CAIRO – 14 July – 2018: Arab horror movies have always been notorious for being a complete failure until the production of “Elfeel el Azrak” (Blue Elephant) movie that achieved great success and changed that dim image in the mind of the public towards Arab horror movies.

Following the success of “The Blue Elephant” movie, a group of superstars are now working together on casting in a new movie named “122” that is anticipated to achieve success.

Among the stars casting in “122” are Amina Khalil, Tarek Lotfy, Ahmed Elfishawy, Mamdooh Mohammed, Gihan Khalil, Mohammed Dawood and numerous others.

The movie revolves around a couple that face a catastrophe inside what appears as a hospital. The couple eventually try to escape and run for their lives, but that won’t be easy as they face a lot of obstacles along the way.

The public have split expectations towards “122”. Some expect it to be a great success while others don’t expect much from the movie.

“122” is written by Salah Eljohainy. Eljohainy also previously wrote “Alkhaleya” (The Cell) and “Awlad Rezk” (Rezk’s Sons), both movies that gained great success at the time of their release.

The movie is directed by Iraqi Best Arab Director award winner Yasser Elyassery.
