I WISH I hadn't watched this movie!
31 August 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is the sort of horror movie made by people who've either seen EVERY horror movie ever made, or have NEVER seen one in their lives. Spliced (aka The Wisher), is derivative of the best (but mostly the worst) bits of at least a dozen 80's slasher flicks. Mary (the heroine) is a medication-popping, horror movie junkie who has nightmares, is prone to sleep-walking and gets sent to the school counselor. Oh yeah, the other kids don't like her much either. The Wisher (the killer) is a hood-robed, pasty-faced, horror movie cliché with glass finger-knives. Is the killer a real person, is he a supernatural entity or is he just in Mary's head? The film throws so many "twists" and red herrings at the viewer that you just know the final explanation won't make any logical sense. When the BEST thing about a film is Drew Lachey (Nick's brother) as the pseudo-creepy wannabe boyfriend, you know you're in trouble!
