Another post-Scream horror movie/genre spoof. This one finds a campus killer mimicking murderous urban legends, such as the one that has an ax murdering hiding out in the backseat of a car. Cute coed Natalie (Witt), who's taking Professor Wexler's (Englund, yes, the same man who played Freddy Krueger) class on urban legends, notices the parallels between the murder spree and the course outline. She enlists campus journalist Damon (Jackson) and her best friend, Brenda (Gayheart), to track down the killer.
