Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
Rob Zombie has been putting the focus on his upcoming Horror movie 31 which has already been filmed and has even had some private showings. The filmmaker has been releasing bits of information and imagery along the way to keep fans satisfied until the stars fully align so that we can finally see the finished product.
It turns out that more obstacles are in the way. Zombie's 31 has just been reviewed by the MPAA for a second time and once again has received an NC-17 rating for "sadistic graphic violence, bizarre sexuality/nudity, pervasive disturbing images, and some strong language.".
Zombie said of the situation:
"Well, after two tries through the MPAA our rating on 31 remains NC-17. Maybe three is the charm to get an R rating. Why R you ask? Well, because your local theater will not show an NC-17. Even though you are a f**king adult... things must be censored for your enjoyment."
This is not the first time that Zombie has done battle with the MPAA over an NC-17 rating. Back in 2005 he submitted THE DEVIL'S REJECTS eight times before the film received an R rating.
The 31 cast is made up of Meg Foster, Pancho Moler, Jeff Daniel Phillips, Jane Carr, Sheri Moon Zombie, Richard Brake, Ginger Lynn, Malcolm McDowell, E.G. Daily, Daniel Roebuck, Lawernce Hilton-Jacobs, Judy Geeson, Torsten Voges, David Ury, Lew Temple, Kevin Jackson, Michael 'Redbone' Alcott, Tracy Walter, Devin Sidell, and Bari Suzuki.
"Five random people kidnapped on the five days leading up to Halloween and held hostage in a place called Murder World. While trapped inside this man-made Hell they must fight to survive playing the most violent game known to man... a game called 31.
31 has no rules. 31 has no boundaries. It is ever so simple. Do whatever you can do to kill your opponent before they kill you. Keep this up for 12 hours and freedom is yours.
Who are the opponents? Well... a group of vile, filthy, blood-thirsty clowns known as THE HEADS. They come in all shapes and sizes and each grows nastier than the last."
31 will be screening at Sundance this January.
