According to the MTRCB’s 2004 Implementing Rules and Regulations, a film is given an X-rating if it contains scenes of “gratuitous sex and/or violence; patently lewd, offensive and demeaning depiction of sexual conduct; an attack against any race, creed, or religion; condoning and encouraging the use of illegal drugs and substances; undermining the faith and confidence of people in government; glorifies criminals or condones crimes; libelous to the good name of a person; and constitute contempt of court.” According to ABS-CBN News, “’Tragic Theater’ is based on the G.M. Coronel novel about a group of spirit communicators who attempted to exorcise the Manila Film Center, the rushed construction of which reportedly left more than a hundred workers buried alive in 1981.” “It remains to be seen which parts will be cut for the version of the trailer to be submitted for public exhibition, in time for “Tragic Theater’s” January 2015 opening,” the network also added. In spite of it all, Viva Films, the producer of the film itself decided to post the full two-and-a-half-minute long trailer on its YouTube channel.
