This third entry in the series, sees a departure from the first two, as it is decidedly more teen horror than previous chapters.

A fine cast of Canadian horror veterans including A.J. Cook, Tobias Mehler, Daniella Evangelista and Emanuelle Vaugier are all Comparitive Religion and Mythology students at Illinois Baxter University, who get caught up in the Djinn's evil plans for world domination, when teaching asistant Diana Collins (Cook) opens a rare puzzle box and inadvertantly unleashes the Djinn.

Anyone who has seen either of the two previous films, will know what to expect from this, but as it is minus the talents of Andrew Divoff there is sadly something lacking.

The film starts well enough, highlighting it's change of direction with a score and opening sequence similar to that of Candyman , which is both refreshing and works in the film's favour.

John Novak never quite did it for me as the Djinn however, partly because of the poor vocal effects and partly because he doesn't get enough of a chance to do his thing, as the Djinn largely carries out his evil deeds under the guise of Jason (son of Sean) Connery.

Also it would appear that due to budget constraints, the film-makers decided to add more nudity and gore rather than concentrate on developing the story arc further.

One aspect which really annoyed me was the underuse of the talented cast. You can tell that certain characters are there just to die, and that's why I was surprised that certain actors decided to do the film. In particular the talents of Evangelista and Vaugier are wasted.

OVERALL SUMMARY
In all, do not expect this film to act as the concluding part of a trilogy as apart from the basic mythology everything is different. If viewed as a seperate film, you may find this to be mildly entertaining.
