Looks like the latest horror film by Syamsul Yusof continues to scare audiences effectively managing to collect RM 11 million after spending two weeks at the cinemas.
According to Skop Production’s Datuk Yusof Haslam, although the film directed by his son is up against tough competition from local and international movies, but it succeeded in attracting an audience as it has its own strengths.
“Typically, films that are screened through the Compulsory Screening Scheme will face the prospect of reduced cinemas screening after two weeks.
“The cinemas are entitled to do so to make way for the new films. However, it does not apply to “Munafik” as it is seen to have great potential to last longer,” he tells BH Online.
Meanwhile, Yusof Haslam reveals they received a lot of positive feedback for the movie “Munafik” and have started receiving a new audience group comprising of scholars.
“Munafik” tells the tale of an Islamic medical practitioner who is unable to carry on after the death of his wife in an accident. He then later agrees to treat a woman named Maria that is disturbed by supernatural forces, yet he experiences strange occurrences.
This film stars Nabila Huda, Pekin Ibrahim, Fizz Fairuz, A Galak, Datuk Rahim Razali and Syamsul himself.
