About the Movie
In the latest thriller from the director of ANNABELLE, 17-year-old CLARE SHANNON (Joey King) is barely surviving the hell that is high school, along with her friends MEREDITH (Sydney Park) and JUNE (Shannon Purser). 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. Clare makes her first wish and, to her surprise, it comes true. 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. Be careful what you wish for. Broad Green Pictures’ WISH UPON is directed by John R. Leonetti (ANNABELLE) and produced by Sherryl Clark (CLOVERFIELD).

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: This is forgettable stuff.
Rotten: A spooky teen story that's not particularly heavy on the scares and over-delivers on the unintentional giggles,
Rotten: Never goes far enough to truly scare anyone. Even easy-to-please teens might wish for their time back.
Rotten: A bland B-movie that begs the question: How did this get made when so many good films never escape development purgatory?
Not everything has to be perfect you know!
While I did loved the story and the idea for the movie. I thought it was very clever about a music box that makes 7 wishes and after you make your wish it plays music and stops automatically after someone you love who is really close to you dies and then after you make your 7 wishes the box then kills yourself. I thought it was very clever!
However.... I have to admit the deaths in this movie were a bit slapstick. (A little bit like Tom & Jerry) I think they could have done a little better than that.
I will admit this though I think having a sequel or prequel to this movie would be worth it and the makers of this movie can fix their mistakes from the original and make it even better.
I give this movie 5 stars ya

As a long time fan of indie horror, this is not exactly my go-to movie HOWEVER it is well-done and, for a PG-13, keeps its watchers interested through sheer adolescent entertainment. Worth a rent. Gonna go make a couple wishes now.
