Cursed

Directed by the master of horror Wes Craven and written by Kevin Williamson. Rated PG-13 for horror violence/terror, some sexual references, nudity, language and a brief drug reference.

 

And now we come to a film that I anxiously waited for. From the writing/directing team that brought us Scream. My favorite gay writer Kevin Williamson and favorite horror master Wes Craven.

 

This film went through one of the toughest productions in the history of Dimension films. Apparently Wes Craven wasn’t making the werewolf movie that the studio wanted. The studio liked the way “writing/directing team that brought you Scream” sounded but they didn’t like what they actually brought them. So with much ado and rewrites this film finally gets made and it is a miracle that it’s as good as it is. If it wasn’t for the ridiculously talented writing/directing team that brought you Scream this film would have sunk or stunk.

 

It’s a fun monster flick that follows the usual routine when average and less than average people get supernatural powers. Where this movie really steps right is in the relationship between Ricci (who is so hot right now) and Josh Jackson (who never stopped being hot since Mighty Ducks). What also sets this film apart from lesser monster films is in the detail that my favorite gay writer pays attention to. The rules and symptoms of these creatures explains every action in almost every scene, giving the film a level of honesty despite the absurdity of the situations.

 

A special notice to the kid who plays the brother in this film with such confidence and hesitance and fun that he makes the movie while Ricci isn’t on the screen, that is.

 

Great effort, my only complaint is the traditional ending. While good and satisfying this film had the opportunity to do something pretty different, but given the complicating factors at play I don’t blame the filmmakers eating what they had and just getting it done.
