In another tweet, she said that two malls in Taguig declined block screenings for the film “because apparently they don’t screen local films anymore.”

Directed by Mark Meily and starring Jasmine, Tom Rodriguez, and Miles Ocampo, Maledicto tells the story of an exorcist priest who teams up with a young nun to deal with the demonic possession of a teenager named Agnes. It is the first film produced by Fox Philippines.

The film premiered in theaters on May 1, and is currently fighting for its space on the “Now Showing” lineup as Avengers: Endgame continues to dominate the box office on its second week. – Rappler.com
