i watched this movie expecting a scream/i know what you did... type movie. what i watched was a well put together movie that kept me involved and guessing the whole time. the timing for this movies release was bad since it followed so many slasher film and teen movies. because if it came first it would have set the standard for those genres extremely high.

Low intensity, watered down horror; with a twist...

"To be honest, I actually find the concept behind this film to be rather intriguing. I hate that it was thrown together so sloppily, because now that the `twist' has been used it will be harder for others to use it more creatively. That said, the film is far from the train-wreck that so many want you to think that it is. I'm keeping this short, since I don't want to give away too much (and for some reason I'm getting used to this `short review' idea). Basically, the film consists of some school kids who decide to prank the school by creating a fake killer who winds up spawning a real killer who starts hacking up some kids, except everyone thinks the kids are still `crying wolf'. Acting wise, it's hit and miss (Julian Morris and Lindy Booth being the `hit', Bon Jovi being the `miss'), but overall it's the structure of the film that kind of sinks it. The PG-13 rating doesn't help much, but then again I have seen some `horror' films that made the best of their rating restrictions by creating surmountable terror without the gore, and `Cry_Wolf' could have done that as well, but it lacks the intensity needed to make this film as good as it could have been. Consider this light-weight teen horror with a twist. It's worth seeing at least once."
