URBAN LEGENDS: FINAL CUT (2000) Blu-ray review

Urban Legends: Final Cut (2000) d. John Ottman (USA) (97 min)

At Alpine University, the most prestigious film school in the country, someone is determined to win the Hitchcock Award at any cost - even if it means eliminating the competition. No one is safe and everyone is a suspect. The making of a horror movie takes on a terrifying reality for students at in this lackluster, factory-assembled “follow-up” to 1998’s smash hit (our killer is inexplicably wearing a fencing mask as opposed to the all-purpose parka), with lesser stars, tenuous connections to the urban legend concept, and an uneasy balance between humor and horror.

Directed by Ottman (the only directorial effort from Bryan Singer’s go-to editor/composer), scripted by Paul Harris Boardman and Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose), and starring Jennifer Morrison (Amityville: The Awakening), Matthew Davis (Below), Joseph Lawrence (Rest Stop), Eva Mendes (Ghost Rider), Anthony Anderson (This is the End), Hart Bochner (Die Hard), Jessica Caufiel (Legally Blonde) and Loretta Devine (Urban Legend).
