    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.

    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.

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