ANTEBELLUM Officially Earns R-Rating for Disturbing Violent Content & More

Lionsgate will release Gerard Bush and Christopher Renz’s horror movie Antebellum with Janelle Monae on VOD come September 18th.

And today we learned that the film has officially earned an R-rating via the MPAA for “disturbing violent content, language, and sexual references.”

Inspired by a nightmare that Bush had following his father’s death, in which his ancestors were haunting him, Antebellum follows a successful author in the modern-day south, who suddenly finds herself transported to the era of the Antebellum South, with its slave plantations.
