The Djinn follows a mute, young boy. He unleashes a sinister monster after he makes a wish to fulfill his greatest desire: to have a voice. Now he’s trapped in a small apartment with nowhere to hide. And he must find a way to survive until the stroke of midnight or pay the ultimate price.

Arianna Bocco, President of IFC Films said: “David Charbonier and Justin Powell have wasted no time in making their mark in the genre film community, bringing a potent intensity to screens with the debut of two features within a year. We are beyond excited to unleash their bold and layered vision to audiences with The Djinn and have them join IFC Midnight’s proud history of emerging talent.”

Directors David Charbonier and Justin Powell added: “It is an honor to work with IFC Midnight on The Djinn. We made this story to test what we could do with limited resources. But as we developed the film it became something very special to us. We look forward to sharing the movie with audiences nationwide and collaborating with our great distribution partner!

Ryan Scaringe produced with Carter Armstrong and Meghan Weinstein. Jilbert Daniel serves as executive producer. Once again for the cheap seats, IFC Midnight will unleash the new evil genie flick The Djinn into theaters, and on VOD on May 14th.
