We meet a group of College students studying folklore. Their teacher (Robert Englund) tells them of many urban legends including one exclusive to their school about a psych teacher on campus that killed 6 kids 25 years ago. They start doing their own studying and learn that their friends and people they know start dying. Anyhow as you can well imagine there are many deaths here all in the style of urban legends you've likely already heard. Thing is because everyone knows these urban legends there are really no scares, and the young Hollywood cast gives this the feeling of "Scream" style movies. It's really not bad, and it's certainly easy enough to watch but it's hardly surprising.

Availability:  On DVD & Blu-Ray
