Will this ‘devil’ reel in money?
AFTER Shrek Forever After, The Incredible Hulk, The Green Hornet and The Green Lantern, local moviegoers will get to see another green creature and no, it is not Kermit The Frog from The Muppets.
In fact, this little green monster is Malaysian-made and well known among the Malays for being a mischievous character.
Known as toyol, this child-like devil is raised by greedy people to get rich quick since the little monster is an expert thief.
Imagine Lord of the Rings’ Gollum, but green in colour.
It is also known to drink its master’s blood and will kill its master if not properly fed.
“This is not a horror film but a comedy in which the toyol is not going to scare the audience. In fact, he will make you laugh,” said Ismail Bob Hasim, the director of Alamak Toyol.
The film, produced by MIG Productions, opened nationwide last Thursday.
It is targeted at families and made with kids in mind.
