This indie horror movie isn't just a lesson on the price of getting what you wish for; it's also an 82-minute class on how to make an unnerving film on the cheap.

Charbonier and Powell know how to brew atmosphere and empathy, creating child characters who feel fleshed out and not like precocious poppets to be pitied or fawned over.

The Djinn is often as plodding as it is impersonal. This movie crawls whenever it needs to sprint.

I cannot say The Djinn did much for me.

With their debut, Charbonier and Powell proved a rare grasp of childhood horror, and keeping the perspective of youth among adult sins.
