Andrew Divoff, the evil wish granting genie (or Djinn) of the first film, is again released (by an uncredited Corey Haim who's then girlfriend is the star of the film) and find himself in prison. There he again grants lots of wishes that go horribly wrong for the wisher. Tiny Lister plays one of the prison guards, so that fun. Bokeem Woodbine also shows up in a very small part early in the film. The main plot though revolves around the Dijinn trying to collect enough should to start the apocalypse and the surviving robber, Holly Fields, tries to stop him. The special effects are well done. Director Jack Sholder has some minor genre classics to his credit ("The Hidden" and "Alone in the Dark") and does a solid job here. Overall, this is a competently made horror films that is never boring, even if it's completely forgettable.

I know this is supposed to be terrible and yeah, it's pretty cheesy, but I have a blast with this sequel every time. Love the premise of the Wishmaster in prison and at the casinos. Divoff is great in the role. And Holly Fields... jeez!

Besides some good gorey scenes and great performance once by Andrew Divoff, this movie was just bad.

This series went down fast. The Wishmaster, in Djinn form, is mostly seen in just snippets, visions in our heroine's mind. The story is dull and the absolute failure of God's warrior seems a bit much. The movie is poorly acted, and the prison scenes were laughably unrealistic.

They were better able to utilize the Djin to its full potential, with more wishes, and a great performance by Andrew Divoff as the Djin. He plays EVIL very well. They got it right with this one.

If not for Andrew Divoff this film would be trash. Luckily the last Divoff Wishmaster movie let's him pay the character with the amount of sleaze ball fun a premise like an evil genie goes to jail deserves.

Falls into the campy cheesy goodness range!

Silly and mildly entertaining.

The main character, the wishmaster is played very nicely and it's still a good movie to watch but it's not better than the first part. The Djinn is still the main attraction in this film.

That's what I call a funny horror movie

This 1999 horror movie sequel was a little more gory then the first one. It had some real funny scenes too! I was surprised too see Bokeem Woodbine and Tommy Lister in this movie. Andrew Divoff plays the Djinn perfectly. Director Jack Sholder did a great job!

The Wishmaster costume looks better than in the first. The CGI is still terrible, but Divoff is terrific. Evil. Never. Dies.

The good news is that Divoff is back as the Wishmaster. Unfortunately that can't make up for a lack of everything that made the original fun. A disappointing sequel.

Andrew Divoff reprises his role as The Wishmaster in this sequel . He once again gives a great performance . The rest of the cast is fairly forgetable though.The main problem with this sequel is that it has a very low budget so while some of the effects work well alot of them just look too cheap to be convincing . Recommended only because of Andrew's great performance.

The Wishmaster is unleashed after a botched robbery attempt in an art gallery. Unspectacular horror that offers some good moments while granting wishes, particularly to some of the inmates. Divoff stands apart as the Djinn with his calm but creepy demeanor.

possibly, but horror movie sequals usualy start sucking

Decent, yet not enough to be fully enjoyable. It gets slow and tires out. The make-up is nice but the effects do start to get cheap looking. The characters aren't so great, and it's easy to know how the film will end. Slow pacing, though there are plenty of evil wish-twists to sit through.

Well, this is just awful. Why do I subject myself to these kinds of things, time and again, you wonder? Because, my friend, I have no desire to live a life of taste or quality.

How the mighty have fallen. Not too good.
