I Know Who Killed Me (2007)

How bad is it? Confusing "thriller" with laughably "arty" direction.
Should you see it? No.

This is the second straight Lindsay Lohan film (the "I"s are not good for her) I'm reviewing. In this one she plays a woman who has a leg and parts of an arm amputated by a maniac in an attack and then claims that she's not the good girl they think she is, but a stripper. We get to see her strip, though we don't see her naked and she smokes, drinks and swears a lot. The director tries to insert something neon blue in every scene, which not only is distracting, but makes the killer's identity obvious. The police are of course clueless. This is a film where a cell phone would derail the plot... so was this supposed to be 1988? Julia Ormond and Neil McDonough play her parents and have little to do. Toward the end, the plot gets sillier and sillier with too many twists, all of which are obvious and the final solution of the mystery at the core of the film made no sense to me.

And it was slow.
