Urban Legends: Final Cut (2000) - Synopsis
Amy (Jennifer Morrison), Travis (Matthew Davis) and Graham (Joey Lawrence ) are student filmmakers who would love to make it big in Hollywood. But first they've got to survive their last semester at Alpine University, a renowned film school where the competition is killer and someone is killing the competition.
At Alpine, one senior student will be awarded the prestigious Hitchcock Award for best thesis film, virtually guaranteeing the winner a film career in Hollywood. Down-to-earth documentary film student Amy Mayfield wants to take a crack at the Hitchcock. During a chance meeting with Reese (Loretta Devine), the new campus security guard, Amy is inspired by the story of an urban legend at Pendleton University, Reese's former place of employment.
Taking a break from documentaries, Amy decides her thesis film will be a fictional, psychological thriller about those contemporary tall tales known as urban legends. After writing the script, storyboarding the shots and casting her actors, Amy and her crew of fellow students prepare to roll camera even though Vanessa (Eva Mendes), Amy's boom operator, is more interested in girls than rolling sound; Simon (Marco Hofschneider), her cameraman, is a womanizing, chain-smoking European; and Stan (Anthony Anderson) and Dirk (Michael Bacall), her two special-effects geeks, live for latex and pray to Lucas (George, that is).
The competition is fierce. Toby (Anson Mount), an aggressive, neurotic student filmmaker, is shooting a horror film that takes place on an airplane. His lead actress, Sandra (Jessica Cauffiel), gives new meaning to the term 'over the top.' Meanwhile, the handsome, artistic Travis (Matthew Davis) is putting the final touches on his film, 'The Gods of Men', and Graham (Joey Lawrence ), the son of a Hollywood mogul, has deals of his own brewing.

When Amy's film crew starts falling prey to fatal 'accidents,' she questions where fiction ends and truth begins. When all the dots start to connect back to her, she realizes she must unmask the killer before she, too, becomes an urban legend.
