The movie

When a childhood friend of theirs that had mysteriously vanished makes his return, three buddies must face their monstrous past. An ambitious film that makes the most of its various influences.

Four children are exploring a haunted house when one of them vanishes. When he reappears 25 years later, his friends – who have since forgotten the details of the incident – must contend with Boughatate, a terrifying djinn. Although there are too many Halloween-inspired films to count, the exploration of Arabic mythology has yet to become a cinematic genre in itself. Talal Selhami’s follow-up to Mirages (NIFFF 2011) is a bold tale featuring the Moroccan bogeyman.
