher films out there – a god-awful, boring, and utterly clichéd and predictable attempt at a genre already dried out before the film went into production. Dull characters, a moronic, lowest-common-denominator script, and a lack of action all round make this a real chore to sit through. The script is littered with unintentional stupidity and even though it's well-shot throughout, director Danny Cannon can make nothing of this vapid, senseless mess. Watch out for the scene where a girl is frying on a locked sun-bed as her friends take forever to smash the lock, not noticing the dial nearby which would turn it off and save her from harm.The characters range from the irritating to the truly obnoxious – who the heck is Brandy and who thought that she had any acting capabilities whatsoever? Jennifer Love Hewitt is especially bland here and gives a worse performance than in the original, where she looked better surrounded by a couple of decent actors. Here, she's the best actress in the film, and it makes her look godawful anyway. The male characters are clichéd and dumb, and non-actor Freddie Prinze Jr. returns to go through the most unlikely scenario ever devised. I love the way his half-dead accident victim manages to fist fight the villain at the end of the film, throwing what little credibility there was right out of the window. The only decent actor in the film is Jeffrey Combs and even he is wasted in what amounts to little more than a cameo appearance.Despite the new setting, there is absolutely nothing new added to the slasher genre that we haven't seen before. The minor characters are bumped off until finally the central foursome find themselves pursued by the killer. There are a couple of boring, pointless plot twists which don't make any difference to anything, and an over-the-top finale. The film only picks up pace in the last half hour which means there is a stultifying hour and ten minutes of random boredom before then. There isn't even any decent gore to speak of, the film being surprisingly bloodless considering the certificate. A totally worthless addition to the genre which is not worth a watch by anybody.

It's a year later. Julie James (Jennifer Love Hewitt) is now haunted by nightmares. She is away from Southport and Ray Bronson (Freddie Prinze, Jr.) attending school. Nice guy Will Benson (Matthew Settle) likes her. Her roommate Karla Wilson (Brandy Norwood)'s boyfriend is Tyrell Martin (Mekhi Phifer). The girls win a radio contest by answering Rio as the capital of Brazil. They win 4 tickets to the Bahamas. Ray declines to go. While driving with Dave, they are attacked by the fisherman-killer Ben Willis. Dave is killed and Ray barely escapes. Karla invites Will to join them on the Caribbean island resort. It turns out that the 4th July weekend is the stormy off-season. The few staff includes bartender Nancy (Jennifer Esposito), Estes (Bill Cobbs) and manager Mr. Brooks (Jeffrey Combs). Titus Telesco (Jack Black) is an irreverent guest. Ben Willis starts killing and a storm approaches.I don't get why they had to go all the way to the Bahamas. It makes Ray's trip very silly and the situation very unreal. While I like Rio as Brazil's capital, everything about that is ridiculous. They could easily go camping on an island near Southport and Ray could ride to the rescue on a fishing boat. The setup is horribly fake which makes the whole movie pretty bad. The reveal is also not surprising. This sequel should not have been that hard to make but all the big decisions on the plot are wrong. All of the problems make this not scary at all because I don't care about most of these characters.

I Still Know What You Did Last Summer is pretty much the archetypal average slasher. It uses every clichéd scare tactic known to man, boasts the usual good looking young cast and has an annoyingly predictable plot. Saying that it does boast a few scares, Jennifer Love Hewitt looks incredible and it has a nice cameo from Jack Black. The deaths are pretty tame and in general it fails to build enough tension. The acting is just passable though Hewitt and Black at least rise above the mediocre. This is far from the worst horror out there and if you're looking for something easy to watch and moderately entertaining then this is OK. For fans of darker and bloodier horror though this is way too tame.

After watching the first movie, I wasn't a fan. Years later I brought the DVD out of my attic because I was thinking I might give it another watch because my opinion would change. After watching it again, it did. I really appreciated it more and really enjoyed it. I looked at comments of this up on here and they didn't look convincing. One of my friends bought me the Blu ray of this for Christmas and I thought 'see what I think, this could be good' Just watched it last night, oh dear, is all I can say.To be honest, it was nice to see Jennifer Love Hewitt again. But I thought she died in the first film? Oh no wait, it was a dream. So I thought 'OK fair enough' The character connections were OK but I felt more for Jennifer Love Hewitt. The acting was OK I suppose but nothing Oscar worthy.The story was very weak and very predictable. The main character's friend wins a competition to the Bahamas so she invites Jennifer Hewitt along with two other friends. So now you immediately know, the killer is at large and is going to follow them there. Now this familiar. Where did I see this before? Oh yeah, Jaws The Revenge. You clearly know the writers have watched that before hand and thought it would work for this. Well trust me, it doesn't. When they enter the island, it happens to be stormy season and they are the only ones left on the entire island. Are you joking? was this idea stolen from The Shining? (which is my all time favorite film in the world).The filming was fine and the cinematography was fine, I'll be honest.Now the twist is the main downfall of this film. You find that the killer has an accomplice. Who is it? its one of the main character's friend's, who just happens to be his son. Wow that also sounds like Scream. The killer then takes off his hat ans speaks for the first time. To be honest, he should of stayed muted because his acting was laughable. This was the time I put my hand on face in disbelief. The end, its all happily ever after, or is it? Yes folks an opening for another sequel.Please do not bother with this movie, its atrocious. But if your looking for a good time with friends and feel like taking the mick out of a film, watch this. I Know What You Did Last Summer fans, if you watched the first one and not this one, please stick to the first one. Don't bother wasting your money, time and effort.
