Storyline

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 focus features

Way Better than your Expectations
16 September 2005 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

I was surprised about this movie, I expected a slasher with some plot that would be an interesting way to kill some time and entertain myself (I get passes, working at the movies has its advantages). In the end, I was shocked to see what kind of movie Cry Wolf is.

First off, the movie goes out and establishes the characters and in the end twists the words 'believe' and 'lie' extremely well and it'd be hard to go in depth without spoiling it for you. The ending also has 2-3 twists that are extremely well performed, also the acting is solid to.

One complaint was it was PG 13, but if you see the movie, YOU'LL KNOW WHY THE MOVIE IS PG 13 AND WHY THEY Didn't GO TO IN DEPTH IN THE KILLINGS.

In the end, see Cry Wolf, it is way better than what you think it was going to be and you'll like it.

I guarantee it.
