Sint film poster worries classification body

The film and tv classification body Nicam has had dozens of complaints about the poster for new horror film Sint, which features Sinterklaas – the Dutch originator of Santa Claus.

Nicam says young children have been frightened by the poster, which shows a sinister-looking St Nicholas in silhouette against a full moon.
The body says it can take no action against the poster, but the advertising standards authority is also considering the complaints and will announce its ruling this week.
