(a film review by Mark R. Leeper)

THE DJINN is a classic story of a child, Dylan, being stalked by a supernatural creature, with the added twist of the child being both mute and asthmatic. This is caused by the child being home alone at midnight and getting up to mischief with a grimoire. Dylan fights battles his father (seen only at the beginning and the very end) doesn't suspect. Much of it is filmed through a red lens, and the director creates tension by having very limited dialogue. The film produces some genuine shudders.
