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.

It attempts to be taken as a slasher film but it's not a slasher whatsoever, it's a gigantic tease.

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.

Contains no actual wolves, but it does have some howlers.

Cinema em Cena

Mergulha nas velhas perseguições de sempre, sendo ainda mais prejudicado pelos diálogos pavorosamente ruins.
