Urban Legend (1998)

Jamie Blanks directs Jared Leto, Alicia Witt and Rebecca Gayheart in this self-aware slasher where a group of college kids are offed to sync up with gory stories shared in their urban legend seminar.

An unashamed Scream rip-off that looks just as polished but lacks the expert set-pieces and constant wit of its superior influence. Criminally wastes Joshua Jackson, Danielle Harris and Robert Englund in brief, minor roles. Leto and Witt are given gruel quality protagonist to work with (for better or worse) but Rebecca Gayheart at least brings it once her true lunatic colours are unveiled.
