Urban Legend: a funny of frightening story or trinket of
information passed from person-to-person as though true, usually purporting to involve someone vaguely known to the story-teller.
The Scream formula is virtually recycled for this slasher
horror, which dissects urban legends rather than horror classics for its plot device.
It features some inventive death scenes, all with a wink
and a nod to urban myths, but there's also some moments which are absolutely ridiculous along with some hugely unconvincing performances, some of which will most than likely make you roll
your eyes back into your head and yawn. A sequel followed (Urban Legends: Final Cut).
