I Still Know What You Did Last Summer

MPAA Rating: R

Entertainment: +2 1/2

Content: -3

Two summers ago, Julie James (Jennifer Love Hewitt) and some friends struck a man with their car and hid his body..Last summer, she found out the man wasnt dead when he started killing her friends. The man, Ben Willis (Muse Watson), is back in this sequel and Julie and her boyfriend Ray(Freddie Prince, Jr.) are still on his hit list. After dealing with Ray, Ben traps Julie and some of her friends on a deserted Caribbean Island where they are vacationing. Murder and mayhem ensue as Willis attempts to finish off Julie and her friends. This sequel is well done and will likely find wide appeal among older teenagers and adults who are horror fans.

As might be expected, the film has several scenes of graphic violence. In one scene, Ben, who kills primarily with a hook, stabs a woman and then drags her along behind him on the hook .Other scenes show stabbings extremely close up. In a shower scene, when Julie gets out and puts on a robe, her breasts are visible through the robe. The film portrays underage drinking as normal and acceptable., and a voodoo ceremony supposedly provides protection for some of the characters. Not surprising, the film contain 47 f and s words along with 22 profanities. All this gore and foul language is more than enough to repel discriminating viewers.
