At least it's marginally better than "Boogeyman".
11 July 2005 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

Horror film enthusiast Mary defies her parents wishes and joins her friends to catch a glimpse of the scariest movie ever called 'The Wisher'.But five minutes into film,Mary becomes violently ill and leaves the cinema.She senses that something is wrong.Soon afterwards,someone dressed as The Wisher from the film begins to haunt Mary,stalking her and with each wish that Mary makes,The Wisher grants it,twisting it around to make it worse than what it really is."The Wisher" is an incredibly generic slasher flick that fails to generate even the slightest amount of suspense.The script is completely unoriginal and the action is rather dull.The Wisher of the title looks pretty crappy too.He's a cross between Freddy Krueger and the Creeper from "Jeepers Creepers",only with shards of glass instead of knives.The climax is awful as it doesn't make any sense at all.There is very little blood,so fans of splatter will be disappointed.So if you want to watch creepy and unsettling Canadian horror film try to find "Born for Hell" and "Rituals".Heck,even "Ginger Snaps" series is better than this turd.3 out of 10.
