Boston Globe

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

Film Threat

By Rick Kisonak
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.

Chicago Tribune

By Michael Wilmington
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.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

By Liam Lacey
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.

ReelViews

By James Berardinelli
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.

New York Daily News

By Robert Dominguez
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.

San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
A third-rate effort, with a weak script, cheap-looking effects and no genuine frights.

Entertainment Weekly

By Owen Gleiberman
Screenwriter Kevin Williamson (the Scream trilogy), having bottomed out in the horror genre, now dips below bottom (there isn't a line that has his knowing sweet-and-sour zing).

New York Post

By V.A. Musetto
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.

The Hollywood Reporter

By Frank Scheck
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.
