Not technically, however, one character does offer his female friend emotional support as she speaks about her trauma, but later reveals that his true intentions were to have sex with her.

After being chased by the killer, one of the side characters gets caught in a trap and is tied to a tree branch by his neck. We see him on the brink of death, trying to get the attention of the girl in the car, though he eventually dies when she drives away.

Near the end, Natalie shoots Brenda, sending her falling out a window. Thinking her dead, Natalie and Paul drive to get help, only for her to appear in the backseat of the car with an axe. While trying to kill them, Paul crashes the car into the side of a bridge, sending Brenda through the windshield into the river below, to her supposed death.

The main character struggles with guilt and trauma after an incident where her and her friend chased a car and accidentally forced it off the road, killing the driver. (SPOILER) Later it's revealed the girlfriend of the driver was driven by the trauma to become a serial killer.

In the aftermath of Tosh's (Danielle Harris) death it is passed off as a tragic suicide as her wrists were slit by the killer during the murder. Possibly indirectly implying Goth's/emos are more prone to suicide.

(SPOILER) The killer reveals she was driven to become a murderer by apparent PTSD after her boyfriend was accidentally killed. She mentions that going to therapy didn't work and that she enjoys being violent instead.

In a flashback scene of Natalie & Michelle they "headlight flash" the vehicle in front. The act of either briefly switching on the headlights of a car, or of momentarily switching between a headlight's high beams and low beams.

The character of Sasha Thomas (Tara Reid) hosts a popular sex column on campus WZAB radio titled "Under the Covers with Sasha". She explicitly discusses fellatio/ingesting semen & sex in several scenes. The character of Tosh has a sex scene near the start (brief nudity) when her roommate, Natalie walks in on her.

Sasha is wearing low-cut lingerie during her chase scene, and there are many shots from the camera that emphasize her cleavage. There are even a few close-ups of her breasts.

(SPOILER ALERT) The ending is not explicitly sad or emotional. Although Rebecca Gayheart is the killer, she is getting revenge on Alicia Witt for causing the death of her fiancé.

The blood/gore is actually rather minimal throughout. With a lot of the killing scenes featuring little to no blood. In one of the goriest scenes a dog is put in the microwave, which then explodes, in reference to the Urban Legend.
