Wishmaster (1997)

3.5 / 5

This one is pretty darned fun in a comic booky kind of way (but slightly better I suppose). The idea is that Djinn (sort of an evil Genie) was trapped in a stone and came free taking over the body of a bum. From there he must offer to grant wishes but there always seems to be some dark horrific twist to the wishes usually ending up in death. It's actually pretty action packed and the effects are nice also. There isn't any shortage of blood and the story is pretty easy to follow and relatively interesting. It's not going to scare anyone but if you like bloody action oriented stuff then this should hit the spot!

Availability:  On DVD
