I Know What You Did Last Summer Review for Episode 1-4 Contains Mild Spoilers
Today, Amazon Prime released 4 episodes of its latest teenage mystery/horror thriller, I Know What You Did Last Summer (2021). A group of teenagers is enjoying their graduation night with loads of alcohol and all kind of drugs. Twin sisters Alison and Lennon (played by Madison Iseman) fight over a guy in the washroom. One of them storms out of the washroom and leaves with her friends in a car.
The night ends with a tragedy as the teenagers hit someone with their car. The person dies on the spot, which scares them all. Instead of reporting the crime, they all hide the dead body in a cave. One year later, one of the twins and the group involved in the cover-up get nasty texts and threats from someone who saw what they did last summer.
There’s a twist in the first episode itself,, and the remaining three episodes build suspense and add thrill at their own pace. There’s blood, gore, violence, butchered heads, lots of nudity and cuss words. Amid all the adult content, we see some story of how terrified these teenagers are. So far, no one is raising fingers at each other as they’re just processing the deaths in their friend circle. But how will they handle it when the person (or the evil spirit?) exposes them for their wrongdoings.
The first four episodes of I Know What You Did Last Summer tell the tale just how you expect them to. It’s a classic narrative in every crime thriller – an eyewitness comes back to torment the murderers. Thus, the basic plot so far is quite average. It’s Madison Iseman performance as Alison and Lennon that intrigues you to know more. She’s charming on the screen, and her characters face the major blows of everything that happened on graduation night. One of the twins’ return to the town is also the reason why the blackmailer started haunting these teenagers after a year.
I Know What You Did Last Summer Review: Final Thoughts
Overall, the first four episodes are not extraordinary, but the screenplay will keep you engrossed. You want to know who it is, who’s going to die next and what’s the blackmailer’s next step. The fourth episode ends with the death of someone who was not involved in any crime. That twist will definitely interest you to watch the fifth episode next week.
The show is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
Episode 5 will be out on October 22.Instagram & Facebook to keep yourself updated with the latest news and reviews.
