Wishmaster 3: Beyond the Gates of Hell (2001)

** (out of 4)

The third film in the series has the evil Djinn (John Novak) taking over the body of a college professor (Jason Connery) hoping that he can force one of his students (A.J. Cook) into making three wishes, which will cause the gates of hell to open up on Earth. It appears that fans of the series really, really hate this movie but since I'm not a fan then perhaps that's why I didn't mind this film too much. With that said, there's no doubt that this isn't a good movie by any stretch of the imagination but I thought it was entertaining enough if you have nothing better to do and want to watch some gory kills. One good thing the film did have going for it is that we got real special effects and not just a bunch of fake looking CGI, which is something that the majority of the horror films from this era had switched over to. The gore effects aren't going to remind anyone of the work of Tom Savini but I thought they were good enough and at least the director knew to deliver the gore in a film like this. We even get a woman being attacked by rats and perhaps the highlight of the film is a scene where a woman wishes that she was skinny so the Djinn basically makes her puke up her insides. This scene isn't nearly as effective as the one in Lucio Fulci's CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD but it's still pretty good on its own. Another thing I liked about the movie was the performance of Cook who I thought was very cute in the role but she also turned in a good performance. Sure, there's nothing Oscar-worthy here and she's not given too much to do but for the third film in a bad horror series I thought she delivered the goods and more. Novak is good as the evil guy and even his look is quite good. WISHMASTER 3 still suffers from going on way too long and there are simply too many spots where there's just nothing interesting happening. Still, as far as horror films goes, there are much worse out there than this one.
