For the first time in Southeast Asia, Twitter users can catch the full-feature film directly through the social media platform at 8:00PM (GMT+8) on Friday, March 29 on iflix Philippine’s official Twitter account (@iflixph). As a special treat, fans can live tweet with the film’s stars, including Iza Calzado (@MissIzaCalzado), Sunshine Dizon (@m_sunshinedizon), Karylle (@anakarylle), and Diana Zubiri (@DianaZubiri15, in an interactive Twitter party.

Mystified tells the story of four sorceresses who, through their combined efforts, have banished the evil witch Hellga and locked her away with the Portalis. Sent to live in the real world to protect the magic portal – without permission to use any of their powers – they must come together to protect mankind from a great evil that is coming their way.
The action-fantasy-drama will also be available on-demand on iflixFREE and iflixVIP from 29 March at 8pm.
Sherwin dela Cruz, Co-founder and Country Manager for iflix Philippines, shared, “The iflix team is so proud of how Mystified turned out and we want to give the largest possible audience the chance to experience the film for free.
