Not the BEST Horror Film...But Good Anyway...
7 September 2003 | by (Newport Beach, Orange County, CA) – See all my reviews

I had heard a lot about this film before seeing it, saying it was a cross between Nightmare on Elm Street and Jeepers Creepers, and had mind bending twists like The Ring. So i rented it, the box of the movie didnt exactly raise my expectations for the film, but it was interesting None the less. I have to admit, those Ice-Nails were a definitly interesting touch, reminded me of Freddy's Claws, and i liked that. Anyway, onto the review:

The film is about a young girl, Mary, who is OBSESSED with Horror Films (Although by the looks of the films on her Dresser *Christina's House, Devil's Prey and The Fear: Resurrection* she isn't a very knowledgeable fan) and one night, disobeying her Father's requests to not see any more Horror Films, considering they're making her sleepwalk out into the Middle of the Road, she goes to see the film which is getting Rave Reviews, The Wisher, about five minutes into the film, Mary pukes and leaves the theater, knowing SOMETHING is wrong with that film. And soon, someone dressed as The Wisher from the film, is haunting Mary, following her, 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, such as a simple "I Wish You Would Just Shut Up!" turns into a helpless girl getting her tongue cut out of her mouth...And that's only the beginning...

On the acting level, i'd have to say it was at par with other DTV films, i mean you can only go so far with a bunch of Unknowns and Drew Lachey...BUT they were all actually good. Raising the bar for DTV films, i'd have to say. Mary, did a great job as the Lead, i wouldnt say she's Big Screen material yet, but maybe, because she's pretty damn good. Drew Lachey surprised me the most, i thought he would suck, but surprisingl enough, he can actually act! I wouldnt say he's the best, but he's definitly not the worst. As for the rest of the cast including Teachers, Friends, Parents, they were alright, my only REAL problem would be the guy that Mandi was screwing around with, he was horrible, but surprisingly everyone did alright for a DTV, i was surprised.

On the Gore Factor, we had a bloody cake (Which was interesting) a few glass wounds on a young girl with a cut out tongue, a lot of glass slashings to a certain girl in a pool, some more glass slashings, and a very strange glass slashing at the end where the Killer himself is forced to grant Mary's wish of "I Wish You Would Die!" and slashes himself with the glass shards. As gory and bloody as this all sounds, the majority of it is offscreen, and then shown, but there's a lot of blood spatter, i know that much.

Overall the film was pretty good, i wouldnt mind buying it, because it's not terrible. It surprised me, so would i recommend it? Yes, buy it? Depends on it you liked it that much, i for one wouldnt mind buying it, a pretty decent film. I give Spliced an 8/10, i LOVED the ending.
