The movie was filmed in the summer, so production designer Alfred Sole had a hard time to find Christmas lights for the casino set. See more »
The first victim of the Djinn wished he'd never been born and his wish was granted. That should mean that his girlfriend and everyone else who knew him should have their memory of him wiped clean. She should not be grieving for him. See more »
Will somebody please explain to me how the very same Jack Sholder who was responsible for the superb "The Hidden" in 1987 has ended up directing utter crap like Wishmaster 2? The actors all act as if all they're thinking of is to go home and have coffee, and they really can't be blamed since the story and dialogue appears to have been written by a five-year-old. I wish I had never watched this film.
