Today, producers have released two scary new clips from the film! Check them out below the trailer and synopsis.
The story follows a mute twelve-year-old, Dylan Jacobs, as he discovers a mysterious book of spells inside his new apartment. Grieving the loss of his mother, and feeling isolated from everyone except for his father, Dylan performs a ritual that promises to deliver his heart’s desire: to have a voice. But he soon discovers that every gift has a toll when a sinister djinn arrives to collect his soul. Now he is trapped in his new home with nowhere to hide. So Dylan must find a way to survive until the stroke of midnight or pay the ultimate price.
The Djinn is written and directed by David Charbonier and Justin Powell; the film stars Ezra Dewey and Rob Brownstein.
