Monster Fest Rating: Wishmaster 4/ The Prophecy Fulfilled

Monster Fest Rating: Wishmaster 4/The Prophecy Fullfilled

The Djinn’s back for a fourth time, and acquires the long awaited third wish but he falls in love with the main character instead of doing his job to add on more film time.

You can tell they had no idea where to go so instead of the Prophecy being fulfilled try declined.

I could say this movie was more insulting than Wishmaster 3 but at least this one has a Rating for  trying to build something but then gives it up after 40 minutes.

Btw you could make a drinking game out of how many times everyone says “sex” in the film, and pay attention as the Djinn seeks out love advice for the next two acts of the movie.

It could have been done in a clever way but…not if you’re lazy.

This film isn’t worth any more of my efforts.

1 Bloody Knuckle.

Monster Fest Rating: I Always Know What You Did Last Summer

Monster Fest Rating: I always know what you did last summer

Nah fam…this one…I always know when to leave. Nothing much happs here except that it plays the beats of the first movie over again but in a lazier style.

The movie’s not even fun to laugh at, you’re wondering just why the Fisherman is back and what could his motivation be?

You don’t get anything but confusion in this mix so…1 Bloody Knuckle.

Monster Fest Rating: I Still Know What You Did Last Summer

Monster Fest Rating: I still know what you did last summer.

Four bloody knuckles!! This film continues from its predecessor just right!

The Fisherman is back and he’s got a hook to pick with Julie James again played by Jennifer Love Hewitt.

This time he manages to trick her and her college friends to an island getaway during a hostile hurricane season however Julie and her friends seem to have their defenses at the ready. With little to no communication, no ships sailing, and the body count rising…this could be one vacation Julie will never come back from.

No matter how ready they are, The Fisherman always seems to be two steps ahead of them…could someone be helping him?

I won’t reveal much again, but I will say this film is smart, epic and easily worth the rating. It’s just as good as the first one.

Jennifer Love Hewitt is still hawt… Anyways check it out if you haven’t!

Monster Fest Rating: I Know What You Did Last Summer

Monster Fest Rating: I know what you did last summer.

Four bloody knuckles!!

This was one of the big slasher films from the 90s along with Scream.  I’ve been eagerly awaiting to see if it lives up with age and it does.

During a wild 4th of July evening four friends accidentally run over a pedestrian. Instead of reporting it to the police decides to dump his body in the ocean and keep the secret to their Graves.

Well be careful what you wish for…because someone knows what they did and is happy to give em one way ticket to death.

All while dressed as a Fisherman this mysterious man is stalking, maiming, and making the teens’ lives a living hell.  The Fisherman won’t stop until each one is dead unless they turn the tables on his first.

I won’t reveal much, but I will say this film is smart, epic and easily worth the rating.

The plot gets convoluted at times but that’s why it’s not a five…plus Jennifer Love Hewitt is hawt… Anyways check it out if you haven’t!

Monster Fest Rating: Wishmaster 3

The Djinn is back…and in small doses.
This movie was so bad that the original actor who voiced and played the Djinn left the series before this movie could be created.

This resulting film is not making fun of those who carried on or made the movie but damn if it isn’t trying to be a good one. So the Djinn is back and he’s trying to bring more Djinn into this dimension as he’s released on a college campus.

However we don’t see much of him, we follow a boring woman’s story, her love sick boyfriend, and all sorts of the Djinn asking where she is while being in the guise of her teacher.  The Djinn hardly gets revenge on these damn college kids until after an hour or so…

There were some cool battle sequences but my suspense of disbelief was gone whereas my dislike grew.

Eventually they did stop the Djinn but…it was obtuse

This movie gets no rating…I just can’t…

Next!

Monster Fest Rating: Wishmaster 2

Wishmaster continues.  This movie dealt with wishes, souls, and an evil monster known as the Djinn.  Unlike a traditional genie, he’s very much malevolent spirit who wants to bring his buddies into our dimension by using our deepest most desires to do so.

Yeah the first one was stellar and surely a 2nd one could stay the course? No…not entirely.

This one was ok at best from an annoying main character to a very long set up for the Djinn to actually start going all out and raising hell.  However when the Djinn did use his cruel magic, he left an impact.

There was even a scene where the Djinn used an inmate’s wish to make his lawyer screw himself.

Yeah so…don’t expect too much from that but the movie does pay off in the third act when the main character finally tricks him.

It just took a lot to get there…so it ends up with 3 bloody knuckles.

Monster Fest Rating: Wishmaster

Ah yes Wishmaster, a 1994 horror classic at least to me. This movie dealt with wishes, souls, and an evil monster known as the Djinn. Unlike a traditional genie, he’s very much malevolent spirit who wants to bring his buddies into our dimension by using our deepest most desires to do so.

This movie was underrated in its time, it also featuring cameos by plenty of horror icons too. It also seemed like everyone was having a great time making the film too.

I enjoyed seeing the carnage, struggles, and effects in the film. I actually cared enough to see how the main character would survive the Djinn’s cruel game. The way things were arranged and how charismatic the Djinn was made this easily a 5 bloody knuckles rating.

The good natured insane people on Twitter that like to tell everyone how and what to think.
Who will happily like to dictate who or what you’ll create and if you’re not careful they will betray you too.
