Major Platinum Cineplex recently announced that the showing of the much anticipated horror film, Jigsaw, has been cancelled. The Department of Cinema (Ministry of Information, Culture and Tourism) has deemed the movie to be inappropriate for viewers. This is the second time that the Department has banned a movie from showing in theaters nationwide. Fifty Shades Darker became the first movie to be banned from theaters in February earlier this year.
This has caused much criticism on social media as viewers were looking forward to the 8th installment of the horror series beginning with the acclaimed movie, Saw.
