Owen Hughes’s review:
A very typical 90s slasher film indeed. The plot is a little different, all the murders follow a particular patter which should lead you to guessing the correct killer if you pay attention closely, but it doesn't really have a hell of a lot going for it.
As everyone probably already knows, the 90s was a haven for the reinvented slasher film after Scream made them popular again. Along with I Know What You Did Last Summer, its sequel (and the Scream sequels) and Wes Craven's New Nightmare, Urban Legend is probably one of the most popular of that era. It follows the blueprint very closely of what a slasher should be, but I think it gets away with it. It just came across, to me, as "cheeky".
I wouldn't say it's a great film, not by any stretch of the imagination, but it was entertaining for 90 minutes and is a neat little flick if you want to waste an evening of your life.
