Learning from the past is something that people truly believe in. So many bad things can be avoided if you paid attention to what someone else’s previous results were. Trying to re enact something that had a negative outcome and expect it to go better is just silly in my opinion, as many of these attempts were pretty much silly to start with. Learning from your mistakes is great, but learning from others mistakes should be critical in everyone’s life.
Samantha Owens and brother David have become outcasts at school, ever since they grew up and no longer fit in with the cool kids. Working for the school paper, Samantha has no problems in voicing her opinions on anything, along with calling out the jock crowd for not being as intelligent as the rest of the students. After her latest article ran, she had become a target for showing a very unflattering picture of the school’s sports stars and they were looking for revenge.
Samantha and her friends were skipping out on the prom with no regrets as an urban legend was told about Mary Banner. Mary was an outcast like the girls are now, but Mary was taken to prom by one of the hottest football players and never heard from again. Without ever finding the body of young Mary, she has gone down in the town’s history as a legend that hopefully no one would ever repeat as the full story had never been figured out. The girls have a laugh about the story that happened thirty five years ago and go to sleep, but when they wind up missing, the urban legend comes back to life.
Finding themselves in the old mill, the girls find out that they have been drugged and taken against their wills by the jocks Samantha had blasted in the school paper. Just being a prank, the footballs players let it go, even when Samantha’s brother David tries to confront them and bring payback. Not believing that anything bad would ever happen to them, the jocks go along with their daily lives, but one by one start ending up dead. Mary Banner’s name is raised in the situation as the parents of everyone that is dying were involved in her disappearance so many years ago. Not knowing how to stop this threat, Samantha and David call upon Mary’s only surviving friend to find out what she really wants and what will make her stop this gruesome killing spree.
Urban Legends: Bloody Mary follows the brother/sister team of Samantha and David Owens as they try to figure out what is happening with the strange killings in the town. When an event that led to Mary Banner’s disappearance thirty five years ago has been copied, it awakened the angry soul and the town is going to pay for what it did. With the first two victims being claimed, everyone was pointing the finger at David Owens as he was trying to get payback for what happened to his sister, but when the killings expand to Samantha’s longtime friend, the town finds out that they are in for something that runs much deeper than just a normal prank. As Samantha and David find out what really happened to Mary Banner, they try to formulate a list of possible targets before they get killed by the sleepless soul, but when nobody will admit that they believe that a ghost can harm them, they become much more vulnerable as Mary exacts her revenge.
A ghost story with a familiar character being called out, Bloody Mary. As I remember growing up, if you have the lights off and are staring into a mirror and call out Bloody Mary’s three times, she will appear behind you. I don’t remember much more than that, all I know is that all of my friends would talk a big game about doing it, until they said her name two times, then chickened out. But what this movie brought to the screen was a story of revenge, if it be from the living or the dead. When an action that should have gotten a group of football players into trouble so many years ago was reenacted with promise of no retaliation, more people ended up getting hurt and killed. Moral of the story…don’t piss off a dead person that is looking for revenge. Stay Scared.
