The debut of the movie also marked the return of film-making, M Jamil, the son of silver screen icon Datuk Sarimah Ahmad and the most promising actor at the Second Malaysian Film Festival in 1982, who is once again donning his movie-maker's cap, after a 15-year hiatus.
Mell said she is thrilled with her first film and looked forward to more offers. "During the premiere of 'Momok The Movie' at TGV Mines, Seri Kembangan, many people in the industry including film directors liked my acting. "A film producer, David Teo, asked for my profile, to offer me parts for future films," she said. "Momok The Movie is my first major starring role, and it's an honour to work with Jamil and Sarimah, who are a brilliant mother-and-son team," she added.
Momok The Movie is the story of Adlin (Faizal) who returns to his village in Temerloh, Pahang, for a holiday and to visit Pak Ajis' (Datuk Aziz Sattar) stall. Joined by close friend Kadir (Abon, who also starred in Momok), Adlin learns about vampires and ghosts with names like "pontianak", "pocong", "orang bunian", "sampuk", zombies and the mohini of Indian folklore. Along the way, strange things start to unravel where Adlin discovers that there is more to the ghost-loving hawker than we know.
