Storyline

On Homecoming night, Samantha, Gina, and Mindy are having a slumber party at Sam's house due to being black-listed by the sexy football players. Since the dance and game are out of the question, the trio stays up and entertains themselves with Urban Legends..all leading up to BLOODY MARY. With nothing better to do and a whole night to waste, Sam chants "Bloody Mary." Her friends laugh... "Bloody Mary." More laughter. On the third and final "Bloody Mary," the friends are kidnapped by three jocks and return soon thereafter, shaken but well. Sam begins having hallucinations and soon bodies turn up - is it all a high school prank taken to grisly extremes or is it Bloody Mary, who's youth was taken far too early?

I didn't really know what to think of this movie before seeing it after loving the first and hating the second... but I watched it with an open mind and was pleasantly surprised.

It starts off very unsatisfying. The acting is terrible and the situations that some of the characters are put into are completely stupid and you'll find yourself screaming at the TV screen. But as the movie progresses, some of the deaths become quite interesting and one in particular makes your skin crawl. When you look back at some of the stupid situations and deaths, you actually quite enjoy laughing at them and wonder if they were put there for that purpose (but they probably weren't). The main character, Samantha, is very annoying sometimes as is her brother, but towards the end they become somewhat likable and you don't really want them to die as much as you did in the beginning.

The direction in the movie is sometimes really good but other times quite terrible. Some of the camera angles used are... interesting but also very distracting and the atmosphere in areas such as the graveyard and the school basement is all wrong. The soundtrack is too quiet and doesn't provide any scares at all so it doesn't really feel like a horror movie.

Apart from all the negatives, the movie was enjoyable and good to watch with some friends. I'm sure it will inspire other filmmakers to use the bloody Mary legend in their projects and maybe breath new life into the story. 8/10
