Movie Reviews

“A deeply silly midsummer lark that makes up for the fact that it’s about nothing by being incredibly entertaining (…) The silly horror film ‘Wish Upon’ is a future camp classic” Emily Yoshida: Vulture

“‘Wish Upon’ would rather make you jump than gag. The splatter is deployed cautiously and sometimes wittily” Jeannette Catsoulis: The New York Times
