Frightmaster Wes Craven brings you the terror of werewolves and a cast of today's hottest young stars in CURSED. Christina Ricci (Monster), Jesse Eisenberg, Joshua Jackson, Judy Greer and Milo Ventimiglia find themselves caught up in an unimaginable horror - a werewolf loose in Los Angeles! Unstoppably frightening and undeniably fun, it's the latest hit thriller from director Craven and writer Kevin Williamson - the team that thrilled you with Scream!
Although some of the effects were a little ordinary, this was quite a clever, involving little film. It was intelligently put together and combined a knowing awareness of the genre with some tense moments -
A werewolf movie with no bite

Sister and brother, Ellie and Jimmy are driving home late one night through Mulholland Drive when something monstrous crosses their path. One nasty road accident later, the passenger of the car they just crashed into is dragged off into the woods by a mostly unseen creature. Ellie and Jimmy do not escape unscathed themselves. The creature has mildly injured them both, and soon brother and sister are experiencing strange heightened senses. For Jimmy, it's a blessing in disguise as he returns to high school and battles the school bully with his new found powers. Though Ellie feels compelled to try and discover the identity of the beast in time to save both herself and her brother from the curse. The biggest problem with 'Cursed' is that as a film it can't quite decide on what it wants to be, a horror, a comedy or a farce. Kevin Williamson's script is a dull patchwork of tired old clichés, and for the most part this is a cheap 'Scream with werewolves' clone, filled with beautiful people acting badly, with some decidedly average special effects. This film might have fared better in the 90s, but by todays standards this really doesn't deliver the goods.
