A tense clip has emerged from John R. Leonetti’s upcoming Wish Upon, a film which looks set to become one of the horror hits of the summer. The clip shows Ryan Phillippe slipping underneath his car following a blowout, but that jack doesn’t look altogether sturdy…
The Monkey’s Paw-like tale stars The Conjuring’s Joey King as Claire, a bullied teenager whose father (Phillippe) gives her a magical box that looks to be the answer to all of her problems. While initially seeming to give her the life she always wanted, the wishes granted by the box come at a hefty price, as those close to Joey begin dying in violent, elaborate ways. Wish Upon also stars The Maze Runner’s Ki Hong Lee and Twin Peaks’ Sherilyn Fenn. Annabelle director Leonetti directs from a script by Barbara Marshall, who penned last year’s Viral.
The box will be opened when Wish Upon is unleashed into cinemas on July 14th.
