Nobody believes a liar - even when they're telling the truth. When a young woman is found murdered, a group of local high school students decide to further scare their classmates by spreading online rumors that a serial killer called "The Wolf" is on the loose. By describing "The Wolf's" next victims, the students' game is to see how many people they can convince - and if anyone will uncover the lie. But when the described victims actually do start turning up dead, suddenly no one knows where the lies end and the truth begins. As someone or something begins hunting the students themselves, the game turns terrifyingly real. Written by

cry_wolf is without a doubt one of the best slasher movies i've ever seen. and i've seen hundreds of them. director jeff wadlow claimed he researched the horror genre intently before making this movie, and it really shows. cry_wolf is one of the smartest, scariest, and sexiest slashers ever created. with a diverse, likable cast, the characters of cry_wolf prove to be people you can relate to -- and people you would love to hang out with. and not only that, but the characters are extremely intelligent. you won't find yourself screaming, "don't turn on the light!" or "don't go down there!" this time around. the characters are just like us -- regular, smart people -- who use their common sense to try and survive. and the performances given by the actors and actresses are very impressive. from the hotheaded tom (jared padalecki) to the moody regina (kristy wu), the stars of this film really gave it their all, and you can tell. this movie is a lot of fun. it really makes you jump a lot. and it feels so new and refreshing. this is a movie that will never get old, even fifty years from now. it will still fit right in. as for the killer, the wolf is terrifying. i never get scared of movies, but i feel really intimidated by him. this isn't like scream. the killer isn't a joke. he doesn't make you laugh. he is pure horror. every time he comes onto the screen i feel the fear pounding inside of me. as for the music, the soundtrack is incredible. the perfect blend of alternative, rock, punk, dance, and hip hop. and i wouldn't dare spoil the awesome twist ending for anyone. go see it on September 16th and see it for yourself. you won't be disappointed.
