The Conjuring Starts With R-Rating in Cinemas
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:
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:
