“Tiec Trang Mau” (Blood Moon Party) beat “Em Chua 18” (Jailbait) to become one of the top three highest grossing movies in domestic cinema history.

Five weeks after its release, the film has grossed VND177 billion ($7.6 million), beating “Em Chua 18” (Jailbait), released in 2017 and directed by Le Thanh Son, once having earned a record VND172 billion ($7.4 million).

“Blood Moon Party” is currently ranked below “Cua Lai Vo Bau” (Win My Baby Back), grossing VND193 billion, and “Mat Biec” (Dreamy eyes), grossing VND180 billion.

The movie ranked second in the box office chart during the last three days of the past week, led by “The Croods 2”, an animation about prehistoric people setting off on an expedition in the modern world. Box Office Vietnam reports “The Croods 2” has raked in over VND8 billion at its premiere on November 27.

Director Quang Dung revealed his decision to make “Blood Moon Party” relied on his admiration for the Italian original, shot on a limited set, with a smart screenplay, intense plot, and relatable content. At first, the team had intended to include details more familiar to local audiences such as spam messaging or real estate cold calling, but later decided to stick to the original scenario.

“Blood Moon Party” revolves around four childhood friends growing up to work in different jobs, including journalism, plastic surgery and teaching. They reunite at a housewarming party and play a game of sharing texts and calls that spill a lot of secrets.

The plot sticks close to the South Korean movie, which is itself a remake of Italian movie “Perfect Strangers,” released in 2016, and directed by Paolo Genovese. This movie is registered in the Guinness Book of World Records as the most remade in the history of cinema with a total of 18 remakes across the globe.
