Wishmaster 2: Evil Never Dies (1999, dir. Jack Sholder)

Now, I don’t know if you’re familiar with the Wishmaster films. If not, you’ll be pleased to hear they embrace a winning combination of feel-good comedy and nauseating, troubling violence. The Wishmaster is a demon who takes human form and grants wishes to idiots. Except he makes their wishes go BAD and then steals their souls. Tough break. There’s a particularly enjoyable scene in Wishmaster 2 when a convict says he wishes his lawyer “would go fuck himself.” Guess what happens! In the video embedded below, a kindly old lady at a casino wishes for “a shit-load of money.” Guess what happens!
