It was teased a few months ago that a “big name horror director” would make a wish and bring the latest Djinn feature to theaters.
And that director would be the infamous Tobe Hooper, who’s responsible for such horror classics as The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and Poltergeist. Hooper will get behind the camera for the Arabian haunted house thriller penned by U.S. writer David Tully and backed by Imagenation Abu Dhabi.
“It tells the story of a young Emirati couple who return home from the U.S. and discover that their new apartment in a luxury high-rise built on the site of an abandoned fishing village is also home to malevolent beings known as Djinn.”
Hooper said: “Simply put, this movie will scare everyone, no matter where you live or what you believe in.” After such dumpers as Toolbox Murders and Mortuary, I’m not quite sure I believe him anymore. His last “fun” movie was The Mangler back in 1995. Yeeeeesh.
Shooting scheduled to begin in the United Arab Emirates in March.
