Storyline

A high school student named Brett Bumpers receives a mysterious package one day. He does not know who gave it to him, but after a while he finds out that the totem within the package can give him 3 wishes. When the most beautiful girl in school, Samantha, invites him to dance on the next day, he knows for sure that his first wish has come true. He uses the second one to make Samantha fall in love with him, but when someone starts killing students in the school, he realizes that it has something to do with the totem. Now it's his responsibility to save their lives. Written by rsilberman

Won't Be Fully Appreciated For Years Yet
2 July 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Years from now, when no one remembers what trends were in and it's long enough after release that nobody avoids it just because it hasn't been all over Entertainment Tonight and People Magazine, fans are going to start discovering this underrated treasure that stands well with the best of the big-name horror releases of recent years (as golden an age for the field as there's ever been).

Treads some classic ground for horror (the 'wish-granting' phenomenon with unintended consequences) and does it with flair and an injection of originality. Along the way it blends suspense, humor (although this is not a 'horror-comedy' per se), sexiness, sparse but effective moments of deep tension, and overall high production values with a skill that's admirable for a film of every genre. Adding in one of The greatest endings (plus room for a sequel, though it's doubtful whether one will materialize) in movie history and the kind of sensations that stay fresh in your mind long after viewing, in some cases possibly even strengthening with time. Highly recommended; fans of Alexandra Holden's performance here should also check out "Dead End" a great horror mystery with a very different feel than "Wishcraft" but no lesser for it.
