An evil genie is released from his prison – an ancient jewel – and must grant three wishes to the person who awakens him, in order to release the race of Djinns from hell and allow them to take over the earth.

Painter Sam (Jason Thompson) and his girlfriend Lisa (Tara Spencer-Nairn) have just moved in together when he has a terrible accident that leaves him paraplegic. Determined to help him, Lisa retains a lawyer, Steven (Michael Trucco), who has a crush on her. Due to his condition, Sam grows ever more distant from Lisa, ruminating on his and Lisa’s inability to have sex and believing that she and Steven are having an affair.


Sensing Sam’s growing distance from Lisa, Steven moves in, awkwardly offering as a gift a jewel he found hidden away in an antique desk. The jewel, unknown to Steven, is the Djinn’s cell. Lisa inadvertently awakens the Djinn, which secretly kills Steven and takes his form. The Djinn/Steven begins making advances on Lisa to trick her into making wishes…

“The Wishmaster himself looks risible. I’m sure I’ve seen his second cousin on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, except that Buffy’s version looked less silly. However I really like the underlying concept, a cheerful mish-mash of Middle Eastern legend and Biblical myth. This thing calls itself a Djinn (a variant transliteration of “Genie”) and grants the traditional three wishes, but in return it wants your soul. It’s the Devil, basically, but in goofier make-up…” Horror Express


“This is indeed a horror version of a Lifetime movie. The Prophecy Fulfilled is packed to the gills with relationship drama, and now even the Djinn is trying to be romantic. Ignoring the demands of his kind to be unleashed, he sets out on an attempt to understand love so he can woo Lisa and legitimately win her heart.” The Movie Network


“Overlit, filled with gratuitous (and not especially attractive) nudity and thoroughly predictable, this fourth installment in the low-rent Wishmaster series appears designed to be the last. Would that it were so!” TV Guide
