EVIL DEAD SCORES NC-17 RATING, WILL NOT BE RATED NC-17
Wouldn't even have to be a wide release. They could do a small release in a few hundred theaters. Would be great, but sadly wont happen.
The MPAA balked at the scene where Martin has barbed wire-entangled sex with the eponymous centipede. It's in the DVD version of the movie, though.
Top that, Evil Dead remake!
I don't think anyone's happy that it's being cut. But in this country a major release can't sustain an NC17 rating because many theaters will not show it, so this was always going to have to go out with an R regardless. It's good to know that when it hits home video there will be an unrated version.
