PG-13 horror always makes me cringe. The tamed gore, the lame plot, the tired teen smarts taking the good name of horror overdone, it’s a crime that these PG-13 films gets all the attention when R-rated horror gets butchered for a faint-hearted public. So when I finally decided to watch CRY_WOLF (just for the review), I was surprised how well done it was despite the lack of proper scares and extreme violence, playing out as a thriller involving a lie gone wrong.

The mail spreads easily via instant messaging, with nearly every student and staff believing it, but it seems like someone wearing the same orange ski mask and camouflage suit described in their mail started stalking Owen, taking every chance to kill him. Is someone trying to kill Owen for vengeance or is Owen being eaten alive by his own guilt?
|ugh, why do people never listens.|
Admittedly, the experimental approach worked for me as it concentrated on the psychological aspects of stalking and paranoia our lead is put into, keeping everything far from predictable by giving their own distinctive style of suspense and builds up to a shocking finale. It was a good movie but it’s nowhere as acceptable as any “real” slashers out there as its whodunit approx could used a little more work.
To keep it short, its not for everyone, the slasher perspective lacks power but its interesting enough to keep you watching.
