It won't do much for grown-ups, but a camp slumber-party classic is born.

Fashioning itself as a teen horror, Wish Upon is far too tame for most actual adolescents ...

Feels like the result of some kind of diabolical, chimpanzee-fingered pact.

Wishing this film out of existence right now.

Seldom has a teen protagonist been as annoying as the one in this high-concept high-school horror.
July 27, 2017
Funny this may be, but for all the wrong reasons.
July 15, 2017
This is forgettable stuff.

I do like the last scene. It's quick, cutthroat and, considering the relative timidity of the horror throughout the majority of the picture, suitably shocking. It's the other 95-percent that isn't good.

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.
July 14, 2017
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.
July 14, 2017
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.
July 13, 2017
Never goes far enough to truly scare anyone. Even easy-to-please teens might wish for their time back.
July 13, 2017
A deeply silly midsummer lark that makes up for the fact that it's about nothing by being incredibly entertaining.
July 13, 2017
In this somewhat disappointing summer at the movies, Wish Upon offers a welcome glimmer of magic.
July 13, 2017
Had director John R. Leonetti the slightest interest in the inner lives of teenage girls (i.e., at least half the film's characters), Wish Upon wouldn't so often mistake "light" for "silly."
July 13, 2017
Beyond middle-schoolers, it's unclear who would enjoy this derivative, cliche-filled exercise in horror lite.
July 13, 2017
The best thing you can say about it is that the acting is alright, there are a few decently executed moments of nastiness, the whole thing is in focus and you can understand what's being said.
