Cry Wolf [Movie Review]

Cry Wolf [Movie Review] | I accidentally came across Cry Wolf while looking for other movies to watch last week.

A movie in 2005, so no expectation at all - just feeling kinda sentimental so I decided to give it a go.

Recently transferred to a new prep school, Owen immediately befriends Dodger and her gang. To get to know Owen more, the gang invited Owen to join them for a game of Cry Wolf in the chapel late one night. And turns out, Owen was quite good at the game too.

When a news break about a murdered girl at a nearby wood at the school, the gang decided to have a little fun with the scandal by making up a rumour about the death. The rumour being there is a serial killer who runs around killing students, from one campus to another. They describe the killer and send the email anonymously to the whole student body of the school. 

True enough, the whole school believes the rumour and it goes around like a forest fire. That night, Owen receives an instant message on his computer from a person with Wolf as the username. Wolf is what the kids named the guy in question in their Cry Wolf game. Accusing the gang to be messing with him, he goes around asking the gang but seems that everybody has plausible alibi.

When he returns to his dorm room, his room was trashed and he finds a bloodied piercing stud on his computer.

He runs around looking for the 'Wolf' and when he couldn't find Randall, one member of the gang, he believes that Randall has been pulling his leg all this while from wherever he is hiding. 

He feels disappointed when he sees Dodger kissing Mr Walker, their professor, just when he was about to confess his feelings to Dodger, and right after Dodger says that she is not into displaying affection towards others. 

Feeling angry at Dodger and Mr Walker, the situation worsens the day after when a hunting knife fells from his backpack during Mr Walker's class. On their way to see the headmistress to report about the incident, Owen threatens Mr Walker that he will also inform the headmistress about Mr Walker's relationship with Dodger. They both agreed to keep the incident to themselves. 

On the night of the Halloween, the 'Wolf' attacks Owen but it turns out to be Mercedes, one of the gang member, who was pranking Owen. 

When one by one of his friends die, Owen has to start believing that the Wolf is real.

Who is the Wolf?

MY REVIEW

Plot: 4.7/ 5.0 I guessed wrong! I thought I know the plot but I was wrong, on all accounts. If only the scripts were given to better actors, the movie would be better, I would say. 

Cast: 4.2/ 5.0 The performance was ok but could be delivered better by better choice of cast.

Will I watch it again: Not in a very near future.

The pictures are taken from multiple sources on the Internet. Thank you.
