It would be wrong to blame Lindsey Lohan's personal problems for the horrible failure at the box-office of "I KNOW WHO KILLED ME."  The film fails miserably enough on its own.  When daring to give audiences a horrible, Mickey Spillane-like title, the filmmakers should at least throw the audience off by having something under their sleeve to "surprise" the audience, and providing better than they expected. But, even those expecting a fun, dumb sexploitation film, will also be disappointed.  Lohan plays a high-schooler named Aubrey. After being kidnapped, she's eventually found, but only after having been tortured and disfigured. While the filmmakers would like the audience care as to who kidnapper is, the real "mystery" of the film revolves around Aubrey now claiming to be "Dakota Moss," a completely different person. This "Dakota" has detailed memories of her other life, and more strange things begin to take place.  Director Chris Sivertson is a poor man's Brian DePalma, but he doesn't have DePalma's style. More disappointing, even DePalma's worst efforts, "THE BLACK DAHLIA" are better paced than this "thriller."  "I KNOW WHO KILLED ME" moves at a snail's pace, only giving more time for flaw after flaw to glare at the audience. 

Lohan's not horrible here, and the cast is decent. But, the dialogue is embarrassing. But, everything about the film is embarrassing. Even the titillation strip club sequences, featuring Ms. Lohan are boring, and will disappoint any admirers with the lack of nudity.  After seeing how bad every other aspect of this film is, appearing nude would've been less damaging for her image! Critics could've then said, "at least the film had a nude Lindsey Lohan."

SONY has provided a 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 transfer with the correct 2.40:1 aspect ratio.  It's a surprisingly impressive transfer! Colors are rich and vibrant, and in spite of hues being pushed to extremes, there's no problem with over-saturation.  Contrast is excellent, with deep blacks and grays, providing excellent detail in the darkest scenes. There are numerous scenes that pop off the screen with depth.

SONY has given the options for both PCM 5.1 "and" Dolby TrueHD 5.1. Now, if SONY would finally upgrade their firmware for PS3, fans would be able to hear what these mixes are supposed to sound like!  As the downmixing provides, both mixes are aggressive. The sound environment is always alive with either ambient or discrete effects. Bass effects are used effectively, albeit sparingly.  Unfortunately, the music isn't well balanced, and tends to overshadow dialogue in both mixes, during a few sequences, necessitating manual adjustments to the center channel.

SONY has carried over extras from the dvd, including an alternate opening, ending and extended strip scene. There are a few minutes of bloopers and theatrical trailers,(presented in HD!)
