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.
