Just doesn't mesh by TnJWilson August 1, 2005 - 9:52 AM PDT

I think Wes Craven was trying to combine the campiness of his older classic horrors with modern effects, but it just didn't come together. In the end, this movie is kind of dull, despite being about werewolves. And for anyone (like my wife) who has ever watched Dawson's Creek might find it hard to believe Josh Jackson is as a cold and calculating werewolf. Even the beauty and talent of Christina Ricci couldn't save this. Save your time and put Ginger Snaps on your queue instead if you want a good werewolf movie.

The DVD version of CURSED ups the ante to a post-PG-13 rating via severed torsos and the like. Doesn't help. The movie is still no great shakes for the werewolf genre, further evidence that the Craven/Williamson combo has lost its zing. There does not seem to have been any point to making this movie, but evidently, the moviemakers didn't realize this until well after the fact.

Not a total waste of time (there are a few fun moments and some now-and-then suspense), but the special effect are low-grade, and a good cast is pretty much wasted, with the exception of Judy Greer, who does a great job as bony Joanie, the publicist. Matter of fact, Greer is always good--one of those undersung actresses that moviegoers can consistently count on--without quite being able to remember the name. Let's hope Greer gets her due: maybe the upcoming "The Great New Wonderful" will help her over this hurdle.
