John R. Leonetti (Annabelle) is gearing up for his next horror release with Wish Upon. Following a girl who discovers a box that grants her seven wishes, Wish Upon sees her wishes turn into nightmares when it all goes a bit wrong.
The trailer shows the teen girl, played by Joey King (The Conjuring), hoping to improve her life by unleashing hell on those that have wronged her. Courtesy of some classy (sort of) editing, the horror of being granted wishes is emphasised. It looks like a clash between Wishmaster, The Box and Final Destination, which could either pave way for an exciting and complex thriller or something a little more predictable and messy. I guess we will have to wait and see.
Be careful what you wish for when Wish Upon arrives in cinemas on 30th June 2017.
