Board Member Atty. Eric Mallonga in an interview with Ricky Carandang of ANC has this to say regarding MTRCB’s decision:
What we have done in this movie is merely classify this on the basis of the suitability of this movie. Now we have classified this as suitable only for an adult audience because we feel that an adult audience would be discerning enough precisely to understand or to distinguish between fact or fiction and between what is good and what is evil. And these are things which appear in the movie.
For adults only means that the movie can only be seen by individuals who are 18 years old and above.
