In a world filled with necessary evils, I still have to wonder just how necessary an evil the MPAA actually is. At times it seems that films just get rated depending on their mood or who’s making them. Two new ratings are here for two big horror flicks. Read on for their verdict!
Scott Derrickson’s new film Deliver Us From Evil has officially been rated R by the MPAA for “bloody violence, grisly images, terror throughout, and language.” Look for it in theatres on July 2nd.
New York police officer Ralph Sarchie (Eric Bana), struggling with his own personal issues, begins investigating a series of disturbing and inexplicable crimes. He joins forces with an unconventional priest (Edgar Ramirez), schooled in the rituals of exorcism, to combat the frightening and demonic possessions that are terrorizing their city. Based upon the book, which details Sarchie’s bone-chilling real-life cases.
John Erick Dowdle’s As Above, So Below, which he co-wrote with his brother Drew (The Poughkeepsie Tapes, Quarantine, Devil), has also been handed an R rating for “bloody violence/terror and language throughout.” Look for that one in theatres on August 15.
Miles of twisting catacombs lie beneath the streets of Paris, the eternal home to countless souls. When a team of explorers ventures into the uncharted maze of bones, they uncover the dark secret that lies within this city of the dead. A journey into madness and terror, As Above, So Below reaches deep into the human psyche to reveal the personal demons that come back to haunt us all.
