Film / I Know Who Killed Me

Go To

Aubrey Fleming is your average Teen Genius. She plays piano. She gets good grades. She has a boyfriend. Things are going insanely well for her, until one day when she just...vanishes.

She's found a week or so later, missing a hand and a foot. However, the person who winds up in the hospital bed insists that she's not Aubrey Fleming, but rather is an identical stripper named Dakota Moss. Aubrey's family decides to take her in, even after an unexplained cut appears on her arm. However, Dakota's still not convinced that she's really Aubrey, and starts to figure that the unexplained cuts and amputations might have also happened to the real Aubrey Fleming ...


I Know Who Troped Me:

  • Mind Screw: And not in a good way. At one point, Art Bell of all people actually shows up in the middle of the movie to essentially explain what is happening.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Why else have Lindsay Lohan as a stripper?
  • Nested Story Reveal: The original ending revealed that it was all Aubrey's story.
  • Police Are Useless: The police, thinking that Aubrey has been deeply traumatized by being kidnapped and having her limbs sawn off by a maniac. They respond to this by victim shaming her, being extremely aggressive towards her, and treating her as if she is deliberately keeping information from them.
  • Rich Sibling, Poor Sibling: Audrey Fleming was raised by wealthy parents who bought her from her heroin-addicted mother, is a Teen Genius, and a prodigy piano player. Her sister Dakota was left alone after her mother's death and strips in a local club.
  • Separated at Birth: Audrey and Dakota, identical twins who got separated. Neither knew the other existed, while Dakota finds it out only after she starts experiencing what Aubrey does.
  • Switched at Birth: Daniel bought Aubrey from Dakota's drug-addicted mother after the death of his and Susan's baby.
  • Synchronization: Aubrey and Dakota share injuries, to the point where Dakota starts suffocating when Aubrey's face is covered.
  • Title Drop: Like everything else in the movie, it makes no sense at all, given that only one person dies, and she does not narrate the story or anything.
