Two weeks ago, Bloody Disgusting reported that Rob Zombie’s upcoming horror film 31 received the dreaded NC-17 rating from the MPAA not once but twice! Now it seems that enough alterations were made for the rating board to issue a more theater-safe R, although it’s still going to feature, “strong bloody horror violence, pervasive language, sexual content and drug use.”

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, which stars Sheri Moon Zombie, Malcolm McDowell, Richard Brake, Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs, Jeff Daniel Phillips, and even Meg Foster, will premiere at Sundance later this month.
