That “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” street cred is still serving Tobe Hooper pretty well, though the director hasn’t really done a whole lot of note in a while. The only film of his I’ve seen since was 2004’s “Toolbox Murders”, which I liked, though it really wasn’t anything innovative. He’s also directed some episodes of the cable horror show “Masters of Horror”, but he’s been pretty quiet since. Hooper’s latest in over 6 years is the desert-set “Djinn”. I don’t recognize any of the faces in the cast, but setting a horror movie in one of those ridiculously opulent Middle Eastern hotels should go a long way. Check out the first extended trailer for Tobe Hooper’s “Djinn” below.
An Emirati couple return home from a trip and discover that their new apartment has been built on a site that is home to some malevolent beings.
Starring Khalid Laith, Paul Luebke, Aiysha Hart, Razane Jammal, Saoud Al Kaabi, Ghaleb El Saadi, May El Calamawy, and Malik McCall.
Look out for the Djinn sometime in 2012.
