The team behind the Scream trilogy, director Wes Craven and screenwriter Kevin Williamson, present another entry in the teen-horror genre with Cursed. Starring Christina Ricci and Jesse Eisenberg, the film tells the story of two siblings who have to battle a werewolf that has been wreaking havoc on their neighbors, just as they learn that they might be marked with "the sign of the beast," and may become werewolves themselves. Along with Shannon Elizabeth and Judy Greer, Cursed also co-stars Dawson Creek alumnus Joshua Jackson, as well as R&B star Mya. -- (C) Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Makes you long for the days when teenage werewolves were beady-eyed, slavering versions of hairy-palm jokes."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"The special effects are particularly lame, and an insult to the proud werewolf tradition of An American Werewolf in London or the even better The Howling."
‑ Stephen Hunter, Washington Post
"Dumb werewolf movie may leave you feeling cursed."
‑ Beth Pratt, Common Sense Media
"It really never deserved to be more than a quickie TV-movie on the WB, where it would've aired around Halloween and then faded into oblivion."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"Until this past Friday, the worst werewolf film ever made was, hairy hands down, Mike Nichols' Wolf. Cursed now assumes that dubious distinction and someone is going to have to try very hard to wrestle it away."
‑ Rick Kisonak, Film Threat
"Poor special effects, a silly looking werewolf and clunky comic writing help to spoil what should have been a fun B-movie."
‑ Kim Morgan, L.A. Weekly
"The scariest thing about this movie is the incredible waste of once-vital talent."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"This is "Scream" werewolf style..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"full review in Greek"
‑ Joseph Proimakis, Movies for the Masses
"film whose authors require so many excuses doesn't deserve an audience"
‑ Dragan Antulov, Draxblog Movie Reviews
"The scariest thing in the movie is a cameo by Scott Baio."
‑ Ben Kenigsberg, Village Voice
"A third-rate effort, with a weak script, cheap-looking effects and no genuine frights."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"What can you say about a horror film when its spookiest cast member plays the innocent victim?"
‑ Steve Biodrowski, ESplatter
"A procession of silly startlements: a sudden loud sound here, a mysterious hand creeping in there. This isn't scary, it's irritating. And then it's tiresome."
‑ Kurt Loder, MTV
"...boredom never quite sets in thanks to the engaging performances..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
