Movie Summary

Director:
Jeff Wadlow
Released:
2005
Rating:
PG-13
Cry_Wolf is a 2005 horror film directed and written by Jeff Wadlow. Jeff Wadlow won $1,000,000 at a Chrysler Million Dollar Film Festival and used it to finance the film. Eight fun friends decide to play a game entitled Cry Wolf where one of the players is marked as a wolf and the rest of the group tries to figure out who it is. The game ends up turning deadly when a real serial killer using the IM screen name "Wolf" begins to write eerie messages to the group and also leave surprises like a blood-soaked piercing stud. Each of the members of the group begin to suspect each other and no one is sure of the identity of "Wolf." The film was a financial success, generating $15 million dollars from a budget of $1 million, which lead the director to continue to make films such as Never Back Down. The film was also notable for Jon Bon Jovi's portrayal of Rich Walker. The Cry_Wolf DVD also included an "Unrated" version which contained four extra minutes of film.moreless

Metacritic Score

  • 70

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Thomas

    A clever teen thriller with intricate plotting, deft characterizations, sharp ensemble performances and a darkly ironic twist at the end.

  • 60

    The New York Times Janet Maslin

    First-time screenwriters Jeff Wadlow and Beau Bauman prove more adept at staging mind games than creating chills and thrills for the audience.

  • 50

    Variety

    Almost totally reliant on red herrings and the viewer's nervous reflexes.
