Customer Review

on February 28, 2001
The only reason I saw "Urban Legends: Final Cut" was because it was free. I would like to now express to the makers of this "film" that I require compensation. If you would be so kind, please write me a check for 100 minutes. The acting is horrid, the script is bland and midway through takes a turn for the absurd, and the look of the killer is just plain laughable. Why is the villain wearing a fencing mask of all things? Did the costume designers just give up one day? The story involves students being killed off while working on a thesis film concerning urban legends. Note: It has almost absolutely nothing to do with the previous film. Thus, it is not so much a sequel as a film trying to cash in on an already established (and sub par) horror title. The scares are banal stalker fare (i.e. someone pops out of the shadows) that are pathetically predictable and never haunt the viewer after leaving the film. "Urban Legends" also blatantly rips things off from numerous other films. Apart from being another "Scream"-esque potboiler, one gory death scene (which is the only gory scene) seems to borrow from Italian horror masters like Lucio Fulci and Dario Argento. Another killing borrows from the voyeur-murderer film "Peeping Tom." And, during one chase, one gets the more than distinct first person camera shakiness of "The Blair Witch Project." The characters are all one dimensional, even the villain. I didn't care that anyone died nor did I rally behind the very ridiculous looking slasher. To think that several million dollars went into this production that could have been used to fund the betterment of public schools, feed the homeless, or do research that would aid in curing terminal illnesses.
