Demonte Colony (2015)
Demonte Colony is one of the top haunted areas in Chennai in Alwarpet area. The movie is an inspiration from a tale that has been in rounds around Chennai for a while now, a wealthy Portuguese business man from the 19th century who led a troubled life with his ill wife and a son who died mysteriously.
Ajay, former assistant of AR Murugadoss has taken perks from this movie to draft a full-fledged horror movie with Arulnidhi in the lead. Produced by Mohana Movies and Sri Thenandal Movies, the movie has music by Keba Jeremiah, cinematography by Aravind Singh and editing by Bhuvan Srinivasan
One rainy night, after some heavy drinking and fun at a bar, four friends – Srinivasan (Arulnithi), Vimal (Ramesh Thilak), Raghavan, and Sajith – decide to visit the De Monte Colony, an area in Chennai Alwarpet for some thrills.
The place is dark, deserted and spooky and after some goofing around, the four return home.
Though the visit seems harmless enough, one of the friends, Raghavan, has an ulterior motive. He is an aspiring film maker who wants to make a movie on Demonte Colony. So, to understand more they decide to spend a night in a house there.
He has knowledge of a unique gold chain with precious stones made by De Monte for his much-loved wife that is believed to be somewhere in the ruins of the colony.
When he shows the expensive jewellery to his friends the next day, they are stunned. They agree to help him sell it and share the money.
But De Monte wants his precious possession back. The thrilling second half is all about whether Srinivasan and his friends can survive.
