The concept is sound, but it's gruesomely marred in the execution.

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.

It's surely not the worst slasher film ever made, but it wastes the hint of creativity it promises from the outset.

This is just another post-SCREAM fest desperately in need of a gimmick to distinguish [itself].

Watchable...[but] a time-waster, with an insulting ending that unfortunately takes it down a few pegs. [Blu-Ray]

Like Frankenstein's monster before the lightning strikes, it's all recycled cold flesh and bolts, without a twitch of originality.

Plot sense is not the top priority when selling a horror movie to 14-year-olds, so it will do well.

Obviamente, 'lógica' é uma palavra que o roteirista Silvio Horta dispensou neste trabalho.

A low-voltage drive-in movie, made strictly by the book.

As interesting as the urban legend premise is, it's not enough to sustain the movie.

Those of us with brain cells, however, will spit out this Scream retread like it was spider-egg-laced bubble gum.

The gimmicky premise keeps this tension-filled scarefest afloat.

It's just a weary sigh over how Scream's juicy archness has already turned into boilerplate.

Attractively shot, and well-paced, but remains pretty standard fare.
