A local video crew, JUO Productions, has chosen Yishun as the topic of their new video, titled “If Yishun Were A Movie”.

The video clip, published on Wednesday (26 April), pokes fun at the ‘strange happenings’ in Yishun by imagining it as a horror movie parody trailer.

It begins with a young couple who walks out of an HDB flat with a real estate agent who tells them that “Yishun is [a] very good place to live in” and that “nothing bad has ever happened before”.

After the couple agrees to move into the flat, the real estate agent is seen running from the Yishun estate.

The next scene shows the couple moving in to their new home excitedly. They are greeted by their new neighbour, a creepy old lady who just happens to be watering a bloody baby doll just outside of their new apartment.

She then warns them (in an equally creepy voice accompanied with sinister laughter) that they will never be able to move out of the place.

The happy couple soon gets plagued by sightings of ghostly figures and crying baby dolls during their stay there.

Unable to take it any longer, they rush out of their house with their luggage in tow. They encounter a neighbour who screams in their faces and the bloody corpse of the same real estate agent at their void deck.

On their way out, they see a giant green glowing caterpillar on a tree, and turn to witness a giant Godzilla-like creature spewing fire.

They then jump into their car and attempt to drive out, but after three hours, they are still somehow stuck in Yishun.

The next scene features a man petting a cat, with the couple smiling over some semblance of normalcy in the neighbourhood. But they soon hear the cat screaming as if it is being attacked, reminiscent of the cat killings in Yishun.

The horrified couple runs away and see the ground falling away from beneath their feet as an alien spaceship appears in the sky.
