Comments:

Great idea. So so execution. Urban Legend is about a group of college kids who are taking an urban legends class, and then start dying off as a result of these various urban legends. In the right hands, this could have been a classic. But I'll settle for pretty good in this case. This is a typical Scream-type movie, with hip young stars and an unknown murderer offing them one by one. There are the usual red herrings scattered throughout the movie, but in the end the killer has a clear motive for most of the killings. If you are a fan of these teen slasher types, by asll means buy it. But, like me, if they grew a little tiresome by the time Scream 3 hit the big screen, you are better off renting at best.
