Watch the Origin Story for the Killer Music Box at the Center of Wish Upon

The answers these kids are looking for are in this post. Image: Broad Green

The upcoming horror movie Wish Upon has a very cool premise. It’s about a young woman who is gifted an old music box only to find out that the box grants wishes. This is great until the people around her start dying horrible deaths.

Is having your wildest dreams come true worth losing everyone you know and love? No, it’s not, and that’s what the film, which opens July 14, will explore. One thing it won’t explore, though, is where this mysterious box came from. It’s a story that could probably be a whole other movie, but instead, it’ll be told online with a series of motion comics. We’re excited to debut the first chapter.

What happens next? You’ll have to wait for chapter two to find out.

Wish Upon, directed by John R. Leonetti, stars Joey King and Ryan Phillippe. It opens July 14.
