This is forgettable stuff.
A spooky teen story that's not particularly heavy on the scares and over-delivers on the unintentional giggles,
What would you wish for? World peace? Instagram fame? Or maybe for Hollywood to stop making horror films so needlessly violent, so deeply cynical, so aggressively targeted at teenage girls.
A bland B-movie that begs the question: How did this get made when so many good films never escape development purgatory?
For cheap horror thrills, you can wish for better, but you can do much worse.
The splatter is deployed cautiously and sometimes wittily, the story moving briskly from wishes granted to costs exacted ...
The blunt momentum of the movie's plot starts to sag, with tin-eared dialogue making it obvious that the the story can't possibly offer up much more than variations on one ridiculous idea again and again.
Never goes far enough to truly scare anyone. Even easy-to-please teens might wish for their time back.
A deeply silly midsummer lark that makes up for the fact that it's about nothing by being incredibly entertaining.
