The Conjuring Starts With R-Rating in Cinemas

Horrorfilm by James Wan Too Scary for PG-13

With Saw, James Wan created one of the most lucrative horror film series in history and stayed faithful to the genre with almost every other movie he directed. The Conjuring is his next output and initially, Wan was ordered to design it for a PG-13 rating. Unfortunately for him, that went wrong.

The MPAA thought otherwise and gave the film an "R" rating with the reasoning that it was simply too scary for the desired rating. Executive producer Walter Hamada commented:

"When we sent it into the board they gave us the R-rating. When we asked them why they basically said, ‘It’s just so scary. [There are] no specific scenes or tone you could take out to get it PG-13."

The producing studio Warner Bros. kept its cool and did not demand cuts for the PG-13. The film will be "R" in cinemas and Wan is very glad about that:

"It’s a testament to the studio too for not [expletive] with the film. It works and they are sticking to it and I’m very thankful for that."

The Conjuring starts in US cinemas on July 19th, 2013.
