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?

Not bad really...no masterpiece though either!
24 August 2005 | by willywantsSee all my reviews

A prom night dare goes wrong and a girl is killed circa 1969. In the present day, the children of the teens involved with the death are stalked and killed by the girl's ghostly, vengeful spirit. This is the third entry in the dumb "Urban Legends" series, and even though it's flawed and predictable, it's a watchable film, not to mention the best of the three. The film is directed by Mary Lambert, a genre veteran who was also responsible for the weak "Pet Cemetery" and it's even weaker sequel. Though her films generally aren't especially good, it's nice to see there are female filmmakers out there, nevertheless ones interested in making horror films. Indeed the technical aspects of her direction are good—despite the low-budget the camera work and cinematography are both well-done and give the film a professional look. Unfortunately, the script, which comes from Michael Dougherty and Dan Harris, who also penned 2003's X-Men 2, is predictable; I was practically yelling out actions before they happened on-screen. The actors are a mixed bunch, I really enjoyed Tina Lifford's performance but some of the teen actors were annoyingly ditzy (though I suppose that was intended…). Then of course there's the gore. There's a pretty good amount on display here, including a truly nasty throat-slitting scene, as well as some cheesy moments, most notably a poor girl ripping her own face off. The villain herself, Bloody Mary, is a tedious horror film villain, that is, another "scary little ghostly girl" that we see so much in mainstream horror today. The special effects were alright, though like I said before they often fall into cheesy land.

This is an okay way to kill ninety or so minutes, it's no better or worse than most direct-to-video fodder horror freaks like myself enjoy (yes, I can admit I lead a sad existence…).

5.5/10.
