What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Sandie Angulo Chen Clichéd horror falls flat.
Jean-Marie Korff If you're into wasting your time, then go ahead, but if not, then rather sit this one out.
Jim Judy In the end, I had two wishes of my own while watching the story unfold over just around ninety minutes. One was that it would be over already and the second was that if the first couldn’t be granted, at least what was offered could have been better.
Tomatometer Wish Upon is neither scary nor original, but its fundamental flaws as a horror movie may make it destination viewing for after-midnight camp genre enthusiasts.
