Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Fantasy Horror Thriller - This is a supernatural horror film aimed at teens, especially girls, and while the bloodshed is within PG-13 levels, there are disturbing and brutal moments of violence that are too intense for kids, so parents be warned, as well as be aware of some language and teen sensuality. Young Joey King is the lead, with known older actors such as Ryan Phillippe in smaller supporting roles.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Poor The best thing you can say about it is that the acting is alright, there are a few decently executed moments of nastiness, the whole thing is in focus and you can understand what's being said. The violent scenes might play as outrageous, in midnight movie fashion, if the direction were capable of putting an intention, any intention, across.

Rex Reed Full Review
Poor Like Claire, and possibly the producers, I wish I'd never seen this movie. Fortunately for me (and those sacrificial lambs nearest and dearest), that desire will never be granted. ...plays like a work of nihilistic pulp condescending to its audience by portending a greater sense of social awareness than it has any real interest in taking seriously.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Below Average Almost none of the deaths in Wish Upon have any thematic connection to the main character's wishes. With no moral weight in any of Clare's actions, the only wish that ends up satisfyingly granted is, in the final and utterly predictable tableau, the audience's.
