I SAW WHAT YOU DID REVIEWED
“I Saw What You Did” has only been remade once as a 1988 TV movie. The fact that such an insanely easy horror movie premise hasn’t been mined to death impresses me. But, I believe that’s due to the film slipping through the cracks as later Castle. William Castle had quite the streak of quality horror tales while partnering with Joan Crawford. Both talents were entering the twilight of their careers, but there’s something about older people teaming up to make horror films. It just works.
The film builds off a group of teen girls crank calling people and telling them “I Saw What You Did” and hanging up. Unfortunately, one of their victims turns out to have just murdered someone. Now, a seemingly quiet neighbor turns on the girls and begins his path to keeping them quiet forever. One can find echoes of Carpenter, Landis and even Argento in the film’s structure. I know that Mill Creek has been releasing a ton of the Castle films, but I’d give anything for Scream to slam out a collection of untouched Castle films. This release is a gem in an unexpected boon period for horror on home video.
