'Jangan Padang Belakang' To Release in Singapore

APRIL 24 – Local horror "Jangan Pandang Belakang" is set for the biggest release of a Malaysian movie in Singapore on 3 May at a record 12 locations.

David Teo of Metrowealth Movie Productions, the producer of "Jangan Pandang Belakang", said that the prints (film reels) for Singapore have been specially made with Mandarin and English subtitles.
"We are going head-on against "Spider-Man 3" which will be opening in Singapore at the same time," said Teo. "With the release of the movie in 12 locations, we are actually covering the whole of Singapore."

Teo said "Jangan Padang Belakang" has collected RM5.91 million in its 20 days at the cinemas. This is just RM250,000 short of breaking the all-time Malaysian box-office record of RM6.1 million set by "Sembilu 2" in 1996.

"We are confident the movie will surpass the RM6.1 million mark soon," said Teo.

"Jangan Pandang Belakang" (or ‘Don’t Look Behind’) raised eyebrows with a record-breaking collection of RM410,000 on its opening day. From then on, there was no looking ‘behind’ as it continued its reign at the top of the local movie chart throughout its second weekend.
