Evil Dead  - Director Alvarez Talks Versions
The remake of Evil Dead is the hot topic among horror fans at the moment. The released trailers certainly heated up talks and expectations and put the film on the most wanted lists of many people. Those clips also leave no doubt about the rating for the theatrical release, which will certainly be an "R". Producer Sam Raimi hinted at this in previous interviews.
Now, director Fede Alvarez talked to Collider and shed some light on the issues with the MPAA rating and confirms that it will be start with an R rating and not with an NC-17.
Furthermore, Alvarez talked about the infamous rape scene of the original film, which will of course also be in the remake.
It's interesting that there will be different cuts of the movie that will vary in the amount of violence and gore in order to secure the R rating. It can be expected that the most violent material will be available on DVD/BD later on.
Evil Dead starts in US cinemas on April 12th and in British cinemas on April 19th, 2013.
