I Still Know What You Did Last Summer
Over the years, Tightwad Terror Tuesday has brought you the original I Know What You Did Last Summer and the third entry in the franchise, I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer. This week, we’re filling in the gaps with the second movie, I Still Know What You Did Last Summer. This 1998 sequel to the original sees the surviving teens from the first movie being followed to a posh island resort by the mysterious and murderous fisherman whom they left for dead years before.
I Still Know What You Did Last Summer is a serviceable sequel. Jennifer Love Hewitt and Freddie Prinze Jr. both return in their respective roles, and the hip nineties cast is rounded out by Brandy, Mekhi Phifer, Jennifer Esposito, Jeffrey Combs, John Hawkes, and, in an uncredited role as a weed dealer, Jack Black. You can find I Still Know What You Did Last Summer here at Crackle.
Slaughter High is about a group of young people that travels back to their high school for a ten-year reunion. Unfortunately for them, the reunion is an elaborate ruse for a student whom they bullied to get his revenge, all while dressed as a freaky jester.
Made in 1986, Slaughter High is a pretty typical example of a golden age slasher, which means that it’s awesome. The lovely Caroline Munro stars as one of the unlucky former students, and the suicide of Simon Scuddamore, the young actor who played the killer, made headlines shortly after the film’s completion. Have a look at Slaughter High right here at Vudu.
The Oregonian is a surreal 2011 movie about a woman who wakes up in a wrecked car with two dead people in front of it. She has no memory, either of the accident or of her life, so she sets off to try to put the pieces of her story together. She quickly learns, however, that some stories are better left unheard.
The Oregonian feels like a fever dream. It’s one of those experimental movies that’s not really hard to follow, but the audience can’t really tell what the hell is going on in it and they feel like they’re just along for the ride. It’s an interesting ride, though. Catch The Oregonian here at Popcornflix.
Static is a 2012 thriller about a couple whose marriage is strained by the death of their child. A frantic young woman shows up on their doorstep late one night with stories of being hunted by masked intruders, but when the couple lets her in, they learn that the strangers are hunting more than just the young woman.
Directed by Todd Levin and starring Milo Ventimiglia, Sarah Shahi, and Sara Paxton, Static is a tense little interpretation of the home invasion movie. It’s no The Strangers, but it’ll do for fans of the subgenre. Check out Static here at Vudu.
Don’t Go to Sleep
And speaking of grieving for lost children, Don’t Go to Sleep is a television movie from 1982 about a family that movies to a new neighborhood to get a fresh start after the death of one of their daughters. Shortly after moving into their new home, however, their other daughter begins to see the dead one’s spirit, who convinces her to do terrible things to the rest of the family.
Don’t Go to Sleep is one of those eighties television horror movies that seems more exploitative than scary, but it’s a lot of fun. The incredible cast includes Dennis Weaver, Valerie Harper, Ruth Gordon, Oliver Robins, Robin Ignico, and, last but not least, Kristen Cumming as the ghost girl. Take a trip into the past and watch Don’t Go to Sleep right here on YouTube.
