Chinese crime film "the Dead End" has nabbed over 100 million yuan, or 16 million US dollars.

This comes just three days after its opening.

The film tells a story in which a family of five is brutally slaughtered in a rape-murder case.

The perpetrators evaded arrests but later confessed to their crimes and were brought to justice.

The film is directed by Cao Baoping, who was also at the helm of many award-winning films such as "Einstein and Einstein" and "the Equation of Love And Death".

He was named the Best Director with "the Dead End" at the 18th Shanghai International Film Festival this June.

Three actors in the film - Deng Chao, Duan Yihong and Guo Tao shared the Best Actor award at the festival.
