This is one of the better werewolf movies I've seen, not quite as good as Eric Red's BAD MOON but better than AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN PARIS. Christina Ricci portrays a Hollywood publicist who is trying to juggle a new relationship and also care for her teenaged brother. Their parents were killed in a car accident so she's head of the household. One night, during a full moon, they are in an accident on Mulholland Drive when they run into some kind of animal. They hit another car, which flips over and goes down the embankment. Just as they are about to pull the woman from the car, the werewolf grabs her through the window. They try to hang on to her and are dragged a ways into the woods, until they are forced to let go. But both have scratches from the creature, which means they are going to turn into werewolves. We see how the nerdy brother gains confidence through the new strength he's obtained and Ricci becomes less uptight at work.There are some twists at the end as to who is the 'good' werewolf and who is the monster killing people in the Los Angeles area, and you can pretty much figure who they are by the middle of the movie. The special effects, both animatronic and computerized are well done. This is one ferocious werewolf, sort of a cross between that seen in AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON and the Wyle E. Coyote ones from THE HOWLING. CURSED also has a great beginning title sequence that puts you in the right mood for the flick.Again, not the best horror movie but one of the better from the werewolf genre.
