If you've seen the crazy ass blood drenched red-band trailer for the Evil Dead remake, then it shouldn't surprise you to hear that the MPAA slapped an NC-17 rating on the film after its first pass. Director Fede Alvarez tweeted the following...
Was proud of scoring a NC17 when submitted! But we had to cut stuff out to get an R and get the film into theaters
So they did end up cutting it down for the theatrical R-rated release. But I wouldn't worry, I'm sure the insanely violent unrated version will be released on Blu-ray at some point, so we will get to see it.
This movie looks gut-wrenching, and as a fan of the orignal films, I'm incredibly excited to see what this movie has to offer. I love everything I've seen from it so far, and it's going to deliver some jaw dropping moments of death and chaos.
The movie stars Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci, Jessica Lucas, and Elizabeth Blackmore. In the remake of the 1981 cult-hit horror film, five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin. When they discover a Book of the Dead, they unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.
Evil Dead hits theaters on April 12th!
