Editors Note
Note When Owen Matthews (Julian Morris) makes up a fake, very detailed story about a serial killer and e-mails it to all the students at Westlake--which is yet another private school his father (Gary Cole) has sent him off to--he has no idea what he has begun. Soon his fictional murderer, "the Wolf," is sneaking around campus, scaring the students and leaving behind a trail of blood. What started out as a relatively innocent game between a group of friends has now turned real, and Owen seems to be the only one who can stop it. But the deeper he goes, the more he doesn't like what he finds out--until he becomes the ultimate target. Cowriter Jeff Wadlow's feature-film directing debut, CRY WOLF, has chills and thrills around every corner, playing off of contemporary genre clichés to deliver a funny and frightening movie. The last part of the film, especially, is filled with surprise after surprise. Morris is excellent as the new student troublemaker, and Lindy Booth provides good support as Dodger, the leader of the group and a potential love interest for Owen. Musician Jon Bon Jovi stars as a cool journalism teacher, and performance artist Anna Deavere Smith has a cameo as the school's headmistress. The alternapop soundtrack includes songs from Low, 22-20s, Helio Sequence, Cake, and Classic featuring JoJo Pellegrino.

Review There are surprises intrinsic to the storyline, in which the group concocts a scheme to link a recent local murder to a supposed serial killer. Via email, Dodger and Owen manufacture an m.o. for their killer -- all of which suddenly starts coming true...There's not enough tension to make the viewer care that muchfor the various hoaxes and faux-slayings perpetrated by the film's largely unlikable gang of privileged brats.

Review Is there anything scarier than a threatening text message? Sure: Werewolves, vampires, killer diseases, and comedies written by and starring Jenny McCarthy come immediately to mind. Strangely, that hasn't stopped horror-movie makers from trying to squeeze new scares out of new technology. Cry_Wolf is the latest to put an IM and e-mail skin on a slasher-movie body. The results aren't awful, just awfully unnecessary.
