The movie itself is so convinced by its own awesomeness that it actually becomes somewhat awesome. It's as though t... read more

Description: In the beginning of the times, God created life into universe: light gave birth to angels, earth to men and fire to djin, creatures condemned to dwell in the void between the worlds. One who wakes a djin shall be given three wishes. Upon granting the third, an unholy legion of djins are freed through a doorway between the worlds upon the Earth. In 1127 A.D., in Persia, a sorcerer lures and traps a powerful Djinn in the stone of secret fire.

Movie Reviews (1701-1750) (50 movies items)

" A great premise: "what if you find a genie in a bottle and you are granted a wish only that this genie twists on anything you say so that he can kill off as many cast members as possible". Andrew Divoff's deep bass voice heighten the film even when he is drowned in heavy make-up and the film has numerous fun deaths by horror favorites - best moment is seeing Ted Raimi crushed by a crate. Annoying "reset button" ending ruin the film and all the fun that has happened up to that point and I don't "
