“SPEAK NO EVIL” REMAKE GETS “R” RATING FOR BLUMHOUSE

Posted on: December 29th, 2023

Blumhouse continue their hard turn into R-rated horror, shying away from their PG-13 beginnings with James Watkins’ Speak No Evil” remake.

The film, an English-language version of the harrowing 2022 Danish tale, has received an R rating from the MPA, specifically for “strong violence and sexual content.”

As we reported back in the summer, Speak No Evil stars James McAvoy in his third collaboration with Blumhouse, alongside Terminator: Dark Fate actress Mekenzie Davis.

Blumhouse will release the remake on August 9th 2024, adding to an already heaving horror slate for the coming year.

The 2022 original is described as follows in its official logline:
“A Danish family visits a Dutch family they met on a holiday. What was supposed to be an idyllic weekend slowly starts unravelling as the Danes try to stay polite in the face of unpleasantness.”

Sounds like plenty of opportunities for some horrifying mind-games, and evidently some unrelenting terror.

We’ll report on the film’s box-office performance following it’s August 9th release.
