Storyline

WISHBABY is a savage fairytale set in a contemporary urban landscape. A troubled young black teenager MAXINE rescues an eccentric old lady EVE from an unhappy slap by a mixed-race gang of teens and is rewarded for her act of kindness with the gift of a terrible secret: how to make and operate a WISHBABY. With Eve's help Maxine gives life to a magic doll and sets out to solve her current problems, inadvertently releasing Eve's dead GOVERNESS from her astral prison and unleashing a storm of supernatural activity. Her older brother COLIN is gradually drawn into the dangerous situation created by the 'Little King' and must finally face his own mother in a brutal fight to the death. Written by Stephen W. Parsons

Scary urban fairy tale
12 October 2007 | by (Issaquah, WA) – See all my reviews

I saw a rough cut of this movie at the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival in Portland. To be honest, when I heard the premise (a doll that grants wishes) I thought it was going to be dreadful. The surprise was on me. There was nothing cheesy about this movie--it was creepy and fascinating from start to finish.

Drawing from Lovecraft, modern London, and the darkest of fairy tales, this movie has both heart and scare. The young lead actress is fantastic, and the "Governess" character will give you nightmares. The direction is terrific, as is the writing.

See it in the theater if you can. Rent it if you can't.

I'm thinking I need to make a "Wishbaby" prop for Halloween...
