Be careful what you wish for... because you might just get it.
3 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Pretty slick production for a short film.

A heavy metal high school student wants to be popular... just like the school jock. So, he conjures a spell from the Book of Pure Evil and his wish comes true. Unfortunately, not all wishes come true as expected. A dream date may suddenly turn into a nightmare. And Todd is not the only student with dreams that can be fulfilled with the book.

Two thumbs up to the writers, director, and performers. The production is high quality with the feel of a dream state. It is a comedy with a Poe like finish. I wish they could flesh this out to a full length film.
