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

There's nothing here that's remotely spooky or creepy or compelling. This is simply one of the most inert horror films I've ever seen.

The special effects are chintzy -- some of the time, it looks like the people are being attacked by Garfield.

As a critic, I've often been bored and offended by the movies I've watched, but Cursed may be the first time I can remember being outright insulted by one.

a confusing mess, occasionally funny, but with hardly enough bite to get you howling

The best thing that can be said about Cursed is that it's scarier than Teen Wolf Too.

It wanders for quite a while, seemingly unsure what it's supposed to be doing.... I wanted to snap my fingers to get the movie's attention and say, 'Movie! Over here! Focus!'

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.

Horror audiences should come to realize that Hollywood hates them if this is the best effort they could provide after making the same movie twice.

Sit through the roller coaster plot and enjoy Craven doing what he does best, but don't expect to walk out leery the next time you see a full moon.

It really never deserved to be more than a quickie TV-movie on the WB, where it would've aired around Halloween and then faded into oblivion.

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

Squanders its potential with idiotic chilling flourishes that wouldn't upstage a Halloween mask. Fittingly, this is one withering werewolf saga that certainly bites the dust

If this is the way Craven is headed, we should be mourning the loss of a true talent.

Cursed deserves its ignominy. And not your money.
