"suprisingly good movie - i thought this one might be like the other teen slasher flicks but i was wrong. it was a unique film .i thought the killings were clever in the way they had diff ideas and it wasnt just ur average killing with knife like in most horror movies the killings were creative and the special effects were cool, the killings actually looked real and the story was pretty cool idea, the whole plot and the charcters were also good. The movie is about this guy who gets sent a mysterious (( totem )) sent to him in the mail and he takes it to a shop to find out what its worth and what it is and in the process learns some information about the powers it holds. When he goes home he makes 3 wishes and it leads to a series of events and mysterious killings start happening and noone knows who is doing the killing and you never think it is that person that is actually doing it- i was suprised at the end. so this is a unique film its dif than ur average teen slasher like i said-its very creative , unique original film and i recomend it- it was fun to watch."
Hi-Class Sexy Horror Thriller

"A greatly entertaining, extremely well-made movie about a love-stricken teenager (played by Michael Weston) who receives a strange totem in the mail, sent annonymously, that will supposedly grant its owner three wishes. Ready to just toss it, he only makes a wish on it as a lark at the prodding of his friend; a wish that quickly comes to fruition. Unfortunately, the wish also seems to set into motion a series of regrettable and sometimes gruesome incidents. With Alexandra Holden doing a great job playing Weston's dream girl Samantha, "Wishcraft" is smart, very sexy, and has a nice cast of characters worth caring about. It also successfully explores some of the comedic potential of its premise without making a fool of itself and killing its own status as plausible horror movie. To top it off, this has far and away one of the greatest endings in all of movie history, not just horror movies. Nine out of ten.
December 14 Revision - the above is my original review from October, where I gave it four stars. As time goes by, though, I find this is more and more one of the movies that cements itself deeper in my memory as something really tremendous. Some parts are merely good or very good instead of excellent, but the ending makes up for any minor shortcomings. I can no longer justify keeping this at anything less than a full 5 stars."

"This movie caught my eye in the video store!!! The cover was really interesting!!!And I was going to put it back because it was never out in theathers, and so I thought that it was going to suck! But on the other hand, It didnt!!! Its like 1996's "The Craft" meets 1999's "The Faculty" The cast are great, the story is excellent, and the directing is stylish!!! I dont know why this wasnt released in theathers! But it should of been out in theathers!!! This movie is a MUST-SEE!!!"
