By George Bate & Josh Bate

What You Wish For interview

What You Wish For, the anticipated sophomore effort from The Perfect Host writer/director Nicholas Tomnay, was one of the surprise highlights of this year’s genre festival Fantastic Fest. The new film is a twisty psychological thriller that follows a down-on-his-luck chef named Ryan (played by Terminator 3‘s Nick Stahl). Ryan has fled to Latin America to escape mounting debt and, while abroad, is inadvertently introduced into the dangerous world of cooking for the über-rich.

What You Wish For recently screened at Austin’s Fantastic Fest and the UK’s FrightFest and will soon premiere at LA’s Screamfest this month.
