Theatrical report

Friday the 13th, part 15.

No, it wasn't that bad, but there's nothing to distinguish Urban legend from any other horror gore flick except... um... well, ok, it's a generic piece of filmmaking, but it is scary and entertaining and funny (although I am not sure it was supposed to be the latter). The plot is ok, twisting and turning and full of intrigue and red herrings. The characters are pretty two-dimensional, but most of the actors are quite pretty (including the girls) so things aren't too bad.

You'll get your money's worth of surprises if you get this film, plus some bonus yucky bits (things that make you go ewww!), but the whole thing works better if you're (a) American and (b) have heard of all these legends. I tick no for both (a) and (b), but that didn't stop me enjoying it, especially as I didn't have to pay for it!
