    Flaccid and uninteresting, Cry_Wolf's cast looks like the characters of Cruel Intentions going to a Halloween party dressed as the characters from The Craft. The plot seems to scramble from twist to twist whilst never really grabbing our attention, and the polished cast of pretties are all equally as boring. I did try to enjoy Cry_Wolf but just couldn't... There's nothing that makes it worth watching whatsoever.

    This had potential, but it fell short.

    Interesting idea that never takes off due to a poor script. The film had a good premise, unfortunately there's nothing going for the film, and I found myself bored watching this. Acting wise, the actors here are poor and none of them have any screen presence. This is meant to be a Slasher film, and it borrows heavily from the 1980's hit April Fool's Day, which was superior. This film lacks any suspenseful moments to really make it a fun and entertaining film that delivers top-notch scares. Mildly amusing in the long run, Cry Wolf could have been a much better film if the script would have been better. This film doesn't have anything effective in delivering chills and it is a scare free, predictable affair that is a perfect example of a mediocre horror film. This film could have been much better than what kit turned out to be. Unfortunately with sloppy direction, this is an unfocused picture that doesn't offer anything worthwhile for genre fans. As far as I'm concerned, this is a film that is poorly thought out, one that doesn't deliver and one that is pretty forgettable. This is a poorly acted film to boot and the director clearly can't craft a memorable terror experience. Cry Wolf is practically a rehash of previous ideas from other films, and you can clearly see where the cracks in the film lie. Mediocre and it's a shame because the film had a pretty ingenious idea and it's a shame that the filmmakers couldn't craft a more entertaining film in the long run and it ended up being a misfire due to a paper thin plot and poor execution of the material.
