Watch wish upon 2017 full movie online. A teenage girl discovers a box with magical powers, but those powers comes with a deadly price.
The movie “Wish Upon” is another one of those movies that would be memorable if it were a lot better or a lot worse. Joey King (“Oz the Great and Powerful”) stars as Claire Shannon, a teenage girl whose mother killed herself years earlier. Claire grew up into an unhappy teenager who feels like a pariah and gets bullied. She’s also humiliated that her father, Jonathan (Ryan Phillippe), dumpster-dives all over town, even across the street from her school. Then her dad finds a mysterious box inscribed with Chinese characters. It’s a wishing box that gives its owner seven wishes. The downside is, every time a wish comes true, somebody dies. And we’re off!
That sounds like a decent setup for a schlock horror flick, but it’s hard to tell what director John R. Leonetti (“Mortal Kombat: Annihilation”) and writer Barbara Marshall saw in this story. The screenplay made The Black List, an annual film industry survey of the “most liked” unproduced screenplays. But it’s tough to discern from the evidence onscreen that anybody could see something remarkable in this material, besides the possibility of making money from people who thought they’d be getting a great or even good horror film, as opposed to one of those here-and-gone time-wasters that I used to watch at the dollar theater when I was a kid. The best thing you can say about it is that the acting is alright, there are a few decently executed moments of nastiness, the whole thing is in focus and you can understand what’s being said.
