Thus far everything we've seen from Fede Alvarez's remake of Evil Dead has been gory to the bone. And after witnesng all the excesve violence that was spawned from the red-band trailer, one could only wonder how the film could draw an R-rating. Well it looks as if all those in question were right.
Alvarez took to Twitter today to answer a fan's question regarding the film's rating.
"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."
Hopefully this means we'll still be getting a nice dose of blood and guts, with all the rest of the excesve gore/violence saved for the Blu-ray/DVD home video release.
Evil Dead hits theaters on April 12th.
