Sometimes it’s amazing to know that certain things in the world actually exist. For instance – did you know that a motorized ice cream cone exists? If you didn’t, then please feel free to Google it and have your mind blown. And did you also know that four (yes, I said four) Wishmaster horror movies exist? Yeah, if your mind wasn’t blown by the motorized ice cream cone, then it surely is now.
Thanks to my friend alcohol, I was able to finally sit down and watch the 4th installment in the Wishmaster franchise, and I have to say that it was as gloriously bad as I had hoped. Our favorite wish-granting demon Djinn is back and this time he wants to fall in love. Awwwwww. But before he tries to seal the deal with a lucky lady, he has to have an epic fight in an alleyway with a meathead bouncer.
Well that was…..pretty awful. Can we talk for a minute about how we see Djinn literally smash the bouncer’s hand apart and then in the next shot, his hand is completely intact? Continuity is for suckers. And my boy Djinn should have gone to some voice-acting classes. He doesn’t sound very menacing, especially when he’s having a monologue with the now deceased bouncer about what day they pick up the trash. Speaking of which, gotta love how the bouncer just “floated” over to the dumpster so conveniently and being impaled by a pipe. It’s all in good cheesy Direct-to-DVD fun though, and Wishmaster 4 definitely delivered the goofy goods and also delivered one of the worst fight scenes in horror history. What’s that? You wish to see that clip again? GRANTED!
