Reviews
  • Bloody-disgusting.com: There’s not an ounce of fat here, just a streamlined story packed with intensity and scares. Charbonier and Powell spin gold out of hay, weaving a chilling fairy tale that keeps you engaged throughout.
  • Filmthreat.com: Scary and harrowing with a shocking and impactful ending. The acting is perfect, and the visuals are a masterclass in creating tension.
  • Flickeringmyth.com: Excels where it matters most; thrills, scares, and an empathetic, resourceful lead that fights back just as much as he flights.
  • Blu-ray.com: there’s some heaviness to the second half of the picture, which eventually gets around to real-world trauma, examining the root of Dylan’s torment.
  • Culturecrypt.com: Diverges from routine and one-ups its big studio brethren with an unexpected epilogue.  I’m all for heart-rending horror that dares to eschew happy endings and “The Djinn” delivers a ripper that’s damn near diabolical in its implication.
  • Eyeforfilm.co.uk: The camerawork framing this is brilliantly handled. Dewey is an excellent choice of lead, needing nothing so crude as dialogue in order to express himself and invite the viewer into his world.
  • UKfilmreview.co.uk: Plenty of tense moments and creepy images punctuate the heartbreaking, age-old cautionary tale about getting what you wish for.
  • Voicesfromthebalcony.com: Keeps the audience on edge and off guard for most of the film. And that includes an ending that I certainly wasn’t expecting,
