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

When excellence is delivered when mediocrity is expected
23 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

wow! all i can say about this film is that it will go beyond your expectations. cry_wolf is amazing. i know we have all seen the trailers and thought of it as a teen slasher thriller with no real substance. this movie is full of substance and style. cry_wolf is a classic rendition of the boy who cried wolf with a little twists and turns. this movie has it all. some jumpy scenes, shocks, a little humor, fine women. its overall a great experience. go see it and you will wonder "why do people see this film so poorly when its in fact a great film?". unlike the Emily Rose crap movie, this is a horror film with a purpose: to entertain the self as well as to teach us all not to lie. because who will believe the liar even when they are telling the truth? nobody! which is why cry wolf has a purpose. the real surprise of the movie was how its LOW budget of a million bucks produced such a great film while there are Michael bay films costing 122 times as much and they are sorry excuses for action thrillers when THIS is the poster child of thrillers with some mystery and a hint of horror. the ending will surprise and Jon Bon Jovi will impress. that is all
