The Final Wish kept my interest to the end. A great twist and lead off for potential continuing. Original idea Aladin meets Insidious. Again Lin Shaye, excellent performance as always. I was introduced to her in Detroit Rock City, another great. My Sweetheart found this on firestick and we like the ghosty horror stuff over the stabby. We heard of this movie at a filmmakers consortium and held interest since. Some up and coming names in The Final Wish that I know to look out for are Larry Poole and Gordon Woloson aka Gordon River. So I reccomend pop the corn switch off the lamps, light the <more>
Not That Bad, but It's Not An Award Winner. (by lyrafowlpotter)
People are honestly, being incessantly harsh about this film, it isn't bad at all. Yes this film have many issues, but it isn't aspiring to High Art as other recent films such as "Us".. No, it's not really a horror film, I'd call it more of a strange supernatural thriller. BUT, it deserves about a 5.5-6.0 rating, it is above average, on the whole. Given that, I would like to note some of the positive aspects of the film up front:1. There are a few decent twist through the progression of the film, and while it is very similar to "Wish Upon" or say "Wish <more>
Master" in terms of the overall concept is the same, but I could say that about thousands of stories and movies, so that's irrelevant. The way the story is told is different, and I think, for at least some of the film, fairly unique. 2. The lighting is used very well, with constant blue and red hues that help set an ominous tone, it is similar to the lighting used in "Mandy", but it is not "copying" it is used in an entirely different way and is used to enhance the overall mood.. 3. The overall visual aesthetic and setting of the film are great with the rural setting being used to ample affect and the old houses it is set in is beautiful in is being used very well in terms of how it is filmed. 3. The acting on the whole is very good. It is above average for a film of this nature. Lin Shaye, however, does put in a bit of a scenery chewing performance here, and is extremely entertaining, I don't think she had allusions about the quality of the film she was making. Michael Welch is likeable as well in the lead. 4. The initial set-up is great, with the opening scene, and the background of the our protagonist being minimally expounded, and actually creates some intrigue as people confront his absence, it hints at more than the script ever reveals unfortunately. 5. The pacing of the film is good, it is steady, and moves at a moderate pace. 6. As stated earlier, the story has a few decent twist. 7. The cinematography, and the way the rural setting is filmed is beautiful. 8. The score is nice and is on the whole very subtle and affecting.The primary problem I had with this film is not what most people will likely point out, but rather that at about the 40 minute mark, it suddenly drops the thread about the main character being a general jerk, and likely highly absent-minded and forgetful person who hurt a lot of people unintentionally. Why was this dropped? Unfortunately, it was due to the conventions of the plot. This film hews so close to some common plot conventions inherent in this type of film, that it unfortunately loses one of the more interesting things about the film film, and that was conflict between the lead character, his mom, and the town. We never quite understand why he made the decisions he did, and I really felt if we did, even despite some of the contrite and contrived plot conventions, it really would have elevated this film. There are other minor quibbles such as silly jump scares and plot logic issues, but its FANTASY and overall, it's fairly rooted in reality for a rather fantastical, ocassionally silly, and at times trippy film.On the whole, this was an enjoyable and decently entertaining diversion, that at least for a while, holds some mystery, and even when you know where the plot is going, you still at least have a few surprises left before the fairly predictable conclusion. Not at all as bad as these reviews on here are implying, it seems to me, they probably don't watch many films, because even if this film isn't mind blowing, it is, when all things are considered; slightly above average.Coming from someone who has watched most of the worst horror films of the 1980's, if you liked "Mirror Mirror" or "Witchboard", I see no reason not to like this one. Heck "Urban Legend" has a better rating and that film is filled with moronic jump scares and idiotic plot conventions, but it is entertaining, if you are rating those movies moderately or high and hate "The Final Wish", your might be missing the forest for the trees. Yes there are useless "Jump scares", but so what, what modern suspense film doesn't have them? "Rings" and "Ouija" currently have a slightly higher rating and this film is a heck of a lot better than "Rings" and "Ouija" in so many regards its ridiculous.God Bless ~Amy
I can't begin to describe how wonderful this film is. The director, writers and, of course, the actors combine to give us a movie so intense, frightening and haunting that you will not sleep for a month without all the lights on in the house after you've seen it. I have watched it and have been on strong tranquilizers ever since. I would love to watch it again but it is so terrifying that I dare'nt. Don't believe those low scores they are from viewers that refuse to acknowledge that greatness of this film.Life changing and unforgettable.
An interesting psychological horror film (by JessieJ1988)
Just finished this film which is a cautionary tale about the dangers of wish fulfillment. All the elements are here for a good time! Gore, setting, a kicking fun score, and spooky atmosphere. I thought that Lin Shaye was at her creepy best and the rest of the cast did a great job as well. I highly recommend if you're looking for a spooky little flick that forges some new ground against a backdrop of familiar terror tropes.
i loved it ! (by rzborst)
I think it was brilliant, coming from a culture where we grew up hearing about djinn stories, I found the storyline captivating! I dont understand how this movie got such bad reviews as it wasnt bad at all
It has the same creepy vibe of Final Destination albeit without the budget.... (by Fella_shibby)
An outta luck law student Aaron Hammond Michael Welch visits his grieving mom aft he finds out bah his dad's demise who was a collector of antiques. One of the item is a vase which can grant wishes cos of a jinn. The Wishmaster 1997 had dealt with the similar subject, Wish Upon 2017 again dealt with the similar concept with a bigger studio backing it n big star cast. In my review of Wish Upon I had stated that fans of Final Destination will love it. N now we hav The Final Wish which is written by Jeffrey Reddick, best known for creating the Final Destination 2000 film franchise. <more>
What a coincidence. But is The Final Wish better than Wish Upon? Well, without the backing of a big studio n without big star cast, this film managed to creep me out in few scenes n it does hold ur attention. With Reddick as the writer, the film does maintain tension, suspense n the creepiness. Ther r few death sequences without any gore, ther is zero nudity, we get to c the luscious lips, Melissa Bolona bathing naked with the soap foam on her boobs n some weird n irritating noises n laughter. The director is a bit novice here n the ending isn't that impactful. The cinematography is good with the bright daylight outside the house which stands all alone besides two trees n a dark n sinister vibe inside the house with all the scary antiques, especially the chair. The cast is decent with the likes of Tony Todd in a small role, Michael Welch, Melissa Bolona luscious lips n Lin Shaye. Of lately Shaye has become synonym with horror films.
