Not all actors are believable acting scared, but she can pull it off. Now she’s back in the horror genre with Wish Upon, which reunites her with The Conjuring‘s cinematographer, John R. Leonetti, who directed that film’s hit spinoff, Annabelle.
Below, watch the Wish Upon trailer.

The film also stars Bruce Willis and Ryan Phillippe, both of whom look like they’re dragged down into the suck right alongside Mr. Jackson. See how much you can take, after the break. Read More »
