Overview

A big lie told in fun has deadly consequences in this horror story. A group of students at an exclusive private school decide to have some fun by creating an urban legend and seeing how far it will spread. When a woman is murdered not far from the school's campus, the students create an elaborate mythology about a serial killer known as "the Wolf," whose motives and methods would make him a likely culprit for the recent crime. However, when other people begin dying at the hands of "the Wolf," the students are forced to admit to their lie in hopes of stopping the killings. But will anyone believe them? And how does the real-life killer know so much about the backstory of "the Wolf"? Cry_Wolf stars Julian Morris, Lindy Booth, Jon Bon Jovi, and Gary Cole.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jeremy Wheeler
Amazingly, Cry Wolf is not half the junkshop slasher one might expect going in -- then again, that doesn't quite warrant a recommendation, per se. While acting as if it's running off of your usual I Know What You Did Last Summer mold, Cry Wolf is far from a high-body-count popcorn flick. There's an engaging little story underneath the familiar character stereotypes and cheesy Instant Messenger shtick that is easy to overlook if you aren't forced to watch it. The simple fact alone that the film holds your attention for over two thirds of its brisk 89-minute running time without any kills certainly says something. While low on frights, there's at least one inspired moment involving motion-censored lighting that is a neat spin on the blowing-out-the-candle chase sequence and worth a look for those looking for something fresh and different. And while the end does bite off a bit more Usual Suspects than it can chew, you can't help but have some kind of respect for what the filmmakers were trying to do. Lead actors Lindy Booth and Julian Morris make a fine screen team and help keep the dramatics afloat amidst the 24-style editing that adds a bit of spice to the otherwise marginal shocker.
