In this weeks installment of must see movies of the week we take a look at a strong horror movie slate. The week of October 10 offers some good scary movies, just in time for Halloween season. The following are the must see under-the-radar Blu-ray/DVD, VOD and limited theatrical releases.

WISH UPON:

Be careful what you wish for. That’s one of the messages this film relays. A teenage girl (Joey King) finds a mysterious old box, soon she finds out that the box can make any of her wishes come true. Fun, right? Not really. Little does she know that each wish comes with a deadly price (literally). People close to her will die once each of her wishes comes true. Ryan Phillippe plays King’s father in the movie. So there is that for all you Phillippe fans, such as myself. This film is plenty entertaining. The plot develops with plenty of suspenseful twists and turns. There are some really creepy deaths. You’ll never want to use the kitchen sink garbage disposal after seeing this film. The timing of the release fits nicely with Halloween a couple weeks away. This is a horror you should really check out.

Bonus Features:

  • “I Wish: The Cast Share What They Would Wish”
  • “Attic Tour with Joey King”
  • “Directing Darkness: John Leonetti and Cast Talk About Developing a Horror Film”
  • “Motion Comic: Lu Mei’s Curse and Arthur Sands Reveal The Stories Behind The Previous Owners Of The Box”

Wish Upon is out now on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD, Digital HD and VOD
