High-school horror. Troubled teenager Owen Matthews (Julian Morris) has recently joined prestigious Westlake Prep high school. When a young woman is found murdered near the campus, he joins a group of outsider students in spreading an internet rumour that she was murdered by a local serial killer known as 'The Wolf'. But when the students begin inventing other murders supposedly committed by the Wolf, new victims soon appear, killed in exactly the same way the group described. When no one believes their story, the students find themselves being hunted down, one by one, as their internet game turns into a terrifying reality.

The decision to make a serious teenage slasher film, post Scream, is a very brave move, without having the film descend into farce. However, Cry Wolf has more going for it than just a slasher tag.
Coupled with quite a genius script, it doesn't matter that it isn't, actually, very scary, or horrific, or even full of blood and gore. But what it will do will keep you watching just to find out what is going to happen next.
The slightly unimaginative plot outline (a group of teenagers start a hoax email about a serial killer, only for it, surprise surprise, to start coming true) doesn't do the film justice. The amount of twists and turns the storyline takes will always keep you guessing.
And although not full of horror, there are some genuinely clever moments. A halloween party where everyone dresses up like the description of the serial killer, but we know that the real killer is in there somewhere, is a tense and thrilling scene. Mobile phones and email alerts are used to great effect to keep us on the edge of our seats. In particular, a rather creepy moment involving a video phone call in a bathroom...
So although not brilliant, it is well worth the time, and therefore it's quite dissappointing that not all of the teenage performances are up to the same level as Jon Bon Jovi - a solid performance from the rock star, who really keeps the film grounded and realistic.

Format: DVD
"Avoid suspicion, manipulate your friends, and eliminate your enemies." That's the line that best sums up "Cry Wolf."

This movie sly jibes at the typical teen slasher movies that were popular in the late nineties, with shrieking blondes, knife-wielding killers, and plenty of bodies. But it's not only a good satire, but a good movie in its own right -- it deceives you right up to the end, with a complex twist that suddenly pulls the whole movie into focus.

Owen (Julian Morris) has just arrived at the prestigious Westlake high school, and it doesn't take him long to get acquainted with his jock roommate Tom (Jared Padalecki), the sexy school queen Dodger (Lindy Booth) and their pals. The gang all gathers together at the school chapel at night, to play an elaborate lying game -- until Dodger suggests they use a recent murder as part of an elaborate prank.

The kids send out a mass email saying that a mythical killer called the Wolf is on campus, about to kill again. But soon the prank becomes a series of vindictive, dirty secrets are revealed, and Owen is sent a series of threatening IMs from "The Wolf." And then suddenly the fake deaths they dreamed up begin to come true -- but what is real, and what is a deadly prank?

Don't go into "Cry Wolf" expecting lots of shrieky, bloody teen horror, or you'll be disappointed. Not much gore, not even much violence. It's actually more like a murder mystery (both before and after the fact), disguised as a teen slasher flick. Certainly it's a lot smarter than your typical high-school movie.

The complexity doesn't really show up until the finale, when the seemingly simple plot turns around and pulls all its strings tight. Hardly a plot hole to be found.

Format: DVD
Of course, the title of this review will only make sense to those familiar with the pop song of the same name by Norwegian popsters A-ha. The cheesy song, warbled with gusto by the angular faced Morten Harket, is considerably better than the film of the same name. In fact, running the tune on a continuous loop for 94 minutes is far more appealing than ever having to sit through this movie again.

Directed by Jeff Wadlow, who used the money he won at the 2002 Chrysler Million Dollar Film Festival to fund the project, film has a smart premise and big ambitions. Unfortunately the premise, kids at posh prep school play a lying game and invent a serial killer-who surprise to surprise comes real, is not exploited to any level of decent entertainment, horror, thriller or otherwise. It's badly acted by Julian Morris (amusingly over emphasising his English accent like he is auditioning for Twelfth Night), Jared Padalecki (who acted better when ensconced in wax in House of Wax also released this same year) and Jon Bon Jovi (out acted by his hair), while its surprisingly short on frights; or blood for that matter.

Clearly trying to craft a thinking mans slasher, Wadlow instead gets confused and winds up with a standard film of red herrings and annoying by the numbers privileged teenagers. The script is a garbled mess, stretching credibility to unacceptable levels, and even when it gets into a groove of "complex" speak, it comes out as false. The one shining light is Lindy Booth, who positively sauces her way thru the movie, making a standard horror female character far better than it is on the page. But alas, she can't drag the others with her, hamstrung by a rookie director out of his league. The subsequent non film career of all involved speaks volumes. 2/10
