    Finally a fun,clever thriller for teens and adults, that scares you plenty without gratuitous gore.

    What at first seems like a typical, teenage slasher film with nothing going for it, actually molds into a psychological wonder that makes you want to watch the entire film again, just to figure out how they did it.

    I like this movie. It's my second favorite movie. I don't know why; I'm an intelligent guy but i just find this movie charming. While it misleads its viewers to appear like a slasher movie when really its a movie with an unexpected and unbelievable plot twist. i think its the solid script and lovable cast which i like about this very flawed movie.

    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 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. Expand

    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.

    Cry_Wolf has nothing going for it.

    But clichéd rapid-fire editing and cheap-looking digital-image manipulation drain away every ounce of atmosphere, and overexplanation blows what could have been a darkly ambiguous ending.
  3. A clever teen thriller with intricate plotting, deft characterizations, sharp ensemble performances and a darkly ironic twist at the end.
