Aftershock - R-Rated Version is Censored

Original Cut Got the NC-17 Rating

Since the first half of May, Nicolas Lopez' horror film Aftershock can be seen in American cinemas. The film that stars Eli Roth in one of the leading roles got an "R" rating (for strong bloody violence including rape, language, drug content and some nudity). However, the MPAA demanded cuts in order to issue that classification.

As IndieWire reports, the initial rating for the uncensored version was NC-17. And since that is a commercial fiasco for theatrical distribution, Dimension Films decided to apply cuts for the desired "R" rating. Fortunately, the guest appearance of Selena Gomez is not affected by these measures.

It's not too much of a stretch to expect that the uncensored version will see the light of day once it hits DVD and Blu-ray. We'll see what happens.
