DAB6E aka DABBE 6: THE RETURN (2015) Reviews and overview


Dab6e – aka Dabbe 6: The Return – is a 2015 Turkish supernatural horror film directed by Hasan Karacadağ (Dabbe franchise; VampiriaMagi; Semum) from a screenplay co-written with Yasar Al. The TAFF Pictures production stars Elcin Atamgüc, Burak Cimen, and Ömer Duran.


A family is haunted by the tragedies of their mother Mukadder’s sudden and unsolved death… they begin experiencing supernatural manifestations via their dreams. Soon, they find themselves in the presence of a dark secret rising from their disturbing past…


” …it all comes down to another bombardment of bombastic recycling from The Exorcist, with Islamic themes and iconography […] many, many quick jumps, sudden twitching, screen-shuffling and similar faddle-nails.” The Cult of Ghoul

” …this is a B-movie with low-production values, mediocre special effects and a storyline that repeats itself over and over again, and at times becomes so unconvincing that the audience doesn’t need to suspend their disbelief for even one moment.” Emine Yildrim, Haberler.com

“The first half employs a cartoonish level of it-was-all-a-dream fake outs, sometimes three or four in rapid succession, and most of the screen is covered in some weird blur filter ; the second half has a lot of found footage and the whole thing is 153 min long and I can’t wait for [email protected].” Street, Street
