Product Description

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 (THE VILLAGE), Joshua Jackson (TV's DAWSON'S CREEK), Judy Greer (THE VILLAGE), and Milo Ventimiglia (TV's GILMORE GIRLS) find themselves caught up in an unimaginable horror! A werewolf loose in Los Angeles changes the lives of three young adults who, after being mauled by the beast, learn that the only way to break the curse put upon them is to kill the one who started it all! Unstoppably frightening and undeniably fun, it's the latest hit from the team that thrilled you with SCREAM!

3.0 out of 5 stars Werewolves of L.A. July 23, 2005
CURSED is the story of a brother and sister who are attacked by a werewolf and become infected. Prior to this incident, Ellie's (Christina Ricci) biggest problems were an emotionally distant boyfriend and a snotty PR representative at her company, while Jimmy (Jesse Eisenberg) mostly had to put up with the homophobic bullies at his high school. I guess sometimes we just don't know when we have it good. Jimmy, a comic book geek, is quick to accept the possibility of what has happened to them and begins research immediately, while Ellie remains skeptical until the physical evidence becomes irrefutable.

With Wes Craven's track record (even his lesser films at least dealt with more original subject matter) one had to wonder why he wanted to make such a formulaic movie about such a well-worn concept. [Edit: I have since learned that this movie was a result of contractual obligation.] The first act of the movie felt quite tired, with dozens of unimaginative scares that have been seen time and time again. A dream sequence in particular is a real groaner. However, it actually does get better as it goes on. While it still retains an air of predictability, it did surprise me at times. I really thought it was obvious who the lycanthropic antagonist was. I wasn't completely wrong, but I wasn't exactly right, either.

In the end, CURSED is a passably entertaining movie made so primarily by the cast, which also includes Joshua Jackson (THE SAFETY OF OBJECTS) and Judy Greer (ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT). Portia de Rossi (also ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT) appears in a small role, and Scott Baio appears as himself. As a bonus, we get to see Shannon Elizabeth (JAY AND SILENT BOB STRIKE BACK) get ripped in half. Always a treat.

The unrated DVD contains a number of featurettes: a making-of with cast interview clips, one on effects, one on editing, and a humorous short film on "making a werewolf." There is also effects commentary for certain scenes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Craven's Campy "Cursed" February 24, 2005
By Daryl B
I thought this movie was a lot of fun. We have all seen the same old werewolf movies but this one doesn't take itself so seriously and just has a lot of fun.

The story centers around a sister (played by Cristina Ricci)and her younger brother, who are involved in an accident with an unknown animal and both are bitten by the unseen monster. Soon both realize that something is not right as they begin to exhibit the signs of a human who has bitten by a werewolf.

There are twists and turns and Craven makes you think the villian is one person or the next. The other actors (Joshua Jackson plays Ricci's love interest) have fun with their roles. There are also funny cameos by Scott Baio and Craig Kilborn.

If you are looking for a gory, spine tingling thrill fest, you may be disappointed. This is a campy film that gives you some quick scares but mainly plays for a lot of laughs. Go into it with it with a carefree attitude and I think you will enjoy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lowered Expectations... November 26, 2009
I avoided seeing CURSED for years, after hearing all of the talk about just how terrible it was. So, I finally got hold of a copy and watched it last night, figuring that I was about to witness a total catastrophe. Well, perhaps it was my extremely low expectations, but I actually enjoyed it! While it's certainly no GINGER SNAPS or AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON, CURSED isn't the disastrous failure I'd heard about. Christina Ricci (Addams Family 1 and 2, Sleepy Hollow, Monster, The Gathering) plays her lead role w/ ease and humour. She is a gothic chick without even having to work at it! Her features alone make her the next Barbara Steel! CURSED also has a decent plot and pacing. The CGI transformation effects are passable, but still make me mourn for the days of latex! The cast, apart from Ms. Ricci, is typical Craven / Williamson, mostly young, shallow, yet beautiful people. CURSED also has far fewer in-jokes and less self-aware humour than the SCREAM films. So, it's a fairly straightforward werewolf movie. If you love Christina Ricci, werewolves, or Wes Craven, then CURSED should give you a boost...

5.0 out of 5 stars cool hip werewolf movie October 7, 2007
After hearing all the problems they had making this movie it turned out to be a really cool flick. Wes craven did a great job with it! I really enjoyed this movie. People who thrash this flick just don't know how to let go an enjoy it for what it is, popcorn entertainment. Sure there are better flicks but come on I've seen ALOT worse. So just sit back and enjoy!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Just Fun. April 18, 2005
!Heather's Teenage Son!

Yeah. This movie was a great way to blow time off in the theater, and anyone who is a fan of Wes Craven or horror-comedies will get a kick out of this film. It's not gonna be a classic like Nightmare On Elm Street or The Hills Have Eyes, but it's still fun...and the CGI werewolves are actually good! There is one scene that has some bad CGI, and that's the dog. And this movie is far from perfect. You can tell what scenes were reshot sometimes, and which ones weren't. And you could even tell where they dubbed over profanity in one scene. So, I'm definately getting the Unrated version of this flick, where Shannon Elizabeth supposedly crawls on the ground to try to escape...and it's just the top half of her body. So, overall, this is a fun, campy little horror flick that I'd reccomend to those who like 80's horror.

PS...GET THE UNRATED DVD! Not the PG13 one! ;)

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad - not great.
An interesting werewolf movie with many predictable elements as well as a few twists. The acting was decent; the special effects were mediocre; the ending was weak.

Make sure to note the "comedy" aspect of this; otherwise, it would be just a terrible movie.

My player says it is 1 hour 36 minutes 58 seconds long. Which version is that?

Full Screen?
Amazon is wrong, it's widescreen. On the back, it says 2.40:1. I didn't measure the picture and pull out my pocket calculator to see if that number is accurate, but it is somewhat letterboxed on a widescreen tv.
