Synopsis

Behind the gothic stone facade and pretentious air of art history and tradition at New England's Pendelton College--just named the safest university in the country--classic urban legends are being realized with fatal results. But who is doing it? And why? As Pendelton's American folklore instructor, Professor Wexler, cautions, urban legends by definition are said to be contained hidden moral admonitions for their victims. Unfortunately some of us have to learn our lessons the hard way. First, Pendelton student Michelle Mancini loses her head--courtesy of a well-sharpened ax. Then the campus' plantinum-haired practical joker, Damon is left dangling on a date--from a tree, that is. Beautiful and assertive student Natalie suspects a bizarre link between the murders, Soon, one by one, students, faculty--even pets--are dying off in a variety of sadistic and wickedly flamboyant ways... Some unlucky souls at Pendelton College are the chosen few who are bringing legend to life.
