When you consider its unfortunate production history,Cursedturned out surprisingly well as a werewolf thriller that horror buffs will appreciate. It's hardly the disaster critics made it out to be, but extensive rewriting, reshooting, recasting, and lengthy delays in production and release (including the elimination of R-rated gore to earn a PG-13 rating) clearly took their toll. The result is a fun but flawed monster-show that begins when a young talk-show producer (Christina Ricci) and her teenaged brother (Jesse Eisenberg) are bitten by a werewolf, setting the stage for a horror-in-Hollywood scenario that reunites director Wes Craven and screenwriter Kevin Williamson, creators of theScreamfranchise. What could have been a classic horror comedy is instead a fairly solid, if unremarkable, exercise in Los Angeles lycanthropy, featuring werewolf makeup by Rick Baker (combined with CGI transformation effects, of course) and some of Williamson's snappy dialogue and trademark pop-culture references. The title ofCurseddoubles as a description of this movie's ultimate fate, but in a market filled with straight-to-video horror fodder, it's anything but a lost cause. The supporting cast includes Shannon Elizabeth, Portia de Rossi and Joshua Jackson, so genre aficionados should definitely check it out.--Jeff Shannon
Werewolves giving people the finger? GIVE ME A BREAK! Avoid at all costs...in fact, it's cheaper to avoid. *Cursed: Unrated Edition DVD* Hmmmm...I just don't know where to begin. To sum it up, the acting is terrible, the story is lame and the special effects aren't really anything to howl at either. For god sakes there's a werewolf, towards the end, that flips off someone because she called it fat and said it had a big butt. Sound funny? Well the movie wasn't meant to be funny. It works with Freddie Kruger, but not a crazed blood thirsty werewolf. Look I don't want to dwell on one thing because there are so many things that made this movie terrible but I couldn't help but notice that Christina Ricci was really awful in this flop of a werewolf movie. Her acting looked so rehearsed and unmotivated. It was just so obvious she wasn't into this movie or perhaps she just sucks in all her movies and "THE Addams Family" was the only good movie she's ever done? *SIDE NOTE* Is it me or could a skilled pilot land a plane on that forehead of hers? Anyway, trust me, this movie is crap! I waisted my money on it and I wish I'd taken other bad reviews to heart. This movie is an insult to werewolves everywhere...well...werewolf movies at least. Look, if your wanting a good werewolf movie you probably already have it in your collection..."An American Werewolf In London". Dust it off and enjoy it again...it blows "Cursed" away by 43,255 times(don't ask how I came up with that figure, it's complicated). "Cursed" is a curse on werewolf movies everywhere...PERIOD! IN FINAL: BAD ACTING, BAD STORY LINE and BAD ACTING(that's right, I mentioned it twice), make for a really bad movie...and that's "CURSED".
I give this movie 2 THUMBS DOWN and THE FINGER ! ! !
Horrible Worst movie I ever seen, avoid watching at all costs. It tries to grab your attention, then turns the plot into a complete joke and turns it into a car crash of a movie. Dont spend a dime on this piece of garbage.I liked it This horror movie breaks a lot of rules and really ends up being a comedy which is as fun to watch as the old "Nightmare on Elm St" movies. A werewolf giving someone the finger? That's brilliant! And loved the twist on the jerk, jock, homophob turning out to be gay. I wasn't expecting that at all.
