Wishmaster 2: Evil Never Dies Reviews
but Andrew Divoff's return as the Djinn makes the movie worth sitting through
the effects seem very cheap here for some reason as the filmmakers intended which does disappoint, although they don't half-ass the gore
still, it's not the worst of the series, that's not til #3
and of course #4 is still tolerable
this could have been the next great horror franchise but it just keeps limping sadly on it's own feet
First of all, the special affects are downright awful. I could buy a better demon mask from a preschooler working on an art project. The deaths were unrealistic too, particularly the "bee" death at the casino.
Maybe this movie would be better if it was a comedy, because I found myself and my siblings unintentionally laughing the whole time. In fact there was one scene where the evil Djinn picks up a rock, makes it disappear and says "Magic!". For no reason at all! Did the director just think "Do you wanna know what this movie needs? A evil demon making a rock disappear and say magic for no particular reason at all!"
The deaths are unintentionally funny to. Like the scene where the inmate wants to get "wasted" so the demon makes his fellow inmated kick him to death? Lame, lame, lame, lame LAME!!!
Bottom line, this is a pretty bad horror film. Pretty, pretty bad.
