Evil Dead and The Lords of Salem Get Their Official Ratings

“Strong bloody violence and gore, some sexual content and language.”  That’s what got the official R rating for the Evil Dead remake, opening April 12th.

We ran a report yesterday stating that the MPAA slapped the film with an NC-17.  Bodes well, because it means Fede Alvarez isn’t f**king around.  But it also means that he had to make some cuts to get an R rating so the film could be released.

As I said, expect a bloodier director’s cut on Blu-ray at some point.

As for Rob Zombie’s The Lords of Salem?  An R rating.  Naturally.  The MPAA states the film has ”disturbing violent and sexual content, graphic nudity, language and some drug use.”  Look for that depravity on April 26th.
