I KNOW what you did last summer
Episode posted Oct. 17, 2017
Journalist Katherine Spiers joins Chris and Drew for a discussion of the best fish-themed thriller of 1997, when the success of Scream led producers to say "Hey, let's put that other actress from Party of Five in a horror movie." (No, not Lacey Chabert.) And while I Know What You Did Last Summer proved to be a box office success, we're wondering how it compares today. Could it be enjoyed as pretty good Lifetime original-style thriller? Is Anne Heche the best thing in it? And why *did* Johnny Galecki's character need to die, anyway?
@2:32: For the record, The Devil's Advocate was not rendered unsuccessful by virtue of opening the same day as I Know What You Did Last Summer. It ended up making $150 million, we're guessing because viewers love horror mixed with incest.

@10:36: Mayella Ewell is the most pathetic character in the history of American literature
@50:28: Okay, so maybe I Still Know What You Did Last Summer was a terrible sequel, but it at least had a solid teaser consisting of footage shot solely for promotional purposes, which is a rarity in Hollywood
