a stupid flick

April 9, 2008

...there's no real originality or distinctiveness separating it from other low-budget creepers.

Reel Film Reviews

The film seems to realize its need to obscure the cast and narrative early on and does so initially with some welcome nudity and plentiful, albeit amateurish, gore.

Audience Reviews for Wishmaster 3: Beyond the Gates of Hell


Any idiot can see something is wrong. A professor and his student uncover an ancient artifact at a university in Illinois. The artifact unleashes a Djinn, a genie of sorts that grants wishes to help capture souls. The Djinn initially kills the professor and takes his body and then feasts on easy college students. Can the professor's student unlock the secrets of the artifact and rescue her classmates? "Jesus." "Not even close." Chris Angel, director of This is Not a Test, Wishmaster 4: The Prophecy Fulfilled, and A Twist of Faith, delivers Wishmaster 3: Beyond the Gates of Hell. The storyline for this picture is straightforward and cliché. The kill scenes are average to better than average with some good gore, but the plot, premise, and acting was disappointing. "I hardly know you." I recently came across this on HBOGO and always loved this series (one of those so bad its entertaining pictures). This was a step down from the first two movies which I thought were better written and had a better script. Overall, this is only worth watching for diehard horror or Wishmaster fans only. "This is a remarkable discovery." Grade: D

Wishmaster 3 is an unnecessary third film in this dull series. Poorly written and directed, the film feels tired and uninspired. Chris Angel's directing is sloppy, and it shows on-screen. The film doesn't display anything original or refreshing and instead adopts the gore factor as a tool to try to save it from mediocrity. Unfortunately, it backfires. This film is yet another pointless sequel that doesn't work, and basically ruins what the first one tried to do. The film is stupid, and not worth your time. There's nothing makes this film interesting and worth watching, and with every other low-budget straight to DVD film, it suffers because the filmmakers don't put any effort in trying to create something watchable and ultimately memorable. This is an awful film that has no redeeming qualities whatsoever. This is simply put a needless second sequel to a film that didn't need any follow-up, especially poorly thought out films that are plainly misses the mark at delivering effective horror. This is a standard low-budget affair that relies on the standard straight to DVD formula. The filmmakers clearly don't care how the film would look. The result is a film that is a mess from start to finish, a poorly executed film, one that really doesn't deliver anything worthwhile. Avoid this third film if you can. There are far better films than this one, and this ends up just being a stupid sequel that never should have been.

Divoff is out and our new Djinn loses his charisma, sense of humor, and imagination. You felt as though Divoff's Djinn could come up with the weirdest deaths, these ones are pretty basic. One man asks for the two women he most desires to love him. They end up just scratching him to death. It confused me. One great opportunity has a guy say "Blow me!" We all know what our previous Djinn would have done. AT least this time the protagonist is more likable, but we don't see these films for the leading lady. It's similar, run of the mill stuff, but less gory and less fun.
