9 hours ago

The old saying ‘be careful what you wish for’ takes centre stage in the latest upcoming teen-horror, Wish UponJoey King leads the film, playing a bullied teenager who finds a way to get back at her peers with the aid of a box that grants wishes, but using her wishes for personal gain causes very bad things to happen. It soon becomes apparent that there is an evil entity living in the box and it has a thirst for murder.

Ahead of it’s July U.S release, a new trailer has landed online. The new clip shows the aftereffect of one of those wishes and it’s pretty gruesome:

Wish Upon releases in the U.S in July; a UK date has still to be set. »
