Frontière(s) Returns

Bumped, but not gone!Last week we noticed that Xavier Gens’ Frontière(s) went missing from After Dark Horror Fest‘s final roster of films that will start playing nationwide on November 9th. It was a pretty sad turn of events simply because the movie was about Neo-Nazis and extreme gore.

Turns out that the film was just too much, to be more precise … the NC-17 rating was too much for After Dark. The highest rating they accept for films is R according to the festival’s head Courtney Solomon during an interview with Fangoria.

All is not lost, though. Solomon also informed Fango that Frontière(s) will still be hitting theatres, untouched, “with a separate NC-17 or unrated release in January 2008.”

Honestly, would you rather see this film cut down to a R or just wait a few months for the full experience? This does seem to be the fate recently of Gens’ theatrical releases; Hitman won’t be saved from the cutting machine as it is trimmed down to get a PG-13 rating. Sad, sad, sad.
