Format: Blu-ray
Urban Legend tells the story of a group of college students at a remote New England university.

Natalie is an academically-gifted student at the Pendleton University. Natalie and her friends are all involved in the Folklore class being taught by Professor Wexler.

Wexler regales his class with urban legends, which include Pendleton's own urban legend about a Psych professor who murdered six students at Stanley Hall 25 years ago.

Natalie is the first one to suspect there's a killer on campus, especially after she has ties to all of the victims. First, it's her high school friend, a guy she's in the woods with at night, her roommate...

No one, including her friends, Wexler, Dean Adams and security guard, of course, believes her until it's too late and everyone begins to die according to famous urban legends.

Natalie believes it's all tied to a dark and horrible secret from her past....

After the success of Scream and IKWYDLS, it was inevitable that these films would carry on until they dripped the last bit of profit they could from the genre.

This movie was when the genre was beginning to falter just a little, but the film is still breezy, and has a fantastic story to it. It's just a shame that the script wasn't polished up a little, as the ending should have been sorted out.

The cast are great and nauseatingly beautiful, and the idea of an urban legend killer has to be up there with Ghostface, It's just the killers rant at the end of the film is so poor, it taints the rest of the film.

It's not the performers fault, they are really good, the lines they spout are just too cringe inducing.

With Jared Leto having won a best supporting actor Oscar i thought i would review some of his previous movies.

Basically this movie is played out on urban legends things like a man hiding in the back of your car etc and the killer kills them using these legends.
Its actually rather well acted in parts but not by the lead woman she is rather bad in parts.

the blu ray picture is really clear which surprised me as its from 1999!

The extras just include a making of and a commentary :)

Urban Legend is still a scream after all these years. I have now got the Bluray disc in my collection & it still has its place amongst my horror collection. The Bluray looks fantastic (nice & clean). If you want to watch a good chiller, you won't go far wrong with this gem. Excellent!

This is you typical who done it slasher flick where the cast is being killed off by a killer in as many bloody ways as possible all based on famous urban legends, in the vein of scream and I know what you did last summer, but this does add a few original elements to the pitch!! The cast is pretty good and features Robert England in a small role, this film is pretty classic now and if you have never seen it is worth picking up for a cheap bargain price.

Format: DVD
Urban Legend just does not get the respect it deserves. Far from being a Scream clone, it is one of the most impressive slasher films of recent years in my opinion. The suspense is sustained throughout, the identification of the killer is handled superbly, and the ending is well-nigh perfect. The cast is simply terrific; how many horror films can claim actors and actresses the likes of Alicia Witt, Rebecca Gayheart, Tara Reid, John Neville, and Robert Englund? I would not have minded a little more gore, but there's an acceptable level of blood and suffering here. It all really starts with the impressive storyline, though. A serial killer who constructs his/her kills on urban legends - fantastic. Maybe it's not a wholly original idea, but no film had ever taken the premise to the extreme the way Urban Legend did.
It is so important for a film such as this to start off with a real bang, and Urban Legend wastes no time sinking its claws into the audience. A young girl just manages to make it to a gas station in the middle of nowhere when her tank hits empty, finds herself attacked by the strange, revolting attendant there, and manages to escape - only to have her head chopped off by a stranger in the back seat. Why they bother to do a decapitation scene and not show me the head is a question I have to ask, but certainly the opening scene tells the audience to buckle up for a wild ride. The setting for everything that happens here is Pendleton University, voted the safest school in the country by a prominent news magazine (despite the fact its campus security force consists of one lone woman). As we meet our major players in the film, the topic of urban legends comes up in the wake of the murder we already witnessed.
