All Critics (63) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (55) | Rotten (8)

  • This indie horror movie isn't just a lesson on the price of getting what you wish for; it's also an 82-minute class on how to make an unnerving film on the cheap.

  • Charbonier and Powell know how to brew atmosphere and empathy, creating child characters who feel fleshed out and not like precocious poppets to be pitied or fawned over.

  • The Djinn is often as plodding as it is impersonal. This movie crawls whenever it needs to sprint.

    Nothing very original, but spookily entertaining nonetheless.
