THE 11-year ban on Dukun, a Mona Fandey-inspired horror movie, has raked in RM6.2 million in ticket sales in just four days after opening in Malaysia and Brunei. Its ticket collection when it premiered on April 5 was RM1.5 million.

The impressive box office figure was announced by Golden Screen Cinemas on its Facebook page yesterday.
