The New York Times - Unnamed
Maybe there will be an oversaturation of ''Scream''-inspired horror films someday soon, but this one feels fresh.
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
The film is competently made, and the attractive cast emotes and screams energetically.
The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - Liam Lacey
Like Frankenstein's monster before the lightning strikes, it's all recycled cold flesh and bolts, without a twitch of originality.
ReelViews - James Berardinelli
With each death, the film becomes less interesting. By the end, it's just a routine slasher flick with a too-predictable final "twist."
San Francisco Chronicle - Mick LaSalle
A premise so rock-solid, so guaranteed to please, that it almost doesn't matter that the movie is otherwise a routine slasher, and not a particularly scary one.

Urban Legend (1998)

There's a campus killer on the loose who's making urban legends, like the one about eating pop rocks and soda at the same time will make your stomach explode and the one about a psycho with an axe stepping into the backseat of your car at the gas station when not looking, into reality.
