Daily Monsterism #5

The Djinn

The Wishmaster is a fucking awful movie. Really, really bad. Pretty much everything about it — the acting, the violence and gore, the TV-standard synth score, and the shonky sets — is all so terrible it makes you cringe. The one almost saving grace of this film is Andrew Divoff’s performance as the titular genie. Makes me think that they spent all this time and money in designing and constructing the Wishmaster himself and then realised they pretty much exhausted the budget and had to do everything else on the cheap.

McFarlane Toys made a really decent stat-- I mean, figure of the Djinn in their Movie Maniacs line, right before that started to slide into mediocrity.
