A group of students at an exclusive private school decide to have some fun by creating an urban legend and seeing how far it will spread. When a woman is murdered not far from the school's campus, the students create an elaborate mythology about a serial killer known as "the Wolf," whose motives and methods would make him a likely culprit for the recent crime.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Is there anything scarier than a threatening text message? Sure: Werewolves, vampires, killer diseases, and comedies written by and starring Jenny McCarthy come immediately to mind."
‑ Keith Phipps, AV Club
"A cut above the rest."
‑ Robert Dominguez, New York Daily News
"It attempts to be taken as a slasher film but it's not a slasher whatsoever, it's a gigantic tease."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"To help suspend disbelief, here's a tip--try watching it through gauze."
‑ Christopher Smith, Bangor Daily News (Maine)
"Aside from leading lady Lindy Booth and a directorial style that screams for a smarter screenplay, there's very little here that'll thrill the horror hounds and/or the gore gourmets."
‑ Scott Weinberg, DVD Clinic
"After so many years of memorable horror villains, what's particularly terrifying about some dude with a neon-orange ski mask and a ratty camouflage jacket?"
‑ Tim Grierson, L.A. Weekly
"Not only is it kind-of-sort-of-almost good, but it's also arguably the best horror movie in theaters right now -- thanks to a decent script with a couple of great twists."
‑ Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle
"Cry Wolf is certainly an impressive calling card for its co-writer/director Jeff Wadlow, even if ultimately it is too derivative to qualify as something to howl about."
‑ Anton Bitel, Eye for Film
"A fine attempt, and fine entertainment, but not one for the ages."
‑ Joe Utichi, FilmFocus
"Nothing about the plot has any real spark, besides the gimmicky set-up."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"Contains no actual wolves, but it does have some howlers."
‑ Scott Brown, Entertainment Weekly
"Cry_Wolf is not_scary."
‑ Lisa Rose, Newark Star-Ledger
"Mergulha nas velhas perseguições de sempre, sendo ainda mais prejudicado pelos diálogos pavorosamente ruins."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Unfortunately, the 12A rating means that the film lacks the two most essential ingredients for a teen horror flick: sex and gore."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"A tedious throwaway horror film without a logical marble in its head."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
