Chained - Germany Gets the NC-17 Version

Finally, the Uncensored Version Comes Out

The serial killer film Chained by director Jennifer Lynch didn't have it easy in the US. The MPAA gave the uncut version the infamous NC-17 rating and upheld that decision after appeal. As a consequence, the distributor cut out a very graphic throat cut in order to obtain the R rating for the theatrical release. Hopes arised that the upcoming DVD/BD could contain the uncensored version but that proved correct only to a certain extent. The film itself was still rated R but the throat cut scene was put into the bonus material.

However, it seems that Germany turns out to be the place of salvation. The German distributor Capelight will release the film there and we asked them whether they would consider releasing the original NC-17 version. The good news is: yes, they will. Even though the film has yet to pass the German rating process (and could possibly face problems there) and will probably come out in May 2013, they assured us that they will release the uncensored version either way. It will also contain an English audio track, so fans who want to avoid the American releases can find an alternative here. After the surprising development regarding a censored US release of Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning while other countries get the uncensored version, Chained will be another example that proves that US film fans can benefit from foreign releases, as well.
