In the beginning of the times, God created life into universe: light gave birth to angels, earth to men and fire to djin, creatures condemned to dwell in the void between the worlds. One who wakes a djin shall be given three wishes. Upon granting the third, an unholy legion of djins are freed through a doorway between the worlds upon the Earth. In 1127 A.D., in Persia, a sorcerer lures and traps a powerful Djinn in the stone of secret fire. In the present days, a drunken crane operator drops the valuable statue of Ahura Mazda over the assistant of Raymond Beaumont on the harbor, and one worker finds the huge and priceless opal red stone where Djin is seized. Alexandra Amberson, who works in an auction house, receives the stone for evaluation and accidentally awakes Djin. The evil creature is released later, charges the stone with people souls and feeds with their fears, while chasing Alexandra to force to make three wishes and unleash the demoniac fiends upon Earth.

User Reviews: WOW what a cool fantasy Horror wishmaster is as it’s full of amazing practical FX with just a hint here & there of c.g.i as this was 1997 before c.g.i completely took over & that’s one of the great things about this Horror gem it’s stunning creature designs & inventive grotesque death scenes.
The Wishmaster is an evil demon known as a Djinn basically an evil genie that gets let loose on modern day California 1997.
The creature looks FANTASTIC thanks to the legendary Robert Kurtzman who is a practical FX wizard as well as the director of Wishmaster & he’s a real genre talent.
I have alot of Nostalgia & love for Wishmaster since i owned it on video when it first came out to buy way back in the 90’s & I’ve loved it ever since.
Wishmaster has a real sense of fun about it with dark humour & AWESOME creatures & lots of fun horror legend cameos & one of my fave little cameo bit parts is of Joe "captain Rhodes" Pilato as a drunken crane operator.
