I like this concept.
Release: June 30, 2017
The trailer I just watched somewhat contradicted that.
This one doesn't really knock my socks off. It looks kind of stupid.
Looks pretty good and interesting enough judging from the trailer. Never even heard about it till today but I'll be checking it out.
Enjoyed the latest trailer. Looking forward to this one.
Didn't realize this was PG-13.
Aw seriously? Damn, I didn't realise that either. The trailers made it look like it was going to get nasty.
Young high school protagonist and majority of characters centred around junior high school age? Check. Trailer made up entirely of cheap jump scare set-ups? Check. Terrible/predictable premise? Check. Every trailer/promotional bit I've seen for this has screamed PG-13/"young adult horror" so no surprise there for me.
I won't be seeing this one as I think it looks terribly bland. If reviews are even somewhat favourable... maybe Netflix someday.
Eh, I was always going to check it out for free so no big deal there really. I wouldn't say it looks bland though. It seems entertaining and engaging enough for a 90 minute runtime (assuming it's no longer than that). I mean I could be wrong but people rotting alive and a demonic wish box don't scream bland in my eyes. Stupid and cliché maybe, but not bland.
Speaking of stupid, the bit where the woman's hair gets caught in the garbage disposal made me laugh and shake my head.
I thought it looked a bit Final Destination-esque (blood splashing on the lead's face, the garbage disposal, etc), so was hoping for an R-rating. The slasher wave of the early 80s was targeted at a teenage audience, and most of them sported an R-rating.
I think I'll give it a try regardless. The teen slasher genre is due for a theatrical comeback, and it's nice to see a theatrical option that isn't a dull and dreary ghost movie. Not expecting much, but every once in a while modern PG-13 horror has surprised me (The New Daughter, The Final Girls, Split, etc). At the very least, I'll settle for dumb fun.
Saw it tonight and it's exactly what it looks like: Degrassi with the occasional Final Destination-esque death scene. Fortunately, that worked for me. There's even a fashion montage and Ryan Philippe plays the saxophone. The kills do lack bite due to the PG-13 rating, but I still got a kick out of it.
If the trailer appeals to you, or you can appreciate a dumb teen-terror flick, you get what you pay for. Some of the hardcore horror fans are going to hate it for catering to a teenage audience, but I found it pretty charming (although corny as hell).
Plus, there was a trailer for Happy Death Day, which I cannot wait to see! Bring on the slasher movies!
Happy death day looks amazing!
D+ over at the AV Club!
Still seems like it could be enjoyable dumb fun. Shame about the rating. I'm waiting for it to become available to download.
This looks like it could have the so bad its good going for it. It does look really corny
The blu-ray is only $13.59 at Target with their 20% off movies Cartwheel coupon this week. I was going to wait until it was under $10, but that price works for me. I picked it up today.
For those who have been wishing upon Amazon Prime to add Wish Upon to their free streaming titles... well, your wish has been granted. Warn your loved ones to stay away from garbage disposals and saxophones.
For some reason the bluray wouldn't load in my Sony player maybe it is too old but luckily the DVD worked but sadly wasn't unrated though I thought the film was okay but all the deaths were lame in the Pg 13 cut. I enjoyed Friend Request another horror film a lot better.
