A rare gem of a film this is NOT...
29 July 2017 | by jswindter01See all my reviews

In writing a review earlier today for the movie, "Nocturne-2016" I commented on the let down that comes after watching a horror film that you've been anxiously awaiting, only to find that it was dull, boring, and/or sometimes even damn near unwatchable .. So, while "Nocturne" was not at all a let down, "Wish Upon" was every bit the opposite in being a real chore to even force myself to watch it in its entirety.

Here's one of the Hollywood horror films that has the budget, the actors, etc, but it falls flatter than a pancake, and makes you just all the more leary about the "Hollywood" horror/thriller genre of films these days. I've asked repeatedly who in the hell is greenlighting these big-budgeted- failure-films(aka BBFF)? And why aren't they saving some of their millions of dollars by picking up some these great, frightening indie horror films that are shot and produced on minuscule budgets.. Yet they rise so far ahead and above these Hollywood horror films. It just continues to not make sense to me and it just gets more and more frustrating for all the horror/thriller genre junkies who appreciate great horror films, and who are always on the look out for those rare hidden gems(and NOPE, "Wish Upon" is NOT one of those rare gems!)..
