I Saw It, So You Don't Have To: 'I Know Who Killed Me'
Don’t ever let anyone say I don’t care about you, PopWatch readers. Last night, I threw myself in front of a cinematic bullet for the sole purpose of making sure you’ll be fully informed as you stand around the water cooler and laugh with your friends about Lindsay Lohan’s deeply unpleasant new movie, I Know Who Killed Me. Sure, you’ve seen the trailer, and the spoofs of the trailer, but trust me, they can’t even begin to prepare you for this movie’s astronomical levels of jankitude.
Be warned: I am about to spoiler the bejeezus out of this dog, because you should not under any circumstance — not even in an ironic, ha-ha kind of way — see this revolting, amateurish movie. Not in theaters. Not on DVD. Not even on a 15-hour flight when you’ve finished a trifecta of InTouch, Us, and Star, and you don’t have anything better to do than close your eyes and feel enraged by that hyperactive toddler who keeps kicking the back of your seat. Seriously. I Know Who Killed Me is 105 minutes of your life you will never get back. It has five long scenes of featuring Lohan bound, gagged, and squealing in pain/terror, and three extended scenes of Lohan performing a lethargic striptease. Plus, I swear, 90 percent of the film’s props are a shade of blue: the roses Lindsay gets from her boyfriend, the gag the killer uses to suppress her screams, her shower scrunchie, her hospital sheets, her bedroom walls, her sweatpants, her MP3 player, the wrapper for the condom she uses with her boyfriend — all freakin’ blue.
