entertaining Malaysian possession horror
2 October 2017 | by re-animatresseSee all my reviews

did you know that jinn, anglicised as 'genies', feature prominently in the Quran and Islamic theology? corporeal or spiritual entities created from fire and endowed with free will, the evil ones, sometimes distinguished as 'shaytan-jinn', bear a resemblance to the demons of Christian lore

i found this film in one of IMDb's 'people who liked this also liked...' lists and was intrigued by the prospect of watching a possession story told from an Islamic perspective rather than a Christian one, which are a dime a dozen in US cinema; i found that the two theologies are more alike than different, at least inasmuch as a viewer needs to understand of them to appreciate a good possession horror, sharing beliefs in a One True God, the devil, depicted in hircine fashion, and demons (or in this film, jinn). it recalls The Sixth Sense at points, though not quite as compelling story-wise, begins to drag a bit slowly for my liking around the middle, but overall didn't disappoint. i liked the soundtrack and definitely want to watch this again someday
