9/10: Bizarrely Entertaining
Monday, July 18, 2005

It's hard to tell what genre this movie is... It isn't a horror movie... and even though many parts or hilariously entertaining it's not a comedy... I'm gonna say it's more a thriller/ spoof but even then it's not quite that...Seeing other user comments i realized this is a movie you either get or you just don't...It opens up at a carnival with Shannon Elizabeth and Mya getting their fortune read by Portia DeRossi, who warns them of danger by the moon. This might be horridly boring and predictable to you unless you see the spoof-like ness.Now, up until Jimmy (Jamie Eisenberg) 's dog, Zipper, ran away i had forgotten Milo Ventimiglia was in this movie... i was immediately excited. I decided he played a good jerk as Jimmy's crush's boyfriend, Bo...Then of course Christina Ricci's character, Ellie gets in a car accident Shannon Elizabeth...

1/10: slightly scarier than Teenwolf
Monday, June 27, 2005

Before I get to the review I think it should be noted that Corey Feldman was supposed to be in this movie, but his scenes were cut. Normally that information would bode well for a movie, but not in this case. All you really need to know about this movie is that after seeing it you'll be left wondering how bad Feldman's scenes must have been that they weren't good enough to make it into this pile of garbage.This movie is a less clever version of Scream with a video game werewolf tossed in. The only thing worse than the plot "twists" are the ridiculous cgi effects.********spoilers********The movie begins with the over done scene involving teenagers at a carnival encountering a fortune teller who sees blood in their futures. This particular fortune teller seems to deal in the immediate future because less than 5 minutes later the girl who's palm was read is...

7/10: A Film That Was Truly Cursed
Tuesday, January 24, 2006

Cursed" was a great idea that sprung from the mind of Kevin Williamson ("Scream," "I Know What You Did Last Summer."). But it seemed that the script and the production WAS truly cursed. Due to problems with the script and production (including re-castings), the film had some major problems before it was finally released. I am curious to see what the original would have looked like.Ellie (Christina Ricci) and Jimmy are siblings whose parents are dead. They also don't seem to get along much. Jimmy is also getting bullied at school. One night, they get into an accident in which they hit what looks life a dog, crashing into another car in the process. As they are attempting to help the passenger, a wolf grabs the passenger, apparently to have a midnight snack. In the process of saving her, both Ellie and Jimmy get bitten by the wolf. Jimmy suspects that they were attacked by a werewolf...

2/10: This movie is Cursed to have a short life
Friday, February 25, 2005

One full moon night in Los Angeles, Ellie (Christina Ricci) and her brother Jimmy (Jesse Eisenberg) were returning home when an animal glanced off their windshield and caused them to swerve and hit another car. Both are not hurt in the accident, but while helping the girl in the other car, they are attacked and scratched by a big animal. Jimmy believes the animal was a werewolf. Both begin to get an increase in physical strength and keen senses. They discover that what has happened to them is part of a werewolf curse. They must break the curse before they become werewolfs themselves. The first half of the movie was your typical horror film with the car crash and werewolf scenes. And then the writer (Kevin Williamson) starts writing a comedy with one-liners. The last half of the movie was just awful, because the storyline just didn't go anywhere. For a horror movie, I didn't jump out...

4/10: More a chihuahua than a werewolf
Friday, May 25, 2007

As formulaic as its generic title suggests, Cursed's paper-thin premise has a werewolf attack and bite Ellie (Christina Ricci, badly wasted) and her brother Jimmy (Jesse Eisenberg) after a car crash. The two start changing and yada yada yada.Cursed was written by Kevin Williamson and directed by Wes Craven; in those years, the two had just delivered the excellent Scream and Scream 2. Sadly, this is the anti-Scream with werewolves. Scream was clever, Cursed is dumb; Scream was funny, Cursed is boring; Scream was original, Cursed looks like the product of a "Make your own PG-13 horror movie" plot generator. Relative highlights are, for their unintentionally comedic quality, the attack of a weredog and a minor character's abrupt comeuppance, unceremoniously grabbed by an off-screen werewolf. Apart for those, Cursed is the kind of movie which elicits in viewers a single emotion: a sense of smug, bored superiority.For a much better werewolf movie...
