A year after their infant child dies a couple Khalid (eternal) and Salama (peace) returns to United Arab Emirates, against the wishes of the woman, who preferred living in America. They move into a brand new hotel, because the husband works for the company which build it. The hotel was built over the top of a fishing village, said to have wipped out by evil Djinn (genies). The western, Disneyfied version of Djinn are usally comical, and mischievousness not evil. Not so in Arabic mythology. After all according to the Quran, Shaytan (Satan) is a Djinn.
The film is English and Arabic (with English subitles).
Interesting to see a movie based on Arabic legend of the genies. rather than the sanitized westernized versions. These djinn behave like demons or evil ghosts. They are shape sifters and can posse humans. And manipulate the weather . They can also apparently jam cell phones and shut down automobile engines.
The movie ending was telegraphed from the start: [HIDDEN SPOILER CONTENT]
