A girl at a film school decides to make a movie about people being killed as per Urban Legends, but her cast and crew then start to die as per Urban Legends, often the same ones she's filming.
Slasher movies have consistently gotten worse ever since Halloween started the genre. Considering that "Halloween" came out over 20 years ago, the genre is pointlessly banal and simply relies on it's cliches like it's praying for one of the Fates not to cut it's strings. With all slasher movies, it's a necessary to cliche to have the killer dress in a scary outfit. But Urban Legends does it laughablly bad. In the first one, the killer wore a big Eskimo coat. What the hell is scary about eskimkos? But in this one, the killer wears a fencing outfit. A Goddammend fencing outfit! That's about the same as wearing a football jersy! Besides, what kind of film school HAS a fencing team for the killer to steal the outfit from in the first place!
With the exception of one, all the Urban Legends in this movie I have never heard of before. That one where they steal the kidney is a real urban legend; real as in the legend as been told, not the actual event happeneing. And these movies confuse, campfire story with Urban Legend. An Urban Legend is meant to scare people into NOT doing something most of the time. "If you don't brush your teeth, the boogeyman will get you," or something like that. A campfire story, like a girl coming home and finding her dog hung in the bathroom, is meant to scare. And besides, most of the "urbanlegends/campfire stories" they use in the movie I never heard before, and I study that stuff! They jsut made it up!
I give this movie a two! Why not a one? Because I liked two of the characters dialogue about George Lucas. For me, ANY movie where someone basically says "Jar Jar Binks sucks," gets an extra star!
