Plot: After one too many incidents of bad behavior at his last school, Owen Matthews (Julian Morris) arrives at Westlake Prep – where a young woman has recently been found murdered in the dark woods near the boarding school’s campus. Owen quickly falls in with the school’s unofficial “liars’ club,” including the beautiful and savvy Dodger (Lindy Booth) and quick-talking, short-tempered Tom (Jared Padalecki). At Owen’s suggestion, his new friends decide to expand their game’s reach beyond campus, by spreading an online rumor that a serial killer called “The Wolf” committed the recent murder and is planning to strike again.

The mischievous group’s descriptions of “The Wolf’s” intended victims are based on the people they know best – each other. Only when the school’s journalism teacher, Rich Walker (Jon Bon Jovi), warns the group about the kinds of predators that lurk on the internet does Owen begin to regret sending their falsified story into cyberspace. When the described “victims” suddenly start to disappear, Owen, Dodger, and Tom are no longer able to determine where the lies end and the truth begins. As someone – or something – starts hunting the players themselves, the game turns terrifyingly

external linkI cannot recommend this movie. Morally, it was deplorable, and the elegant twisted plot was not worth all the filthy language and graphic violence. I could not like any of the characters, they seemed to have no human feelings or compassion. 0/5, 3.5

external linkHorror fanatics who get their kicks from helpless victims running from imminent death may want to pass on this one. Those who don't mind "CryWolf's'' blase attitude toward its genre may enjoy its campy murder mystery plotline. 2/4
--Chelsea Bain

external linkA limp "Boy Who Cried Wolf" update for the Scream crowd, Cry_Wolf bamboozles viewers in ways that outdo even the characters' interminable hoaxes. 1.5/4
--Fernando F. Croce

external linkAs much as I hated the screenplay and the ridiculously unbelievable ploy, I really enjoyed the filmmaker and editor’s style. Jeff Wadlow does have a future in directing, and ‘Cry Wolf’ is a calling card he can still be proud of. 2.5/5

external linkYou looking for a bloodsoaked, giggling titties heavy slasher? This is NOT it, no matter what the film’s trailers tell you. But you in the mood for a lying son of a whore that takes you for a guessing game ride while displaying strong performers, an evenpace, solid directing choices, The Bonj (always a plus) and at least one hard hitting twister? Than this house trained wolf is for you! 3/4
--'The Arrow' (Arrow)
