Editorial Reviews

Most of the special effects aren't exactly realistic, but they are fun and cool, in a KNB fx sorta way. The big scene at the beginning is particularly sweet, with the crawling snake-monster-man. The big party at the end is pretty cool too, though nothing there matches the snake dude. And, even though the concept itself is pretty stupid, the conceit that a genie can manipulate one's wishes to kill them allows for plenty of potential amusement, which is exploited nicely

There are few horror movies I haven't seen, but most of them always dissappoint me because they try to be humerous or just show that the killer or monster is able to do anything it wants. Wishmaster, however, was great because it included little to no jokes, and I think that this is good because in a horror movie, I want to be scared, if I want to get a laugh I can watch a comedy. Also, the idea that the djinn can't do anything until asked to is just wonderful. Going on, the movie is pretty gory which would attract horror fans, and at some parts very non-gory which would please people who are rather watching suspense. Lastly, and I might be the only one that thinks so, the djinn isn't just 'cool' in both forms, I think he's absolutely attractive in both forms. To just refer to his human disguise, Nathaniel, there is no doubt that his wolfish smile and good looks are obvious. The djinn itself is just like a slightly evil version of Nathaniel, but he's still cool-and-great looking. I also think the djinn's creepy voice is incredible, and I like it how he speaks in a bit of an ancient, slow, almost british english, while near the end he's learned a bit and is a bit more slang-like, which gives him a cool edge. I absolutely love this because the old concept of 'Be careful what you wish for' is touched upon. In my humble opinion, Wishmaster is the best horror movie there is, and anybody who thinks I'm crazy and thinks it's not so, I will be happy to lead a flame war, because I will be defending the Djinn and Nathaniel to my last breath! "...if you can't beat 'em, burn 'em, baby!" (from the final shodown scene)

Now, I'm not necessarily gonna say that 'Wishmaster' is 'good', in the conventional sense, but damned if it isn't extremely amusing. It's hard to say how we're supposed to take this movie, as it isn't a parody, but it doesn't really seem to be entirely serious either. And frankly, it really never works as a horror movie, but amusing is amusing, and this movie is damn amusing. That's all it takes.

About 4 of the 5 stars go towards Andrew Divoff's absolutely fabulous high camp performance as the Wishmaster himself. Everything about him is great, particularly his ridiculous voice and his whole sleazy, pseudo-high class look and attitude. And the dialogue the give him is absolutely priceless, particularly in the scenes where he must manipulate people into wishing for something. I can't describe it really, but trust me, he's totally great.

Most of the special effects aren't exactly realistic, but they are fun and cool, in a KNB fx sorta way. The big scene at the beginning is particularly sweet, with the crawling snake-monster-man. The big party at the end is pretty cool too, though nothing there matches the snake dude. And, even though the concept itself is pretty stupid, the conceit that a genie can manipulate one's wishes to kill them allows for plenty of potential amusement, which is exploited nicely here. He kinda cheats some, but who the hell cares. And, all the roles and cameos for horror icons are kinda fun too. They got Kane Hodder, Ted Raimi, Robert Englund, Angus Scrimm, Reggie Bannister, Tony Todd, Joseph Pilato and maybe a few others than I missed or forgot.

Yeah, I'm done. This movie rules.

As I nestled in for Halloween night with a couple of horror flicks, I really didn't expect anything more than the usual cookie cutter blood and slash fare that is to be expected in a watered down genre. What I found in Wes Craven's Wishmaster, was a smart and original film. It revolves around a population of "Djinn" (pronounced like gin) who are supernatural jeannies dwelling in the void between the worlds. The Djinn bide their time till they are able to find some poor smuck willing to make 3 wishes, at which time the door to our world will be opened up and allow the Djinn to rule. I found this to be an original idea for once. I can't remember seeing any other film quite like it. The effects and make up are done nicely and the acting was not too bad either. I didn't think the movie was particularly scary, but in today's time, not many new horror movies are. What it is, though, is an entertaining supernatural thriller. Can't bring myself to give it 5 stars just for the simple fact that I think the filmmakers confuse gore with scary. The gore/death scenes in this film are very reminiscent of the Hellraiser series, with some extraordinarily vivid images of torturous death. However, sometimes its the things we don't see that truly scare us most. All in all, I would recommend this film to most, just be sure you have a strong stomach.

This has to be one of the better horror movies of the 90's, It has style and a very original plot, and it really strays from the teeny bopper horror flicks of today, although it does seem to borrow from the Hellraiser series with some of the over the top gore effects. The story is as follows: A evil Djinn is set free form its prison, by a woman who ends up busting the Jewel in which the Djinn is trapped. After he is freed he begins a bloody Killing spree looking for the one who set him free. Not really a scary movie, but its a lot better than most of the other Horror Flicks of the 90's. Rated R for gruesome violence and Strong Language
