Watch Me: I Know What You Did Last Summer
Slasher movies are my favorite horror movies. Scream will always be the best for me, but I enjoyed I Know What You Did Last Summer when I was younger. I didn’t enjoy the Scream TV series, so I’m skeptical about the new Amazon series adaptation of I Know What You Did Last Summer. I’ve seen the first few episodes, and I’m enjoying the series so far.
Allison (played by Madison Iseman) has always lived in her identical twin sister Lennon’s shadow. Lennon has always been the wild child, her dad’s favorite, with a group of friends that love her. Allison has been more of the loner and forgotten twin.
Allison confronts Lennon after Lennon sleeps with her crush. Allison hops in her car to drive off, but Lennon’s friends all assume she’s Lennon, and Allison doesn’t tell them she’s not. So they drive off, and accidentally hit someone. The person hit ends up being Lennon, so now Allison killed her sister, and assumes her identity.
Allison and Lennon’s friend’s hide Lennon’s body and then a year later end up getting stalked about their killer secret.
Allison confesses the truth to her father Bruce (played by Bill heck) right away. He encourages her to keep the secret that she killed her sister, since Bruce doesn’t want to lose one daughter to death and the other to jail.
Lennon’s friends include Margot (played by Brianne Tju). Margot is a wealthy social media influencer, who secretly was in love with Lennon. Which Allison uncovers when she discovers Lennon’s OnlyFans page and her secret sex tapes.
Dylan (played by Ezekiel Goodman) was Allison’s crush, that Lennon slept with. He was in the car when Allison ran over Lennon, and he’s always felt guilty for sleeping with Lennon and hurting Allison.
Riley (played by Ashley Moore) is also apart of the friend group. Ashley’s mom works for Lennon/Allison’s dad restaurant, so they all grew up together. Riley had a huge crush on Dylan forever, but he always only had eyes for Allison.
Johnny (played by Sebastian Amoruso) is also apart of the clique in the car when Lennon is killed. He was a closeted gay jock in high school who has since come out and started dating his former coach. Margot was in love with Jonny, and resented him for being gay, even though it seems like she’s gay herself. Johnny is also the first victim of the killer, which I don’t like since why kill the gays first?!?
Lyla (played by Fiona Rene) is the local cop who is trying to solve these murders. She’s also hooking up with Lennon/Alison’s dad bruce.
The series isn’t perfect, but it’s keeping me entertained. The whole idenitcal twins and one kills the other and then takes over the other’s identity is already very convoluted, but I’m excited to see who the killer is.
