The evil Djinn is awakened by a female thief, Morgana, during a botched robbery. He takes credit for the crime, letting himself be put into prison so that he can offer twisted wishes to prisoners in return for their souls. If Morgana asks him for three wishes, then his race, the Djinn, can take over Earth, killing all humanity.Written by
Andrew Divoff, who plays the djinn in human form in this film and in the first Wishmaster film, does not blink when his eyes are visible. He does not blink even during scenes that his eyes are visible for 2-3+ minutes. See more »
The first victim of the Djinn wished he'd never been born and his wish was granted. That should mean that his girlfriend and everyone else who knew him should have their memory of him wiped clean. She should not be grieving for him. See more »

Quirky horror series has redeeming comedic moments.
Wishmaster 2: Evil Never Dies is the second installment of the Wishmaster series. There is nothing groundbreaking or innovative in this film, it's just entertaining to watch. In the sequel to the mildly successful prequel, the Djinn is freed again from his prison and proceeds to wreak havoc on the human race. He does this by granting his victim a wish, an effective method for achieving his goal because everybody wants something. The film has it's gory glory moments, something I thought was done well. There are a few comedic moments, especially when the Djinn approaches somebody to grant them a wish. The actor who plays the Wishmaster is perfect. This guy needs more work in the horror/sci-fi field, he has a sinister look to him and an unsettling voice. If you're a fan of horror movies, give the Wishmaster series a try.
