Sorority Row, despite not being a film about naked college girls, apparently caught everyone’s interest this week when it was revealed that the film would be given an R rating. According to ShockTillYouDrop,
According to an insider close to the production who shall remain nameless (but is at the top of the food chain), the film will be rated R for “strong bloody violence, language, some sexuality/nudity and some partying.” Interesting, because looking at the trailer you might automatically peg this one as a PG-13 thriller.
I’m actually not terribly surprised. I know the trailer may give people a PG-13 vibe, but I got more of a My Bloody Valentine vibe off of it, and we know that one was a hard R. Here’s the trailer:
I know everyone dislikes PG-13 horror films, but there have been some true gems that were PG-13 (Darkness Falls, The Ring), and hell, even Jaws was PG. Still, this film being rated R can only help what really looks like a stupid film. Since when does “let’s cut up the body” mean “stab her in the heart with a tire iron?” Ugh. And the Margot Kidder scene?
