Bullies Are Violently Put on Notice in the Trailer for ‘Wish Upon’
“Be careful what you wish for.” While some viewers believe that the principle was fully and adequately explored by the Brendan Fraser-starring remake of Bedazzled in 2000, the new film Wish Upon suggests otherwise. On June 30, the upcoming horror film will hit theaters with a reminder that wish-granting entities are by and large not to be trusted, prone to twisting words or misconstruing intentions all to teach the user a valuable lesson about... phrasing? Or not being malevolent? The real underlying moral of the “be careful what you wish for” movies is probably something closer to “use specific and unambiguous language when forging a binding contract,” but the youth of America could probably use a lesson on legal entrapment too, so it’s really all good.
