Shot in Hawaii, “I Know What You Did” adapts Lois Duncan’s Seventies novel (and later 1997 film) for the “Gossip Lady” technology, with a lovely and numerous solid of 20-somethings taking part in youngsters, whose difficult hook-up historical past provides a number of wrinkles to the slow-rolling disaster.

The motion hinges on a deadly automobile accident on commencement evening — these motion pictures do not do a lot for the status of teenybopper drivers — earlier than unusual and grisly indicators begin to emerge suggesting that no one ought to develop into too hooked up to the characters. When somebody mentions going to the cops, one member of the group shoots again, “We must always have gone to the police a 12 months in the past,” however in horror, hindsight is at all times 20/20.

“Jumanji’s” Madison Iseman has essentially the most demanding function by taking part in very totally different twins, joined by an ensemble that consists of Invoice Heck, Brianne Tju, Ezekiel Goodman, Ashley Moore, Sebastian Amoruso, Fiona Rene, Cassie Beck, and Brooke Bloom.

Amazon will kick off the collection with 4 episodes, which is as a lot as critics have seen, with 4 extra to comply with over subsequent weeks.

Like “Gossip Lady,” each teen-driven idea appears destined for a reboot to succeed in new generations, however stretching out an idea this acquainted virtually seems like an countless “Summer season.” In case you’re discriminating in any respect, in different phrases, I do not know for sure however have a fairly good thought of what you will not be watching this fall.
“Day of the Useless,” in the meantime, is described as “an ode” to George A. Romero’s zombie motion pictures of yore, throwing collectively a small group making an attempt to outlive the early phases of the outbreak. Syfy dutifully offered all 10 episodes, however it solely took watching a number of to resolve that the world actually does not want one other zombie present proper now, even with “The Strolling Useless” (slowly) lurching towards its conclusion.

In case you’re nonetheless studying, the motion takes place in a small city, the place one thing seems to have been unleashed on the native mine, and a mixture of teenagers and adults attempt to survive what they’re reluctant to name a “zombie apocalypse.” Numerous soapy subplots increase the ample gore, however let’s face it, with this sort of commodity, no one is sticking round to see if the mayor finds out that her husband’s dishonest on her.

Largely, the premieres of those reveals — and USA/Syfy’s lately launched “Chucky” collection — supply a useful reminder: whether or not it is serial killers or slavering zombies, Hollywood by no means actually will get bored with chewing up and spitting out outdated concepts.

“I Know What You Did Final Summer season” premieres Oct. 15 on Amazon.
