Variety Shreds Tobe Hooper’s Haunter ‘Djinn’

Variety has shared one of the first ever reviews for Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Poltergeist director Tobe Hooper’s Djinn, which has been in a state of flux for quite some time now.

In their extremely negative review, they say that “Hooper’s cheesy, ham-fisted ghost story is marred by unimaginative f/x and leaden dialogue.

They also explain that “this limp attempt at local horror takes elements from Rosemary’s Baby, The Grudge and others, thrown together into a cheesy…ghost story about an Emirati couple moving back from the States and tormented by a vengeful wraith.

It gets worse. “Hooper’s lack of engagement isn’t helped by unimaginative f/x and leaden dialogue,” they add.

Brutal. I was really hoping for a Hooper resurrection with this, especially considering the trailer (below) is pretty cool.
