Urban Legend Details


Australian director [[Performer~P263500~Jamie Blanks~jamieblanks]] helmed this teen horror film set at Pendleton University. Campus legend has it that 25 years earlier Pendleton was the site of a mass murder by a demented abnormal psych instructor who killed six students and then himself. However, no proof of the prof's deed remains. Urban legends are the subject of a course in American folklore taught by Professor Wexler ([[Performer~P89017~Robert Englund~robertenglund]]). When a series of bizarre deaths occur on the campus, assertive student Natalie thinks they are murders based on urban legends, but classmates Brenda ([[Performer~P215390~Rebecca Gayheart~rebeccagayheart]]), ambitious journalism major Paul ([[Performer~P200349~Jared Leto~jaredleto]]), and practical joker Damon ([[Performer~P34834~Joshua Jackson~joshuajackson]]) claim it's just a coincidence. Then Natalie begins to realize that she's the next victim. Since [[Performer~P34834~Joshua Jackson~joshuajackson]] is a co-lead on TV's [[Feature~V160210~Dawson's Creek~dawsonscreek[tvseries]]], an inside joke surfaces when a radio plays a bit of the [[Feature~V160210~Dawson's Creek~dawsonscreek[tvseries]]] theme ([[Performer~P207644~Paula Cole~paulcole]]'s I Don't Want to Wait). ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi
