Trivia

When Morgana is doing research on Persian Mythology the authors of the texts that she is looking into are Semore Love (See more love) on the first entry, and the 6th entry is written by Amanda Huggenkiss (A man to hug and kiss). The third entry (Wendy Derlath/Deriath) may be in reference to the folklore professor from the first movie. Scott H. Campbell(4th entry) and Guerin T. Hollingsworth(7th entry) are listed as working on the movie. See more »

A Solid Sequel, True to the Original
24 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Djinn breaks free of his prison inside the Ahura Mazda statue during a burglary resulting in a shoot-out. He confesses to the burglary and murder, despite obviously being innocent. Why? Because inside the prison walls, plenty of men have desires just waiting to be fulfilled...

This film picks up exactly where the first left off, with Andrew Divoff reprising his role as the Djinn. The gore effects seem slightly nastier here, at times appearing almost like something from a Cronenberg film.

It was written and directed by Jack Sholder, probably best known for directing "A Nightmare on Elm Street 2" in 1985 (14 years prior). I hate to say it, but in many ways this film exceeds Robert Kurtzman's original vision.

Of course, some liberties are taken with when the Djinn can use his powers, but I suppose that is not new. And after Andrew Divoff left the series, I don't even know why they kept making sequels.
