Haunted Mansion makes presence felt at tills

MANILA, Philippines - Regal Entertainment’s Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) entry Haunted Mansion is making its presence felt at the box-office when it earned P10M on opening day to land on third spot in the annual festival of Pinoy movies.

Haunted Mansion was not a big favorite when the eight entries were announced early this year considering that lead teen stars Janella Salvador, Marlo Mortel and Jerome Ponce have yet to prove their drawing power.

But the mother and daughter tandem of Mother Lily and Roselle Monteverde believed that these fresh talents can hold their own against movie giants.

Mother Lily and Roselle also chose such a multi-awarded director as Jun Lana to steer Regal’s horror entry to box-office success this year. The choice paid off as moviegoers scream their lungs out in terrifying scenes and come out of the theaters horrified.

Public support to Haunted Mansion is overwhelming and Mother Lily couldn’t be any grateful: “Thank you for supporting Regal and I am very happy to gross P10M-plus. Me and Roselle, plus the whole team try our very best to make this picture successful and considering our cast of stars who are all new but we try to make this new stars fulfill their goals in life.”

Due to Haunted Mansion’s impressive box-office performance, several theaters have been added to its roster of 48 cinemas since Day 3 of the MMFF. These are SM Tarlac, Baguio, Sta. Rosa, Lucena, Batangas, Waltermart Tanauan, Sta. Lucia, Robinsons Iloilo, Dasmariñas and Bacolod.
