Overview

Artisan's double feature Wishmaster / Wishmaster 2: Evil Never Dies, about the evil nature of wishes, includes both films, one a special edition and the other a basic, bare-bones edition. Both movies are presented in anamorphic widescreen and look very good. The original Wishmaster tends to look much more clear than the second film, though both transfers are basically clean and crisp. The audio presentation includes Dolby Digital 5.1 for both films. The music, effects, and dialogue are clean and presentable, with the original utilizing the rear speakers more than the sequel. Wishmaster includes some promising extra features, including a very enlightening commentary track by director Robert Kurtzman, second unit director Greg Nicataro, and screenwriter Peter Atkins. The track is light, though tends to lean more towards the technical side of the film's history and production. Also included on Wishmaster is a very informative half-hour documentary on the making of the film, featuring interviews with director Robert Kurtzman, actor Andrew Divoff (who plays the evil wish-granting Djinn), and special effects supervisor Tom Rainone. Finally, an international and domestic theatrical trailer is included (full frame), as well as production notes and cast and crew information. The Wishmaster 2: Evil Never Dies extra features consist solely of an anamorphic theatrical trailer, as well as the typical production notes and cast and crew information found on most discs. Wishmaster 2 was not half as popular as its predecessor, so the exclusion of multiple extra features is not surprising. Overall, this is a very nice package from Artisan featuring two gory films that should delight hardcore horror fans.

Forget what you've heard about Genies, these movies are about the Jinn. In this series the Jinn are the personification of Evil. They're pure malevolence. They're the Demons the Angels Battled. They came after the Angels, but are far older than the Human Race. Their only goal is to enslave the Humans and remake the world in their own image. Their power is beyond comprehension, and only has one limitation - the Jinn's power can only be used when granting a Wish. Both these movies star a Jinn who'd been trapped in an enchanted stone. Once free he had to charge the stone with human souls, then grant his waker 3 wishes. Once the third wish was granted, it would mean the Apocalypse. Both movies the Jinn twists the wishes into a horrific version of what each wisher wanted, terrifying versions of Careful What You Wish For. Both times the Jinn is unkillable. Both times the only way to stop the Jinn, was to return him to stone.

I first saw the first Wishmaster on TV and I said that I liked the movie so when I went to Wal-Mart and saw it I bought it. This is a cool movie because its scary and I only gave it 4 stars because I did't like seeing people having their heads burst open and blood and guts flying out everywhere. Other than that if you like horror movies, get this one.
