Halloween PG-13?

06.15.2007by: Scott Carmichael

Wow, if this is true could it suck anymore? Rumor has it that Rob Zombie's re-envisioning of HALLOWEEN may be rated PG-13. PG-13; What the f**k!

This rumor has been floating around FEARnet.com where the word is that Dimension Films and the Weinstein Company are trying to have HALLOWEEN re-cut to fit into a PG-13 market.

There seems to be a notion that because films like HOSTEL: PART 2 and GRINDHOUSE did so poor at the box office, these companies are thinking twice about releasing another R rated into the market. Which I personally believe is utter bull-sh*t!

I understand the fact that when films have a PG-13 rating you have the possibility of having a larger clientele basis, but when you re-cut a film that was meant to carry nothing lower than an R rating, you end up with a piece of crap that no one wants to watch, no matter what age.

With all that in mind, further rumor has spread and apparently Ryan over at Shock till you Drop spoke with Zombie today via email and Zombie said "I don't watch PG-13 films let alone make them."

Truthfully I don't know what to make of this whole situation. I remember Zombie having problems with HOUSE OF A 1000 CORPSES because of the same kind of thing. The production company wanted a "lighter cut". I mean I know it's Rob's film, but in the end who really has the say? It'll be interesting to see how this does pan out.    

Hey Johnny Cash, what do you think of a Halloween that's rated PG-13?

No one is worried about too much gore. At least I'm not. I just feel like Hostel has too much needless gore. Watching someone strapped to a chair and tortured is boring. If you have people being chased and cut up with Chainsaws count me in.

If you have naked chicks running through the woods and then being ripped in half and their guts fall out, count me in.

Give me the grossest crap you can muster as long as there is some story revolving around it and I'm in.

PG-13??!!

Hostel II didn't do that well because its a sequel to a film that alot of people disliked(plus the obvious Summer Blockbusters killed its theatre time too)but Halloween as PG-13 does not sound good...I hope this is just a rumour...

The original would easily pass as PG-13. What's the big deal here? ah! don't tell me Robs relying on explicit unnecesssary shock horror to sell tickets!?! I am surprised!! [NOT]

haha

Reading what everone thinks about HOSTEL part TWO, it may be a good thing to make it PG-13... everyone is complaining about TOO MUCH GORE and shit like that SO..... apparently "HORROR fans" aren't going to see real HORROR movies. It's sickening to me that GRINDHOUSE and HOSTEL PART II did so bad. How is it that we FRIDAY the 13th lovers can be worried about plot and TOO MUCH GORE AND NUDITY. What the fuck is going on? I'm so sick of the talking shit about ROTH, who's the last guy that MADE a

I'm so sick of the talking shit about ROTH, who's the last guy that MADE a new REAL HORROR MOVIE? Rob Zombie recycles already used material. The reason they're making PG-13 movies and REMAKES is because people see them, and don't see R-RATED REAL horror.

I could care less what the HALLOWEEN remake is rated at this point. Everyone is like "UHH MAN! NO R?" Yet they complain about the GORE, LANGUAGE, and NUDITY in a movie like HOSTEL. PSSSSHHHH.

and I LOVE Rob Zombie, and I hate PG-13 too, and I am also tired of Torture movies... I'm glad to see that people want HALLOWEEN to be R, but if it's an R... we have to go out and see it and support it... even if it sucks. We need to stop this.

So Tiresome

Hopefully it doesn't happen (no way of knowing 'til it's released), but I'm just so f***ing sick of studios trying to hit a larger demographic. Are you trying to piss everyone off?

I hope not...

I don't hold up to much hope for the remake anyway but if it's PG13 it will blow.

OK what the fuck

Gotta be some guy fucking around. This requires a bigger stretch of the imagination than when we heard LFODH was PG-13.

If they do this recut, Zombie will probably denounce it, and make damn sure people don't associate him with it.

And it'll be roughly 10 minutes long if they cut it. Including previews.

I swear to GOD

I can almost garuntee this isn't true, if. There's no way that you can have a Haloween movie, remake or not, be PG-13. If it is, it would be the most retarded thing ever put on screen. Hell, the Trailor was almost rated R. If it is, noone will go see it.

The casting call sheets listed tons of characters being nude. There is animal torture. Underage sex and drink/drug use. If they cut it to PG-13 aint nothin gonna be left

No way

No way this is true. Rob Zombie would rather drop dead then make a 'Pg-13' rated 'Halloween' film. I won't believe this till I see it, and then, I will be pissed.
