Wishmaster 4: The Prophecy Fulfilled is the 2002 sequel to the Wishmaster (film) series.
Painter Sam (Jason Thompson
) and his girlfriend Lisa (Tara Spencer-Nairn
) have just moved into their new home when he experiences a terrible accident that leaves him crippled for life. Determined to help him, Lisa invokes the help of lawyer friend Steven (Michael Trucco
) who has a crush on Lisa.
Therefore, he takes a lawsuit against the company that made the faulty wiring on the bike which crashed and left him paralyzed. Instead of offering to take money, he declines, and gives her a red jewel he found in a box hidden away in his desk. The jewel, unknown to Steven, is the cell for the evil Djinn, which awakens and inhabits his body. Now under the Wishmaster's control, Steven begins making advances on Lisa, who is becoming increasingly distraught since Sam won't touch her anymore.
She inadvertently casts three wishes while around Steven/Djinn, and the first two he grants, but the third is the hardest one, for Lisa to love Steven as he really is. Aware that his Djinn appearance will lose her forever, and becoming aware of his love for her, he refuses to grant it, though his other Djinn cohorts constantly beg him to grant the third wish and let their race inherit the earth.
In the end, he agrees to offer Lisa a choice; take his hand as the second in command when the Djinn race takes over the world, or to be cast down to another dimension of hell. Struggling to make a decision, Sam arrives and manages to save the day, but also perishes. Lisa makes it out of the house and continues on with her life.
Wishmaster 4 was filmed back to back with its predecessor Wishmaster 3: Beyond the Gates of Hell
with only a weekend separating the two. Both films were shot in Winnipeg
. In a scene where the Djinn shows Lisa an illusion of paradise, they are standing on a pond in Assiniboine Park
, a famous locale for the city. The Assiniboine Park Pavilion can be seen just above the tree line in the background of the scene.
