MILL CREEK DVD RELEASE: Through the Decades: 2000s Collection: Cry Wolf (2005)

There weren’t all that many slashers of note in 2005 — The Devil’s RejectsHouse of Wax and Urban Legends: Bloody Mary are about all I can think of — but this movie sure made an effort.

Directed and co-written (with producer Beau Bauman) by Jeff Wadlow (Blumhouse’s Truth or Dare and Fantasy Island), Cry Wolf is all about Graham (Ethan Cohn), Mercedes (Sandra McCoy), Lewis (Paul James), Randall (Jesse Janzen), Regina (Kristy Wu), Tom (Jared Padalecki), Dodger (Lindy Booth) and Owen (Julian Morris) who are playing a game called Cry Wolf.

In this game, one of the players is the wolf and everyone else must guess who it is. It’s also known as Mafia and Werewolf. The players decide to include the entire school in the game and make up a story that a serial killer is attacking campuses, dressed in green camo, an orange ski mask, combat boots and black gloves.

As you can imagine, the killer becomes real and the game is that anyone could be the killer, including journalism professor Mr. Walker, who is having an affair with at least one of the potential wolves.

How 2000s is this movie? Well, American Online made an AIM virtual game to promote it.

And oh yeah — Jon Bon Jovi plays Mr. Walker.
