'Urban Legend' Films Getting Collector's Edition Blu-rays

The slasher rose to prominence in the '80s, only for the horror subgenre to dwindle in the early '90s. In the wake of Scream, a new crop of slashers featuring young casts sprung up, including Urban Legend and its sequel, Urban Legends: Final Cut. Both films are coming to Blu-ray from Scream Factory with comprehensive special features.

When New England college student Natalie (Alicia Witt, TV's The Exorcist) finds herself at the center of a series of sadistic murders seemingly inspired by urban legends, she resolves to find the truth about her school's own legend: a twenty-five-year-old story of a student massacre at the hands of an abnormal Psych professor. As the fraternities prepare to celebrate the macabre anniversary, Natalie discovers that she is the focus of the crazed killer's intentions in the ultimate urban legend – the unfolding story of her own horrific murder.
