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

A raw British horror movie
16 November 2007 | by Horror_UKSee all my reviews

One thing that UK film makers have always been good at is horror that hits the mark at the right time, and this is just what Stephen W. Parsons has done with Wishbaby.

Starring Tiana Benjamin (Eastenders/Harry Potter), Fenella Fielding (Carry on Screamng) and featuring Doc Brown, this has a plot and flow that could survive without these 'names'.

Watching at first, you wonder if it is going to be good, but very soon, you sense the raw storytelling, and that builds up to create a film that will have you thinking about various things long after the final credits (and on that subject, watch the final part of the film after the credits).

All I can say, is that this is a well thought out film, without the gloss that HAS to be placed into Hollywood productions, and that makes it worthy to be on the shelf of all horror fans.

I saw a version that was 95% complete, and I await with anticipation for the final cut.
