    Cry Wolf is one of those movies that's rated PG-13 not because the producers wanted to get the broadest audience possible, but because no one 17 or older would be sucker enough to fall for it.
  2. This was a better movie back when it was called "Gossip" . . . oh, wait, no -- that one sucked too.

    Despite an ambitious script from Wadlow and Beau Bauman, it's extremely difficult to care, seeing as how these tropes have already been recycled enough to make Greenpeace proud.

    Cry_Wolf has nothing going for it.

    Despite some errors, performances that fall short and a weak direction, Cry Wolf compensates all this, revealing itself a very intelligent film, makes you stay for a few minutes with his chin fallen. Full Review »

    It doesnt really get interesting until the final half hour but it was a pretty good half hour. It was an ok horror film. Solid acting by the cast and it had an interesting twist at the end, I enjoyed it but only the last half hour or so. Full Review »

    After reading many other reviews for this movie, it's apparent that this movie suffers from poor marketing. It is not a horror movie or your generic slasher; it is more a conservative thriller with an intricate and convoluted plot that keeps your mind on edge even more so than the characters themselves. It may have what some consider a seemingly stereotypical ensemble whom utilise current technology as a platform for communication and interaction, but those aspects, along with the expectation of an intense bloody murder-filled horror, are the red herrings of alleged negativity spouted by many reviewers. Focusing on Jon Bon Jovi for any reason other than his character or capabilities as an actor does a further disservice to the underrated quality of the film's presentation. Whilst it may have its technical flaws and a lack of any real suspense, it is a solid movie deserving of merit. Full Review »
