When a series of strange deaths occurs on campus, beautiful and assertive student Natalie suspects that they are murders based on urban legends. Her classmates, loyal Brenda, ambitious journalism major Paul, and school practical joker Damon, insist the deaths are just coincidences. When Natalie gets too close to discovering how the deaths are connected, she realizes she's the killer's next victim.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Like Frankenstein's monster before the lightning strikes, it's all recycled cold flesh and bolts, without a twitch of originality."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"It's just a weary sigh over how Scream's juicy archness has already turned into boilerplate."
‑ Ty Burr, Entertainment Weekly
"The makers of Urban Legend stock their film with so many one-dimensional, cookie-cutter stereotypes that its potential for exploiting deep-seated fears gets numbed."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"Watchable...[but] a time-waster, with an insulting ending that unfortunately takes it down a few pegs. [Blu-Ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"Obviamente, 'lógica' é uma palavra que o roteirista Silvio Horta dispensou neste trabalho."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"A low-voltage drive-in movie, made strictly by the book."
‑ Bob Heisler, Los Angeles Times
"Those of us with brain cells, however, will spit out this Scream retread like it was spider-egg-laced bubble gum."
‑ Sean Means, Film.com
"It's surely not the worst slasher film ever made, but it wastes the hint of creativity it promises from the outset."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Plot sense is not the top priority when selling a horror movie to 14-year-olds, so it will do well."
‑ John R. McEwen, Film Quips Online
"Manages somehow to be rather endearing."
‑ Kim Newman, Sight and Sound
"A proud product of the Scream cookie-cutter!"
‑ Betsy Sherman, Boston Globe
"Competently made!"
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"This is just another post-SCREAM fest desperately in need of a gimmick to distinguish [itself]."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, ESplatter
"Reprehensible and laughable."
‑ Jon Alon Walz, Boxoffice Magazine
"A deeply stupid film."
‑ Andrew Howe, Film Written Magazine
