I Know Who Killed Me (2007) (part 4 of 8)
There’s a bit where Aubrey is in surgery, but she wakes up in the middle of it. She flips out because the doctors are wearing blue gloves, and Baseball Cap wore the same blue surgical gloves. But actually, Aubrey and her whole biology class wore the same gloves, so maybe she’s just flashing back to dissecting worms. Or maybe Flower Boy is the killer, simply because she wouldn’t put out.
The doctors crank up the anesthesia and knock her out again, and then the surgeon calls for an orthopedic saw, with all of the patience of someone ordering an extra value combo meal at the drive thru. Naturally, this is just killing time until we get to the next part.
Aubrey awakens to see, literally, the most horrific nurse ever to walk the earth staring back at her. If I were her, I would have immediately flashed back to Kathy Bates, and smashed the nurse in the face with a typewriter. Aubrey is disorientated, and the surprised nurse goes to get the doctor.
Aubrey notices that her leg has been cut off below the knee, and her hand is also gone. And this brief shot may be the worst acting of Lindsay Lohan’s career. It’s rather shameful, considering she’s been working with elaborate special effects and trick photography for a while, at least since Parent Trap. But she never worked with prosthetics before, which may explain the awkwardness. It’s also possible she was just following direction here. But how she interacts with the fake, severed arm just calls attention to how fake it is.
