Wish Upon



17-year-old CLARE SHANNON (Joey King) is barely surviving the hell that is high school. So when her dad (Ryan Phillippe) gifts her an old music box with an inscription that promises to grant the owner's wishes, she thinks there is nothing to lose. Before long, she finally has it all: money, popularity and her dream boy. Everything seems perfect - until the people closest to her begin dying in gruesome and twisted ways. Now, with blood on her hands, Clare has to get rid of the box, before it costs her and everyone she loves the ultimate price.

Ashley Kethley's Review.

Was this movie so bad it was good? Or was it just bad?

Joey King plays Claire, a girl who witnessed the exact moment her mother committed suicide. When she becomes a teenager she is raised by her father who finds a music box. He gives Claire the box which is ancient looking but the characters are in Chinese. Luckily for Claire she takes mandarin in school and is able to translate "wishes" and she starts to wish for things a typical teenager would ask for. Popularity, love, pain on her enemies, yada yada yada. Anytime she makes a wish there is a "blood price" and someone she loves dies in a really terrible way. Think final destination.

This movie is so ridiculous you just can't help but laugh and murmur under your breath how you definitely should not put your hand down the garbage disposal and "wow you're making ANOTHER wish?!".

It was fun to joke and laugh so if you like super cheesy "horror" teen movies you will probably like this.

The best thing about this was the racial diversity, I know the movie won't break box office records but I really wish more films had this kind of representation.

Rating: 1.5 out of 5
