Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D was cut for R rating

Uncut version would have gotten the infamous NC-17

Initially, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D was supposed to start in US cinemas later this year but got pushed back to a January 4th, 2013 release. Some days ago, the info surfaced that the horror film got an R rating, which is hardly a surprise and therefore not newsworthy for us.

R-Rated for "strong, grisly violence and language throughout"

However, as ComicBookMovie reports, the delay for the theatrical run has its roots in problems with the MPAA during the rating process where the board obviously wanted to give the film the infamous NC-17 rating. Some earlier examples (e.g. Hard Target, TCM: The Beginning, Hatchet 2) show that in some cases, distributors have to submit numerous versions of films in order to get the R rating with hopefully only a small amount of cuts.

It's currently unknown how often TCM 3D had to stand before the MPAA until it got its rating but after several cuts, it's finally there now. It's safe to expect that the uncut version will find its way on DVD/Blu-ray later.

TCM 3D is a sequel to the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre from 1974 and has nothing to do with the remake from 2003 or the prequel TCM: The Beginning from 2006. Also, the sequels from the 80s and 90s don't play a role here.
