    4.0 out of 5 stars A Ton of Fun December 27, 2005
    It's a little hard to believe that a group of high-school students get off on playing a childish game like the one at the beginning of this movie, but since I learned the similar game in college, I guess that lends an air of credibility. And I suppose the REAL thrill is sneaking out of their dorms late at night and meeting together and perhaps rich kids at prep schools like stroking their intellects by trying to outwit each other (I thought only college students did that?) Nevertheless, the atmosphere of this movie is so steeped in small-town ambience, the locations are so gorgeous, and the cast are so capable that honestly, no matter how silly or contrived anything in this movie gets, I ate it up. If you don't think you'd be swayed by those things, you'll probably pick out every flaw in this movie and you'll probably hate it and you probably shouldn't watch it. But if you're like me, the flaws will coast right over your head and you'll love every second of this movie even as you watch it over and over and over again.

    First off, I appreciated how these "teens" actually looked young. They're not the 30-something teens we see in many movies today. And their plights are laced with actual emotion. I cared about Dodger (Lindy Booth) and her familial situation and her teen girl angst, caught between selfish concerns and caring about others. I cared about Julian Morris's character, his absentee father who didn't deign to take his son's calls, and his desire to impress the girl he likes with arrogant displays of his intelligence. Every character here, from the token ethnic guy and his sweetly slutty girlfriend to the "bad boy" with the piercings, to the oafish roommate who's a slacker, felt real because they felt true.

    5.0 out of 5 stars surprisingly awesome December 21, 2005
    By Caitlin
    Cry_Wolf isn't another one of your typical teen horror movies and it's not just another slasher flick. I was kind of worried (after seeing House of Wax) that this movie would be another gruesome, pointless waste of my time, but that's not the case. I initially only wanted to see this movie because I've played the online game so many times (which might have helped me understand the story) still, after watching it I was so surprised with its quality. The twists and turns to the plot were so surprising that I was left staring at my television in shock, with my mouth wide open.

    Don't be fooled because the thing that really almost turned me completely away from the movie was the trailers.. if you've seen them they're very misleading. The scene with the girl getting murdered in the bathroom in her underwear makes the movie look like an ordinary teenage thriller, but really it's a mind boggling mystery for the viewer to solve. I thought the casting was nearly perfect. Most of the stars are new to the movie scene, but two particularly stood out in my mind: Jared Padalecki and Jon Bon Jovi (who knew he could act?!). The other newcomers are also worthy of recognition for making the story believable. The script might have had some flaws, but the final twists in the plot overrule everything else. So, if you haven't seen the movie yet I highly recommend you go do so.

    5.0 out of 5 stars NOT A HORROR MOVIE April 15, 2006
    This is one of those movies that got marketed the wrong way. It looks very very much like a teen slasher movie: but, rest assured, it is not. If you're looking for gross out deaths, look elsewhere. If you're looking for a lumbering serial killer who walks slowly after his victimes, look elsewhere. This is a teen suspense-thriller with a very tidy and very slick ending. Maybe you'll guess who the Big Bad is before the end, but the particulars of it should still impress you. Unfortunately for this film, it got marketed to the wrong audience and suffered poor theatrical attendance because of it. I would actually give this 4 STARS but I'm trying to even out all the 1 STAR reviews from the halfwits below who actually enjoyed the remakes of The Fog and When A Stranger Calls.

    "Avoid suspicion, manipulate your friends, and eliminate your enemies." That's the line that best sums up "Cry Wolf."

    This movie sly jibes at the typical teen slasher movies that were popular in the late nineties, with shrieking blondes, knife-wielding killers, and plenty of bodies. But it's not only a good satire, but a good movie in its own right -- it deceives you right up to the end, with a complex twist that suddenly pulls the whole movie into focus.

    Owen (Julian Morris) has just arrived at the prestigious Westlake high school, and it doesn't take him long to get acquainted with his jock roommate Tom (Jared Padalecki), the sexy school queen Dodger (Lindy Booth) and their pals. The gang all gathers together at the school chapel at night, to play an elaborate lying game -- until Dodger suggests they use a recent murder as part of an elaborate prank.

    The kids send out a mass email saying that a mythical killer called the Wolf is on campus, about to kill again. But soon the prank becomes a series of vindictive, dirty secrets are revealed, and Owen is sent a series of threatening IMs from "The Wolf." And then suddenly the fake deaths they dreamed up begin to come true -- but what is real, and what is a deadly prank?

    Don't go into "Cry Wolf" expecting lots of shrieky, bloody teen horror, or you'll be disappointed. Not much gore, not even much violence. It's actually more like a murder mystery (both before and after the fact), disguised as a teen slasher flick. Certainly it's a lot smarter than your typical high-school movie.

    The complexity doesn't really show up until the finale, when the seemingly simple plot turns around and pulls all its strings tight. Hardly a plot hole to be found.

    A for effort. It's no Scream, but it's way better than the flock of terrible horror films that came out in the mid-2000s.
