Did You Know?
Early promotional material, including the theatrical trailer, credit Stephen Gaghan as co-writer of the screenplay. In the final credits, only Trey Callaway is credited.
After Julia explains about what happened two summers ago and that she didn't want to drag anybody else into it. Karla mouths, "It's too late for that now," but all we actually hear is, "It's too late for that…"

Pretty much a run of the mill slasher stalks teen flick.
The first "I Know What You Did…" film had a plot to go with the stalking
and the suspense. The follow-up film has no story, just your standard
slasher stalks and kills teens….as well as anybody else in the film.
However, that said, it still was fun to watch, although maybe a little too
graphic for my taste in a couple of spots. Unlike many of the other posted

catch me off guard although others have commented that they figured it out
The movie supposedly takes place on a Bahamian island. Having visited the
Bahamas many, many times, the first view of the so-called Bahamas in the
movie was a little bit of a shock since these previously perfectly flat
islands had now grown mountains and hills along with rock formations jutting
out of the ocean. And then when I saw the "Bahamian" resort I was further
shocked to see that Mexican architecture had been exported to the Bahamas.
It seems the film makers should either have gone to the Bahamas or made the
location in the film be Mexico, where it was actually filmed. Of course
Mexico has no remote, lightly populated islands like the Bahamas does so I
guess that wouldn't have suited the story. And the Bahamian government
probably wouldn't let them film there due to the potential bad impact on
Despite these quibbles, the movie held my interest and had enough eye candy
to keep me watching the screen. I would rate this movie about a 7.5 on a
scale of 10.
