I prefer the term eccentric, but yeah, I guess you could say I'm a little nutty.

Brenda Bates is the main antagonist of the 1998 film Urban Legend. She is a serial killer that bases her murders off of urban legends.

She was portrayed by Rebecca Gayheart.

Biography

Brenda and her boyfriend, David Evans, were planning to get married after high school graduation. Unable to buy a her a ring, David gave her a necklace. However, that very night, David was killed in a car accident that was caused by two girls pulling a prank on him that was inspired by an urban legend. Both Brenda's heart and her sanity were shattered and she waited for her chance at revenge. She enrolled in the same college as one of the girls, Natalie Simon, and became her best friend. She then murdered Michelle Mancini, the girl who drove the car, by hiding in the back seat of her car and decapitating her with an axe. 

Personality

While pretending to be Natalie, Damon, Parker, Paul and Sasha's friend, Brenda comes off as shy, resistant and genuinely shocked the gruesome murders transpiring. In reality, however, she is scheming, taunting, infuriated and vengeful. She is also very jealous and easily upset over men, as when Natalie is seen in the film sharing a kiss with Paul, whom Brenda expressed to Natalie that she liked.
