Performers, Cast and Crew:
At the prestigious Orson Welles Film School at Alpine University, students are preparing their submissions for the Hitchcock Award, an honor that virtually guarantees the winner a Hollywood career. Amy Mayfield (Jennifer Morrison), daughter of a famous documentary director, decides to make a different kind of film: a thriller in which college students are killed in ways resembling various urban legends. Despite the backstabbing and jealousy of her fellow students, Amy begins to plan and cast her movie, with help from a pair of special effects geeks and a suave European cinematographer. As filming progresses, however, a series of unusual deaths occurs that the police dismiss as accidents. Is the killer a psychotic madman or a student hoping to eliminate the competition' Amy must struggle to learn the truth or else risk becoming another "accident" herself. This sequel to the 1998 horror hit URBAN LEGEND features a different cast (except for the return of security guard Reese) and an all-new take on the notion of urban legends coming true. UBBAN LEGENDS: FINAL CUT was directed by John Ottman, the composer and editor of such films as THE USUAL SUSPECTS, who supplies numerous clever touches and layers to the world of films-within-films.
