Hi Bryan Here….
The remake of ‘The Evil Dead‘ officially received an NC-17 rating, which by all of the reports we’ve written about and the producers talking how intense it is, I can believe it. And when I saw the red band trailer, it completely confirmed it. This remake is going to be one scary motherfucker. Unfortunately, if a film wants to make any sort of money at the box office, it can’t be rated NC-17, as most theater chains won’t show NC-17 movies.
Director Fede Alvarez said, “I was proud of scoring a NC-17 when submitted! But we had to cut stuff out to get an R and get the film into theaters.” And I completely agree with that. This film needs to be seen. Now don’t fret too much though. Most of the time, the difference between a NC-17 rating and an R rating for these types of films usually is somebody getting stabbed 7 times rather than 12 times. Let’s hope that’s the case here. But, I bet we see the NC-17 cut on blu-ray.
‘The Evil Dead‘ rises to theaters April 12th and looks to scare the hell out of everyone. I can’t wait.
