It is the second installment in the I Know What You Did Last Summer franchise. The film takes place one year after the events of its predecessor, and was shot in Mexico and California. It received negative reviews and grossed $84 million on a budget of $24 million. A direct-to-video sequel, I'll Always Know What You Did Last Summer, was released in 2006. Plot One year after the brutal murders of her friends, Helen Shivers and Barry Cox, by the vengeful fisherman Ben Willis (Muse Watson), Julie James (Jennifer Love Hewitt) is attending summer classes in Boston, but suffers from nightmares of the murders. Julie's roommate, Karla Wilson (Brandy), receives a phone call from a local radio station and wins a vacation for four to The Bahamas, despite answering the question incorrectly. Julie invites her boyfriend, Ray Bronson (Freddie Prinze, Jr.), who declines, but later changes his mind. That evening, Ray and his co-worker, Dave (John Hawkes), drive to Boston to surprise Julie, but stop due to a body in the middle of the road. When Ray discovers the body is a mannequin, Ben appears and kills Dave with his hook, then chases Ray in a truck, but Ray escapes and falls down a hill. The next morning, Julie, Karla, Karla's boyfriend, Tyrell Martin (Mekhi Phifer), and their friend, Will Benson (Matthew Settle), depart for the trip. The group arrives at the hotel in Tower Bay and checks in. That evening at the hotel's bar, Julie is singing karaoke when the words "I still know what you did last summer" roll onto the screen. Terrified, she runs back to her room. At the dock, Darick, the dockhand (Benjamin Brown), is tying up the boat. He is attacked by Ben. Olga (Ellerine Harding), the housekeeper, finds bloody sheets while working and is then attacked by Ben. While the others get into the hot tub, Julie is in her room and notices that her toothbrush is missing. She searches her room before finding Darick dead in the closet. She finds her friends and they return to find no sign of Darick's body; Mr. Brooks (Jeffrey Combs), the hotel manager, refuses to believe her story. By the pool, Titus Telesco (Jack Black) is murdered. Ray, who has survived his injuries, heads out to rescue Julie. The next day, the group finds Olga, Titus, and Mr. Brooks murdered and the two-way radio, their only way of contact, destroyed. Isolated, the group goes to the room of Estes (Bill Cobbs), the boat hand porter, and finds that he has been using voodoo against them. Estes appears, explaining he was trying to protect them after realizing that their answer to the radio station's question was incorrect. He tells them that Ben and his wife, Sarah, had two children: a son and a daughter. Ben murdered Sarah when he found out about an affair. Estes goes missing and Will volunteers to find him, while Ray takes a boat to the island. Julie, Karla, and Tyrell return to the hotel and find Nancy (Jennifer Esposito), the bartender, hiding in the kitchen. Ben appears in the kitchen and kills Tyrell. The girls retreat to the attic, where Karla is attacked by Ben. Julie and Nancy rescue Karla and run to the storm cellar, where they find Ben's victims. Will bursts in and takes the girls back to the hotel, stating that he saw Ben on the beach. At the hotel, Will tells them that Estes attacked him and he is bleeding from the stomach. Nancy and Karla leave to find a first aid kit, but find Estes impaled with a harpoon. Ben appears, kills Nancy, and attacks Karla. While Julie tends to Will, he reveals that it is not his blood and asks Julie what her favorite radio station is, revealing that he was the radio host and had killed Estes. Will drags Julie to a graveyard where he reveals that he is Ben's son. Ben appears and attacks Julie before Ray arrives and engages in a fight with Will. When Ben tries to stab Ray, he accidentally stabs Will instead. While Ben is distraught from killing his son, Julie shoots him dead. Back at the hotel, Karla is found alive and they are rescued by the coast guard. Sometime later, Ray and Julie get married and buy a home. Ray is brushing his teeth and the bathroom door is locked while he is occupied. Julie sits down on the bed and looks in the mirror, seeing Ben underneath. She screams as Ben pulls her under the bed which ends the movie, thus leaving the audience questioning if the attack was real or just another of Julie's nightmares.
