Makes you long for the days when teenage werewolves were beady-eyed, slavering versions of hairy-palm jokes.

Poor special effects, a silly looking werewolf and clunky comic writing help to spoil what should have been a fun B-movie.

The scariest thing in the movie is a cameo by Scott Baio.

The special effects are particularly lame, and an insult to the proud werewolf tradition of An American Werewolf in London or the even better The Howling.

The scariest thing about this movie is the incredible waste of once-vital talent.

A third-rate effort, with a weak script, cheap-looking effects and no genuine frights.

How can you not feel affectionate toward a movie that includes a line like, 'I guess there's no such thing as safe sex with a werewolf'?

A hodgepodge of false starts and dead ends, and an assault on an audience's patience (as well as on the continuity editor).

It's not bad enough to make you curse, but you are likely to laugh when you should scream, and to roll your eyes when you are meant to laugh.

The Dawson's Creek sensitivity and unsatisfying effects undermine the lupine anxiety.

The problem lies with Williamson's script, which feels as if it has been torn from different places and glued back together like a ransom note.

Not since primitive stop-motion special effects turned Lon Chaney into the Wolf Man has a movie lycanthrope looked so unconvincing.

Fails to provide either Craven's trademark chills or Williamson's trademark satirical wit.

Cursed isn't a very good movie, but it's more an uninspired letdown than a flabbergasting turkey.

Idiotic movie, even by werewolf standards.
