Everybody knows the story of The Boy Who Cried Wolf. It's been reproduced in countless different manners, including a Simpsons episode that sees Bart having an impossibly bad day that eventually leads to his mauling in the elementary school hall by one of our lupine friends.

For those unfamiliar with the tale, the yarn centers around a boy who finds amusement in going through his admittedly rural village and warning people that a wolf has come to attack both humans and their flocks. He continues blaring the alarm despite the fact that no such creature exists, aggravating his fellow townspeople to the point that they simply decide to ignore him. You know where this is heading, of course. A real wolf shows up and even though the lad screams for help, no one believes him. He's dinner.

Cry Wolf takes the premise of that fable and takes it in the only logical direction – a feature film for the horror genre. In the film, a group of high school kids entertain themselves by creating a ruse involving a creepy serial killer who is known as "The Wolf." Naturally, that terror turns real and nobody believes the teens who had previously revealed themselves to be liars. (Kim Hollis/BOP)
