Evil Dead [2013] - Theatrical Version is the DC

Director Alvarez Considers it his Desired Version

We reported several times about the problems Evil Dead faced at the MPAA and the fact remains that some violent scenes omit some frames that were cut for the "R" rating. Director Fede Alvarez confirms that again in a recent interview with Collider dealing with the upcoming home video release of the film which will only contain the "R" version.

Alvarez states that he considers this version his director's cut and adds that Sam Raimi sees it as the ideal version of the remake, as well and that it isn't up to him whether another version would be put out:

Collider: Do you have any intention of ever putting those seconds back on the film and releasing a director’s cut?

ALVAREZ: Eventually if they do that.  I don’t know it’s really not up to me.  Usually you always see first cut is an extended version, because it’s basically everything you shot, and you have that version and then you start cutting stuff out.  Just to pick up the pace or sometimes stuff didn’t work out the way you wanted it to so you cut it out.  Definitely my favorite cut is the one that got put out.  That’s my favorite version of the film, the one that I put in theaters.  That’s my directors cut, there’s no question about it.  The producers that could have come in and said, “We’re going to cut this a different way”.  That never happened.  Sam saw my cut and said “That the version that it’s supposed to be.”  The cut I showed him was the cut I put out there.  So what everybody saw in the theaters is the director’s cut, and this first DVD is the director’s cut.

At the moment, it doesn't look like the near future holds an Unrated release for fans but never say never. For now, the "R"-rated version of Evil Dead has just been released in the States, the UK follows August 12th, 2013. You can order it at Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk.
