* EvilMakesYouMonstrous: Ben Willis, the Fisherman from ''I Know What You Did Last Summer'', was originally a revenge-driven killer who used a hook as his WeaponOfChoice. By the time of ''I'll Allways Know What You Did Last Summer'' he's apparently become an undead ghost/living memory still driven to kill.

* AdaptationalAttractiveness: Else, Helen's sister, is described as very unattractive throughout the book. In the movie, she's just as pretty as Helen is.
** Elsa was written as plain looking in the script; the director decided that if Helen is gorgeous, Elsa should be too.

to:

* AdaptationExplanationExtrication: A minor example. Elsa in the book is an overweight bitter girl who's jealous of Helen's beauty and easy success - she has to work long hours and still lives at home, while Helen gets a cushy job as a weather girl and is able to afford a nice apartment. In the movie Elsa is just as beautiful, and Helen has a failed attempt at becoming an actress and gets reduced to working in the family department store. So Elsa's jealousy and dislike of Helen isn't really explained.

* TheCastShowoff: Jennifer Love Hewitt singing karaoke in the sequel. In addition to acting, Hewitt was also a pop star, enjoying a fair degree of success in, of all places, [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff Japan]].



* InNameOnly: The book and the first film share only character names and a hit-and-run that sets the plot in motion. Everything else is night-and-day; the Duncan novel is a mystery/drama, the film is a slasher.
** The third film is this to the first two as besides [[spoiler:lacking any of the other characters besides the Fisherman]] it [[GenreShift shifts into]] outright supernatural horror.

* ArtifactTitle: Hilariously, the second and third films still refer to "last summer", even though those events were multiple summers ago.

* ArtifactTitle: Hilariously, the second and third films still refer to "last summer", even though those events were multiple summers ago. A HandWave might be attempted for the second film, arguing that it's title referred to the events of the first film (as the time between the two films was indeed a year), but after that it legitimately makes no sense.
This list shows the last 10 events of 66. Show all.
