CRY_WOLF (2005)

Maybe I'm getting soft in my old age, but even with zero nudity, zero gore, almost zero blood, very little violence and maybe the lowest body count of any slasher movie ever...if you can even call CRY_WOLF a slasher movie...I kinda liked this movie. The biggest reason I liked it was the really hot red-haired chick from the DAWN OF THE DEAD remake and WRONG TURN was the main girl, but also because it was fairly well-written, except for the whole not being very violent bit.

A woman was recently murdered in the woods near a posh private high school. With Halloween approaching, some of the students think the murder is funny and decide to create a hoax mass email about how there's a serial killer called Wolf going around the country from campus to campus killing students and this is just the beginning of his reign of terror at Westlake Preparatory Academy. You can probably see how this is going to go.

I'd never even heard of CRY_WOLF before I bought it for $1 at a local used bookstore, but it wasn't bad and maybe even worth two dollars! The cast wasn't too annoying; the main chick is gorgeous; the story was entertaining even if it wasn't original; the school backgrounds looked nice; the pace was quick; I got a lot of laughs out of it...hell, give it a try and see what you think. It's at least worth a rent. The weirdest thing was even though it was released in 2005 it looks like it was made in 1997.
