I must admit, this is one of my favorite horror films. Tammy Lauren kind of overacts, but that doesn't ruin the movie. There is plenty of gore to satisfy gorehounds. And for the budget this fim had, the CGI and creature effects were incredible. This is recommended to everyone who is a fan of the genre. GO AND SEE IT. NOW. (10 out of 10!!)

Who knows what prompted me to see this movie in the first place? I certainly cannot answer that, but I guess it saying something that I didn't walk out midway through the movie. Of course that might be because the movie is relatively short.
It isn't dreadfully bad, but just thoroughly unremarkable in all respects. Cheesy dialogue, disengaged acting, and special effects that are competent though hardly inspiring is what distinguishes this movie. Some people with statue fetishes might find a few scenes noteworthy but otherwise this movie leaves no lasting impact. The fact that film, which performed tepidly at the box office, inspired 3 sequels (at least) serves as further testament to the utterly deplorable state of the US fiml industry.
That having been said, renting this film will not leave you feeling totally ripped off, so enjoy the limited entertainment value it provides.

A WOMAN [TAMMY LAUREN] ACCIDENTALLY FREES AN EVIL GENIE [ANDREW DIVOFF] FROM SOME KINDA JEWEL. GRANTING WISHES THAT BACKFIRE, THE GIRL MUST NOW FIND A WAY TO PUT THE GENIE BACK IN HIS JEWEL. HAS SOME COOL MURDER SEQUENCES, BUT, IT'S JUST NOT AS GOOD AS IT COULD'VE BEEN. FILLED WITH GORE AND OVER-THE-TOP HORROR VIOLENCE. HORROR FANS SHOULD LIKE THIS, BUT, IF YOU'RE LOOKING TO SEE A REALLY GOOD HORROR MOVIE, THIS MIGHT NOT BE WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING FOR. HAS A REALLY GOOD MOTORHEAD SONG AT THE END CREDITS. FOLLOWED BY THREE DIRECT-TO-VIDEO SEQUELS.

Be careful what you wish for! Indeed, a slant on the olde genie mythos harking back to its primordial origins in the Djinn, demonic creatures who exist between the worlds; and if granted the opportunity, would possess the realm of men for their own. In this instance, an ancient Djinn is seen coalescing with arcane rulers from the Middle-East in a truly memorable scene of horror and mutilation, as he twists the wishes of mortals to is own morbid design.
A Sorcerer imprisons him within a ruby gem, concealed inside a statue of Ahura-Mazda, the Zoroastrian deity of light and darkness, but is damaged upon transport in modern times, as it was scheduled to be added to the acquisitions of a Collector {played by Robert Englund}, but ignorance and intoxication brought the blood ruby {equivalent to a genie's bottle, as subsequent legendry would water-down and dictate}, and comes into the hands of a deck worker, an ignoramus who sells it to a pawnshop for a pithy sum - its proprietor who then himself takes it to be priced, but his own ignorance is evident as well, as he is also offered a small sum for this treasure.
A Jr. High School teacher, a friend of the pricer, comes into possession of it, who forthwith has it tested with certain infrared equipment, where it subsequently explodes, releasing the Djinn within, who goes forth upon the earth to wreak havoc upon a world of vengeful, vein, and greedy mortals. The Djinn basically amplifies the desires of the wishers, unto literal scenarios, with a deadly twist in every instance. She meets with a folklorist to gain more information on this terrible foe, who explains some of the origins of these creatures, but she also meets with a morbid and poetic demise.

The horror genre has suffered in the past decade from derivative movies; sex sex sex movies; and generally unimaginative scripts. WISHMASTER is a refreshing, albeit gory, change, and thanks to the skills of an inventive director, and a tongue in cheek cast, succeeds in establishing a different kind of horror. As Jenny O'Hara, who is great as the folklore teacher, exlains to innocent Tammy Lauren, genies (or djinn) are not the Barbara Eden, happy little genies who come out and grant wonderful wishes. No, djinn are malevolent, evil and want only to rule our world. Andrew Divoff is frightfully good as the Djinn, and in assuming his human form, an antithesis of the handsome hunk. With his blazing blue eyes and potmarked skin, Divoff's handsomeness is swarthy and perfect for the part. The effects are good; the gore is plenty, but creatively filmed. I'm looking forward to the sequels, and even if they aren't as good, they tried something different. By the way, Tony Todd (Candyman) has a brief scene in which his desire to "escape" is granted micheivously.

When an evil genie, known as a djinn, is released, he turn people's wildest dreamsinto their darkest nightmares!
Wow. This movie is one of the best horror movies ever! Andrew Divoff was a great djinn and the special effects were awesome for it's time. The director did a good job! He made the movie feel creepy and dark like it's supposed to! See this movie! You will not be dissapointed!

Andrew Divoff is the whole show here as the "Wishmaster". He seems to be having the time of his life here as Djinn, an evil genie from "A 1001 Arabian Tales". He is bound to Tammy Lauren, and manages to get powerful by manipulating people into making wishes, which he uses to kill them, kind of 'be careful what you wish for' style. The ingrediants are all here to make a great horror movie; good villian, good story, high concept kills, but it falls short. There is little suspense, and eventually you can figure out the end. If I had a wish, I would wish for Wes Craven to have directed it instead of producing it.
