What was Ricci thinking??By Guy Johnson from Norwich , 14 May 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]I had the misfortune of watching this film a few days ago at the cinema and only stayed til the end to see just how much worse it could get. The usually excellent Ricci cant even save this stinker. The plot which has been borrowed from every werewolf film ever made is terrible and I wont even go into the CGI (scooby-doo was much better, seriously!!) A very bad film, I understand the film is supposed to be part comedy but I reckon the whole thing is a complete joke! Avoid

Burn after viewingBy Hommdog (7 reviews) from Nottingham , 30 Mar 2010Do not watch this film. If, for any reason, you are tricked into watching it, destroy all copies immediately to prevent this visual plague from infecting the movie industry any more.
It lies in wait on the shelf of the rental shop, masquerading as a serious horror film with a decent actress. Do not be fooled by this eronious exterior. very soon you will be watching makeup covered wolfsuits flicking the Vs at people. After watching, I gave serious thought into investing my whole life in trying to invent a time machine so that I could go back and stop myself from watching this visual discourtesy. Be warned.

Wrong genre?By Scuttlebutt (1 review) from Bury St. Edmunds , 16 Oct 2009I'm not a big fan of horror films in general, but looked this up after hearing Joshua Jackson was in it... and I actually quite enjoyed it.
Granted it will probably horrify (sorry) true fans of the genre for all the wrong reasons - my mother actually thought I was watching a comedy I was laughing so much - but if you overlook the fact it's supposed to be a horror film it's actually a rather good movie. The dog is an interesting twist but my favorite moment has to be Christina Ricci insulting the werewolf... definitely laughter inducing!
Another wolf film...By KB13 (44 reviews) from Aberdeen , 26 Jun 2009Yes it was another wolf film and was very predictable but i quite liked it. Joshua Jackson was also ok to look at!!! Definately add this to your list!
Fun but a little disappointing for Wes.By tootieluvsheroes (1 review) from England , 18 Jun 2009Cursed is a fun film and certainly has some hilarious moments wether intentional or not. Not a scary picture so if you're looking for horror and gore this isn't the movie you want, although there are a few moments that make you jump. To tame for my taste, I would've loved more gore and violence. The story could easily have been expanded and more could have been told about the werewolf which would have made the movie more interesting and other storylines, such as the gay guy pretending to be a straight stereotypical jock, could have been completely removed (though i love seeing the gorgeous Milo Ventimiglia on screen no matter how pointlessly).Overall a fun dvd, perfect cure for boredom or a slumber party but i expected more from Wes Craven. 3 & half stars!
Fun, probably for genre addicts onlyBy jennibee (11 reviews) from Colchester , 03 Jun 2009If you loved the mid nineties rush of teeny bop horrors such as Scream, I Know What You Did etc then give this a go as it will deliver everything you should expect from the desciption- pretty young amercians running around for some reasonably predicatble but still jumpy scares with some fairly good effects and punchy dialogue.
It's not terrifying, it aint winning any awards for originality either but it's completely watchable and I'll stick my neck out to say one of Josh Jackson's better big screen performances.
