The remake of The Evil Dead has gone before the MPAA rating committee and returned with an NC-17 rating. That sent director Fede Alvarez back to the editing suite to tone down some of the violence and gore so the film could have an R-rating.
The R-rating is necessary to get the film into theaters, since many chains won’t show NC-17 or unrated films.
Of course, this means that we’ll get a Blu-Ray and DVD release of the unrated version.
So, will you see the new Evil Dead in theaters or will this news make you wait for the unrated version?
