“Kind deeds pay rich dividends, evil is repaid with evil”
After her father presents her with a mysterious music box, Clare Shannon is surprised to find her every wish coming true. Her joy slowly morphs into terror as she begins to realize the bloody price of each new wish.
Presented by Orion Pictures, an arm of MGM, Wish Upon is directed by John R Leonetti (Annabelle, The Butterfly Effect 2), written by Barbara Marshall (Viral, Terra Nova) and produced by Sherryl Clark (Cloverfield, Viral) and Daniel Hammond and Gabriel Hammond (Green Room, Bad Santa 2). The film stars Joey King (The Conjuring, Independence Day: Resurgence), Ryan Phillippe (Cruel Intentions, I Know What You Did Last Summer), Shannon Purser (Stranger Things), Sydney Park (The Walking Dead), Ki Hong Lee (The Maze Runner), and Sherilyn Fenn (Twin Peaks, Two Moon Junction).
From the director of the hit chiller Annabelle, and featuring the star of The Conjuring, Wish Upon is a wickedly chilling story about an alluring object imbued with sinister and dangerous powers, a cautionary tale that takes the ‘be careful what you wish for’ theme to frightening new levels.
17-year-old Clare Shannon (Joey King) is barely surviving the hell that is high school, along with her friends, Meredith (Sydney Park) and June (Shannon Purser). So, when her dad (Ryan Phillippe) gifts her an old music box with an inscription that promises to grant the owner’s wishes, she thinks there is nothing to lose. Clare makes her first wish and, to her surprise, it comes true. Before long, she finally has it all: money, popularity and her dream boy. Everything seems perfect—until the people closest to her begin dying in gruesome and twisted ways. Now, with blood on her hands, Clare has to get rid of the box, before it costs her and everyone she loves the ultimate price.
