Movie Info

The team behind the Scream trilogy, director Wes Craven and screenwriter Kevin Williamson, present another entry in the teen-horror genre with Cursed. Starring Christina Ricci and Jesse Eisenberg, the film tells the story of two siblings who have to battle a werewolf that has been wreaking havoc on their neighbors, just as they learn that they might be marked with "the sign of the beast," and may become werewolves themselves. Along with Shannon Elizabeth and Judy Greer, Cursed also co-stars Dawson Creek alumnus Joshua Jackson, as well as R&B star Mya. -- (C) Rovi

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.

Toronto Star
Top Critic

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

Audience Reviews for Cursed

[img][/img] Bringing nothing new to the werewolf film that hasn't been done before, i'm surprised at how much I enjoyed it. I really loved seeing Christina Ricci and Jesse Eisenberg together. They are a terrific acting pair and they are among the most positive aspects of the film. There's also a lot of good jokes and a few scary moments. Although not a classic werewolf film like Lon Chaney Jr's The Wolf Man that helped inspire it, Cursed is the best cheesy movie i've ever seen.

Not the most exciting horror movie. Pretty dull in the first half, seriously considered switching it off, but decided to stick with it. Can't honestly say I am glad that I did, but it did pick up. The cast is decent, especially Christina Ricci and Judy Greer, (she was actually pretty funny when she got going). I think this was meant to be funny more than scary, though quite honestly, it falls flat in both directions.
