For the sequel to the home-video hit Wishmaster, composer David Williams takes on the mystical legend of the Djinn (i.e. Genie) with a taut and suspenseful underscore. In Wishmaster 2: Evil Never Dies, the Djinn (Andrew Divoff) is released from his gem-prison by a thief, and this time he has a mission: collect 1001 souls and connect his world with ours. Or something like that. Williams has a nice mystical motif that makes an appearance in "The Robbery", and is sprinkled throughout the score. For the most part, the score is purely background music, providing just the right level of material to keep us interested in the film. There's even a quasi-romantic theme ("Kiss", "End of Djinn") amidst all the destruction and mayhem that the Djinn wreaks. Williams certainly has the ability to provide interesting underscores, as heard in The Prophecy, Phantoms and Supernova, but until he breaks out of the horror genre, his true talent might be locked away, just like the Djinn.
