‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ Gets New Exclusive Blu-ray Steelbook

Next year, Walmart will be offering an exclusive release of the SteelBook Blu-ray edition of I Know What You Did Last Summer.

The Blu-ray steelbook is a killer addition to any horror hound’s collection. With an eye-catching Scream-like poster layout, it features the fab four actors – Jennifer Love Hewitt, Ryan Phillippe, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Freddie Prinze Jr. – lined up and surrounded by fireworks.

The steelbook’s cool blue tint pays homage to the film’s original poster. The slipcover reveals the cast’s full body portraits, while the rain-soaked Fisherman Killer makes a chilling appearance inside and on the back.

While I Know What You Did Last Summer received a 4K release last year to celebrate its 25th anniversary, its sequel followed suit earlier this year. However, what truly sets this steelbook apart and makes it a must-have for any collector is the inclusion of a stunning slipcover. The inclusion of slipcovers has become increasingly common among studios like Lionsgate and Paramount, adding a touch of elegance to their releases.

The ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ Steelbook Follows Outlets Like Best Buy Leaving Physical Media Behind

Blu-ray collectors were saddened by the news that Best Buy plans to cease physical media sales by 2024. However, Walmart has seized the opportunity to release several exclusive editions of beloved films. In the horror genre alone, recent months have seen the release of stunning steelbooks for Terrifier 2, Saw, and Rob Zombie’s Halloween films, all available exclusively at Walmart. Moreover, Walmart has even begun selling Best Buy’s overstock, solidifying its position as the ultimate destination for physical media enthusiasts.

I Know What You Did Last Summer was directed by Jim Gillespie. It boasts a screenplay by Scream‘s Kevin Williamson. The cast features Jennifer Love Hewitt from Party of Five, Sarah Michelle Gellar from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Freddie Prinze Jr. from She’s All That, and Johhny Galecki from Christmas Vacation.

The film’s premise has a classic… hook. Four friends experience a tragic hit-and-run incident after their high school graduation. Their car collides with a pedestrian on a desolate road, leading to a terrible secret. In a panic, they dispose of the body and make a pact to keep it hidden. However, a year later, they start receiving haunting letters with the message: “I Know What You Did Last Summer.”

The 1997 film gave rise to two sequels. Love Hewitt reprised her role in I Still Know What You Did Last Summer. According to reports, the original cast is set to make a comeback in a new film produced by Sony Pictures.

The I Know What You Did Last Summer SteelBook is now available for pre-order exclusively at Walmart. It drops in stores on February 26, 2024.
