Without reading TFA, no it didn't. They cut it for an R rating and whatever NC-17 material will be on the DVD release.

And Bruce Campbell isn't in it so fark you.

I see we're done here.

Didn't Diablo Cody write this screenplay?

/I don't know man, I think I'll wait for it on Netflix.

Hoping for a decent horror movie with this one. It's been a while...

Wasn't it a comedy?

Mugato: Bruce Campbell isn't in it so fark you.


It has his blessing, and honestly, it looks to be exactly the sort of movie that made the earlier ones so good. Cheesy, bad, z-list schlock. This isn't exactly some soulless corporate ripoff of an artistic classic we're talking about.

With reading the TFA, yes it did:

Director Fede Alvarez said, "I was proud of scoring a NC-17 when submitted! But we had to cut stuff out to get an R and get the film into theaters."

I saw an extended preview. Doesn't convince me to see it.
This is one of those movies you should never remake. Up there with the Original SW trilogy, Godfather, Oldboy.

Right, that's exactly what I said they did.

What would even get an NC-17 on the violence/gore tip nowadays? Given all the shiat in the Hostel/Wrong Turn/Saw movies, how much gore would it take to get an NC-17? It had to have been a sex scene.

AverageAmericanGuy: Wasn't it a comedy?


The first one wasn't as comedic originally. Evil Dead 2 was just Evil Dead with comedy. I still have a hard time thinking this will be any good without Bruce Campbell. I mean it may be good, but it won't be the same.

While I also vote for the angry molesting tree--much more explicit than the original--I seem to recall an interview with Rob Zombie concerning "House of 1000 Corpses": he said he cut the number of times a girl was stabbed. Of course, big studio/blockbuster horror movies get a bit more pull than others........

Yeah, you can rip a human being apart in a million different ways and it will only be R rated. In the case of Hostel 2 you can cut off the likeness of a flaccid penis show it to the camera then feed it to a dog, still R. But show the likeness of an erection, or a close up of a vagina? X.
 
2013-01-29 08:23:10 AM
Well the trailer looked pretty damn creepy, might be a good flick

Hostel 2 was farking disgusting and I don't get disgusted easily by fake violence. The virginal girl (the virgin usually survives in these type of movies) played by the cutely homely girl from all those indie films is tied naked upside down while a woman takes a sword or scythe or whatever and slices her up while she's crying. That's not scary. The two little girls in the Shining are scary. The old preacher guy in Poltergeist 2 was scary. That was just sick. But it got an R rating. I can't imagine a tree farking scene being worse than that.

That's the case with more movies than I realized. Rob Zombie, Eli Roth, James Wan, and others have said that they never get an R rating on their first pass with the MPAA.

As far as studios are concerned, I think Tarantino ran into trouble with Grindhouse and Django. Those movies didn't have a rating until less than 3 weeks before they were supposed to open.


Of course, since the first Evil Dead was released unrated after it got an X, I'm not surprised that the remake had trouble in the editing room.
 
2013-01-29 08:42:31 AM
Really, cutting down the number of times someone gets stabbed makes it less dramatic to young audiences? Are we the dumbest country ever?
 
2013-01-29 08:46:01 AM
man I want an evil/scary Army of Darkness now.
 
2013-01-29 08:46:58 AM
It seems to be one of the very few remakes that will capture the tone of the original, dark (not comedic) horror movie. The lead ghoul girl does some pretty sick sh*t in the red-band trailer. So it's Netflix-worthy, which let's face it, is where 90% of us are going to watch it anyway.
 
2013-01-29 08:48:23 AM
I'm already expecting the sequel to be all like:

Evil Dead Remake II: The Cabin In The Woods II

Our rating system certainly is.

As the above people describe: you can dismember, shoot, slice, skewer, impale, crush, smash, beat up, drown, remove appendages, etc. etc. to a vast extent and still receive an R rating. A long sex scene with visible parts, or an erect penis? Bam, NC17. Some vestiges of the old Puritan lifestyle still hang on to this day. Makes no damn sense, given the context, but there ya go.

I don't think the Friday the 13th series has gone one release without the censors losing their collective shiat.
 
2013-01-29 08:59:46 AM
Bruce Campbell made the Evil Dead series for me...I didn't really care what was happening, I just wanted to see him deal with it in his very over-acting but fun way. I don't really think any remake is going to recapture that, so I will probably pass on this.
 
2013-01-29 09:00:06 AM
To everybody crying "no Bruce Campball bawww" - he's a FARKING PRODUCER on the movie, which is being remade by the SAME PEOPLE AS THE ORIGINAL.

And by all accounts I've heard it's pretty good.

A few years back a spent a summer working thru the horror section at Blockbuster as part of a fitness program (walk two miles to and from the Blockbuster once a day).

I'm pretty much burned out on horror. The whole genre seems pretty tame to me. So NC-17 looks like a good thing to me.
