Film Review - The Djinn

THE DJINN Still 1

“The Djinn” isn’t trying to be a radically different horror movie. Writer/directors David Charbonier and Justin Powell (who have another picture, “The Boy Behind the Door,” due for release this summer) don’t have the filmmaking resources to mount a menacing, epic tale of a child trying to survive the night with an evil force unleashed in his apartment. The helmers keep things small and intimate with their endeavor, out to generate some scary scenes and find some psychological grooves to explore, hoping to add some significance to what would otherwise be a standard offering of close quarters frights. “The Djinn” is at its best with scenes of silent stalking and offerings of black magic, remaining an endeavor best appreciated by genre fans who enjoy the essentials in terror mixed with a little emotional agony.
