Urban Legends: Final Cut
Tall tales turn into chilling reality in this sequel to the 1998 horror hit Urban Legend. Amy Mayfield (Jenny Morrison) is a film student at Alpine University who for her thesis project (which will also be her entry to a prestigious competition for young directors) has decided to make a horror film about urban legends that suddenly and disturbingly come true. However, as Amy and her student cast and crew begin filming staged murders for the project, members of her team begin dying for real, and the survivors have to track down the killer before they become the next victims.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This horror-and-suspense vehicle, which dabbles pointlessly in reflexivity, doesn't do much with its pseudosavvy characters."
‑ Lisa Alspector, Chicago Reader
"Impossible to follow."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"A flat and uninspiring slasher flick from the "Scream" age that just misses on every level."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"It's even worse than its predecessor."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
"Apart from one returning minor character and a few cursory references, there is no correlation between the two. Unless you want to count the fact that they're both really, really bad."
‑ John R. McEwen, Film Quips Online
"This horror sequel opens with an out of control passenger plane, then plummets to intellectual ground zero."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"Makes the original Urban Legend look like an Alfred Hitchcock movie by comparison."
‑ Christy Lemire, Associated Press
"Don't waste your time."
‑ Beth Pratt, Common Sense Media
"The young actors all look like blander versions of more famous people."
‑ Joe Mader, Palo Alto Weekly
"Perhaps the most moronic horror film I've seen this year."
‑ Chris Gore, Film Threat
"What ensues is painfully horrific and reprehensible as entertainment."
‑ Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle
"I don't know if you're tired of terrified girls racing through shadowy basements pursued by masked slashers while the soundtrack pulses with variations on the Halloween theme, but I am. Real tired."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"As in the original, the essential effectiveness of urban legends is subverted by the usual slasher movie conventions."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, ESplatter
"The embodiment of all that is wrong with the horror genre today . . . avoid it like raw plutonium"
‑ Brian Mckay, eFilmCritic.com
"This is yet another scary film within a scary film concept (surely someone would have pointed out to director John Ottman that this has actually been done before?)."
‑ Sarah Hall, ViewLondon
