THE EVIL DEAD Remake Receives An R Rating After Cutting Back On Some NC-17 Gore
And here's the least surprising news of the week (via Bloody Disgusting): after earning an NC-17 from the Guardians of Decency at the MPAA, Fede Alvarez's remake of THE EVIL DEAD has been trimmed for an R rating.
What an expected bummer! As we all know, an NC-17 is pretty much a commercial kiss of death. Some publications won't advertise NC-17 movies, while certain exhibitors refuse to book them (as they evidently believe adults will start fucking all over the theater once the lights go down). It sucks, but at least we know the ultra-gory cut will be made available at some point on Blu-ray. So let's take this as an encouraging sign: Alvarez has honored the X-rated tradition of the first two EVIL DEADs!
THE EVIL DEAD '13 arrives in theaters on April 12, 2013. It will also premiere this March at SXSW in Austin. I would very much like to be there for that.
