Evil Dead Makes Cuts After Receiving NC-17 Rating.


Evil Dead recently received the NC-17 rating meaning that we can expect to see plenty of violence and gore, but it had to scale back to obtain an “R”.   NC-17 films have typically not fared as well as their “R” rated counterparts.  Being a studio film they had to go for the lesser rating.  Hardcore fans should still expect to get their moneys worth and should expect to see an unrated director’s cut.

Director Fede Alvarez spoke on Twitter this morning about what the next step is:

“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,” he told fans via his Twitter account.  Of course, he had to make cuts to get an “R.”
