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.

Truly strange and Demonic!
19 July 2008 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

Semum was a film that's based upon a true story.

If you watch it,definitely you will see Classic horror elements and new wave of Japanese horror styles are mixing in a very strange story! Paranoia and the oriental ambiance has never been captured like this before.

I gave it 9 of 10.Yes It's more of a weird mysteriousness and psychological movie than a run of the mill horror film.

If you want to see a real Turkish horror classic with touch of great movie 'The Exorcist(1973)'...!!!

I recommend it.
