Horrible. Truly horrible.
I wish Barnes and Noble would let me give this a rating of zero stars. This movie was so bad, there were points that I really did feel physically ill. Craven once again proves his worthlessness as a director with another teenage horror piece of rat feces. The worst parts of the film include - 1. She backs away from the door, terrified, and then, when you're expecting something really cool to happen... THE CUCKOO CLOCK GOES OFF!! AAAAAAAHHHH!!!! That scene was so cheap it made the total budget for Joe Schmo's home movies look like the entire wealth of the U.S. Treasury. Ugh. 2. She stands screaming her stupid little heart out in the elevator as the werewolf attempts to pull it back down to the first floor. Her elevator is currently stuck in between the first and second floors, and all doors are open. The werewolf then uses the stairs to get up to the second floor. So what does she do? She sticks her head out of the door to the second floor and looks for the monster. Needless to say, she dies. And I was glad. Anyone that stupid DESERVES to die. I laughed till I cried. 3. At the end, the werewolf escapes, so our heroin has to do something to bring her back (so all the cops can shoot her to bits - since all the cops have guns that standardly come with silver bullets!). She starts insulting the woman, like saying that she looks fat in all of her favorite dresses, you know - universally ultimate insults. Finally, the wolf breaks in through a huge window, and flips off the good guys; just to get shot to death. Yes, with the policemans' standard silver bullets. Man, who doesn't have silver bullets these days? I know I do! SIGH That was another hilariously bad scene. So how about the good scenes in the movie? I can think of three great portions of watching it. 1. The previews, which included a completely genius trailer for "SIN CITY", were quite enjoyable, and were the best part of the movie. 2. Shortly after the film begins, there is a scene with Bowling for Soup performing a cover of the great song - I don't know what it's called, but it's something about Little Red Riding Hood. That was enjoyable. 3. The end credits. Just knowing that I could leave the theater was heaven. Never watch this movie. There are plenty of other, more entertaining things to do with your time - Like watching paint drying, witnessing grass grow, or just sleeping.Was this review helpful?

This movie doesn't deserve a star
Wes Craven does it again...gives us an utterly forgettable movie. I couldn't even watch the whole thing without yanking it out of my DVD player in disgust.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
