Killer Joe Gets Additional R-Rated Version

The Cut Version Nobody Expected Comes After All

He complained and argued. Director William Friedkin wasn't happy at all when the MPAA classified his latest film Killer Joe with the infamous NC-17. After a appeal that did not change the rating, he declared regarding a censored version of his film:

 

Cutting would not have made it mass appeal. Cutting it would have been the equivalent of what members of the United States government and military leaders said about the Vietnam War. They said, "We have to destroy Vietnam in order to save it," and that's what I would have done to Killer Joe. To get an R rating I would have had to destroy it in order to save it and I wasn't interested in doing that.

 

But that's exactly what happened now. The MPAA lists a censored version of Killer Joe in the latest bulletin. R-Rated for strong and disturbing violence, sexuality, graphic nudity, drug use and language. The film will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on December 21st, 2012 and customers will have to watch out what they buy. While the DVD will only contain the R-Rated version, the Blu-ray will include both the R-Rated and NC-17 version of the thriller. While the distributor decided to surrender the NC-17 rating, they will therefore advertise it as Unrated Director's Cut.
