Here is some news that is sure to delight EVIL DEAD fans: The remake got an NC-17 rating from the MPAA.
Fede Alvarez had the following to say on Twitter:
“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.”
The idea of cutting gore and extreme violence kind of mutes the excitement, but clearly Fede Alvarez is going about this remake in the right way (and we’ll get to see it all on DVD/Blu-Ray anyway). The movie is coming April 5th and stars Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci, Jessica Lucas, and Elizabeth Blackmore.
