The entire production behind Tobe Hooper’s Djinn is out of the ordinary, so much so that I figured we’d never actually see it go behind cameras. It looks like this one is officially a “go” as the National has the first ever behind-the-scenes images and set report that gives us the first ever plot details:
“The film is set in 2015 and follows the story of Khaled and Salama, a couple who return home from America to discover their apartment in a luxury high-rise, built on the site of the deserted fishing village, is also home to malevolent beings,” they explain of the story line that sounds a bit like a multi-being Paranormal Activity.
Much like most ghost stories, “There is not that much blood,” said Daniela Tully, the film’s German producer. “It is more of a supernatural horror rather than a thriller or slasher horror. It is a tale told with a lot of respect for the Emirati traditions and it will stay with you for a long time.”
Casting continues, but anyone joining the crew must abide by one strict rule: no one can mention the word “djinn” while on set. The measure has been taken out of respect and because it is thought that speaking their name could conjure one up.
