The critics were way too hard with this movie. Yeah, there were a few sequences that looked dumb and somewhat false, but let's be honest guys, what horror movie doesn't include a sequence like that? And I'm including the horror cult classics too.
But anyway, Mr. Leonetti brought us something similar but still different to his latest horror film 'Annabelle'. 'Wish Upon' is indeed a horror/fantasy movie that is completely worth mentioning between the most original and interesting films of the genre in recent years.
First of all, I was completely impressed by the performance of Joey King. It was completely convincing and I hope her future jobs were as good as this one, or even better.
The story, although some may find it as a cliché, it is very well managed and eventually you will forget that there were other films that had a similar story-line before. The script is well done and entertaining.
And now, about what I'm putting as the title for this review, the movie isn't necessarily a horror movie with jump-scares and gore throughout; it is a film that leaves you an important lesson: If you find an strange object on a strange and unusual place, would be better if you don't touch it...
Thank you for reading!
