Trivia

Rick Baker did the werewolf effects for the original version of the film but once Bob Weinstein and Miramax ordered re-shoots all the scenes with Baker's effects were deleted and KNB had to take over. But even most of their work didn't make it into the final film because Miramax and Bob Weinstein thought that their effects didn't look good so they added lot of CGI into the film to cover up all the practical effects, like death scenes and almost all the werewolf scenes. There are some promotional stills that were shown in magazines like Fangoria at the time of the production which show some of the "removed" practical gore effects. See more »

Goofs

After Jimmy draws the pentagram on his hand to connect the dots, he holds up his hand to show his sister and the drawing is different from the one shown before. The outline is much darker. See more »

Predictable Collection of Clichés
14 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

After five years without directing a film, I bought this DVD expecting a good return of Wes Craven to the genre horror teen movie. I like his last works in this genre ("Scream 1, 2 & 3") and also the drama "Music of the Heart", and Christina Ricci is very cool. Unfortunately, "Cursed" is a forgettable and predictable collection of clichés. It is amazing how the viewer can predict the next scene! Further, it is amazing how easy is to replace a fancy car in Hollywood: Ellie wrecks her car in the middle of the night, and on the next day she has a brandy new car. Jake breaks the window of the driver of the new car, and on the next sequence we see Ellie driving in a rainy night in high speed without disheveling her hair. Ellie's brother Jimmy unsuccessfully tries to be funny. If you want to see a great werewolf movie, there are many excellent options, but you can forget "Cursed", which is only recommended for killing time. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Amaldiçoado" ("Cursed")
