“What are you waiting for?!?!”
Most horror fans may not look back on the ’90s as being one of the genre’s best decades (it’s certainly not), but as someone who spent much of his youth in that decade, I have an extreme amount of love in my heart for the whole of ’90s cinema. There’s a certain feel that ’90s movies have; for me, watching them is like traveling back in time to my own youth. So as you might imagine, I have a serious soft spot for ’90s horror.
And one of my favorites is I Know What You Did Last Summer.
Released in the direct wake of Wes Craven’s Scream, a game-changer if there ever was one, I Know What You Did Last Summer is in many ways the quintessential ’90s slasher flick. The cast was of course led by Jennifer Love Hewitt, who played final girl Julie James. Julie battled (and survived) killer fisherman Ben Willis in the film, and heroin and villain are mashed together in the latest addition to artist Matthew Therrien’s “Final Girls & Cinema Survivors” art series.
It’s the 15th piece in the series, which pays homage to some of the most iconic heroes in the horror and film genre, and you can check it out below.
