Evil Dead was given a NC-17 rating; fitting

Apparently they still dole out the NC-17 rating here in the states and the Evil Dead remake just scored it after the MPAAs initial judgment. The film’s director, Fede Alvarez, went to Twitter and seemed pretty happy about it as he should be. After seeing the initial trailer he has removed the cheese and went for the over the top gore and fright factor. It works in every way and he should be proud of it.

@WoozyTribe 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.

Of course he had to make a cut of the film so that it achieved an R rating here so that as many people as possible can see it in theatres. Like the 13 year-old shit head middle school kids that you immediately hate as soon as you see them walking in to the theatre.  -J
