Editorial Reviews

When New England college student Natalie finds herself at the center of a series of sadistic murders seemingly inspired by urban legends, she resolves to find the truth about Pendleton's own legend, a twenty-five-year-old story of a student massacre at the hands of an Abnormal Psych professor. As the fraternities prepare to celebrate the macabre anniversary, Natalie discovers that she is the focus of the crazed killer's intentions in the ultimate urban legend-- the story of her own horrific murder.

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.

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.

I am a hardcore slasher movie fan. I remember when Scream redefined the genre in 1996 many other slashers started appearing. The first I Know What You Did Last Summer was good and Urban Legend followed in 1998. I used to watch these three a lot as a kid. It had a great plot teenagers being killed off due to Urban Legends. The ending was great too. As far as the cast goes. Alicia Witt was horribly miscast as the female lead. Witt is a good actress but doesn't quite fit here. Rebecca Gayheart gave the best performance in the movie in my opinion. I think she stepped it up. Jared Leto did good here. I liked him in Switchback. His acting was not phenomenal but certainly helped the movie. Loretta Devine gave this movie a boost playing a likable supporting character that you care about. Tara Reid wasn't good. Michael Rosenbaum is a very good actor but here it felt like he was directed to clone Matthew Lilard's character from Scream.
Appearances by horror icons Robert Englund, Brad Douriff and Danielle Harris are a treat for die hard horror movie fans. Englund has the largest part of the three. Watching this movie again I wish they have had given Danielle Harris the lead I am glad she has appeared in many recent horror movies after taking a vacation. Like Scream you spend time trying to guess the killer. That is part of what makes the slashers fun. Urban Legend is a fun horror movie with good acting and very nostalgic of those who grew up in the 90s. Urban Legend is certainly better than some of the slashers that come out today like Mr. Hush and Smiley. So give it a try! Have a great day!
