Rejoice! Rob Zombie Gets His ‘R’ Rating for 31

Posted on: January 8th, 2016

We recently reported31 Poster that Rob Zombie was struggling with the MPAA to get 31 an R rating. The film had been branded an NC-17 twice, which means many cinemas would not be able to show 31 at all. In order to secure the film’s theatrical release, Zombie and co. had to secure an ‘R’ rating. Thankfully for them – and us – 31 has finally been rated as an R so it has, in fact, been third time lucky. Hooray!

We’d love to see what Zombie had to cut to secure that more audience friendly rating, so hopefully we’ll get an uncut version digitally or with a DVD/Blu-ray release. Whatever it was, it was a big deal, and this isn’t surprising if you look at Zombie’s shockingly brilliant film past.

Sick Head 31



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 is screening at this month’s Sundance Film Festival, so keep your eyes and ears open for early reactions.
