EVIL DEAD Remake Gets NC-17 From MPAA, Recutting For An R

EvilDeadSam Raimi’s original The Evil Dead was advertised as “The Ultimate Experience in Grueling Horror,” but it sounds as if the remake is working hard to live up to that billing as well.

In a tweet yesterday afternoon, director of the new iteration of the horror classic Fede Alvarez responded to a question about the film’s rating with the following reveal –

But don’t worry, it’s not like you won’t get to see Alvarez’s original cut. You know that the studio will rush out the uncut version on home video as soon as they can without impacting on sales for the theatrical version DVD/blu-ray edition.

If you need a hint as to how intense this movie may be, even in its R rated version, here is its red band trailer. Strap in.

Evil Dead hits theaters April 12.
