It attempts to be taken as a slasher film but it's not a slasher whatsoever, it's a gigantic tease.

Cry Wolf is certainly an impressive calling card for its co-writer/director Jeff Wadlow, even if ultimately it is too derivative to qualify as something to howl about.

Mergulha nas velhas perseguições de sempre, sendo ainda mais prejudicado pelos diálogos pavorosamente ruins.
| Original Score: 2/5

To help suspend disbelief, here's a tip--try watching it through gauze.

A fine attempt, and fine entertainment, but not one for the ages.
| Original Score: 3/5

Unfortunately, the 12A rating means that the film lacks the two most essential ingredients for a teen horror flick: sex and gore.

Aside from leading lady Lindy Booth and a directorial style that screams for a smarter screenplay, there's very little here that'll thrill the horror hounds and/or the gore gourmets.

Nothing about the plot has any real spark, besides the gimmicky set-up.

A tedious throwaway horror film without a logical marble in its head.

If you want something that asks you to think along with it to keep up with the characters and plot, Cry_Wolf's a good place to be.

An orange ski mask just isn't that frightening, sorry.

Rumors of the slasher genre's death have not been greatly exaggerated, if this Chrysler Million Dollar Film Contest winner is any indication.

You know you're in trouble when Jon Bon Jovi is the most impressive actor in the bunch.

Is there anything scarier than a threatening text message? Sure: Werewolves, vampires, killer diseases, and comedies written by and starring Jenny McCarthy come immediately to mind.

This is a movie where the most earthbound person is a journalism prof played by Bon Jovi.

After so many years of memorable horror villains, what's particularly terrifying about some dude with a neon-orange ski mask and a ratty camouflage jacket?
