    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    A third-rate effort, with a weak script, cheap-looking effects and no genuine frights. show more

    It's hard to tell who is more Cursed - the pretty young people who turn into werewolves on screen or the people who buy tickets for this slow, witless, predictable horror flick. show more

    Frank Scheck The Hollywood Reporter

    Cursed, a modern-day werewolf tale that fails to provide either Craven's trademark chills or Williamson's trademark satirical wit, is a distinctly subpar film that, but for the current boxoffice streak enjoyed by such formulaic genre entries, deserved to go direct to video. show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

    Marks a return to a not-so-distant time when horror movies weren't soul-rotting atrocities but just enjoyably bad. show more

    More an uninspired letdown than a flabbergasting turkey... One reason for this lack of bite lies in the werewolves themselves. They're a bit too teddy-bearish, even oddly cuddly, and the fright scenes work better when you don't see much of them. show more

    Liam Lacey The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    The problem lies with Williamson's script, which feels as if it has been torn from different places and glued back together like a ransom note. show more

    If there's the kernel of a good story buried somewhere deep in Cursed, it never pops. As werewolf movies go, this one is on par with "An American Werewolf in Paris," but at least that dud had plenty of gore and Julie Delpy's bare breasts to recommend it. show more

    V.A. Musetto New York Post

    Unlike Cursed, which resorts to blatant but unconvincing gore and violence, "The Wolf Man" (1941) gets its point across through suggestion, makeup and spooky sets. show more

    Rick Kisonak Film Threat

    Until this past Friday, the worst werewolf film ever made was, hairy hands down, Mike Nichols' "Wolf." Cursed now assumes that dubious distinction and someone is going to have to try very hard to wrestle it away. show more

    There is some fun to be had if you're in an undemanding frame of mind. show more
