Dr. Wexler (Robert Englund), professor of American Folklore at New England's Pendleton College, states that urban legends exist only to convey hidden moral lessons for all who hear them. But the students at New England's Pendleton College are finding out just how fatal these stories can really be. When a series of murders occurs among Pendleton's faculty and student body, Natalie (Alicia Witt), a young, bright student, begins to notice a bizarre link between the killings. Recognizing that all of the deaths have a resemblance to one urban legend or another, Natalie investigates Pendleton's own 30-year-old legend about a series of murders at the hand of an abnormal psych professor. She then discovers a twisted plan to create the ultimate urban legend and her lifeless body is the centerpiece.
