Under the Quija series Zen Film Productions SPECTER delves into horror, mystery, and the
supernatural. After the local success of social awareness short films like The Power, A Dark Tale, The
Peril and more, Specter is set to take psychological terror to new heights. The ten-minute film sees
filmmaker and CEO of Zen Film Productions Zenofar Fathima, struggling to overcome her inner
demons, as she sets out to explore an unprecedented presence.
The series is currently being filmed during the Coronavirus outbreak with all safety precautions being
adhered to, which is a rare feat for most filmmakers at this time. The series’ first episode has
premiered exclusively on Zee Cinemas Middle East, with great reviews from the critics. Additionally,
Sheikha Hend Al Qassemi, an Emirati princess of the Al Qasimi family of Sharjah, businesswoman,
and dear friend of Zenofar had praised Zenofar for her work, and wished her all the success for
On the night of the premiere, multiple bloggers, vloggers and local reporters from the UAE had also
caught up with Zen to speak about the film and a little about what inspired the idea to create this
series. “I think I’ve given my best to this film, it’s something new and I have taken on a new role like
never seen before in my past films,” says Zenofar Fathima.
Now that the first episode of the series has released, many are intrigued to watch how this
psychological thriller is set to unfold as the first episode had ended on a cryptic cliff-hanger. There
will be four additional instalments of the series that will each amount to 15 minutes.
The next instalment in the series is currently being filmed and is called ‘Specter: Genesis’, a
mystifying title that is open to audience interpretation. “I don’t want to reveal too much about what
is it to come, but all I can say is get ready to witness a lot of twists and turns, and a bone chilling
narrative and will start a few fresh faces as well as some renowned personalities,” says Zenofar.
Along with the continuation of the Specter Saga, Zenofar also plans to add on to her collection of
public service announcements with Tomorrow Never Came. The story of Tomorrow Never Came
revolves around a tale of a doctor who finds herself in a dilemma when the Coronavirus pandemic
changes her life. The PSA comes shortly after Zenofar released the Hope PSA that focused on
depression and suicidal tendencies of many during the Coronavirus.
