‘Pulau’ horror for conservatives

Commentary by Mustafa K. Anuar

THE Film Censorship Board of Malaysia categorically stated that “Pulau” (Island) is a horror flick and not porn, in defence against critics claiming the film has excessive steamy scenes that are considered offensive to the moral values of ordinary Malaysians.

Based on what was seen in the film trailer that was circulated on social media, a conservative segment of society has urged the board to review its approval for the movie screening. The movie is slated to be screened on March 9.
