A 1998 movie in the good old slasher style, using the premise of the psycopathic serial killer basing each of his murders on a traditional American urban legend. Featuring the obligatory genre cast of screaming teens and sceptical adult authority figures, this could have been a reasonable film, especially with the recent resurgence in popularity of the slasher movie.

Unfortunately, it's not done well enough. The suspense never really builds and it lacks the self-referential knowingness of its contemporaries such as the Scream series and I Know What You Did Last Summer. To give it its dues, there are a few genuinely scary moments and some of the Urban Legend murders are nicely done, but at the end of the day you come away with a feeling that so much more could have been done with the idea. Worth watching for the cameo from Robert Englund if you're into this type of film however.
