IFC Midnight will release the supernatural horror film The Djinn, from breakout directors, David Charbonier and Justin Powell, starring Ezra Dewey, Rob Brownstein, and Tevy Poe in select theaters and on demand on May 14, 2021.
The Djinn follows a mute, young boy, who unleashes a sinister monster after he makes a wish to fulfill his greatest desire: to have a voice. Now trapped in a small apartment with nowhere to hide, Dylan must find a way to survive until the stroke of midnight or pay the ultimate price.
In addition to The Djinn, David and Justin had their feature directorial debut on the 2020 festival circuit with The Boy Behind The Door premiering at Fantastic Fest and AFI Fest to rave reviews.
Directors David Charbonier and Justin Powell added, “It is an honor to work with IFC Midnight on The Djinn. We made this story to test what we could do with limited resources, but as we developed the film it became something very special to us. We look forward to sharing the movie with audiences nationwide and collaborating with our great distribution partner!”
