Rob Zombie’s ’31’ Finally Receives an R Rating
After battling the MPAA and receiving the NC-17 rating twice, 31 has been stripped down enough to receive an R rating. I’ve read several different articles where people seem to believe that 31 would never make it to a theater. Really? You honestly believe that Rob Zombie wouldn’t cut a film down enough to get an R rating? That would be a gigantic blow to anyone involved with the making of the film. You want people to see your work. Besides, you know that an unrated version will be available on Blu-ray, so everybody wins.
Plot summary from Rob Zombie:
On October 30, 1975, five carnival workers were kidnapped and held hostage until the following night (Halloween), where they are put in a compound. They’re told that they are there to take part in a game named “31” where the goal is to survive past the next 12 hours. This is made difficult by the fact that they are not alone; a violent gang of evil clowns are there and stalking their every move.
