Critic's Review Heading
Poor
What hath Kevin Williamson wrought? While the horror movie revival spurred on by his Scream has yielded a few decent entries in the genre--I Know What You Did Last Summer, Halloween: H20, and Scream 2--it must be noted that Williamson himself had a hand in the writing of those films. Those Williamson-less post-Scream efforts, among them Wishmaster and the recent Disturbing Behavior, have been frightening all right--frighteningly, insultingly bad. Add to that list Urban Legend, which takes a promising premise and runs it through a predictable meat grinder of idiocy.

OPINION GRAPH


D ETAILED S TORYLINE

Urban legends, modern day folktales that seem to arise spontaneously and spread by word-of-month, range from the silly (metal tooth fillings receiving radio signals) to the sinister (alligators in the sewers of Manhattan). Students at New England's Pendleton College have an urban legend of their own, thirty years ago, an abnormal psych professor allegedly killed six students and then himself in Stanley Hall. These days, the gory incident is acknowledged each year with an urban legends costume bash.

When a series of strange death occurs on campus, beautiful and assertive student Natalie (Witt) suspects that they are murders based on urban legends. Her classmates, loyal Brenda (Gayheart), ambitious journalism major Paul (Leto), and school practical joker Damon (Jackson), insist the deaths are just coincidences. When Natalie gets too closer to discovering how the deaths are connected, she realizes she's the killer's next victim.
