Joey King Explains Why 'Wish Upon' Isn't Your 'Typical Horror Movie'

Joey King Explains Why 'Wish Upon' Isn't Your 'Typical Horror Movie'

Joey King is spilling on her new movie Wish Upon!

The actress looked pretty in plaid while attending a special fan screening of the film on on Monday (July 10) at AMC Empire 42nd Street in New York City.

She snapped this fun pic with her co-star Mitchell Slaggert.

They were also joined by their other co-star Ryan Phillippe.

Wish Upon tells the story of a teenage girl who discovers a box that carries magic powers and a deadly price for using them.

“It’s such a good story,” Joey told ComingSoon.net. “I like to call it more of a psychological thriller than a total horror movie. I think it’s very layered and it’s very emotional and you get really attached to the characters, more than you do in a typical horror movie.”

Find out what Joey and Ryan‘s favorite thing to do between takes was below, and don’t miss Wish Upon when it hits theaters on July 14!

FYI: Mitchell is wearing Frame jeans.
