Worth seeing
5 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Although Jinn doesn't have any big Hollywood actors, it has a lot of familiar faces and is extremely well acted. The special effects and sound are also incredible, given that it is low budget. Being from Detroit and from the University of Michigan, it has some really cool scenes of some local churches and buildings. The movie is definitely scary but more of a sci-fi and supernatural type of thriller. The plot is a little confusing because there are a lot of flash backs, but in all the flow of the movie is decent. What I liked was the whole concept of the Jinn and therefore I found to movie fairly entertaining. Its definitely worth seeing!
