Wish Upon (2017)

dir. John R. Leonetti

Wish Upon teaches us about the precious fragility of life. For example, it shows us that a mild bump on the head while you’re in the bath can almost certainly lead to you drowning in your own blood. Or that getting the very tip of your hair caught in the garbage disposal will definitely result in your body being pulverised within a matter of moments. Throw in a dose of spooky Chinese mysticism and a lot of Joey King looking perturbed, and you’ve got the box-ticking, paint-by-numbers horror of Wish Upon.
