[Horror Queers Podcast] Kidney Heists, Hitchcock Awards and Twins in ‘Urban Legends: Final Cut’

Twiiiiiiiins.

After checking in with the for-sure lesbians in Dario Argento’s Tenebrae and the maybe-lesbians of Jamie Babbit’s The Quiet, we’re heading back 20 years to revisit John Ottman‘s slasher sequel Urban Legends: Final Cut!

The film takes place at Alpine University, where one senior student will be awarded the prestigious Hitchcock Award for best thesis film and be guaranteed a film career in Hollywood (huh????). Amy (Jennifer Morrison, TV’s House and Once Upon a Time), Travis (Legally Blonde‘s Matthew Davis) and Graham (Joey Lawrence, TV’s Melissa & Joey) are student filmmakers who would love to make it big in Hollywood, but the competition is killer — and someone is killing the competition.

Episode 91 – Urban Legends: Final Cut (2000)

“Grab your fencing gear and get ready to submit your student film for the coveted Hitchcock Award, because we’re discussing the 2000 slasher sequel Urban Legends: Final Cut with “Real Queen of Horror” (and co-host of The Bloody Disgusting Podcast) Zena Dixon!

Join us as we dive into this much-maligned film, which was directed by famous composer John Ottman (who manages to integrate tons of horror movie references into the film). We’ve got all areas of the spectrum covered, as Joe hates the film, Zena loves it, and Trace falls somewhere in between.

Of course, we’ll have to cover the bad: Did Ottman take on too much by opting to direct, compose and co-edit the film? Why does this franchise have a knack for bland-o final girls? Why are all the kills so weak? Is Eva Mendes’ lesbian character predatory? And does this film feature the most ridiculous motive ever for a slasher movie villain?

But hey, it’s not all bad. We’ve got a kidney heist (in a sequence written by the first film’s screenwriter Silvio Horta). We’ve got Die Hard‘s Hart Bochner! We’ve got inspired performances from Jessica Cauffiel (Valentine and Legally Blonde) and a returning Loretta Devine (whose security guard Reese was sadly dumbed down between films). Oh, and another connection to The Lizzie McGuire Movie!”

Coming up on Wednesday: It’s a surprise! Tune in to find out…

The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
