    Marks a return to a not-so-distant time when horror movies weren't soul-rotting atrocities but just enjoyably bad.

    Poor special effects, a silly looking werewolf and clunky comic writing help to spoil what should have been a fun B-movie.
  3. More an uninspired letdown than a flabbergasting turkey... One reason for this lack of bite lies in the werewolves themselves. They're a bit too teddy-bearish, even oddly cuddly, and the fright scenes work better when you don't see much of them.
  4. It's not bad enough to make you curse, but you are likely to laugh when you should scream, and to roll your eyes when you are meant to laugh.
  5. 30
    The scariest thing in the movie is a cameo by Scott Baio.
  6. It's hard to tell who is more Cursed - the pretty young people who turn into werewolves on screen or the people who buy tickets for this slow, witless, predictable horror flick.
  7. 20
    Genre fans and newcomers alike should skip this monstrosity and go rent "Ginger Snaps" instead.

    I thought this movie was a awesome horror and comedy film. Jesse Eisenberg and Christina Ricci were great.

    I enjoyed this movie and the cast. Wes Craven is a talented director and this movie is worth seeing.

    This movie deserves three stars for at least somewhat making sense (yes, there is a plot in this one), and for Milo Ventimiglia being there, totally awesome & gay - that always deserves an extra star in my book!

    I watched this movie purely because of Milo. And of course, I'm interested in supernatural, but I don't like horror flicks. From the few little previews I had seen, I knew this movie wasn't going to look very realistic, though. The werewolves made me smirk, and oh, no one told me this movie is pretty comedic at places! Werewolf flipping a bird; now that's not something you see every day.

    Comedy aside, there is a plot in here, which thickens by the end. Of course some of the plot twists are predictable, and some just plain silly. Like werewolves popping up randomly for no apparent reason, other than a rather hollow plot point...

    The acting isn't brilliant, but not bad either. I did love Milo's role as Bo, though.

    As a horror movie, there are the usual elements of surprise. The gore is hinted at but not shown.

    All in all, a decent movie, but nothing better than that.

    Although not without its moments, Cursed is a disappointing horror comedy of appalingly weak performances, repulsively cheesy VFX and a wildly predictable script. Expand
