Er, Well, It Did Have Lindsay Lohan: “I Know Who Killed Me” – A Movie Review

I decided to watch I Know Who Killed Me (2007) on DVD because a critic, Jim Ridley, at the Village Voice liked it and opined that moviegoers shouldn’t have overlooked it. 

He’s nearly right.  For over an hour this horror film by Scott Sivertson, starring Lindsay Lohan, is an intriguing bundle of nasty realism, and it does have the damaged Lohan’s magnetism.  It’s unfortunate, then, that this flick which Ridley says was “sold as torture porn” ends up as weak as contemporary torture porn.  The last one-third is rushed and ludicrous, with Sivertson’s flashy, gimmicky style always present.  It could have achieved a gory marriage of Hitchcock and David Lynch, but no.  I know what killed it.

  1. Never heard of this movie before reading your post – maybe it wasn’t released down here in Australia? Googled it and damn, it has a lot of negative press and reviews. Lol. But I watched the trailer and will probably check it out at the video store, could be fun – I like trashy horror movies. When will I ever learn…

  3. I doubt that Lindsay will win the case because there are so many references like this being made in music today. It’s a known fact that she is constantly getting locked up. Furthermore, that is only one line in the song so he is not making money off of her name or likeness. I highly doubt that people will buy his song because it mentions this one sentence.

  4. Hi Dean…I want to share and recommend this post to my friends…I think they are interested to read your blogs…Thanks!

  5. My son and I love a movie marathon and these is a perfect one that I looking for. I hope there still a copies of it.

  6. The well known Hollywood companies can no longer dictate everything thatthe general publicprefer or will get as they would up until recently. Whenever you add to that distribution on the web news reports web-sites, from chat to whole videos. It really is a whole new society. Some of it great, some not.
