#DemonteColony - 1st half decent, interval block is good! just 4 characters, less thrill, gud music and camera. Raghavan performance is btr!

Half way thro #DemonteColony. Momentum oscillates but once the stage is set, there are genuinely creepy scenes & a terrific interval twist.
#DemonteColony has solid, effectively creepy moments
Surendhar MK Tweeted
Half way through #DemonteColony. Despite the sluggish start, the film packs an enormous bunch of surprise with an interesting flashback.
#DemonteColony: While the second half is an engaging treat, the film passes out in its final revelation which is not up to the mark.
#DemonteColony: Debutant dir @AjayGnanamuthu shows some directorial flair with this compelling low-budget horror thriller.
#DemonteColony *attempts* to splatter the cliches of the horror genre that we see regularly in Tamil cinema. Has some solid moments.
Average Ratings Given by Audience/Critics: 3

#DemonteColony - Kudos to Director Ajay Gnanamuthu for taking a movie without heroine, forced comedy scenes & no songs in the second half
#DemonteColony - Completely different from recent horror flicks in Tamil Cinema. Cinematography by Aravinnd Singh needs special mention for scenes which happens around Demonte Colony. It has come out really well.

#DemonteColony - 3/5. Downside - character establishment in 1st half takes time, real story in 2nd half. On the whole different & watchable.
#DemonteColony 3/5. It's all about creating the right atmosphere - BGM, camera, sharp cuts, production designs gives that eerie feel.

#DemonteColony [3.25/5] - 1st half slowly starts.. 2nd half, flashback are more engaging.. Dir @AjayGnanamuthu makes u hooked till da end..
#DemonteColony [3.25/5] - A horror movie in which hero @arulnithitamil doesn't get any spl treatment.. Story & Screenplay takes precedence..
#DemonteColony [3.25/5] - A good and simple horror movie.. May not be super scary.. But has enough horror/scary moments to satisfy..

One of the highlights of #DemonteColony, acc to @arulnithitamil, is its great cinematography by @AravinndSingh. Arul raved abt his work
#DemonteColony very smartly made. Proves that a horror flick need not have to rely on the presence of a ghost to generate thrills. Go for it
#DemonteColony running time of 2 hrs approx a big plus. BGM and cinematography will serve as the biggest pillars in drawing audiences.
Good movie all of them acred well and looking for its series #DemonteColony
#Demontecolony : 1st Half Superb Thriller :) BGM's Sema.
Waiting For 2nd Half ;)
A different attempt in Tamil cinema. Unlike other horror movies in Tamil. Much appreciated. @kebajer BGM rock! #DemonteColony
#demontecolony music, a big plus ... No forced comedy like in kanchana 2.. Edge of d seat thriller. Will keep u guessing what's next.
#DemonteColony movie s worth d money... Also a much better film than kanchana 2.. It has its scary moments..
