WISHMASTER 3: BEYOND THE GATES OF HELL
WISHMASTER III: DEVILSTONE; WISHMASTER 3: SWORD OF JUSTICE
Chris Angels Wishmasters 3 and 4 were the utter dreg ends of the Wishmaster series. Of these, Wishmaster 3 is certainly the worst entry in the whole series. The selling point of the other Wishmaster films was always the novelty ways we would see the djinn turn the wishes around on the wisher. The dazzling makeup effects that director Robert Kurtzmans effects workshop K.N.B. EFX Group provided for the first Wishmaster have been replaced by cheap work from Sota FX that leaves the novelty despatches severely lacking. The wishes themselves are incredibly insipid where the film seems too lazy to even make a nominal effort to tie them to what the wisher wishes Jason Connery desires two women to be in love with him but instead all that happens is that the djinn kills him; a secretary wishes that all her files would go up in flame but instead it is she that does; Louisette Geiss wishes she could hide and so for some reason the Wishmaster squeezes her down into the cage of a white lab rat.
Moreover, the Wishmasters quest is lame he is merely setting out to find who Diana is and has to go on a quest around the campus killing her friends to find her identity. The silliest part about Wishmaster 3 though is almost anything involving the angel Michael who emerges as a left-field plot element, appearing from out of a stained glass window to possess Tobias Mehler and then engages in a wrestling match with the djinn, wielding a sword and throwing around pews. There is an equally arbitrary wrap up of the plot where AJ. Cooks heroine saves the day by jumping from the roof and impaling herself on the angels sword.
Clearly, Andrew Divoff had no interest in coming back to repeat his role and so the Chris Angel Wishmaster films came up with the ingenious solution of having John Novaks djinn steal somebody elses face to wear in each film. In this instance, he becomes Jason Connery. Jason is the son of Sean Connery who peaked in the 1980s playing the second incarnation of tvs Robin of Sherwood (1983-6) but has since faded away to a string of B movie roles.
