The genie is out of the bottle in this first trailer for JINN

2 min read


I’ve seen plenty of movie monsters in my time. Godzilla, the Blob, Xenomorphs and Danny Devito to name a few. But one of the rarest monsters out there, that have almost no impact on the horror genre? Jinn, or more commonly known as genies. Ancient spirits as old as time itself, with power that makes Freddy Krueger look like an infant in comparison.

And they want this world back.

In the beginning, three were created. Man made of clay. Angels made of light. And a third made of fire. For centuries, stories of angels and men have captured the imagination and been etched into history crossing all boundaries of culture, religion and time. These two races have dominated the landscape of modern mythology, shrouding the evidence that a third was ever created. This third race, born of smokeless fire, was named the jinn. Modern man has all but forgotten this third race ever existed. It is time for him to remember.

Man, I can get behind this easily enough. I’m digging that Darth Maul himself, Ray Park, is back in action and adding a little bit of horror to the ass-kicking on screen has me sold. Jinn looks like some slick fun, and really, that’s all I want. The film looks like it can teach recent supernatural box office bombs such as I, Frankensteina  lesson or two, and is out on April 4.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
