The MPAA has made it official! Fede Alvarez’s remake of the 1981 Sam Raimi classic Evil Dead has earned itself a rating, and while we’re happy about it, we’re still ecstatic for the possibility of an unrated Blu-ray/DVD release! Please, Sony, make it so!
The film has been rated R for “strong bloody violence and gore, some sexual content and language.”
Ghost House Pictures is producing the much anticipated remake of The Evil Dead, the film that effectively launched the careers of Sam Raimi (Spider-Man franchise, Darkman, Drag Me to Hell), Rob Tapert (30 Days of Night), and Bruce Campbell, who played the Ash character and was co-producer of the original. They are now back to produce an Evil Dead for today’s audience that’s high on the horror, gore, plot twists, and more from a screenplay written by Fede Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues with Diablo Cody. Executive producers are J.R. Young, Nathan Kahane, Joseph Drake, and Peter Schlessel.
