23:59hrs Singapore horror movie going into production

Said to be based on real events (the best kind of horror in my opinion) 23:59hrs is set in 1983 at an army barrack at Pulau Tekong. Apparently the title comes from a term used by the military to refer to the final and most frightening time of night. It’s slim pickings on details at the moment but it has been confirmed Gilbert Chan, writer and director of Xing Wu fan sui and S11 will direct.

There is a legend in the army camp that at the exact hour of 23:59 hours, a woman dressed in white will enter the bunk house. She will pick out a soldier and stand beside his bed, waiting for him to open his eyes. When he does so and stares into her hollow eyes, she will drag him away, bringing him back with her into hell. In 1983, an incident happened in Singapore that shocked the entire nation. A recruit was found dead during a road march and all his internal organs were ripped out of his body and laid beside it. After the death of the recruit, strange things started to happen in the bunk, leading to speculation that the woman in white was responsible. A third door, on recommendation of a medium, was built in the bunk room for the spirit to leave. After the third door is built, life seems to return to normal until one night when another recruit dies in a bizarre fashion at the medical center. The new death throws the camp in turmoil as the officer and recruits face a race against time to find out the truth.
