The world cannot wait. The Evil Dead remake launches one week earlier! 4/5/13. You demanded it – you got it!
So, there you have it from ‘The Chin’ himself. Evil Dead will be released in theaters in the US on April 5, 2013. It is unclear if this affects international release dates as well.

This comes hot on the heels of the report that Evil Dead had originally received an NC-17 rating. It has been pared down to an R. Essentially, this means that the director, Fede Alvarez, had to take that chainsaw above to the film to get the R rating to get it into the theaters. Cinemas are notorious for not playing NC-17 films. What we can look forward to in the unrated Blu-Ray which will inevitably release following the theatrical run.
