Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

"Someone's taking all of these stories, and making them reality."

After the vitality boost given by the success of Scream, Slasher Movies returned to mainstream media and followers were sure to follow. The Urban Legend series was one of those followers, along with I Know What You Did Last Summer and Valentine.

The movies share a similar premise; someone is killing young adults, taking cues from well-known Urban Legends. In first two films (1998's Urban Legend and 2000's Urban Legends: Final Cut), murders were done by traditional masked killers. In the third one (the 2005 Direct to DVD release Urban Legends: Bloody Mary), murders were committed by an actual urban legend character.


These examples happened to someone who knows someone you know:

 (Reese told him that Damon is missing)

Dean Adams: Missing? He's not missing! It's the weekend. He's most likely shacked up in some motel with a girl. Or a guy... farm animal... whatever! Weren't you ever eighteen?

Reese Wilson: Not that kind of eighteen.
