Fearnet Movie Review: 'Jinn'

7 April 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

One cannot let bad movies get in the way of being a horror geek. We struggle through tons of rotten movies (that usually have great promotional artwork) in order to locate the good and occasionally great pieces of genre cinema -- but sometimes a really bad horror flick is nothing short of mystifying. As in: not only is the new indie horror / thriller Jinn an outrageously bad film, but how does something so amateurish make it way into 150 theaters while great indies open in 16 theaters and VOD at the same time?   Money, that's how. The company that bankrolled the SyFy-grade Jinn (and jammed it with bizarre promotions for an automobile) also paid for a semi-wide release. So this is not a case of a distributor risking money on an indie film they really like; it's a bunch of wannabe filmmakers playing pretend. And boy does the result show on the screen. »

Film Review: ‘Jinn’

7 April 2014 9:02 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As an attention-grabbing opening installment for what’s obviously intended as an ongoing horror franchise, “Jinn” fizzles. This ponderously paced, needlessly convoluted and altogether unexceptional thriller will be fortunate to reach beyond a thin sliver of undiscriminating genre fans with its bogus mythos about ancient evil spirits bent on world domination. The promise of a sequel during the closing credits seems, at best, unduly optimistic.

After a less-than-promising prologue in 1901 India, writer-director Ajmal Zaheer Ahmad moves his melodrama to contemporary Ann Arbor, Mich., where Shawn (Dominic Rains), a hunky auto designer, and Jasmine (Serinda Swan of TV’s “Graceland” and “Breakout Kings”), his beautiful wife, are unsettled by manifestations of, if not the supernatural, then extremely clumsy home invaders.

The secret behind the scattering of their furniture is revealed when the designer receives a decades-old message — so old, it’s on a VHS tape, not a DVD or flash drive — from his late father. »

Writer/Director Ajmal Zaheer Ahmad talks Jinn

4 April 2014 5:45 PM, PDT | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

Based on a concept known to half the world, and being unleashed on the big screen for the first time, the new supernatural adventure Jinn releases in theaters nationwide today. Starring Serinda Swan, Ray Park, Faran Tahir, Dominic Rains, and William Atherton, Jinn tells the story of Shawn (Dominic Rains), an automotive designer, who enjoys an idyllic life with his new wife Jasmine (Serinda Swan) until it is interrupted by a cryptic message. The message warns of imminent danger and a curse that has afflicted his family for generations. Having lost his parents as a child, Shawn doesn’t believe this unsettling revelation of his past….until strange things start to happen.

Unable to explain the threats and fearing for his life, Shawn turns to Gabriel (Ray Park) and Father Westhoff (William Atherton), a mysterious duo claiming to have answers. With their help, and the aid of Ali (Faran Tahir), a shackled mental patient, »

Watch: Teaser Clip From Supernatural Horror ‘Jinn’

2 April 2014 12:28 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Ready for its limited release in cinemas this Friday, Exxodus Pictures is tempting us with a clip from supernatural horror, Jinn.

At just under one and a half minutes long, the clip is an exposition scene in which Shawn and Jasmine learn the ominous truth about the jinn – fiery metaphysical creatures with an axe to grind. Throw in a few priests, Biblical references and some very serious faces in the library and you’ve got what looks like typical supernatural fare. But will it be creepy freak-out or mythological mumbo-jumbo?

Jinn is in Us cinemas from 4th April. Ajmal Zaheer Ahmad writes and directs and it stars Ray ParkSerinda Swan, Faran Tahir, Dominic Rains and Walter Phelan.

DVD Review - Escape Plan (2013)

17 March 2014 11:16 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Escape Plan, 2013.

Directed by Mikael Håfström.

Starring Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, 50 Cent, Jim Caviezel, Vinnie Jones, Sam Neill, Faran Tahir, Vincent D’Onofrio, and Amy Ryan.

Synopsis:

When a structural-security authority finds himself set up and incarcerated in the world's most secret and secure prison, he has to use his skills to escape with help from the inside.

Over the last few years both Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger have tried hard to revamp their careers. Stallone has done fairly well with his Expendables franchise and Schwarzenegger had cameos in both films, however on their own neither have found much success. Last year we saw The Last Stand with Schwarzenegger, which was decent, and Bullet to the Head with Stallone, which was not so great, and neither of those fared too well. Despite that, both actors tried once more, this time together in Escape Plan. It's safe to say that »
