Film Review: Urban Legends by Sophia Cynthia Cabral

Horror, Mystery
Release date: September 25, 1998
Companies involved: Phoenix pictures, Canal + Droits Audiovisuels
Director: Jamie Blanks
Produced by: Brad Luff as executive producer, Gina Matthews as producer, Michael McDonnell as producer, Mike Medavoy as CEO of Phoenix Pictures, Neal H. Moritz as producer, Brian Leslie Parker as associate producer
Starring Jared Leto, Alicia Wit, Rebecca Gayheart
Plot: There's a campus killer on the loose who's making urban legends, like the one about eating pop rocks and soda at the same time will make your stomach explode and the one about a psycho with an axe stepping into the backseat of your car at the gas station when not looking, into reality.
Review: The acting is decent but I just couldn’t get myself into it fully because of it, it is a shame since it flows smoothly at times and I’d say it does fulfill to an extent the purpose of a horror movie to watch on a boring Saturday/Sunday night. Felt the character development was quite good, one specifically, the story was interesting as we see the transition from nice to pure dark. The best point of it was the fact that evil doesn’t give up easily. All in all, while it is decent movie but doesn’t quite make it on my favorite ones list. -Sophia Cynthia Cabral
