Filmed in late 1999, Urban Legends: Final Cut was released in the United States in September 2000, distributed by Columbia Pictures. Amy Mayfield, a student at a prestigious film school, is unsure about what her thesis film is going to be, but after a conversation with security guard Reese Wilson about her experience with a series of murders that had happened on the campus she had worked in, she is inspired to make a film about a serial killer murdering in the fashion of urban legends.
Meanwhile, fellow student Lisa has a drink with classmate Travis at a bar before her scheduled flight out of town. While leaving the bar, she begins to feel dazed, is attacked and abducted in the coat room, she wakes up in a bathtub discovers that her kidney has been removed. Attacked by her abductor, she is decapitated in the process; the next day, Amy is preparing the shooting of her thesis film but is deserted by the assigned camera man, who accuses Amy of stealing his thesis idea. Shooting begins with Simon; when Sandra, Amy's actress friend who played a victim in a scene, returns to an empty studio after forgetting her keys, she is attacked and slashed to death with a straight razor. Her peers witness her filmed death when the material is smuggled into a sequence of takes of the scene. Amy is disturbed by the footage, is unable to figure out who shot it. Sandra's absence is unnoticed, as she was supposed to leave for an audition in Los Angeles for a bit part on ER the following day. Travis commits suicide in the campus tower spurred by a poor grade received on his thesis film which disqualified him from receiving the university's Hitchcock Award.
At his funeral, the arrogant Graham, the son of a Hollywood director, offers to help Amy with her film. After the funeral, Amy meets Travis's twin brother, who explains to her that he believes his brother was murdered. While Amy is recording audio loops of screams for the film, Simon is beaten to death outside, the audio of his death is inadvertently recorded. While going over the loops, Amy is attacked by the killer, she manages to evade him. Before filming another scene for Amy's film in an empty carnival ride, sophomores Stan and Dirk are attacked and electrocuted while preparing the set. Amy is again confronted by the killer, she informs the police, who attribute the deaths to accidental electrocution. Amy is comforted by Trevor, they begin having sex when Trevor stabs Amy. She realizes that it was only a dream. Amy notices a light inside the bell tower, she finds her friend, Vanessa waiting for her. Vanessa, a lesbian, presents a note she received addressed to her from Amy, in which it states that she has romantic feelings for Vanessa.
Amy explains that she did not write the note, fears that both women have been lured there. They are startled by the killer. Once at the top, Amy is locked in a closet by the killer, where she finds the corpses of Simon and Sandra. Upon breaking free, she finds Vanessa hanging from the bell. Amy runs outside out of the tower passing Reese, notified of the disturbance via the campus security system. Amy runs into the arms of Trevor, he tells her he has found that all the murder victims worked on Travis's thesis film. After watching some of Travis's film, The Gods of Men, they suspect Toby, the only person who worked on the film, still alive, they call in Professor Solomon to an empty film set to present their suspicions. However, Toby reveals that Travis faked Toby's sound credit to help him graduate, admitting that he never went anywhere near Travis's film. Graham happens upon the confrontation. In the confusion, Solomon reveals himself as the killer, attempting to frame Amy and usurp the Hitchcock Award – which includes a large stipend – by presenting Travis's film as his own.
A melee ensues in which Amy holds him at gunpoint. Reese stumbles upon the scene, a standoff occurs. Solomon leaps at Amy, she discharges the gun in his abdomen. At the Hitchcock Awards ceremony, Trevor attends to accept the award on his brother's behalf; as he goes onstage, a sniper appears in the rafters, only to be shot by Reese. The altercation is revealed to be a scene in Amy's new film, Urban Legends, on which Toby and Graham are working on her behalf. Solomon, now wheelchair-bound, is in a mental institution where, after watching Amy's film, a nurse asks him if he enjoyed the movie, he is wheeled out by the nurse – Brenda Bates, from the original film – who tells him that they have a lot in common. The screenplay for Urban Legends: Final Cut was written by Paul Harris Boardman and Scott Derrickson. Ottman sought a "wacky" tone for the film, more tongue-in-cheek than that of its predecessor.

Home to the Chumash and Tongva, Los Angeles was claimed by Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo for Spain in 1542 along with the rest of what would become Alta California.
The city was founded on September 4, 1781, by Spanish governor Felipe de Neve. It became a part of Mexico in 1821 following the Mexican War of Independence. In 1848, at the end of the Mexican–American War, Los Angeles and the rest of California were purchased as part of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, becoming part of the United States. Los Angeles was incorporated as a municipality on April 4, 1850, five months before California achieved statehood; the discovery of oil in the 1890s brought rapid growth to the city. The completion of the Los Angeles Aqueduct in 1913, delivering water from Eastern California assured the city's continued rapid growth; the Los Angeles coastal area was settled by the Chumash tribes. A Gabrieleño settlement in the area was called iyáangẚ, meaning "poison oak place".

By 1900, the population had grown to more than 102,000; the completion of the Los Angeles Aqueduct in 1913, under the supervision of William Mulholland, assured the continued growth of the city.
