Chinese horror film ‘The Possessed’ delayed for ‘technical reasons’ just four days prior to release

Post by Fortyeightvows » Sun May 06, 2018 6:18 am

We went out tonite and were nearby a movie theater showing the trailer advert for this movie called 中邪 about fortune telling and exorcism.

This is the longer and subtitled trailer they were showing:

So of course I'm interested, and the advert said it was already released, so I went to the scheduled to see when it was showing and it wasn't listed on the schedule.
So when I get home I go online and find out that the movie hasn't even been released yet because of ccp censorship!

Heres the article: http://www.globaltimes.cn/content/1096126.shtml
Due to the ban on "content that promotes superstition" stipulated in the 2016 Film Industry Promotion Law and previous film regulations, movies released in the mainland are usually not permitted to depict the supernatural unless a scientific explanation is given later on in the film to ground the "spirits" or "ghosts" in reality - mental illness or hallucinations caused by drugs are the most commonly used justifications in these films.
So if a movie is banned in the mainland then even people in other countries can't watch it! Ridiculous!

But it looks like a really cool movie!!
