Evil Dead [2013] - Details About Cuts Revealed

Director Fede Alvarez Talks MPAA Censorship

The Evil Dead remake starts in US theaters on April 5th, 2013. Since the MPAA slapped the movie with the infamous NC-17 rating, it will be shown in a slightly censored R-rated version. We can now say "slightly" because director Fede Alvarez shared some info about the amount of the censored material in an interview with Collider.

No actually, I mean the MPAA is actually a bizarre thing. You don’t have to try to understand it. We didn’t butcher any scene or anything. We just had to trim. We took out frames here, of [Dick's] precision to certain shots. You know, when she cut her tongue, we were showing a lot. You see the tongue, you get to see the tongue moving. Probably there was a version where we showed more frames. We’ve cut about 20 frames here, that kind of stuff, where you take that out and you get your R rating. They were very nice to us. They were very nice to us because they were saying it was supernatural horror, which means it’s not real, like the other is real. But anyways, I guess there’s worse things that are more offensive. This is because it’s supernatural, it’s not really happening and it’s from, it’s kind of a fantasy universe, so that makes it more friendly. Don’t ask me.

It's a safe bet that the longer cut will be on DVD/BD later. Lead actress Jane Levy already hinted at an extended version:

There were pieces here and there where we were paying homage and I really enjoyed those little moments. Like in the cellar I did this- it’s not actually in the cut in the theaters, but it’ll be in an extended version on the DVD where I sing the “we’re coming to get you” song. That was a lot of fun to play with, and the tree rape scene, I love, it’s my favorite part of the original. It’s just so bizarre.
