Lin Shaye in The Final Wish

If you’re read much folklore, you’ll be aware that the granting of wishes often comes with a price attached. When Aaron (Michael Welch) returns to his family home after the death of his antique collector father, he discovers an item with a sinister past and is surprised at the sudden improvements that seem to take place in his fortunes, but it’s all too quickly evident to viewers that something sinister is afoot. Central to the film, and responsible for much of its emotional impact, is the presence of Lin Shaye as Kate, the mother he has been out of touch with for some years. Ever since her unforgettable turn in Insidious in 2010, Lin has been adored by horror fans, but her involvement with the genre goes back decades before that and she has a great deal of other impressive work to her name,

Lin Shaye Terrifies in Exclusive The Final Wish Clip

Daniel Kurland Jan 14, 2019

Horror icon Lin Shaye stars in a new horror film from the creator of Final Destination, and we’ve got an exclusive look!

It’s always exciting when a horror film can think up a truly unique premise to draw its scares from—though we just as easily love when reliable staples from the genre are reconfigured to popular (and often gruesome) delight. Yet the ideal situation is when the best of both worlds can blend like so much blood and terror, and an old fashioned idea can be spun off in a radically new and exciting direction. That’s exactly what appears to be happening in the upcoming The Final Wish.

The Final Wish taps into that karmic retribution horror that makes the simple monkey's paw archetype still so effective. When Aaron Hammond (Michael Welch) returns home to help his mother (Lin Shaye) after the death of his father,

Review: The Final Wish

  • DailyDead
Grief is front and center in Timothy Woodward Jr.’s The Final Wish, a cautionary tale about the dangers of wish fulfillment centered around a struggling lawyer named Aaron (Michael Welch) who just wants to do right by everyone. And because this is a horror movie we’re talking about here, wanting good things for those you love often can come with a hefty price tag attached. Aaron quickly realizes that you often need bad to balance out the good in life, and his good deeds result in some devastating outcomes, proving that even good intentions can go horribly awry.

When we’re introduced to Aaron in The Final Wish, he’s just been rejected during another job interview, he no longer has a place to live because he hasn’t been able to pay his rent, and a call from Lisa (Melissa Bolona), a former flame who informs him

Celluloid Screams 2017: ‘M.F.A.’ Review

Stars: Francesca Eastwood, Clifton Collins Jr., Leah McKendrick, Peter Vack, Michael Welch, Andrew Caldwell, David Sullivan, Mike C. Manning, Adam Lazarre-White | Written by Leah McKendrick | Directed by Natalia Leite

Every now and then a movie comes along that challenges the socially accepted. Films that take actual real life situations that are being completely ignored or brushed under a rug and shines a light on it. These films must always be done with the utmost respect or not only do you lose the audience but you also miss the point completely – which in this case, could easily be a concern going into this, especially considering its billed as a revenge flick.

M.F.A is a movie that shines that light on the ever growing campus sexual assault problem and not only lifts the rug but gives us a powerful stirring unflinching look at very very current issue at hand. Who

Lloyd Lee Michael Welch Jr. pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree felony murder when he appeared in court in Bedford County, Virginia, the Washington Post reports — partially resolving a decades-old case with a long grip on the community.

Despite Welch’s plea, key questions about what happened and by whom remain unanswered. Prosecutors have said that Katherine Lyon, 10, and 12-year-old Sheila Lyon were abducted in Maryland in March 1975 and then killed,

Stars: Francesca Eastwood, Clifton Collins Jr., Leah McKendrick, Peter Vack, Michael Welch, Andrew Caldwell, David Sullivan, Mike C. Manning, Adam Lazarre-White | Written by Leah McKendrick | Directed by Natalia Leite

Noelle is a shy and inhibited university student, reservedly working through a fine arts degree without much notice. In an effort to come out of her shell, she attends a party with a classmate-turned-crush where she becomes the victim of a brutal assault when he violently rapes her. Noelle tries to report the assault, but through a insidious web of victim-blaming, lack of resources, and general campus-wide rape culture, she receives no help as it becomes clear that the institution doesn’t care. She turns to a support group made up of other survivors who deal in safety measures and talking through trauma, rather than what Noelle is ultimately after: retribution. She gains access to information that lets her track down
