To me it was an excellent movie, for a horror didn't need to get allgory but it did provide some of that for people who like a lot of that,sometimes better to show just enough and leave the rest to theimagination, we get the idea/picture. There was good suspense, drama,and plot twists. Versus other horror films this is good as any otherever made if not better, its a high school coming of age horror film,about what you would expect a film like this to be. Like the diversityin the movie and with an Asian male in it not being emasculated.

I have to say I really did not go into 'Wish Upon' expecting to like it. I have been almost entirely put off the supernatural horror genre by failed attempt after failed attempt. The only upside to that is that when I do come across one I enjoy, I really enjoy it. 'Wish Upon' is not a bad film at all.
Let's get the negatives out of the way first so we can finish on a high. The only ones I see are that the "wish" element to any film can be incredibly frustrating in terms of the way the characters use them (or misuse them). There are times when you just want to scream at the screen. Then again I've never been lucky enough to be granted any wishes, so what would I know?
The other downside comes in terms of the death sequences (which are actually a strength in a different way, which we'll get to soon). The negative side is that they are trying to be like 'Final Destination' and yet failing in every way. What made the death scenes in 'Final Destination' so brilliant was that every one of them had their own little mini-twist. It made you think they were going to die in one way, and then did it in the completely opposite way. 'Wish Upon' felt like it was going for something similar, but all it really ever achieved was dragging out the inevitable.
Into the positives of the movie now. Let's start with why the death sequences were also well done. What I liked about them was that for a PG-13 movie they were extremely graphic at times. They pushed the envelope to the absolute limit and got away with it. 'Saw' would be proud.
The dialogue and character development were also extremely strong for a horror movie. Joey King in the lead role did an excellent job of carrying the movie and making sure we cared about the things that were happening and the people they were happening to.
Finally the ending was a real bonus for me. It was unique. Without giving anything away I'll simply say it is a lot more abrupt than expected. It didn't fall into the usual extended cliché horror movie ending. I liked it.
Whether people will find 'Wish Upon' scary is a tough one for me to judge. There certainly is a lot more potential for audience members to find it terrifying than there is a lot of other modern horror films. If you're in two minds about seeing this one my advice would be to give it a chance. It might just pleasantly surprise you.
Decent horror movie. Lots of people have said it reminds them of Final Destination, which is true except Final Destinstion's kills are more prolonged and inventive and they are bloodier. Hence the movie's R rating. Wish Upon tells a good story. Its cool to see Ryan Philippe acting again since he fell off for awhile before making a comeback via indie thrillers. Wish Upon is mainly aimed at a younger high school crowd. There is something about the film that just...doesn't really take off. It almost leaves the viewer in a place where they are getting amped up for a big reveal or some type of overwhelming situation but then it nosedives and leaves us wanting more. Its kind of like blue balls:) overall it's a typical teen pg13 horror that while entertaining enough, lacks any real shocks or horror.
