I Know Who Killed My Career

FT4 comments • 911 views

I Know Who Killed MeIts not that I like bad films. There are exuberant bad films, films which entertain on a visceral level. There are films which amuse because they are so bad, and there are films which you cannot really imagine why they were made in the first place. Well in the first place I know the reason that I Know Who Killed Me got made. Lindsay Lohan, teen queen du jour wanted to make a proper adult film. And who can blame her, too much Disney is going to sicken anyone – even if you teen movies such as Mean Girls were excellent. But what does adult mean to LiLo? Well if I Know Who Killed Me is anything to go by adult equals sex, stripping, torture, murder, serial killing, a noiresqure film title, lots of pouting and swearing and an incomprehensible plot.

And so to that plot. Lindsay plays a nice girl student, Aubrey Fleming, noted for her nice boyf and her creative writing. But something is rotten in this University town, a serial killed who mutliates and then kills is on the prowl and one night Aubrey goes missing. Things look bleak for Ms Fleming, indeed we see her hand and her foot getting chopped off – and then a body is discovered. ALIVE! Its LiLo again but she says her name is Dakota Moss, swears like a trouper and is an erotic dancer. Oh, she too has had a foot removed and hand burnt off.
