this movie,is in my mind,one of the better of the horror genre.it has a clever premise.the characters are well written and strong.there are a lot of potential suspects that could be the killer,and they all have compelling motives.the movie may not be wholly original,but it think its basic premise is.i also found it unpredictable.i had no idea for sure who the killer might be.and i think the movie is tightly written enough that it doesn't give you any clear idea who the killer is.i'm certain there are inconsistencies and tiny plot holes,and i mean tiny.not even holes really.more like little divetts.unless you're looking for things wrong with the movie,i don't think you'll find them.if a movie has blatant holes and absurd leaps of logic,that's one thing.i don't think this movie does.if you just let it engage you,it will.for me,"Urban Legend" is a 5/5

Director: Jamie Blanks
Cast: Alicia Witt, Jared Leto, Rebecca Gayheart, Joshua Jackson, Tara Reid, Robert Englund.
Running Time: 108 minutes.
Rated R for violence, gore, language, and mild sexual situations.
With the success of "Scream" (1996) and "I Know What You Did Last Summer" (1997), director Jamie Blanks cashes in on this second wave of slasher-hyseria with this slick, innovative angle towards the genre. The opening scene sets the tone for the entire film: a lone traveling college woman stops at a gas station to fill up, only to be harrassed by the sales clerk. Little does she know that the clerk is only struggling to warn her about the murderous maniac wielding an axe is hiding in her back seat.
This, of course, is an urband legend that has been passed down from generation to generation. Alicia Witt stars as a normal student adjusting to college life, only to have her friends being knocked off by a killer in strange fashion--all die similarly to famous urban legends. With the help from the sly journalist Leto, they attempt to track down the killer before it is too late.
Certainly a film that is better than expected, with an intense, smart script and suitable acting. Blanks does a fine job using certain camera angles and shots to portray the killer as mysterious and unknown. Look for Robert Englund, who plays Freddy Krueger in the "Nightmare on Elm Street" films, in a brief cameo as a college professor--he is almost as scary in this flick as his others. Rivals both "Scream" and "I Know What You Did Last Summer" in style and authenticity.

It's all set on some leafy college campus in New Hampshire. Professor William Wexler (Robert Englund) lectures on modern folklore and urban legends. The trouble starts when someone begins bumping off the students in the manner of these same urban legends. Can our heroine Natalie (Alicia Witt) figure out who it is before she becomes another victim? Can her friends help her? Or is one of them the killer? Or is it the weird janitor guy? Or maybe the Dean? Or Wexler himself...?
In fact it's extremely difficult, watching this, to give a toss who it is. It's one of the dullest, most mechanical, most derivative, least frightening horror movies I've seen recently. The plot, first of all, is a straight rip-off from the 'Scream' franchise, a plot line Craven has already done so thoroughly to death the last thing anyone needs is a retread anytime soon. The only twist is the urban legend angle which is also of course pinched from assorted other movies, most notably 'Candyman'. And most of the urban legends the film invokes are again just a set of horror movie clichés swiped from films like 'When a Stranger Calls' and 'Candyman' itself.
There are various tricks a director can use to keep an audience on edge during the bits of a movie when nothing genuinely scary is going on. A favourite one is this. Character X is wandering round alone and gets a terrible fright when they meet someone unexpectedly. Stick a sudden loud discordant chord onto the soundtrack and you give the audience a fright too. But then it turns out only to be Character Y and nothing to be frightened of. Many horror films have been known to use this little tease to make us jump. Jamie Blanks, the director of this film uses it very early on. And then he uses it again. And again. And again.

URBAN LEGEND is definitely a cookie cutter slasher movie, but Jamie Blanks directs with an intense fervor; the cast plays and/or overplays its roles with thespian gusto. The identity of the killer is sly; early on, I suspected this person, but got lost in the other red herrings, so that only when it became obvious who the killer is, did I pat myself on the back and say "I told you so." The use of the urban legends as a stimulus for the killings is unique, and there are some tense scenes. Robert Englund looks a little lost in the rather docile role of the professor who is an expert on "urban legends." Alicia Witt and Rebecca Gayheart, in particular, do nice jobs as the teeny bopper girls screaming and running. Loretta Devine as the campus security cop is very "cool" in the you go girl arena. Joshua Jackson, Michael Rosenbaum and Tara Reid fare less effective, but fortunately do not hinder the movie. The "Halloween" syndrome occurs again in that we never know if the killer is really dead???
I've definitely seen worse thrillers, so this one isn't the dud some critics assert.
