| Above average horror!
Ooo Exorcism of a 'Muslim girl!'.Many of peoples liked second half of the film,but I liked first half too much.Because the first half was very interesting editing,shocking moments and contained a suspenseful psychological thriller points.

I love it when a movie surprises me and Semum has a really good twist.The movie was well written and well directed.The big problem is all CGI and some shots of the creature.

I recommend this film to every fan of thrillers and suspense but don't forget this is about exorcism of a Muslim woman!And This isn't as good as "the exorcist" but it is very good and very fresh exorcism movie.
