When the students at a prestigious prep school spread a hoax email about a serial killer, they start a game of terror and deception that has three rules: avoid suspicion, lie to your friends, and eliminate your enemies. But what starts as a joke soon turns deadly and now they find themselves victims of their own game!

Unoriginal teen horror has elitism, language, violence.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Cry Wolf is a horror movie with moderate violence, language, and sex references. The arrival of British student Owen (Julian Morris) to an elite U.S. boarding school coincides with Dodger (Lindy Booth) and the other students concocting a story about a campus serial killer. The movie's characters are too cynical and deceptive for the movie to carry any positive messages, although there are some moments of honesty and vulnerability between Owen and Dodger. Although central to the plot, violence is infrequent and not super graphic. There are deaths by stabbing and shooting with some blood, but it is not prolonged or gory. Sex isn't graphic, either, although it is referenced and joked about. Kissing is shown, including between a teacher and student. Language includes female characters being referred to as "bitch," and a lesbian couple being called "dykes." There is some underage drinking of beer at parties, but not to excess, while drug possession is also referenced but not shown. Set in an exclusive school, the characters are mostly affluent and enjoy the benefits of a privileged education.
