5.0 out of 5 stars The call is coming from inside the house Aug. 17 2002
By Monty Moonlight - Published on
Format: DVD
Ha ha! Well, Urban Legend is probably not exactly what most people would be looking for from a film with such a title. I happen to be a nut for "Urban Legends," and if you, like me, would prefer to see a film that is basically a group of people sitting around telling twisted tales about a friend of a friend, full of reenactments of the classic stories we all have heard before, then I recommend you pick up a copy of the film Campfire Tales, and The Big Book of Urban Legends, which is a graphic novel (comic book style) encyclopedia of sorts. But this is not to say that you should discount the film, "Urban Legend," completely. It's actually pretty good for recent teen slasher horror. Not on the level of Scream, but what film is?
Urban Legend is the tale of Natalie Simon (Alicia Witt), a young college student whose friends are slowly being picked off by a serial killer in the style of well known Urban Legends. The film is half slasher horror, half detective story, as Natalie and the school reporter, Paul, try their best to find out who's behind the killings and why. There are plenty of great scenes that actually DO reenact our favorite Urban Legends, like the opening scene that plays out the old "There's someone in the backseat!" story, to the awesome tune of "Total Eclipse of the Heart," (well, it's one of my faves anyway), and the scene where Joshua Jackson takes in the deadly mixture of pop rocks and soda. Toward the end, the film might stretch the climax a tad too long, but it's a lot of fun leading up to that point, and the final scene is a nice touch. Probably the only thing that really hurts this film is that most, if not all of the characters are less than likeable, even if a couple of the girls are pretty cute. And I Know What You Did Last Summer still holds the award for "cutest girls in a slasher film" as far as I'm concerned, but those characters were also unlikeable, and at least Urban Legend is a much better movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars Your typical slasher horror movie, just a different concept Sept. 16 2004
By Meesha - Published on
Format: DVD
I had to look at this poster everyday I was at school, for 2+ years, as it was in my registration/art class for some reason. So I probably know the poster better than I do the film!

I love this movie. It starts off with a girl singing along (badly) to Total Eclipse Of The Heart, which is one of my fave songs ever since it was played at my uncle Malcolm's wedding. And it always makes me feel sad. Basically, you've got another slasher movie, cashing in on the success of I Know What You Did Last Summers and Screams, but bringing in a different concept. And that's always cool when they do that, rather than just churn out another slasher flick.

Plus, it has a fantastic cast. Brad Dourif (who's uncredited for some reason) plays a stuttering gas station attendant, much like his role in One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, which was a good ting on the director's part, as he's instantly recognisable because of that. (He also does the voice of Chucky in the Child's Play movies) Also starring is your usual teen movies actors and actresses: Joshua Jackson (with a very bad dye job, and watch out for the bit where he starts the car, and the Dawson's Creek theme blasts out!), Alicia Witt, Jared Leto, Tara Reid and Rebecca Gayheart. Tara Reid is nothing special in this, although there's plenty of cleavage on show for the men in the audience, she basically plays a dumb blonde. Someone who can't be missed is Freddy Krueger himself, Robert Englund. He plays up his college professor role to the max, playing one of the main suspects in the killings.

However, there are some severe plotholes in this movie, particularly towards the end. Alicia Witt is stabbed very badly, and looks in pain, but as soon as she gets off the bed, she's fine. No one tends to her wound, and the knife could have hit anything. The cop lives. (Enough said, and she manages to turn up for the sequel) The killer only has a motive for a couple of his/her victims, and from then on it just seems like random killings. The killer is shot (twice), gets thrown through a car windshield, and ends up in a river, yet still manages to live?!

If you ignore all these plotholes and there are probably more, then you'll survive the movie, and probably get the second one!

2.0 out of 5 stars 1.75 STARS: A decent "whodunnit" slasher, but the ending is lame. Aug. 27 2007
By HorrorMan - Published on
Format: DVD
"Urban Legend" is similar to the movie "Scream". Both movies are pretty good "whodunnit" slashers that contain classic slasher movie twists. "Urban Legend" is about a group of students at a college where a terrible murder took place about twenty-five years ago. Our brilliant little students start getting killed off one by one by a killer using every slasher cliche imaginable, thus the name "Urban Legend". There are plenty of "red herrings" to go around in this flick to keep the audience guessing, and everything goes fairly well until the unrealistic conclusion where everything is supposedly revealed.

Indeed, like "Scream", the problem with "Urban Legend" is the ridiculous ending when the killer is actually revealed, although I did find "Scream" to be better simply because it was more intricate and had better acting, but that's not saying much. When the killer is revealed and the ending begins to take form, the movie comes off rather ridiculous and lacking in credibility. As with "Scream", the ending of "Urban Legend" brings this movie down quite a few notches, not that it was that good to begin with. Acting, directing and production values are decent for this type of flick. "Urban Legend" does have some entertainment value for its typical slasher format and mystery killer, but it's not a good horror movie. However, if you like modern slashers, it might be worth a rent.

4.0 out of 5 stars A top-shelf thriller! April 10 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: DVD
Since the release of Scream, dozens of filmmakers have attempted to cash in on the teen horror craze, with many failing miserably. Movies like The Glass House and The In Crowd made us cringe, more in pain rather than terror. Urban Legend, however, is the most original and suspenseful film to be released since Wes Craven's masterpiece, Scream, thrilled viewers in 1996.

On the campus of Pendleton University, someone is offing co-eds based on urban legends. We've all heard them, and disregarded them as clever stories to scare us. We all know that mixing pop rocks and soda won't make our stomachs explode. Or will it? Like Scream, this film is where many of it's cast members got their big break into show business. Jared Leto (Fight Club, Panic Room), Tara Reid (American Pie series, Van Wilder), Michael Rosenbaum (Sorority Boys), Joshua Jackson (TVs "Dawson's Creek", The Skulls), and Rebecca Gayheart (Jawbreaker) all show up in this thrill-a-minute shockfest.
Urban Legend is by no means a perfect movie, but by the same token, it's a worthy entry in the teen horror set. You'll be surprised how scared a movie can make you.
Don't waste your time on the inferior sequel, this is where the thrills are at.

2.0 out of 5 stars Silly and "overpredictable" Oct. 22 2000
By Mr Vess - Published on
Format: DVD
Sill, silly movie. Which would be fun if it weren't so predictable. I knew the killer less than FIFTEEN MINUTES after the opening, and this is one of those films where you're supposed to learn who the killer is only in the very end. Even Robert Englund cannot save this movie with others acting so bad. And speaking of bad actors: who is that character killed in the very beginning, the one driving the car in the rain? She has to be the worst "actress" I have ever seen. She can't do ANYTHING, she can't speak, she can't sing, she can't walk, and she most certainly couldn't act even if she took 1000 acting classes. If you think you've seen a bad, wooden actress, take a look at this one... Apart from the quite good, ambient score, there is one good thing about this movie (probably especially for a non-American viewer :) - you learn a good deal about nice urban legends.
