Celebrate Halloween with Golden Village’s Horror Film Festival!

By Edric  /  24 Oct 2017 (Tuesday)

Celebrate Halloween this year with Golden Village’s first Horror Film Festival with some of the region’s best horror films. Horror Film Festival kicks off on 27 October with a team of Singapore Paranormal Investigators as they let you in on their spooky encounters while exploring “haunted” buildings in Singapore.
Also starting the Horror Film Festival is The Promise, a Thai horror film. A broken promise between two friends Ib and Boum who decided to commit suicide together after a financial crisis. The Promise is the highest grossing horror movie this year and will hit cinemas in Singapore on 16 November – after Horror Film Festival.
Other films to feature are award-winning films The Autopsy of Jane Doe (English), The Bride (Mandarin), The Evil Within (English) and Dearest Sister (Laos). Dearest Sister is also the first Laotian film to have been selected to compete in the running for the Best Foreign Language Film at the Oscars, 90th Academy Awards.
Catch the film festival at Golden Village Plaza and Golden Village Yishun for this Halloween’s most ghoulish movie experience in Singapore. Movie tickets for the opening night are priced at S$10 (Members) and S$13 (Public).

The construction of a premium luxury condominium, which their parents jointly invested in had been suspended. Unable to accept the harsh truth, they decided to end their lives together at the unfinished tower, where they promised to be together forever. In the end Ib died all along.
Twenty years later, Boum becomes a successful real estate entrepreneur. One day, she gets to visit the abandoned tower with her beloved daughter Bell. That night, however, Boum wakes up and finds Bells sleepwalking and talking to herself in the dark. Bell’s sleepwalking condition continues to worsen every night.
