Bonus track − I Know What You Did Last Summer (2021)
If movies are definitely not your thing, MFC’s got your back. Last October 15th, Amazon presented us with I Know What You Did Last Summer, a teen series based on the 1973 novel of the same name by Lois Duncan. The 8-episode TV show revolves around a group of teenage kids who have a fatal accident on their graduation night. An exact year later, they are stalked by a mysterious killer… If you’ve never even heard about the 1997 original movie, well, now is your chance to get to know what happens, though you will have to wait until after Halloween for that. But, hey, that’s some way to keep the spirit alive longer, don’t you think?
So, MyFamilier, are you up for the challenge? Do you have any other recommendations? Let us know in the comments! And don’t forget to visit our social media for more Halloween related surprises!
