It's a celebration, bitches. And werewolves rock out with their cock out.

For once I'd like to see Kevin Williamson write a horror movie with adult characters who don't spout smartass. I'll get my adolescent lyncathrope fix watching "Teen Wolf" and its Justin Bateman-studded sequel, thank you.

...speaking of former 80s sitcom stars, I don't think Scott Baio will ever have second career wind, and it especially won't come from his work in "Cursed" (like Neil Patrick stealing the whole "Kumar" movie playing himself). Baio needs a juicy role in a late night infomercial, or at least try to lobby for "Zapped 3: Get Zappier."

I've been screwed by Rob Zombie's House of a 1000 Corpses once (although Devil's Rejects looks promising if he gets it right this time), but movies held up like this one was over and over again tend to bite me on the ass. And not in a good way. But I love Wes Craven and I love Christina Ricci. So I'll give this a shot and pray it doesn't become the fodder most horror movies right now have become and I figure the damn thing out in the first ten min's of film. Although I knew what was going o happen in Dog Soliders just from the commercial and was still entertained and blown away by how good it was. Now if Craven could just convince Johnny Depp to do a vampire movie before he turns 50 and loses those boyish, ever young looks we'll be in business.

they all called me crazy but look at what happened. He killed Shannon Elizabeth.

Let's hope Wes nails this one, time will tell. As an added bonus, Harry gets another dose of his beloved werewolves. P.S. Let the CG bashing begin.

Otherwise everything you've done to try and fix Cursed seems pretty pointless. Keep yer werewolves bullshit free Miramax. p.s Great review Quint.

He also created the WB's "Glory Days" and wrote "Scream," "Scream 2." "The Faculty," and "Teaching Mrs. Tingle." He may be the shittiest writer alive. But I'm certain "Cursed" will be fantastic!

what can I say? something about people still being alive when they're missing body parts freaks me out.

Bring on the biped werewolves. Thats what was actually good about the Van Helsing werewolves. Werewolves are half man half beast. I hate movies that are supposed to be werewolf movies but in reallity the people just turn in to big dogs. I wan to see a monster not a stunt double from Call of the Wild.

I totally agree that Werewolves look better bipedal ... it gives them a look of intelligence ... cunning ... I think all would agree that a smart enemy is much scarier than a stupid one ... and werewolves on all fours look like big, dumb ol' Cujos. When the hell are they gonna make "Werewolf by night" into a kick-ass, live-action movie? I long to see Jack Russell's tragic story on the big screen...

This is a fun spoiler question, is the were-dog still in the movie?

Wes is a punk now, the last good film he made was New Nightmare and that's a stretch. Kevin is a shill for Kaplan's SAT prep program. All his movies full of high school vocabulary words and stupid teens who know everything. Remember when people in horror movies weren't so self aware?

Kevin Williamson's a hack. I went to college with him. He was a hack then, he's a hack now. He doesn't have a niche. He's a damned lucky bastard. He was at the right place at the right time. That's all. He was a theatre major. Scream was his first attempt at writing a full script. Craven made the thing more than it was/is. That and the casting. Williamson's been living off his connections which led to Dawson's Creek ever since. I mean come on...anyone ever read Scream or I Know What You Did Last Summer? Not exactly The Exorcist or Rosemary's Baby.

Except for most of them, because they suck inordinate amounts of ass!! My favorite werewolf movie, (and from the looks of things will remain so until I die) is "The Howling" You can keep your campy "I don't know whether to laugh or scream" crapfest to yourself. Take your "running dog" werewolves and stuff them in your ass. Oh, and men with furry sideburns are about as scary as the spooks on scooby doo. Hey Hollywood, here's a few suggestions as to what not to insert into your werewolf movie.1 too many people, unless these people are werewolves, get them out of there. There is strength in numbers and the last thing you want your protagonist to be in a horror movie is overpowering.2 High tech weaponry, hell, high tech anything, immediately drains the flick of horror, (see Jason in space for details)There's nothing less scary than werewolves who text message.3 Werewolves and cities, I say stay away from this not so much that it couldn't work but because I have a script in the works and I don't want you fuckers stepping on my toes! 4 Marsupials, come on, what the fuck were you thinking?! The last "decent" werewolf flick I've witnessed was "Dog Soldiers" The worst is what I fear this project will resemble, that cinematic giant known as "Dark Wolf" Although I'm sure I've upset a few FvsJ fans since they seem to be of the same quality filmaking, oh well.

too much "story," if you can consider the tribulations of these paper cutouts "story" in any meaningful sense, and not enough werewolves fucking people up. Must we be subject to that tiresome first reel? This things sounds like it would be immediately more disturbing and watchable if the werewolves just start killing people from minute one and never let up. No explanations; no "backstory," no "B story" and no "arcs." Just Fade In and complete fucking madness. Two or three scenes to catch our breath, and then sheer horror. I don't want to know why stuff happens; just what happens next.

As long as she wears miniskirts or shorts throughout the whole movie... she just needs to show off her legs, I don't need more... :-)

As a horror geek I think it looks awesome!
