    Maybe there will be an oversaturation of ''Scream''-inspired horror films someday soon, but this one feels fresh.
  2. It's no worse than any number of other cookie-cutter slasher flicks geared for the slightly post-pubescent market.

    Before long, however, the suspense becomes repetitious and predictable. In its denouement, the film breaks faith with its audience, violating credibility in an attempt to deliver a surprise villain.

    The film is competently made, and the attractive cast emotes and screams energetically.
  5. 42
    Proficiently filmed and utterly uninspired.
  6. 30
    Spottily directed and lacking the dubious merits of even the Friday the 13th franchise, this is one slasher film that should die a quick and lonely box-office death.
  7. 20
    Urban Legend has an undeniably clever premise, which plays on a sort of cultural mythology shared by the filmmakers and the ostensibly media-savvy audience, but it fails to do anything interesting with it.

    Esta pelicula me gusto, tuvo suspenso."Urban Legend" es la tipica pelicula de terror de adolescentes en la que siempre aparece la chica desesperada en la que nadie cree en ella, pero lejos de eso termina siendo buena la pelicula. Expand

    Kids at University start getting bumped off, killings are like "Urban Legends", kids investigate, it would have worked if it hadn't been for you meddling kids.
    Live action Scooby Doo episode but the cartoon had better story lines. Usual cliched teen horror that came out after Scream in the late 90s that doesn't offer anything new or original.
    Saying that, I did get the killer wrong.
