Jennifer Lynch’s ‘Chained,’ Acquired By Anchor Bay, Receives An NC-17

The Classification and Rating Appeals Board today upheld the NC-17 rating given to the movie Chained. The Classification and Rating Administration (CARA) had assigned the movie the NC-17 rating for “some explicit violence.

In the appeal brought by Anchor Bay Entertainment, the Appeals Board heard statements on behalf of Chained from Kevin Carney, Executive Director of Marketing at Anchor Bay, and Jennifer Lynch, the Director of the film. The Classification and Rating Administration was represented by Chairman Joan Graves.

From the director of Hisss and Surveillance, and starring Vincent D’Onofrio, Julia Ormond, Jake Weber, Eamon Farren, Conor Leslie and Evan Bird, “Eight year old Tim and his mother Sarah are picked up by Bob, a deranged taxi cab driver on the hunt for his next victim. Tim witnesses his first murder, the murder of his mother, but it would not be his last. Bob keeps Tim as a reluctant protégé, forcing him to clean and bury the bodies of the young women he drags home. Now a teenager, Tim must make a life or death choice between following in Bob’s footsteps or breaking free from his captor.

    IDK that trailer was boring

    Looks interesting, nothing to exhilarating though. They should just leave this Unrated and then do a direct to DVD/VOD release and not even bother with the corrupt MPAA.

    Looks friggin’ excellent. I’m a huge fan of her movies, I even liked Hisss. So, of course, I’ll be seeing this in the theater.
