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.

The creepiest horror movie ever made:SEMUM
10 February 2008 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

I'm a big horror-movie fanatic and I don't explain why but always I feel shame at our Turkish horror movies.But this one is really different.Director Hasan karacadag simply using eastern based horror themes,Islamic legends,nightmare stories,religion based incubus,demons and especially Holly book Koran based Jinns.These themes are include very new and fresh ideas for horror movie making.Director said that he want to make very new eastern mystical horror films for all around the world.D@bbe was first steps for him an now he made his second feature horror film 'Semum'… Semum is Incredibly Creepy and Haunting horror film.From beginning to ending you can feel paranoia, suspicion,fear of unknown and the eerie touch of demonic jinns.Slow movements of original and creepy atmosphere are very impressive.Some scenes are very dangerous and risky for seek people!The storyline is haunting and the editing is provocative.You can never understand what is going on!...The special effects are very stylish for Turkish animations and CG worlds.I really like the performance of actors and actresses.Improver exorcism scenes are awesome.If you wonder what is the different of eastern horror movie definitely you have to watch Semum!...I think this movie will be legend at all around the world! We will see…
