Two weeks ago, we reported that Rob Zombie’s upcoming horror film 31 received the dreaded NC-17 rating from the MPAA not once but twice! Now it seems that enough alterations were made for the rating board to issue a more theater-safe R, although it’s still going to feature, “strong bloody horror violence, pervasive language, sexual content and drug use.”
In the Halloween-themed slasher, “Five friends are kidnapped on the day before Halloween and are held hostage in a terrifying place named Murder World. While trapped, they must play a violent game called 31, in which the mission is to survive 12 hours against a gang of evil clowns.”
31, which stars Sheri Moon Zombie, Malcolm McDowell, Richard Brake, Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs, Jeff Daniel Phillips, and even Meg Foster, will premiere at Sundance later this month.
