Family experiences tragic event. Surviving, adolescent member of the family finds a possessed object he's not supposed to. The friends, family and/or the kids who bully the person at school are subsequently killed off, until the main character manages to destroy or subdue the aforementioned possessed object. The main character is possessed himself, with varying results.
Most teen horror flicks today tend to utilize a variety (if not all) of these ingredients with a healthy dose of social media drama thrown in. Their only truly inventive aspects, at this point, are the ways in which characters are killed off. Wish Upon is no exception; if the film’s goal was to execute this tired but profitable formula, while reaffirming the general public’s belief that teenage girls are the worst, it does so admirably.
