Introduction

Cursed (plan) p.1 Planning Material Topic: A movie that I thought was overrated. The movie: Cursed a Wes Craven film Objective: My objective is to express my opinion about a movie that I feel was overrated. I own this movie so I watched it again to see if anything jumped out at me the third time that I didn't see the first two times. I still felt the same after seeing it for the third time. I went online to get information on release dates, reviews and box office gross.

The cast was great I was just really turned off by the whole feel of the movie it was so typical and you knew the culprit before the movie even really got started. In a review by Wireless Magazine they called it "A breathtaking supernatural thriller!"(Video, 2005).In a review by Brian Juergens he states "What we get is just about every clich� imaginable..."

Wireless Magazine called it "A breathtaking supernatural thriller!" (Video, 2005). Cursed (Final) p.3 Brian Juergens stated "What we get is just about every clich� imaginable..." (Bloody-Disgusting, 2005). The story line lacked a climax; I mean they practically point out the villain from the start. More or less the way I feel about Cursed is that it had a good supporting cast and a workable storyline that was not used to its full potential. It failed by not delivering what advertisement promised. It had a lack of special effects and cheesy punch lines. It had the feel of a modern day B-Movie. Give me the Howling any day.
