Obviously mentioned already by previous reviews, a Scream wanna-be flick with pathetic acting, horrendous plot and character development and just tries to scare the viewers with people surprising each other. Even the death scenes were not that spooky and just felt gory and tasteless. The uneventful twists and turns especially the conclusion was just not that exciting. Soundtrack and the humor were only the good things going for this flick. The female leads were just awful and one wouldn't care what happens to them in the end.

The concept of the deaths being inspired by real urban legends is about all that I could consider to be "good" in this less than mediocre slasher that tried to cash in on the 'Scream' fame.

Scream wanabe. It's about a psycho thriller story. The beginning was scary enough but the ending was bad.

it is true that this movie rides the wave of Scream, The Faculty, Final Destination and similar trendy college/teenage horror movie of the late 90's. I find it very attractive. I love the small role of Brad Douriff (gas station guy) and of course Robert Englund (Freddy Kruger). Developing of the plot is very interesting and captivating, if you ignore some stereotypes. Rebecca Gayheart was really great. I don't know where that woman disappeared. I remember her in a small role in Scream 2.

Tried to jump on the Scream / I Know What You Did Last Summer bandwagon a bit too late in the game. Sure, it's nice to see urban legends brought to life, but other than some cheap scares, there's not much life here.

I thought this was an interesting movie and it was even more fun and scary when watching it in the basement of a house with all your high school friends. Are these urban legends true???? :)
