Rob Zombie Can’t Get His New Movie ’31′ Below NC-17

By December 26, 2015

Get your beards and your F-bombs ready, kids! It’s Rob Zombie movie time!

A few days ago Rob Zombie took to Facebook to complain about the stingy old bats over at the MPAA because they keep giving his wholesome story about the Buttercream Gang an NC-17 rating. Actually I’m a filthy liar the movie is called 31 and word is it cannot possibly harm the Halloween franchise any further. Whew.

In all seriousness the IMDB synopsis for the bearded one’s new flick reads:

31 tells the story of five carnies in 1976 kidnapped on the morning of Halloween and held hostage in a remote industrial Hell. While trapped, they are forced to play a violent game called 31. The mission is to survive 12 hours against an endless gang of grease-painted maniacs.

Yeah. That sounds like a Rob Zombie movie. Probably stars Sheri Moon Zombie. Hang on, let me check……yup, it does. (That was for real) So far, so good on the Zombie movie front. All the elements are in play. Except the rating of which Rob Zombie says this:

Well, after two tries through the MPAA our rating on 31 remains NC-17. Maybe three is the charm to get an R rating. Why R you ask? Well, because your local theater will not show an NC-17. Even though you are a fucking adult… things much be censored for your enjoyment.

Zombie is hoping to release the film at Sundance. In all seriousness I do agree with him about the MPAA. Personally if everyone would stop being so politically correct mainly the theaters? An NC-17 would actually make movie-goers curious as to why. If the theaters would show the films I think people would go see them. But they must protect our delicate minds apparently. They say the picture is NC17 based on:

Sadistic Graphic Violence, Bizarre Sexuality/Nudity, Pervasive Disturbing Images and Some Strong Language

Sounds like my Friday night! No seriously though, some strong language? Some? In a Rob Zombie movie? Don’t make me laugh!

As far as Zombie goes, I may rant on his movie’s sometimes but I am glad he’s a film maker. Even if you hate it you can’t help but be interested in what he’s going to piss you off with next. But I shant ever forgive him for letting Michael Myers speak. I mean, what the f*ck dude? Stay tuned to GeekNation for more stories of X-rated bearded wonderment.
