I SAW WHAT YOU DID AND I KNOW WHO YOU ARE! FACTS


This shocker from producer-director William Castle is a delightfully original blend of 1960s teenage bobby-soxer giggles and masculine, murderous mayhem. Andi Garett and Sarah Lane star as two young girls whose evening of prank phone calls goes awry when they say the words of the films title to a homicidal maniac (John Ireland) who has just murdered his wife. With their parents miles away and the girls alone in a big, remote farmhouse, the stage is set for some creepy suspense as the killer comes a-calling. The plot thickens when the girls find themselves sexually attracted to the brooding, mature killer.

This distant ancestor to films such as HALLOWEEN and the whole teen slasher genre is actually pretty mild by todays standards, with a strangely lighthearted music score and GIDGET-style antics leavening much of the tension. Its still pretty nerve-wracking, though, and contains a shockingly bloody shower scene that pays jet black comic homage to PSYCHO. Joan Crawford shows up and lends some scenery-chewing class to the proceedings as the killers love-starved, blackmailing neighbor.

A tidbit from the team at movies.com
Factoid:
In an early trailer for this film, gimmick king Castle promised the audience a gimmick of seat belts for the seats in a section of the theater to help audience members "who might be scared out of their seats." This concept was never followed through with, and the picture came out with no gimmicks attached.
