Cursed (Unrated Version)
Ellie (played by talented Christina Ricci) is a television producer who supports her teenage brother Jimmy (Jesse Eisenberg). When out at night, a strange beast attacks Ellie and Jimmy. Jimmy is the first to figure out that the beast was a werewolf, and must convince Ellie of this.     In the meantime, Ellie seems to gain more confidence, giving herself more style in her dress and not being such a tool to her distant boyfriend Jake (Joshua Jackson). The film drags a bit through …

Cursed is not even slightly scary. This movie is about 2 siblings that are looking for the werewolf that bit them. The movie is full of CGIs that look like the came straight out of Scooby Doo (the movie). It's just bad, not even a bit entertaining. This is not the kind of movie I expect from Wes Craven. Scooby Doo was scarier than this.

"Cursed" tried to double-dip its way into the horror genre. First, it used Kevin Williamson ("Scream") as the writer in order to bring in some funny yet still reasonably scary plotlines. Secondly, master horror director, Wes Craven, was brought on to guide this shipwreck along. With both of those pieces in place, you'd think that this flick would have been pretty good. Instead, "Cursed" managed to be neither funny NOR scary.    The story is textbook. Siblings that don't seem …

For years, vampires have been the darling of horror movies. I'm not quite sure why people are so fascinated by vampires, but there's about one vampire movie released every year. Zombies come in a close second and have been gaining an edge over vampires in recent years as can be seen by the popularity of such movies as LAND OF THE DEAD, SHAUN OF THE DEAD, the remake of DAWN OF THE DEAD, the RESIDENT EVIL series, etc. Of all the undead creatures that Hollywood makes movies about, it is werewolves …

I'll tell you "Cursed" doesn't take itself very seriously as a horror film, or as a comedy. It seems to be trying to decide which it wanted to be, and hadn't made up its mind in time for the closing credits. There are a few genuine laughs to be found throughout, and some nifty references to the bygone days of Universal Creature Features, but for the most part this is a silly, airbrushed effort, filled with Beautiful People acting stupidly.     I should have considered myself …

If you have nothing to do and you need something to watch then this is the movie to turn on but if you need a movie for you and your friends to watch on Halloween or just to get a good scream or two then don't even bother with this. The story is very common you know a werewolf is running around and killing people but in this the mystery is who is the werewolf. They actually do a great job of hiding who the killer is. The special effects are good the acting is well done but the movie just isn't scary …

Perhaps it's the curse of the werewolf. Maybe that's why so many actors and actresses that are normally great deliver such poor performances in this over acted, under directed, piece of formula writing. Though I am a fan of `bad' b horror movies, even my love of them couldn't help me tolerate this film.     I thought about how to write this review without giving any spoilers, well, watch five minutes of the film, then think about the next formula, pat, unexciting thing that could …
