I Know Who Killed Me was financed by billionaire Tom Gores’ 360 Pictures for a modest $12 million and in March 2006, Gore formed a distribution pact with Sony to distribute their projects, which would be youth targeted and capped at $15 million budgets. With star Lindsay Lohan’s career in free-fall, a DUI/cocaine arrest days before the film’s release didn’t do much to help the bad buzz. I Know Who Killed Me opened with truly hateful reviews and a modest, but still expensive prints and advertising spend, which was a bust when it opened with a terrible $3,506,291 — placing #9 for the weekend won by new opener The Simpsons Movie and this opened just slightly above the flop Who’s Your Caddy?. Audiences awarded I Know Who Killed Me with a rare F cinemascore and predictably the film sank 66.8% to $1,165,378 in its second frame and promptly lost most of its theater count. It closed its run after four weeks with $7,498,716. Sony would see back about $4.1 million after theaters take their percentage of the gross, far less than their ad spend and acquisition costs. Overseas, the film saw a small release which pulled in $2.1 million across multiple distributors and went straight to video in most markets. This would be the last top lining Lindsay Lohan vehicle in wide release. 360 Pictures has only a library of 5 movies and its first picture was Crossover (2006), which seemingly has a permanent home on the IMDB bottom 100, then this piece of garbage, the straight to video Species: The Awakening, straight to video remake of April Fool’s Day and a failed attempt at legitimacy with a Gus Van Sant dud Restless (2011).
