Horror Semum (2008)


An Old Friend
Semum ( 2008 )
Semum: Director Hasan Karacadag argues that he tried to create a model of a Turkish-Islamic horror film and that he would make the world recognize this model, of which he sees "Semum" as the first example. "Semum" stars Ayça inci, Burak Hakki and Cem Kurtoglu in the lead roles and recounts the true story of a woman who lives in Izmir. "Semum" will be compared with "The Exorcist" and inci will be compared with Linda Blair, the director says, noting that the Turkish horror films made so far have been far from satisfactory.

The version I watched had subtitles but the visuals were okay.
It was certainly weird and loaded with religious undertones.
The over-emphasized expressions added to the effects.
I liked some of the demon designs
