“With the unexpected passing of his father, Aaron (Welch) tries to come to terms with his grief while supporting his devastated mother (Shaye). Sifting through his father’s belongings, Aaron comes upon an urn that is far more than it seems. As his wants and wishes start coming true, Aaron thinks his prayers have been answered until he realizes the price of this good fortune is much more than he bargained for.“
The Final Wish has been garnering raves ever since it hit the festival circuit this year. Luke Y. Thompson of The Nerdist said, “An effective Final Destination twist on ‘The Monkey’s Paw,’” while We Live Entertainment’s Staci Wilson called the movie “a creepy cautionary tale…serves to chill the bones and send a shiver here and there.” And Jimmy O of Arrow in the Head noted The Final Wish builds “a slow-burning sense of dread” and “makes for an engaging thriller.”
This exclusive event is presented by our friends at Cinedigm, who are releasing The Final Wish in theaters January 24. The trailer is below and you can go to the film’s Facebook page here. More exclusive DreadVision screening events coming soon, so watch this space!
