In the beginning of the times, God created life into universe: light gave birth to angels, earth to men and fire to djin, creatures condemned to dwell in the void between the worlds. One who wakes a djin shall be given three wishes. Upon granting the third, an unholy legion of djins are freed through a doorway between the worlds upon the Earth. In 1127 A.D., in Persia, a sorcerer lures and traps a powerful Djinn in the stone of secret fire. In the present days, a drunken crane operator drops the valuable statue of Ahura Mazda over the assistant of Raymond Beaumont on the harbor, and one worker finds the huge and priceless opal red stone where Djin is seized. Alexandra Amberson, who works in an auction house, receives the stone for evaluation and accidentally awakes Djin. The evil creature is released later, charges the stone with people souls and feeds with their fears, while chasing Alexandra to force to make three wishes and unleash the demoniac fiends upon Earth.

Many instances of the film pay homage to the series The Twilight Zone, the characters name Beaumont (Charles Beaumont was a frequent writer of the show), the Djinn's line "going my way" when he stops Alexandra in the car is a reference to the episode "The Hitch-Hiker" where a mysterious man continually plagues a female driver with the line "I believe you're going, my way" and the scene with the shop assistant wishing for eternal beauty is transformed into a mannequin echoes the episode "The After Hours" where a female shopper is revealed to be one of the stores mannequins made human.

Once, in a time before time, God breathed life into the universe. And the light gave birth to Angels. And the earth gave birth to Man. And the fire gave birth to the Djinn, creatures condemned to dwell in the void between the worlds. One who wakes a Djinn will be given three wishes. Upon the granting of the third, the unholy legions of the Djinn will be freed to rule the earth. Fear one thing in all there is... FEAR THE DJINN.

Not an awesome flick, but entertaining nonetheless
Saw this last night and I had a great time watching it. Reading all the other comments and seeing that the main opinion is that the movie sucks, I have to disagree. A reasonable watch, entertaining with a pretty cool ending.
A thing that did bother me was the actor who played the 'human-suit' Djinn: he acted a little over the top...the evil smiles (and evil they were :) got somewhat irritating after a while.
One of the best parts in the movie is where the Djinn is sitting in the office of the manager of that jewellery company and the manager says he wants a million bucks. I'm not gonna spoil what happens next, but I think it's one of the most original parts I've seen in a horror movie. I almost rolled on the floor laughing (evil :) Another pretty cool part is the part where the Djinn fulfills the wish of that really pretty female clothing-shop employee. I cracked up. :)
Another plus is that we see an evil Djinn instead of the friendly 'Genie'. It was a very nice twist.
All-in-all, a good watch and to fill some time, it's great.
