  • Urban legend

    I don't know if there is a thread on this movie....i checked and could not find one,which suprised me b/c in my opinion it was one of the best of the ninties....I wont go into the whole thing just in case everyone has not seen it....Its basically about a girl named Natalie who's freinds are all being killed according to urban legends......fantastic opening,great kills,and a twist at the end that i know i didnt see coming.....i actually thought this movie was better than scream overall.....what do you guys think???...the sequels left a little to. be disired,but the original was boss....

    There are a lot of these, aren't there???

    The only one I've seen is Urban Legend: Bloody Mary, which was terrible.

        I wouldn't say it's better than Scream but I like it a lot. I even picked it in this year's horror draft. It's easily the best post-Scream slasher.

            I'd have to agree with that one.

            Also, I don't know why, but Rebecca Gayheart has always come across me as this big ditsy skank. Don't get me wrong, she does a fine performance, certainly not good enough to praise but she does fine.

            I've actually had good replay value from the original as well, I'd say I have seen it at least 10 times over the last however many (11?) years. On the flip side, I've only seen both Final Cut and Bloody Mary once, I don't remember them being horrible though...

                How many Urban Legends are there now? Around 5? I didn't even find any of them that good, anyways. I hope they are done making them.

                  I finally saw this a few months ago and it's not bad. It's not at all groundbreaking, but it's entertaining, competently made, and has some suspenseful moments. I've seen the first sequel, which was pretty blah but haven't check out the third one yet.


                  Movies recently seen:

                  The Boneyard- 6/10
                  Clash of the Titans '10- 8/10

                    I've not seen it in years, its no classic but its better than alot of the other teen slashers around today.

                        It was okay, because I saw it in 99 when the post Scream slasher hype was still going on, I think that made the experiance better I loved that the gothic roomate was the niece from Halloween 4 and 5 3/5

                          I didn't even know that's who she was! I learned my one random fact for today.

                            Lol I totally agree. I like the movie, but just the revealing of the killer really pissed me off. There's no way in hell that girl could do all that. If you watch the movie from the beginning, and just picture the whole time that it's Rebecca Gayheart in that coat, you'll be laughing your ass off.

                              appreciation

                              As a horror fan, urban legend delivered. Great memories from the movie & that time period in my life. Too bad the sequels left much to be desired.
