For those of you that decided to watch the leaked NYCC Evil Dead footage, you know there's going to be a hell of a lot of blood in the remake. There was so much blood used that it made the film's star, Jane Levy, physically sick! Hell! She still has blood coming out of her ears! She says there so much blood and that the movie is so crazy that the movie is going to have issues getting an 'R' rating. Here's what she told MTV,
I think it's going to be worse than an R. There's a lot of blood. There's so much blood that the blood got stuck in my ear and I had a terrible ear infection when I was there and couldn't hear for three weeks.
This is really gross, but, I cleaned my ear three weeks ago — and I clean my ears every week — but there's still blood, and I'm not even kidding, there's still red coming out of my ears. That's not a joke. It's really kind of scary.
That's pretty crazy, but it's not like she or any of the other actors weren't warned. Bruce Campbell sent them an e-mail, and even told them what to expect when they auditioned,
I sent them an email before they started shooting. 'Don't party. You're going to need all the strength you got. Be ready and be physically able. When we were casting in the audition room, I surprised a few actors by saying, 'Are you ready for special FX make-up? Have you ever had special FX make-up? Are you ready for that?' And they're like, 'Oh yeah, sure. It's like riding a horse. It'll be easy.'
Campbell grinned his signature grin at the memory, saying, "Well... they found out quick."
Campbell goes on to also admit that the movie is going to have rating issues with the MPAA saying,
We're going to have ratings problems out the butt. We have a screening coming up later this month, and I'm like, 'Good luck, Chuck!'
I want to see that cut of the film! I want to see the cut with everything before they have to start editing out all of the insanity! Are you happy to hear the movie is so violently hardcore that it might get slapped with an NC-17 rating?
