The Final Wish

Seen the Final Destination franchise? The Final Wish is by the same creator that comes with a new twisted tale of death.

As they sift through the dad’s belongings, they come across an urn (of course, they do…) that appears much more than it seems. Because of the urn, Aaron seems to think his wishes and prayers are being granted – but soon realises that it is soul bounding, and whatever it is… gets stronger with every wish.

Starring: Lin Shaye, Michael Welch, Melissa Bolona
Genre: Horror (PG15)

However, her one request is that Isabel come to New York to deliver the presentation in person – a city that the philanthropist has avoided for over two decades. However, she agrees – only to come face to face with her past.
