Wishmaster (1997) – Filmsack Show Notes

Wishmaster 1997


Oh hi,

and thank you for breathing your hot breath on my pulsing ruby vessel and then rubbing it all over your breasts. A little over the shirt action is the absolute best way to wake a centuries old Djinn that was imprisoned by a very naughty sorcerer.

Oh…what’s a Djinn you ask? Well, I’m sort of like “a genie” but spelt like “a Django.” So you know what that means. Yep. You guessed it. You can keep that D in your mouth… because it is silent….but it also means 3 wishes!… followed by the total enslavement of all of humanity. Ya take the good. Ya take the bad and there you have… the facts of strife. the facts of ….

Ok, let’s move onto the wishing! first wish? Would you like to be rich? It’s our number one request. How does a million bucks sound? Yeah? …As you wish….bam! your mom is dead. WHAT!? That’s how wishes work! You ask for something and you get it! but at a price. This time your mom footed the bill. Thanks ma!

Alright, second wish…go. What do you mean you don’t want any more wishes…well that’s not how this works. Once you wake up the Djinn you don’t just get to change your mind about waking up the Djinn. Now rub my ruby red gem and make a wish. What’s that now? “Astonish you”… well out of all the vague bullshit wishes…fine…see that guy over there…how would you like to see his skeleton make a break for it? Yeah…As you wish. oooh…look at that skeleton go…holy shit it really wants to get out of that guy doesn’t it. Wow this doesn’t usually happen…but I think I just Astonished myself.

What’s that? You got a third wish…well do it lady…let’s bring this thing home. “You wish Peter Atkins had stuck to writing Hellraiser movies.” Shit. Randy, Fear the Djinn!!

  • Once, in a time before time, God breathed life into the universe. And the light gave birth to Angels. And the earth gave birth to Man. And the fire gave birth to the Djinn, creatures condemned to dwell in the void between the worlds. One who wakes a Djinn will be given three wishes. Upon the granting of the third, the unholy legions of the Djinn will be freed to rule the earth. Fear one thing in all there is… FEAR THE DJINN.
