Overview

Cursed claws its way to DVD with this unrated version from Dimension Home Video. Also available in the trimmed PG-13 version, the movie is presented in an anamorphic 2.40:1 widescreen picture and Dolby Digital 5.1 sound that both feature clear transfers and vivid quality. Extras include a promotional making-of, two featurettes on the effects, and then another clip about the editing of the film highlighting the fact that the flick was chopped up before release to garner a PG-13 rating. The "Becoming a Werewolf" featurette is slightly worthy of note since it features actor Jesse Eisenberg and effects man Greg Nicotero clowning around as they go through the process of creating the creature. As with the film, your appreciation for the throw-away clip probably hinges on your tolerance for Eisenberg, who can come off quite annoying to some, though the inclusion of at least something different on a DVD is always welcome. Also available strictly on this unrated DVD are selected scene audio commentary tracks on the special effects sequences, featuring Nicotero again along with the man underneath the werewolf suit, Derek Mears. It's sad to see that the true story behind the troubled production wasn't delved into that much, but then again, it's not that surprising. Pick this version up before the other rated one, though even that is an interesting look into the lengths that editors will go to to tame a movie that was filmed to be especially bloody. The running time runs two minutes longer on this cut, though most is simply gore moments and not fully excised scenes.

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.

I'm a little disappointed in the unrated version of "Cursed", simply because I was expecting exposed flesh, creative gore and killing methods. But instead, this film offers no more than the typical horror flick, a chessy since of humor, and some hollywood cheese efx on the werewolf (except for when they trun into werewolfs right before your eyes. However, in a way I liked this simply because it didn't try to take itself too seriously. Any in some way it pays omage to those drive-in "B" horror movies of ole. Christina Ricci was pretty sexy in "Cursed", even though she didn't have to shead any skin to be, and Mya the multi-talented singer/turned actress was also a treat. "Cursed" wasn't a bad movie, but it could have lived up to it's potential as a bonechiller like the film "Wolfin". Not a bad addition to the "B"/horror movie genre. I'm going to be generous with the rating.

Perhaps it’s the curse of the werewolf. Maybe that’s why so many actors and actresses that are normally great deliver such poor performances in this over acted, under directed, piece of formula writing. Though I am a fan of ‘bad’ b horror movies, even my love of them couldn’t help me tolerate this film. I thought about how to write this review without giving any spoilers, well, watch five minutes of the film, then think about the next formula, pat, unexciting thing that could happen, and boom, you’re there, it just happened. There are no twists and turns in the plot, it’s calm as a still pond and smooth as glass, so it had the general effect of luring you to sleep. Even the special effects are nothing new or exciting. Matter as fact, they’re pretty amature, looking like they were created in Maya by a couple of college students that are getting poor grades in art class. If you’re thinking about watching this, or worse yet, buying it. Don’t. Howling is a werewolf movie classic and well worth your time. But if you invest yourself in Cursed, you’ll just come out feeling cheated. Not recommended. (this review pertains to the Un-rated DVD version)

Cursed a light, gory (if you bought the unrated version) andfun horror flick. Wes Craven certainly hasn't lost his touch with making a rollercoaster thrill ride. Cursed has a great cast including Christina Ricci, Joshua Jackson, Jesse Eisenberg, Judy Greer, Scott Baio, Milo Ventimiglia, with Shannon Elizabeth, and Mya. The movie centers on two orpahned siblings Ellie and Jimmy (Ricci & Eisenberg) who witness a werewolf kill a woman (Shannon Elizabeth). They are both bitten and cursed by the mark of the beast. Now it's up to Ellie and Jimmy to defeat thr beast before becoming werewolves themselves. ****

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.
