As a horror fan, I liked this movie. the directing of the movie is awesome, But in terms of story line, acting,script, the end..etc there are many points which I think if were taken into consideration, the movie would have been one of the greatest horror movies ever, since the subject is really freaking scary for everyone living in this area, it is a mix between ghosts and exorcism. Points that am talking about are for instance, the early exposure of Um Dwais, abstract and tasteless reflection of Islamic rituals on story line , and this thing in particular if it was properly implemented within the story, it would have been more scary. especially that this movie is performed by mainly Arab Muslims, in an Arab Muslim land, where they have good access to the resources and they should know more about the Arabic/Islamic culture ( movie shows the ghost side of Djinn, and neglects the exorcism ). I agree with previous critic about the absence of chemistry between the actors, especially Salama family.
in general, there is great suspense all along the movie, it is worth watching, I think it is even much better than many other famous ghost movies from Hollywood.
