I wouldn't go so far as to say awful, but they certainly are a huge step down, mostly due to....

It felt like a serious threat in the first film, the makeup/costume looked like the WM could be real. The sequels just scream "guy in rubber suit". Not sure how much this has to do with KNB doing the effects for the first film, but it's hard to take as seriously as the first. The series is all fun though, even though it nevers gets as good as the first.

There's nothing stopping Lionsgate from delivering all of 'em. I wouldn't sweat it.

Do we know for sure if Lionsgate has the rights to the Wishmaster titles?

Absolutely, as part of the Artisan acquisition. Listed on Lionsgate's website and everything.

Yes, I think Lionsgate has perpetuity rights to the Wishmaster franchise via Live Entertainment through Artisan.

Unfortunately, I don't think that website lists the complete Lionsgate film library. It also includes some titles (Incredible Melting Man, An American Werewolf in London, Amityville II, to name a few) for which Lionsgate does not have DVD / Blu-Ray distribution rights.

why is it with horror that feel the need to have box set of sub par movies... for no real reason other than they feel like having all the terrible movies of a terrible franchise is somehow impressive?

also, did the first one even come out in the theatre? I'd swear it was dtv to start... just remember catching it on ppv one day but could not recall every seeing a commercial on tv

It had a wide theatrical release and grossed in excess of $15 million.

Well, a large part of most people's collection IS Horror. It's easily the most popular genre of films. And what's the big deal? So what if people want box sets and releases of every title there is out there? Isn't that the whole point of collecting? If you don't like a particular relelease then no one is forcing you to buy it. Just move on to the next one...

It at least made its budget back. Written by Peter Atkins, would love to see a Hellraiser/Pinhead vs Wishmaster movie.

Wishmaster 1 & 2 are both day one buys for me. There was a pretty significant decline in quality in parts 3 & 4 as well as no Andrew Divoff. He is the Djinn, and a big part of what made the first two movies late 90's horror staples.

I wouldn't mind having parts 1 and 2 provided they aren't being sold for $20 a pop.

I don't know if I would say that any of the Wishmaster movies is "good", but the first two have Andrew Divoff, who is pretty great. The first one has to establish the rules, but the second one is able to be a lot more gonzo with the idea. If you want it to be scary, you probably won't enjoy the second one, but it's a fun bad movie. The third one was just bad-bad, and I don't think I watched the fourth one. I only saw it recently, on cable, and it was kind of refreshing, because most of the DTV/DT-cable horror movies these days are bloody and gory torture/chase movies.

I kind of feel like you know if you're someone who wants Wishmaster 1 and 2 or not. Search your feelings. Use the force.

Wishmaster seems like one of those movies that would be ripe for a 5th entry or a reboot. Lionsgate seriously needs to consider giving Andrew Divoff a call and get the ball rolling on another Wishmaster movie. It couldn't be much worse than most of the horror movies released these days. I'm pretty confident in that as long as the budget isn't on par with one of Syfy's Saturday night premieres.

If it's true, I'm in! Also would like a box set. I'm a sucker for bad horror sequels.

I get people want to collect. I love horror. but this typical of terrible 90s horror, in that's not scary. there is no tension or dread, it's just a villain they can try and build a mediocre franchise around.

it really shocks me that this released theatrically because the ending feels like something you'd find in a lame made-for-tv movie. there are no real actors that you could sell the movie on. (divoff does doe a serviceable job, but nothing spectacular)

i want my collection to be, you know, good.

I think it excited a lot of horror fans because the movie is full of cameos by horror stars. So many that it's practically an Expendables for horror fans. Looking back, I find that more charming as a long time horror fan than whether it has any big star to sell itself on.

I'd argue a collection with only popular mainstream films is anything but good. At best it's average or down right mundane. I feel like after a certain point a person needs to expand their collection into b movies or at least films off the beaten path. If I had a collection of 200 to 300 films, Wishmaster would not be a priority, but seeing as how horror is my favorite genre, it's stuff like this (and basically everything code red releases) that make a collection interesting.
