“The Conjuring” receives R rating for being too scary?

March 31, 2013

Although James Wan planned for THE CONJURING  to receive a PG-13, the ratings board came back with an R rating simply because the film was “too scary”.  They cited no specific scenes that could be altered or removed, but also didn’t mess with Wan’s film, which the director was thankful for.  Since the film didn’t receive the rating for blood or gore, let’s hope we get a psychologically scary as hell flick since it got an R rating.

Synopsis: “Before there was Amityville, there was Harrisville. Based on a true story, The Conjuring tells the horrifying tale of how world-renowned paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren were called upon to help a family terrorized by a dark presence in a secluded farmhouse. Forced to confront a powerful demonic entity, the Warrens find themselves caught in the most terrifying case of their lives.

The Conjuring, opening July 19th, stars Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, Ron Livingston, Lili Taylor, Joey King and Mackenzie Foy.
