When our own Heather Wixson spoke with Wish Upon director John R. Leonetti, he mentioned that a more extreme version of the PG-13 film would be released on home media. If you were excited about the announcement, then your wish is about to come true, because Broad Green Pictures has now announced an October 10th home media release of the supernatural horror film (read Heather's review here), including a Director's Unrated Cut with all-new footage not seen in theaters:
