After the success of Scream in the mid-90s, a massive wave of imitators came out that all tried to capitalize on the "teenage slasher" craze in horror movies. The best-known of these was almost definitely I Know What You Did Last Summer, which featured an all-star cast of 90s mainstays, including Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe, Freddie Prinze Jr., and Anne Heche.

While the movie feels kind of dated now, we still love it for reasons we can't explain. However, turns out there's a lot of interesting facts behind the making of it, and we're pretty sure even big fans of the movie might not know these 10 things!

It's actually based on a book from the 70s


It's pretty different; the teens actually hit a small child with their car, who (thankfully) doesn't die.

Lois Duncan has been open about her hate of it, complaining that they turned a suspense thriller into a slasher movie. This especially sat poorly with her since her daughter was murdered in 1989.

'Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory' Star Returns To TV And Everyone Was Freaking Out

Watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory as a kid was basically a requirement. Pretty much everyone had to watch it, otherwise everyone else would think you were crazy. Seeing all those bratty kids roam around the chocolate factory, demanding Wonka explain all of his eccentric genius is one of those things that I think was supposed to make me think Wonka was being mean, but really it just made me hate those kids - even Charlie. I know he was technically the hero of the story, but even he broke off from the group and invaded a space he

'Top Gun' Sequel Gets A Release Date And A Title And We're On The Highway To The Danger Zone

Tom Cruise was easily the definitive star of the 80s and 90s. He had a lot of huge hits, but few were as amazing and iconic as Top Gun. Watching them fly their planes and play beach volleyball was super entertaining, and because it's 2018, of course they are planning to bring it back in some way. Nothing is safe from a reboot, remake or sequel, especially if Tom Cruise has a say. The Mission Impossible franchise is on its sixth movie now, with Cruise happily performing his own stunts and continuing to defy danger, but apparently that's not enough.

The Stratford sisters were iconic for us, and we can all admit that part of the reason was their absolutely epic house. So many moments in that movie took place in that home, and it just felt like the most iconic and idyllic place for this story to unfold. I don't know how many times I thought that it would be comfortable to sit on the porch of my house and

The forgotten actor was on the road to becoming a huge star, with an enormous career ahead of him, but what happened to derail such a successful career?He was first discovered in the early 90s, when he was cast as John Connor in Terminator 2: Judgement Day.
