Malaysia’s Don’t Look at the Demon flick has made history as the first local film to hit over 250 cinemas across North America.
Movie director, Brando Lee said in a press conference at Dadi Cinemas in Pavilion KL, “With the global release of Don’t Look at the Demon, I hope to inspire local producers to reach for the stars and keep pushing forward to represent Malaysia on an international scale. The release of this film is not just my success, but it is the success of all of us in Malaysia,” Lee continued. “I am extremely proud to set the benchmark and bring pride to our country. This film will forever be an emblem to remind Malaysia that no goal is too big if you set your minds to it.”
Inspired by a true banned ritual in Asia, Don’t Look at the Demon tells the story of a group of American paranormal investigators who investigated a series of spiritual disturbances at a house built on Fraser’s Hill, Malaysia in the early 1970s.
