Wish Upon is about a teenage girl named Clare (The Conjuring’s Joey King), who’s given a magic box that’s able to grant her seven wishes. Of course, as Rumpelstiltskin says on Once Upon a Time, “all magic comes with a price,” which in this case means a shit-ton of teenagers start dying as a result of her wish-making.
The twist here is that Clare is the villain in her own story. She could stop making her wishes anytime, therefore saving everyone she cares about, she just doesn’t want to. She gets addicted to the rush of getting anything she wants, including making another girl literally rot to death for the crime of almost running her over with her car.
