Critic Reviews for Cry Wolf

All Critics (3)

The plot of this noir melodrama, about family intrigues and insanity set within an ominous house a la Rebecca, is senseless, but potboiler is elevated by actors Stanwyck and Flynn and Franz Waxman's delicious score.

June 21, 2007 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Despite percussive bangs, shaky camera, heavy breathing and shadowy lighting, there are not many scares and some plot points are plain silly.

March 16, 2006

Creaky old dark house thriller about a woman in peril.

Audience Reviews for Cry Wolf


Barbara and Errol don't share a great deal of chemistry but they do their work professionally and this is an reasonably entertaining thriller.
