EVIL DEAD Gets NC-17 Rating, Heads Back To Editing Room

Director Fede Alvarez has revealed that the MPAA has given the Evil Dead reboot an NC-17 rating and that they'll have to go back to the editing room to tone the movie down for an R-rating. I'm sure that redband trailer is still giving nightmares to more than a few.

Hopefully, we'll get the NC-17 version on DVD and blu-ray or maybe even a special uncut release in theaters. Based on that insane redband trailer this isn't too much of a surprise, honestly.
In the much anticipated 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.














Running Time: 1 hr 30 min.
Release Date: April 12, 2013
MPAA Rating:NC-17, being recut for R
Starring: Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Jessica Lucas, Lou Taylor Pucci, Elizabeth Blackmore
Directed by: Fede Alvarez
Written by: Sam Raimi (1981 screenplay), Fede Alvarez (screenplay), Diablo Cody (screenplay), Rodo Sayagues (screenplay)

You [frick]s are so fickle. Oh I hate this film, now I like it. Have some integrity.
PsyGuy - 1/28/2013, 2:26 PM
I hope it has some real scares rather than witless gore
superpooper - 1/28/2013, 2:36 PM
Nice. I want to see the un-edited version.
SamHell - 1/28/2013, 2:38 PM

Nomis1800 - 1/28/2013, 2:46 PM
Horrors SHOULD be NC-17 >:D
DanteSparda - 1/28/2013, 2:50 PM
So the Dead isn't that Evil after all?

Well I hope we get the Directo's Cut on BR and DVD.
DonaldBlake68 - 1/28/2013, 3:13 PM
Keep it the way it is. Screw making it a R-Rated film. People want something different than the norm.
BlueDemon - 1/28/2013, 3:18 PM
I can't wait for the DVD Unrated version then


BlueDemon - 1/28/2013, 3:20 PM
LOL Damn that Gif is freaky. You're welcome people
PapaII - 1/28/2013, 3:30 PM
[frick] yeah, babe! Expect that they won't cut it too much.
JimmyPesto - 1/28/2013, 3:36 PM
I can already tell you what's getting chopped first:
The tree rape scene
DanteSparda - 1/28/2013, 3:43 PM
@Scabsallover

Probably right, too bad I really like me some tentacle rape in my horror movies.
retr0g0dfather - 1/28/2013, 3:55 PM
NC17!?....that is AWESOME! Being edited for an R rating is not. I don't want them to cut to much, it may ruin the vision already filmed. I hope they release a true unedited version for Bluray release.
johan02 - 1/28/2013, 3:57 PM
Ok I was all ready to count this out with all the other remakes, espcially after I heard there will be no "Ash". Well you can call him whatever you want I saw a guy hack a bitch up with a chainsaw! I saw a girl about to get rapped by a tree(probably a scene they have to cut)I saw a deadite chick locked in a basement. I am now offcially ampped up for this movie.
As a fan of the original I still have my doubts but this looks pretty good. I cant wait to get the uncut dvd and the movie hasn't even been released yet lol.
Pooh - 1/28/2013, 4:28 PM
The first Evil Dead was almost funny because it was excessively gorey. But this movie has people cutting up their own faces.

This isn't horror. This is insanity. Crazy people are going to watch it, and become even crazier.

StingrayX - 1/28/2013, 6:19 PM
I wonder how the unrated version is going to be lol
Jimdlux - 1/28/2013, 6:38 PM
I want the NC-17 :(
Tufasrox - 1/28/2013, 8:08 PM
The MPAA are a bunch of wanks who should have nothing to do with movie ratings. No accountability and secret. Not cool and they at MINIMUM should be open and transparent when it comes to their work.
Christuffer - 1/29/2013, 3:50 AM
Don't cut out the sex scenes
CrowPirate1 - 1/29/2013, 4:32 AM
