Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
There's a campus killer on the loose who's making urban legends, like the one about eating pop rocks and soda at the same time will make your stomach explode and the one about a psycho with an axe stepping into the backseat of your car at the gas station when not looking, into reality.

Dean Adams: Missing? He's not missing! It's the weekend. He's most likley 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.
Parker: Please, Damon is the biggest practical joker I know. He once convinced a sophomore that he was the middle Hanson brother just so he could get laid.
[to Natalie, Brenda, Paul, and Sasha] Parker: Don't you guys get it? Come on, it's just like that urban legend. Natalie: What are you talking about? Parker: You know the story, A boy and a girl, parked out in the woods, making out... Brenda: [to Natalie] You made out with him?
Damon: Hey, we're going down to Parker's dorm. Hootie's gonna pierce his nose. Natalie: Hootie's a dog, Damon. Damon: That's no reason why he can't be hip.
- If you look behind Natalie and Parker in the auditorium, you will see the writer Silvio Horta acting as a college student.
When Paul and Natalie walk into the hidden room in Wexler's office, a puppet of Freddy Krueger can be seen just before they see the axe. Robert Englund, who plays Wexler, played Freddy Krueger in A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984).
The book sitting on the desk in Professor Wexler's desk in his class is "The Vanishing Hitchhiker," which is one of the seminal texts on urban legends.
Joshua Jackson (Damon Brooks) cranks his car before he takes Natalie to "that" spot in the woods; when it cranks the radio plays Paula Cole's "I Don't Want to Wait" from the TV show "Dawson's Creek" (1998) also starring Jackson.
At the end of the movie, students from an unnamed college recount the movie's events as an urban legend. They joke about the tale's validity, and one says, "And I bet Brenda was the girl from the Noxzema commercials." Actress Rebecca Gayheart, who plays Brenda in the film, did indeed appear in several commercials for Noxzema.
