Turkish director Hasan Karacadag is something of an unusual case. In a nation that appears uncertain how to feel about its own history with exploitation film and generally reluctant to embrace genre film - though there are obvious exceptions - Karacadag has jumped headlong into the horror pool. The director first came to attention with the J-horror influenced D@BB, a surprise hit in Turkey that allowed Karacadag to move on to the more visually ambitious - and effects heavy - effort, Semum. Both film showcased Karacadag's growing ability to shock and terrify his audiences by taking the rich folklore of his country and pushing it to its dark extremes. And he's at it again with D@BB: Bir Cin Vakasi. The sequel to his original hit, this latest efforts puts away the Japanese influence in favor of a more Paranormal vibe, but the underlying mythology remains purely regional with the story following a Turkish family whose home is possessed by angry jinns.Written by

First of all,Without a doubt,Dabbe Bir cin vakası(Dabbe:A case of Djinn)is the scariest Turkish horror movie so far.I had almost no expectation from the movie I thought this was a cheap Paranormal Activity rip-off,but I have to admit I was too wrong.After a slow start,paranormal things begin to happen a family which resides in their home.Sleep walking and magic and djinn relations indicated by the director quite bizarre.The last ten minutes gave me sleepless nights and bad dreams.
I don't want to spoil anything but the stories told about the Village Derunce and Baby Djinn extremely creepy.I highly recommend this if you are horror fan.Believe me ıf you see this at night,it will stay you a couple of days
