‘The Djinn’ Conjures Up a Blu-ray and DVD Release

After a limited theatrical run and VOD release, RLJE Films is conjuring The Djinn for Blu-ray and DVD on January 4, 2022, Bloody Disgusting learned.

The Boy Behind the Door filmmakers David Charbonier and Justin Powell wrote and directed the film, which Meagan Navarro reviewed, writing that it “scares with a suspenseful fairy tale nightmare.”

She adds: “The newest entry in evil djinn horror plays like a bedtime story that harkens back to Grimm origins, in the sense that true, bloody horrors await young boys and girls that don’t heed the rules.”

Meagan also spotlighted the indie film this past June.

“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 trapped in his new home with nowhere to hide, Dylan must find a way to survive until the stroke of midnight or pay the ultimate price.”
