"The film has opened to phenomenal numbers. In its first week, it has approximately grossed Rs.6 crore. It is already a hit and continues to run to packed houses," trade analyst Trinath told IANS.
Directed by debutant Ajay Gnanamuthu, the film is about how a group of friends get locked up inside their room with a ghost on their trail.
Producers from Telugu and Kannada industries have already imitated talks to remake the film.
"Demonte Colony" has joined bandwagon of recent successful Tamil horror films such as "Kanchana 2", "Pisasu" and "Yaamirukka Bayamey".
