Storyline

Director Hasan Karacadag argues that he tried to create a model of a Turkish-Islamic horror film and that he would make the world recognize this model, of which he sees "Semum" as the first example. "Semum" stars Ayça inci, Burak Hakki and Cem Kurtoglu in the lead roles and recounts the true story of a woman who lives in Izmir. "Semum" will be compared with "The Exorcist" and inci will be compared with Linda Blair, the director says, noting that the Turkish horror films made so far have been far from satisfactory.

Above average horror!
19 July 2008 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

Ooo Exorcism of a 'Muslim girl!'.Many of peoples liked second half of the film,but I liked first half too much.Because the first half was very interesting editing,shocking moments and contained a suspenseful psychological thriller points.

I love it when a movie surprises me and Semum has a really good twist.The movie was well written and well directed.The big problem is all CGI and some shots of the creature.

I recommend this film to every fan of thrillers and suspense but don't forget this is about exorcism of a Muslim woman!And This isn't as good as "the exorcist" but it is very good and very fresh exorcism movie.
