    Reviews

    Todd Brown, writing for Twitch Film, claims to have been, drawn in by the simple but compelling story of a young family haunted and possessed, with, a pretty compelling blend of pulp with legitimate tension, which looks to ride that same split in influences, of technical proficiency and just plain pulp that has long been the mark of Turkish genre films, though the technical end looks stronger than most, with, truly moody and unsettling imagery. If the film comes close to living up to the trailer this thing is EASILY going to be the best Turkish genre picture of the past five to ten years, he concludes.

    Chris Churchill, also writing for Twitch Film, adds that, The film also scored Theatrical releases in a few European countries earlier in the year, something quite rare for Turkish genre films in the past, so there could be something that makes Musallat stand out from the recent crop of Turkish Horror films produced.
