Universal City, CA–(HISPANIC PR WIRE)–November 17, 2005–Eight high-school students spin a terrifying tale of murder and mayhem that comes back to haunt them in the year’s most shocking horror mystery, Cry_Wolf. Directed by Jeff Wadlow (winner of the Chrysler Million Dollar Film Festival) and written by Wadlow and Beau Bauman, the cunningly crafted tale of an imaginary – or not? – serial killer arrives in stores in an Unrated version with never-before-scene footage and Rated version on December 20, 2005 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. Starring Julian Morris (Spin, Don’t Go Breaking My Heart), Lindy Booth (Dawn of the Dead, Wrong Turn) and Jared Padalecki (“Supernatural,” Flight of the Phoenix), Cry_Wolf is created from a chillingly original script, full of surprises that will keep viewers on the edge of their seats until the final horrifying twist.

In Cry_Wolf, a teen Internet prank turns deadly when troubled Owen Matthews (Morris) transfers to a posh private school where he befriends seven equally rebellious high-school seniors. Following the brutal murder of a young woman, they begin an online game of lies and rumors that will ultimately bring them face-to-face with the blood-curdling terror they thought that they had merely invented. The DVD is priced at $29.98 SRP. Pre-order close is November 15, 2005.
