What’s it all about? – Slasher type film in a rehab clinic for law enforcement officers with problems.  One of them is a bad guy, but who?

Notes & scribbles

  • Based on the 1999 novel ‘Jitter Joint’ by Howard Swindle
  • When it was finally released in the U.S. it was titled ‘Eye See You’ – what an awful title.
  • Watched this after watching ‘The People vs O.J. Simpson, in which Vance played Johnny Cochrane. Every time he spoke all I heard was Cochrane’s voice

What’s it all about? – Four schoolies kill someone, then a year later it comes back to bite them.

Notes & Scribbles

  • Based on book of the same name by Lois Duncan, apparently she hated the film.
  • Standard teen slasher film.  False accusations, mistrust, folk you think are dead that aren’t, virginity lost.
  • Some cover versions on the soundtrack – Summer Breeze by Type O Negative, Hey Bulldog by Toad The Wet Sprocket, Hush by Kula Shaker.
  • All in all I preferred the Scream films.
  • Two sequels, I Still Know What You Did Last Summer and I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer.
  • Other possible sequels – I Don’t Care What You Did Last Summer, Why Don’t You Do Something In Winter, Is This What You Did In Autumn and What’s The Point Of Doing Something In Spring. (Copyrighting all of these. Gold I tell ya, Gold!)
