Horror film The Killing Games banned from international festival

Horror film The Killing Games has been banned from an international festival because it is "too violent."

Michael Hamm, chairman of the Edmonton International Film Festival in Canada, made the decision after seeing the film at a private screening held by director Barry J. Gillis.
