Urban Legend tells the story of a group of pretty college students at a remote New England university. The focus of the story is Natalie, a beautiful, academically-gifted student at the fictional 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. No one, including her friends, Wexler, Dean Adams and security guard, of course, believes her until it's too late. Now she finds that she and her friends are part of the killer's ultimate urban legend.Written by

Julian Richings who plays the "Weird Janitor" later had a recurring role as "Death" on "Supernatural" (2005). The first season of which was mostly based on urban legends. See more »
There is not only no way that Natalie's roommate could have written such a lengthy note without collapsing from blood loss, but also no way that anyone would have assumed that 'no foul play' had taken place; additionally, a security guard from the school would not be sufficient to make that sort of pronouncement in any case, and actual police investigators would be involved in the case of any such violent death. Natalie even mentions the message, which would seem to showcase a tremendous oversight in writing. See more »
Urban Legend is a great movie with a good twist at the end. It's different from all the other horror-genre movies around. The only thing that Urban Legend has in common with them is the fact that they are all not scary but still very good. Jamie Blanks is a great director who puts everything right in this movie and the cast especially Jared Leto, Alicia Witt and Rebecca Gayheart are all great. I give this movie a 10/10
