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.

real experience for discover eastern horror!
7 March 2008 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

I think,If you've seen the trailer of that haunting thriller before watching the movie you'll know what your going to get – suspenseful, claustrophobic horror, when creepy things happen to a young woman after possession by an unnamed creature! The story of movie is contain very different kind of darkness and terror.Direction and camera angles was perfect! Lead actress Ayca Inci show her best performances for metamorphosis scenes.I recommend to everyone especially who wants to know about deep mystical mean of Islamic genesis and secrets of human's Creation.And if you wonder the mean of real devil,just watch this,and keep hear the talks of Semum!
