Wish Upon (Movie Review)

PLOT : A bullied teenager girl discovers that a magic box can make her wishes come true, but at a serious cost. REVIEW : Sometimes a horror film - no matter how generic it sounds - can try and get everything right. They can bring in a few familiar genre faces and give the lead to a really solid actress. Better still is when they offer up some interesting and gruesome kills to...

We visit the set of Wish Upon and talk to Joey King, Shannon Purser and more

Be careful what you wish for is a theme not uncommon for the horror genre, and in WISH UPON it is extremely apropos. As you may have seen from the film's effective trailers (posted below), the main character of Clare (Joey King) receives a fascinating "wishing box" that makes her every superficial desire a reality. But with severe consequences: for each wish granted, someone Clare...

The young actress stars as not-particularly-popular high schooler Clare Shannon, who finds herself in possession of a magical box that grants its owner any wish they...

Exclusive: Shannon Purser confirms Barb will not be in Stranger Things 2

The phenomenon that was Barb from Stranger Things is one you likely know about. A fairly minor player in the first few episodes of the Netflix series, the character became an instant sensation thanks to her look, her attitude and her abrupt disappearance from the series. Barb's hardcore fans latched onto the mystery of her fate, not willing to accept the idea that the character...

Wish Upon snags a PG-13 rating

A-Ha! I knew it. But I guess we all did... Anyhow, I think it's a bit funny that just the other day, in the post featuring the film's third trailer, I said I may get excited about WISH UPON if it snags an R-rating from the MPAA. Well, dash those thoughts as it has been revealed this morning that the Joey King-starring teen horror flick will, in fact, be rated PG-13....

Joey King horror flick Wish Upon gets a new trailer

I don't know what to make of the upcoming teen horror flick WISH UPON . I mean it co-stars Sherilyn Fenn from TWIN PEAKS so that's pretty cool, but from all the promo materials I have seen thus far, the film looks like a feature-length episode of R.L. Stine's THE HAUNTING HOUR.  Not that that's necessarily a bad thing... But I just don't think I'm...

New trailer for Annabelle director's follow-up WISH UPON starring Joey King

Be careful what you WISH UPON… Ah, the old "some poor shlub gets a set of wishes and everything is all hunky-dory until the wishes begin to have unforseen consquences" subgenre. Gotta love it. From WISHMASTER to the classic tale of THE MONKEY'S PAW , the tale as old as time hasn't lost its apeal. Evidently. If horror has taught us anything...
