The Wisher has just opened in cinema's nationwide and
audiences are having some serious reactions to the film. With
a love of horror films and scaring herself to death, 17 year
old Mary decides to see what all the fuss is about. But within
minutes of her watching The Wisher, she becomes uncharacteristically
scared and has to leave the cinema. After this event, strange
things start happening to Mary and those she cares about and
it is not long before she starts to realise that the monster
movie seems to be somehow responsible...
have been a really bad movie, instead it is just bad. Every
cliché in the book is dragged out and paraded in front
of the audience.
was a shame that the producers didn't keep The Wisher monster
hidden for the majority of the movie. The suggestion of a
monster would have been a lot more scary than the Goth in
a postal sack that we keep glimpsing.
acting is pretty good and you do get a quick naked scene with
the token sexy girl, but other than that there isn't much
to recommend this movie. I had worked out the ending way before
the conclusion (I don't think I'm spoiling anything here,
but don't you get suspicious when a character turns up in
a few scenes, has a few lines and then doesn't seem to have
anything else to do?)
are also some extras on this disc, but they really shouldn't
have bothered. A very lame two minute interview with the main
cast and a 2 minute behind the scenes look at three different
(and rather dull) shots from the movie is just not exciting
in anyone's book. Although, the alternate ending was interesting.
not really bad. It's just that in a market flooded with this
genre it doesn't offer much that hasn't already been seen.
