Broad Green Pictures has dropped a new trailer for Wish Upon, the upcoming horror film from Annabelle helmer John R. Leonetti.

The premise tells of 17-year-old girl Claire (The Conjuring‘s Joey King), whose life takes quite the turn when her father (Ryan Phillippe) brings home an old music box that grants its owner seven wishes.

It may be a familiar ‘be careful what you wish for’ type of premise, but there could be a strong dose of thrills on offer. The premise certainly allows for plenty of brutal, Final Destination-style carnage, some of which are shown off in the trailer below. Damn those sink garbage disposals.

Wish Upon, also starring Ki Hong Lee, Mitchell Slaggert, Shannon Purser, Sydney Park, Kevin Hanchard and Sherilyn Fenn, hits US cinemas on July 14.

Synopsis for Wish Upon:

Twelve years after discovering her mother’s suicide, 17-year-old CLARE SHANNON (Joey King) is bullied in high school, embarrassed by her manic, hoarder father JONATHAN (Ryan Phillippe) and ignored by her longtime crush. All that changes when her father comes home with an old music box whose inscription promises to grant its owner seven wishes.

While Clare is initially skeptical of this magic box, she can’t help but be seduced by its dark powers, and is thrilled as her life radically improves with each wish. Clare finally has the life she’s always wanted and everything seems perfect – until the people closest to her begin dying in violent and elaborate ways after each wish. Clare realizes that she must get rid of the box, but finds herself unable and unwilling to part with her new-and-improved life – leading her down a dark and dangerous path.

Be careful what you wish for…
