The cautionary advice of “be careful what you wish for” has been the center of endless tales of horror. Every now and then, it gets a rather literal depiction, which is exactly what Wish Upon looks to be bringing to the table this summer.
Joey King stars in the horror thriller about a bullied teenage girl named Clare who is given an ornate music box that somehow grants her seven wishes. A new trailer shows us what happens when she wishes that the girl responsible for making her life a living hell in high school would “just go rot,” but we already saw that in the original trailer. What’s new is a bit of background on the box which shows that it has quite the history of ruining the lives of those who had it in their possession.

Leonetti, who directed that film’s hit spinoff, Annabelle.
Below, watch the Wish Upon trailer.
