Who does not love a good horror movie? I know that I would not feel alive if I was not able to watch a one or two a week, but does that make a person different? It is normal for me and several of my friends that enjoy the genre, but at our ages, we are able to control what goes on in our minds and know what is real and what is not. There is never a problem with getting lost while watching a movie, but needing to be able to come back as the same person when it ends, that is the problem.
Mary is still in high school and although not loving it, she has been able to keep her core friends at her side, always. Even though she is not one of the most popular kids in the school, she is known by everyone and will even stand up for the outcasts if needed. She is a good egg, but there is something that her friends do not know about her…she has an over active imagination that leads to bouts of dangerous sleep walking.
Mary’s parents have done everything within their power to get the sleep walking under control, but Mary being a teenager will fight them at every turn. Trying to get her some additional help, they implore the school counselor Mr. Campbell to talk to her about what is going on, but Mary knows what he is up to and will not be forced to do anything she does not want to do. Getting invited by her friends to see a new horror movie that is in town, Mary tells her parents, but they do not agree with the decision since it appears scary movies seem to be a factor in her sleep walking.
Mary goes anyway and wishes that her father would no longer be around, little does she know that the movie she is about to go see has the same idea. "The Wisher" has caused problems with the youth of the country since its release, but will not be pulled from theaters for any reason. Mary and her friends watch the film, but Mary has to leave before the end due to being sick. Being taken home for the evening, she finds out her father’s was in an accident and he is dead. Not understanding what has happened, Mary makes more wishes and somehow, they keep coming true…in the worst way.
Spliced (also known as The Wisher) is the story of high school student Mary as she is getting fed up with being told what to do. Going out to see a movie with her friends, "The Wisher", this mysterious film has put a spell on her and Mary is marked with receiving everything she wishes for. Although they might not be real wishes, just figures of speech, they all start coming true and people are losing their lives around her. Once her friends start to be targeted, she has to find out who the Wisher really is to save them from what she is saying, not wishing.
Now this is movie that I enjoyed from the opening scene and let me tell you why. With my love for horror movies, I have always thought that it would be a great idea to have some ones horror wishes come true. Now, honestly, I would not have thought about having wishes being taken to the extreme as they are taken in this movie, but it is just dark enough to enjoy that much more. A good movie to watch for a horror fan, just to try and figure out how each wish will be interpreted by The Wisher. Stay Scared.
