'Wishbaby brings street into British horror... a fun roller coaster ride with a great cast... Sex, Voodoo and an awesome soundtrack'- GOREZONE MAGAZINE
'What an achievement! Wishbaby is a powerful cautionary tale and a traditionally spooky, absolutely intimidating and frightening tale told with prime sensitivity towards the truly weird! This film has got to be accorded wider distribution!' - ROBERT M PRICE, Editor of LOVECRAFTIAN FICTION.
