‘The Djinn’ Trailer Dares You to Make a Wish

by Trey Hilburn III

There have been some really great films made over the years that involve Djinn. Maybe one of the most known of these is the very mixed bag of Wishmaster films. Now, IFC Midnight is here to introduce you to a new more insidious sort of Djinn. This one, has far less witty one-liners and instead is completely made out of the stuff that keeps you up at night.

The synopsis for The Djinn goes like this:

The story follows a mute twelve-year-old, Dylan Jacobs, as he discovers a mysterious book of spells inside his new apartment. Grieving the loss of his mother, and feeling isolated from everyone except for his father, Dylan performs a ritual that promises to deliver his heart’s desire: to have a voice. But he soon discovers that every gift has a toll when a sinister djinn arrives to collect his soul. Now trapped in his new home with nowhere to hide, Dylan must find a way to survive until the stroke of midnight or pay the ultimate price.

The Djinn releases in select theaters and VOD beginning May 14.
