Review by Susan Granger
1 star out of 4

After its predecessor, "I Know What You Did Last Summer," did screamingly well at the box-office, a sequel was inevitable. Jennifer Love Hewitt and Freddie Prinze Jr. are back but, this time, they're spending a Fourth of July weekend on a remote Bahamian island which seems a perfect locale for the stabbings, shootings, and stranglings that occur in the predictable script by Trey Callaway, directed by Danny Cannon. The premise set up in the original film is that four teenagers are being hunted by a hook-handed fisherman, the victim of a supposedly fatal hit-and-run automobile accident that took place in North Carolina. Two of the original four are back, along with the vengeful Muse Watson, joined now by the pop singer Brandy and her boy-friend, Mekhi Phifer, along with clean-cut Matthew Settle. They have won this trip, courtesy of a radio station contest, and check into a seedy hotel where the desk clerk murmurs, "I see four spoiled city kids who would not know a hurricane if it blew up their ass." Which is somewhat relevant since a hurricane's approaching. Like its predecessor, there are the usual false alarms and bloody butchery as the body-count rises. What made the original somewhat interesting was trying to figure out the identity of the killer, plus the lingering suspicion that one of the perky, paranoid four friends was at fault. Both those elements are missing from this cheesy, teens-in-jeopardy chiller. On the Granger Movie Gauge of 1 to 10, "I Still Know What You Did Last Summer" is a slasher 3. It's just another formulaic fright flick.
