Quick…..make a wish! Granted. Ok, I’m assuming your wish was to have a post about my excitement for the movie The Final Wish. To be honest, I wasn’t even expecting to write this post. This film flew waaaaaay under my radar, and it wasn’t until I saw that it would be having a ‘one night only‘ screening on January 24th in select theaters that I started to really pay attention to it.
Yes, the whole ‘grant a wish’ premise has been done before in the Wishmaster franchise and most recently in 2017’s Wish Upon (which actually wasn’t all that terrible). But did either of those have scream…..I mean screen vets Lin Shaye and Tony Todd?!? What about the original writer/creator of Final Destination?!? Nope, didn’t think so. Rather than me copy and pasting the synopsis of The Final Wish from Wikipedia, let’s watch the trailer real quick together and get a feel for it:
Am I expecting the greatest horror movie of all time with The Final Wish? No. But from the looks of the trailer and from early reviews, this looks fun and could be a nice little surprise. If you’re down, go look up your local theater and see if The Final Wish is playing there on January 24th. And stay after the movie for a special pre-taped Q&A with the cast and crew!
