Contain both the original WISHMASTER and its direct-to-video sequel. See individual titles for details.
WISHMASTER: After inadvertently freeing an evil Djinn from his gemstone prison, an auction house gemologist fights to bring his rampages to an end, as they include stealing the souls of the hapless humans whose wishes bring them to ironic early ends. Heavy on the computer-assisted effects, with some mitigating touches, such as Ted Raimi in a cameo and Englund as a stodgy art collector. Craven acted as Executive Producer, but later removed his name.
WISHMASTER 2: Evil has been summoned once again when the evil Djinn is awakened by a burglar named Morgana (Fields) during a botched art heist. When the Djinn takes blame for the crime, he's sent to prison where he grants wishes to prisoners in return for their souls, to ultimately structure an army to obliterate all humanity. It's up to Morgana to save the human race.
