I watched the original on the Sci-Fi channel on Saturday and was very surprised at how much I enjoyed it! I saw the second film as well, but this was a couple of years ago, but I do remember liking it too. Part three came on right after the original, but when I saw that Andrew Divoff wasn't playing the Djinn once again, I lost interest and changed the channel. He was fantastically creepy, especially his voice, as the title charactor the 'Djinn', an evil genie who will grant you three wishes in exchange for your soul, but be careful what you wish for, this guy is a master at finding loopholes in your wish!! I was pleasantly surprised to see Tony Todd (Candyman), Robert Englund (Freddy), and Kane Hodder (Jason), turn up in small roles, that was a real kick and added to my enjoyment quite a bit. It was nice to watch a horror film that was different, and was genuinly fun to watch. It was better than most of the crap they make now IMO. Did this film even get a theatrical run? I don't recall it ever being in theaters, I think it was a straight to video release but I could be mistaken. BTW, I know that thier is a dvd release with both the original film and the sequel both in the same package and was thinking of picking them up, but how are they? What's the transfer like, and the audio?
